Get on the road in no time!
In our fast-paced world, there is a certain demand for a car to get you where you need to go without the hassle of public transport. Cars may be a necessity; however, they can also drain your pockets. Used car loans could be your perfect match. With our simple and fast application process, we could have you on the road in no time at all.
So, it can be tricky to find the right personal loans for used car finance. There are so many options and vendors and navigating fine print and complicated deals can be time-consuming.
Jacaranda Finance is an Australian online loan company based in Brisbane. We offer fast, no fuss finance for individuals in need. We are 100% online, so you can apply from the comfort of your living room.
What are used car loans?
Jacaranda Finance can offer used car finance for customers that are 100% online with fast approval.
When we say fast approval, we mean it! Our application could take you just minutes to fill out and you could have an outcome in as little as 60 minutes (if you apply in normal business hours). However, this is not a guarantee. Nevertheless, we are very quick!
Jacaranda Finance offers car finance from $5,000 to $35,000 over a term of 1-5 years.
How quickly could I receive my funds after approval?
We are a 100% online company. Therefore, you won’t have to waste time making appointments with bank managers or waiting in queues.
If your application is submitted during business hours you could have an outcome within 60 minutes! However, if we require any additional information, it can take a little longer to hear from us. As a result, just be sure to keep an eye on your phone and email.
Therefore, if you are approved, we’ll send you your loan contract to read through carefully, sign and send back. Once we receive your signed contract, we’ll transfer you the cash. The time it takes for the funds to reach your account is dependent on bank processing time.
Are used car loans secured?
The short answer is yes. All of Jacaranda’s car loans are secured. What are secured loans? We’re glad you asked. Secured car loans are loans that are backed by equity or collateral such as a vehicle. Generally all loans above $2,000 are secured as it’s less risky for the lender.
You can apply for a secured car loan from $5,000 to $35,000. Whether you’re applying for a new or used car, we’ve got you covered. With our secured loans, you can use the vehicle you are buying as security for your loan. This is a type of insurance for the lender in case you’re not able to make the repayment. Jacaranda will only repossess a vehicle as a last resort. So, long as you make consistent repayment and let us know if you have any financial changes, you won’t need to worry.
How does Jacaranda Finance work?

Refine your search
Begin to refine your search by picking a model, make, price, auto or manual. Take note of other buyers’ reviews of the car you are looking at.
Contact the seller
When you make initial contact with the seller, jot down a few questions to ensure you don’t forget anything. Such as:
- How long have they owned the car?
- Why are they selling it?
- Has the vehicle sustained damage?
- What is the condition of the car and are there issues or damages that have not been noted in the ad?
- Has it qualified for a roadworthy?
- Do you have a copy of the car’s service history and how extensive is it?
Arranging an inspection
If you are interested in a car from a private seller, insist on inspecting the car at their home address.
Check the car’s history
It’s handy to double check the car’s history to ensure it has not been stolen, has outstanding finance or a previous insurance write-off. Just use the car’s VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and check the state databases for a small fee.
Checking the car
Inspect the car for damages and adjust your price offer accordingly. Check all the equipment on the car works when you take it out for a test drive.
Make a list of faults you find on the car and adjust your price offer. Suggest a figure below the asking price, you never know if you don’t ask!
Payment and paperwork
