Owners of classic, vintage or luxury cars don’t necessarily have to sell their vehicles to unlock asset value. Instead, they can use their vehicles as collateral to secure instant cash loans.
What counts as a luxury car?
A luxury car is equipped with advanced performance capabilities, a plush interior, and the latest safety and technology features. Automotive brands like Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Porsche and Jaguar are synonymous with expensive, high-end vehicles.
What are possible benefits of getting a loan against a luxury car?
These types of loans are secured by the appraised value of the car. As a result, anybody who owns a fully paid-up luxury vehicle automatically qualifies for a loan.
Unlike unsecured loans from the bank, lenders specialising in the luxury car niche do not carry out credit assessments or require proof of income. Nor do they advise credit bureaux of transactions.
The entire process is discrete, and has no impact on a client’s credit history or score.
The loans process is quick and easy, and funds are available within 24 hours. The borrowed money can be used to pay for anything, from covering emergency expenses to improving business liquidity.
The terms of the agreement are negotiable and, provided an accredited finance provider, regulated by the National Credit Regulator (NCR), facilitates the loan, the fee structure is transparent, and the interest rates fall within National Credit Act (NCA) guidelines.
