Horizons is a friendly place to do business

My husband and first went to Horizons to get a car loan at the suggestion of a used car business. They had competitive loan rates. It was easy to go through the application process. Since then we have opened other accounts there. The only issue we have had was with setting up online payments to our son who is attending college out of state. That was a frustrating process and we ended up talking to a manager to get it straight. All in all we are happy with Horizons as a credit union.
