Can I sell my vehicle while it's still under finance?
Your car is held by us as security for the term of your loan or lease. You can sell your car, however if the sale price doesn’t cover your outstanding loan balance with us, you’ll have to pay the difference at the same time. Once you’ve repaid us in full (in cleared funds) we’ll organize to release the security interest.

We’ll set up a direct debit with you when you take out a loan with us.

How can I get Financial Assistance?
If your circumstances have changed recently and you’re unable to manage your loan repayments, we may be able to offer you financial assistance. Financial assistance will be assessed on your individual needs with several options available. These options can be payment reduction for a period, deferral of your repayments for a short period of time or setting up another flexible repayment option.
What happens if I can’t make my next payment?
If you default on your loan payments, you’ll incur default interest and fees. It may also affect your credit rating. If your loan is in default and is secured by a vehicle, we may take enforcement action up to and including repossessing your vehicle.
If you’re struggling to meet your loan repayments, we encourage you to get in touch with us so that we can work out a plan that works for you and meets your debt obligations. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions and we’ll get in touch with you within 48 hours.
Can I release the security over my car and how do I do that?
Our loans are secured against your vehicle. If you’re thinking about selling your car you’ll need to repay us. Once you’ve repaid us in full (in cleared funds) we’ll organize to release the security interest.
The first step is to contact us for a repayment quote; and once we’ve been repaid in full, we’ll organize the release of the security interest for you.
What happens if I pay my loan in full early?
If you’re able to repay your loan in full before the final payment due date, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide you with a repayment quote. Let us know your contract number, the date you expect to repay, and we’ll provide you with the quote.
Please note that repayment quotes are only valid for 7 days and there will be an early termination fee. The fee is calculated based on the type of loan. For Consumer Loans it’s $750 (reducing by $12.50 for every month since the loan commenced). For Commercial Loans it’s 25% of the remaining interest. Once you’ve repaid us in full (in cleared funds) we’ll organize to release the security interest.

Please email email@example.com with the subject line ‘Update My Details’. In the email, include your contract number, address, and a copy of the Certificate of Registration.
