United Acceptance, Inc., (UAI) was formed in September 1991 in Atlanta, Georgia for the purpose of purchasing automobile installment sales contracts (bulk receivables) from used car dealerships that have a "buy here pay here" operation and small captive and independent automobile finance companies. The mission of UAI is to provide a strong financial partner with the used car dealer allowing him to accelerate his profits though the sale of his receivables, hence the UAI slogan "Profits through Partnership". UAI prides itself on providing excellent service 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 auto dealer 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.
