We can match you with flexible lenders who enable you to make free additional contributions to your loan and complete your repayments early without cost.

New or used

You can choose either a new or used car to purchase with your loan, providing more flexibility to choose from a wider range of vehicles on sale.

Low fees

We work with lenders who are able to waive ongoing (up to $20) and establishment fees (up to $600) to help you cut down on the overall cost of your loan.

The documents you’ll need when applying for car finance

Common car finance queries from Sydney borrowers

Does my car have to be purchased in Sydney?

No – your loan can be approved to purchase a car anywhere in Australia. It doesn’t matter where your car is located at the point of purchase; we can help your application be successful for cars sources locally or interstate.

How quickly will my car loan be approved?

Thanks to our advanced technology and dedicated consultants, your application can be completed from quick quote to having the funds sent to your seller in as few as 48 hours. While this may be affected by other aspects of your application, such as your borrowing history and whether you have the required documents, you can be sure you’ll be on the road in no time when you apply through Savvy.

What are my car loan options if I’m self-employed?

Self-employed workers in Sydney can apply for a standard, private-use car loan by supplying tax returns from the previous two financial years in place of payslips. However, if you can’t do this, you’re limited to commercial finance products, namely a low doc car loan. This allows you to instead submit documents like profit and loss statements, BAS and an income declaration, but your car must be used at least 50% of the time for business purposes.

Can I buy my car from a private seller?

Yes – our car loan deals aren’t just limited to cars bought from dealerships. Our lenders are open-minded when it comes to where you purchase your car from, so we can help you out with approval from whatever or wherever your seller is, including private sales.

Should I get pre-approved for my car loan?

Yes – there are a number of benefits to getting pre-approved for a car loan. This provides you a defined ceiling on the amount you’re able to borrow, giving you more power in the negotiation process with your dealer or seller. If they know you won’t be approved for a loan beyond $25,000, for instance, they won’t try to force your agreed price far beyond that.

What other costs will I have to budget for with my car loan?

Cars can also come with stamp duty, vehicle registration, insurance and extended warranties on top of your existing payments. Fortunately, you can speak to your Savvy consultant about extending your loan amount to cover these costs in addition to that of your car.

What happens with my loan if my car is written off under finance?

If you’re involved in an accident and your car is written off, you’ll be required to pay out the remainder of your loan. Your car will always be covered by a comprehensive insurance policy for this reason, so this will help ease the financial burden in many cases and prevent you from paying the full amount upfront.
