How can I get a car loan fast?

Toyota is running its clearance sale until the 31/01/2020 and other car manufacturers may choose to extend their sales.

If you want to get in on these deals before they run out, you have a few options.

1. Trade in your old car

A dealer trade-in can be one of the easiest and least time consuming ways to get rid of your old set of wheels.

When you take your old car in to the dealership to negotiate a deal on your new car, the value of your current car can be taken into account and the amount deducted from the purchase price. So your sweet 2019 plate clearance deal could be even sweeter!

If you’re trading in your old car, you don’t need to provide the dealer with a roadworthy certificate. You can make the deal immediately rather than having to wait for a buyer, so you can jump behind the wheel of your new car ASAP.

2. Private sale

Most people opt to sell their car privately, either through online classifieds, social media, or parked on the side of the road.

Selling your car privately means you get to decide on the selling price and you’ll often make more of a profit than if you had traded it in.

Private sales mean doing a bit more work but on the upside, you don’t have to deal with a car dealer. Instead, you’ll have to deal directly with buyers who will scrutinise the car from top to bottom, looking for defects.

You’ll have to present a roadworthy certificate, proof of service and maintenance history.

3. Take out a car loan

So you’ve sold your old car and are ready to snap up an end of year car plate deal. If the sale of your old car hasn’t left you with enough money to cover your new car, you’ll need to take out a car loan.

You can save yourself a lot of time and heartache if you pre-qualify for a loan before negotiating for a car. You can apply to pre-qualify with loans.com.au in a few minutes by talking with one of our expert lenders. Once you have pre-qualified, you can avoid wasting time looking at cars in the wrong price range.

You may also want to use our car loan repayment calculator to work out what your repayments could look like.

If you’re ready to apply for a car loan, visit loans.com.au and fill out an online application form. One of our loan specialists will then review your application and help you choose the best loan for your needs.

Once you’ve applied, you’ll need to supply some documentation which you can do easily through onTrack, our online portal.

After that, your car loan will (hopefully) be approved, your loan documentation signed sealed and delivered, and the loan will be settled.

We’ve got some competitive rates on personal car loans, like our New Car Loan where you can borrow from as little as $5,000 to cover the costs of a new set of wheels to get you on your way. You can make extra repayments, so your beloved car could be yours sooner than you think.
