Common questions about car loans in Geelong

Does my car have to be in Geelong to get my loan approved?

No – at Savvy, we can help you get approved to purchase a vehicle in any city, town or even state or territory in Australia, regardless of whether it’s near or far from you. For example, if you were looking for a loan to buy a car in Melbourne, you can still get approved. The same is true if you were looking at one in Perth or even Far North Queensland. You can even get approved for a trade-in outside of Geelong if you’re able to make the journey.

What are my commercial car finance options for my business in Geelong?

There are several options when it comes to commercial vehicle finance. Chattel mortgages essentially serve as the equivalent of a standard car loan, allowing your business to buy it and own it from the outset so it can be included among your assets. However, there’s also a range of leasing options available if you don’t wish to own it straight away. You can speak with your Savvy consultant about the best commercial finance type for your business.

How much will my car loan repayments cost?

There are many factors which impact the cost of your car loan repayment, including the following:

  • The size of your loan
  • The length of your loan term
  • Your interest rate and fees
  • The frequency of your repayments

 

You can simplify the process of working out how much your car loan will cost you each week, fortnight or month with Savvy’s repayment calculator. Simply enter all the information about your loan and you can see how much it’ll cost.

Can I save money on my car loan by purchasing an electric vehicle?

Yes – many lenders in the market today offer a product called a green car loan. This is no different in structure from a standard car loan, but it’s designed specifically for electric, hybrid and other eco-friendly vehicles. It offers a rate discount of up to 0.7%, which could save you hundreds of dollars across your loan. As such, if you’re in the market for an electric vehicle, keep an eye out for green loans which could help you cut down on its cost.
