Car loans – the details

Being better informed makes for better decisions. Have a question or two? Check out these helpful FAQs or get in touch with the team.

What is a vehicle loan?

Vehicle loans can be used for all types of reasons, whether it is financing the purchase of a motorbike, car, carvan, campervan, boat or even a jetski. 
A vehicle loan could also be using an existing car you own to utilize the equity within your vehicle to borrow against and achieve a must lower interest rate than a personal loan.

How does a cashraise work?

Cashraising is where you use a vehicle that you already own, and us it as security for your loan to achieve a much lower interest rate, compare to an unsecured loan. Think about it like a mortgage but secured against a car, motorbike, boat, jetski or even commercial vehicles.

Can I pay off my vehicle loan early?

Yes, here at better we are proud of the tools we have to offer to help our clients pay off their debt faster and get debt free earlier. 
Some lenders will have fees and charges within their loan contracts if your loan is repaid before the term of the loan. So check the fine print before signing your contract.

Can I get a vehicle loan if I have poor credit history?

Bad credit can seem like a burden when trying to get approved. A vehicle loan does help mitigate some of the risks from a lender when providing finance as there is collateral to claim against if the loan is unpaid.
Although being offered finance is not a given, a vehicle loan does open more options when there is a vehicle to use as security. 

Can I refinance an existing vehicle loan?

Yes. You can refinance your loan to a different lender even if you have finance secured against a vehicle. 
Refinancing can be a good option to reduce your annual interest rate, saving you money in the long run and helping to pay off your debt faster.
Make sure you consider fees to repay your existing debt early, and any additional fees in securing the new finance.
