Truck Finance Brisbane: How to get Approved

Getting truck finance in Brisbane can be a stressful experience, but it doesn’t have to be that way. It is important to know what you are looking for when applying for truck financing or loans in Brisbane. The goal of this blog post is to give you the knowledge necessary to make an informed decision about your truck financing or loan application. We will cover: types of loans, short-term ABN registrations, ATO tax debts, private sales, older trucks and refinances as well as capital or equity raising and bad credit including defaults or judgements. Finally we will talk about how the process works once you get approval for a truck finance loan.

Truck loan interest rates

Truck loan interest rates are set by the lender and it determines how much you will pay for your loan or truck finance over a period of time. Interest rates fluctuate constantly, and are generally fixed for the life of your loan. To make sure that you’re paying as little as possible, do some research on what current interest rates are like or use a finance broker to do the work for you.

What is a comparison rate?

A comparison rate is a figure that shows the true cost of your loan over time. The annualised interest rate, or APR (annual percentage rate), is also known as the ‘real’ interest rates because it’s based on how much you will pay in total for the life of your loan. It takes into account all fees and charges.

What loan amounts are available?

The minimum truck loan amount that you can apply for is $10,000. If you are looking to buy a newer truck or lease one instead of borrowing the money, then there is no limit on how much money you can borrow from an approved lender.

Do I need a deposit?

If you owner property, or in the industry are considered to be ‘asset-backed’, this means you have a good chance of getting approved for a truck finance without having to put any money down.

Is my credit score important?

Yes, your credit score is important if you are looking to get a loan. You need at least an average or 550-600 credit score in order to be eligible for truck financing and loans from most lenders. It’s worth doing some research on what type of lender will offer the best deal given your current situation. If you have a low credit score, then it may be worth considering going for an alternative loan type such as a fully verified loan, or considering a lender who specialises in helping borrowers with bad credit.

Do I need a good credit history?

Your credit history is only one of the factors that lenders will take into account when deciding whether to approve your loan. It’s worth checking out if you have any judgements or defaults on your record and then making sure these are paid off accordingly before submitting an application for a truck finance loan in Brisbane.

How do I get a copy of my credit file?

You can apply for a free copy of your file from each provider by filling out an application form online. This will let you know if there are any errors in the information or judgements listed on your record and it is possible to correct these before applying for a loan.

If I have poor credit, what are my options?

If you have bad credit, it is important to know that there are some lenders who may still be able to offer truck financing or loans.

What is a low-doc truck loan?

Low-doc loans are a type of financing for purchasing or leasing trucks that require little to no documentation and verification of income. This is attractive because it takes less time to process applications and get approved, which can save you money if you need your truck quickly.

Is it hard to get truck finance or truck loans as an Owner Operator?

It’s important that you know what type of truck suits your needs before you start looking at any trucks.

Yes, it’s pretty easy and very similar to buying a truck from a dealer, it just involves a few extra pieces of paperwork, such as a copy of the registration papers and the details of who the lender needs to pay for the trailer. We’ll take care of that for you. That’s what we’re here for.

How much can I borrow?

That’s exactly what our experienced brokers can tell you. Fill in the Quick Quote form and we’ll be able send you back some numbers.

How long does it take to get truck finance in Brisbane?

If you have your paperwork handy, from the time you call us to the time you are approved, can be less than 4 hours. Realistically, we know from experience that many people are often at work or have other more important things going on (i.e. the kids are screaming in the background), so by the time most people are typically ready to get things moving, allowing 24-48 hours is a good place to start. We can move things as quickly or as slowly as you want – the choice is yours.

I have bad credit, can I still get truck finance?

Yes, there’s not much we haven’t seen. We are experts in getting loans approved when they have been declined elsewhere. We have been helping people with bad credit for over 20 years.

I’ve only had an ABN for 1 day, can I get a loan?

Yes, for the right client, it’s certainly possible. Simply request a finance Quick Quote now and we’ll send you back a quote. There’s a couple of minor differences in the questions the lender might ask, but apart from that it’s pretty straight forward and easy.

How can I get great truck finance quote?

The right truck finance quote for you will come down to your individual business and circumstances. There is no ‘one size fits all’ answer. When comparing equipment finance, factors such as how long you want to borrow the money for and whether you want to pay it out early can also weigh in on the final choice you’ll make.

Hints and tips

Brokers can equal better deals

Finding the best interest rate is only half the job of a broker, if you are to find the overall best deal. A broker will also help you to get your loan approved. We’ll take the time to quickly understand your individual situation prior to providing you with a written quote. At You Can Finance we have an extensive panel of lenders and over 20 years of industry experience and are confident that we can assist you in finding a great deal.

Preparation is key to a quick approval

Naturally, the easiest and quickest loan approvals tend to be offered to those who have all their paperwork up to date and on hand. However, if you are in this category, you’re probably the exception to the rule, as most people are focused on what’s happening today and sorting out the paperwork later. We know how hard most people work, so if your paperwork is not up-to-date, we can still get you approved quickly and easily. Contact us today to find out how easy it really is.
