Scooter and moped financing? Yeah, we do that.



Nothing beats back the high price of gas than a vehicle that can get upwards of 70-100 miles per gallon.

Now that fuel prices are what they are, people are considering the moped/scooter (which do you say? I like scooters, just because mopeds are cycles with pedals) as a serious transportation option. A helmet, a few lessons, and you’re off – zipping around town.

Europeans take mopeds very seriously: the United Kingdom offers rural Englanders scooter options for work transportation, while some European brands are so famous and iconic they warrant movie appearances.

American credit unions are getting in on the act, offering special financing for scooters to promote their fuel-economy advantages. And why not? The great fuel mileage, the low cost of insurance, and the affordable price (even gangs!) make a moped an attractive choice. Just make sure you follow your state’s local scooter laws.

Locally, you have options. There are places in Jackson, Chelsea, and Battle Creek that sell motorscooters. I found them using a simple Google search, but there are some motorcycle shops that sell scooters. Financing? We do that, too.

Are you a moped owner? Are you thinking about getting one? Let us know in the comments!


Rebate extended through Saturday, with longer branch hours

A heads-up: we’re extending our Great American 1 Rebate offer through Saturday, and we’re extending all branch hours to 7 p.m. on Friday and until 4 p.m. on Saturday. That way you can pop in to any branch after work this weekend and get your loan closed.

Check out all our branch hours and locations to see what works best for you.


Who has better interest rates?

Credit unions, of course. And here’s proof. It’s a survey, by NAFCU, of state credit unions and banks – showing their lowest, highest, and average interest rates for auto loans, money markets, certificates, etc.

Credit Unions consistently beat banks’ interest rates – lower for loans, higher for savings – because we are member-owned and not-for-profit.
