With more than 20 years in the industry, IFS has a team of dedicated, experienced professionals specializing in finance, customer service and the automotive industry.
“We are very honored to be a part of the PRNDL team,” said Tim Janssen, President, IFS. “Our exemplary and convenient process makes financing a PRNDL customer very easy and parallels PRNDL’s goal of having a truly exciting online car buying experience. We can help most PRNDL customers with perfect or bruised credit. All can be done from the comfort of your home.”

Visitors to PRNDL.com can also take advantage of financing from Bank of America, PRNDL's founding finance provider, as well as many other tips and services typically associated with an automobile purchase -- such as vehicle protection plans from Century Warranty Services, and a comprehensive 150-point inspection performed by InspectMyRide. These products and services also benefit private sellers by simplifying the transaction, providing tools such as independent inspections and shipping. They also give prospective buyers financing options so they can quickly close the deal when the buyer is motivated.
