Questions

How can I get a great car loan?

The right car loan for you will come down to your individual circumstances. There is no ‘one size fits all’ answer. When comparing a car loan, 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.

How long does it take to get a car loan quote?

Not long at all. You can request a Quick Quote online and we’ll have it back to you in no time at all. Alternatively, we can chat over the phone to find out what you’re looking for and then email or post it to you in writing. Either way, as quickly as you can answer the questions relevant to your situation, we can give you a quote.

What kinds of things do I need to provide to get an approval?

These days, with internet banking, if you work for someone else (e.g. PAYG), you really only need to start by sending us your 2 most recent payslips and a copy of your photographic ID (i.e. Driver’s Licence). If you’re self-employed and hold your own ABN, just start by sending us a copy of your Driver’s Licence. If we need anything else from there, we’ll let you know exactly what the lender requires as it varies considerably depending upon your circumstances. Generally, a self-employed application is a very straight forward and easy process.

How much can I spend?

That’s exactly what we can help you with – request a Quick Quote now and we’ll let you know within a few minutes. You may have been declined and told you were unable to afford the loan. A good broker should be able to give you a reasonable idea of what you can afford before you put in an application – just ask and we can help you.

Can I buy a car from a private seller?

Yes, with some lenders, the rate will be the same if you buy privately or from a dealer. Some lenders will also require you to engage a third-party inspector to view the car prior to settlement. Alternatively, we can recommend a lender that will provide you with a great price and the flexibility you require.

Do I need to inspect the car before I purchase it?

It’s generally advisable to make sure you are happy with the car you are buying, however the choice is entirely yours. Some finance companies request a third party inspect the vehicle for finance purposes to make sure the VIN and Engine number match the registration papers, and some clients choose to get a mechanical inspection done at the same time. The choice is yours.

Hints and tips

What can I do to get the best deal?

Long term stable employment and the time you have lived in both your current and previous homes go a long way to making a lot of lenders feel comfortable that you will be a low risk borrower. If the lender feels that you are low risk, then you’ll more likely be eligible for the best car loan deals. However, there are more important things in life that override your decisions to move jobs or homes. So focus on things like making sure that you pay your bills on time and avoid getting any reversals or dishonours on your bank statements, as these can often lead you further away from the best deals.

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.
