It’s common for businesses to take out short-term loans to bridge a temporary gap in cash flow or to cover an unexpected expense.
Traditional bank loans are an obvious option but asset-based loans are a safer and quicker option.
Businesses can use a paid-off company vehicle to secure an asset-based loan in Cape Town.

How asset-based loans against business vehicles work
An asset-based loan is based on the value of an asset. This means you can borrow money up to the resale value of your business vehicle. Because this type of loan is secured by an asset and not by income, it’s a lot quicker and easier to secure a loan.
Simply start your application online or by calling or WhatsApp 086 111 2866. You’ll then bring the car to the Cape Town branch to be evaluated.
Based on this evaluation, you’ll be offered a loan amount. If you’re happy, you sign the loan agreement. We take temporary possession of your vehicle and the funds are transferred into your account within 24 hours.
Your vehicle will be securely stored as collateral for the duration of the loan and returned to you once the loan and the interest are repaid in full. The loan doesn’t affect your ownership of the vehicle and no-one uses your vehicle during the loan period.
Potential benefits, compared to other loan types
Asset-based loans offer a number of advantages over traditional bank loans.
No credit rating impact
An asset-based loan is not based on your business’ credit rating. The loan doesn’t affect your credit score even if you default on the loan.
Fast access to funds
The application process for an asset-based loan is simple and fast. Your business can have access to funds almost instantaneously.
In the unlikely event that you default on the loan, your business vehicle is sold to cover the loan amount. This means the bad debt can’t affect the rest of your business assets or the business itself.
You get to keep the vehicle
Many people would opt for selling the vehicle to cover a temporary cash-flow issue. With a loan, you still have the vehicle once the loan is repaid.
There’s no need to submit account statements or other business documentation to apply for a loan that’s based on a business vehicle.
