Company History and Mission

United Acceptance, Inc., (UAI) is a financial organization, founded in 1991, that provides capital and servicing solutions to automobile dealerships that have a "buy here pay here" operation, captive finance companies, and independent finance companies.

The mission of UAI is to be a strong financial partner to used car dealerships, allowing them to accelerate their profits though the sale of their receivables, hence the UAI slogan "Profits Through Partnership". UAI prides itself on providing the absolute best service in the industry to both the auto dealer and the loan holder. This is accomplished by hiring employees who have strong ethics of work and character, and who go the extra mile to get the job done.

Forging strong long-term relationships with both auto dealers and our employees has contributed to the growth of UAI from a local Atlanta based company to an organization that purchases receivables across the nation.
