Unexpected bills are pretty much any bill that you get hit with that you didn’t see coming. Perhaps it completely slipped your mind or maybe it’s come up without any warning whatsoever. Whatever the reason, an unexpected bills loan from Jacaranda Finance has you covered.
Some examples of an unexpected bill include:
- Emergency medical/dental bills
- Veterinary bills
- Broken phone, tablet or laptop
- Car tow and repairs
- Household problems (e.g. plumbing, electrical, termite damage, water damage)
- Clothes for a new job that requires you to dress up every day
- Being ill and not having paid days off from work
- White goods repairs/ replacements
- Expenses for your kids’ school activities
- Replacing stolen belongings
- Destination wedding for a friend or relative
- Family emergencies that require travel
These are just a few examples of what you could use an unexpected bills loan for. Other unexpected bills could include expenses that you forgot were due. For example your car registration, electricity bill, or a hefty phone bill.
We pride ourselves on our customer service excellence which is why we offer one of the fastest unexpected bills loan services in Australia. When applying for an unexpected bills loan through Jacaranda Finance we understand that time is of the essence. Therefore, we have designed our application process to be as fast and simple as it could possibly be.
Once you’ve completed our short application form and clicked ‘submit’, we’ll tell you straight away if we’re able to make you an offer or not. The last thing we want to do is waste your precious time and so if we’re not the right match for you, we’ll let you know. Otherwise, you’ll receive a conditional approval immediately. From there it will only take us a short 60 minutes to come back to you with an official offer.
As soon as we’ve approved your application we’ll send you an electronic contract. You’ll just need to read over the contract, sign it and then email it back to us. Once we’ve received your signed contract, we’ll transfer you your unexpected bills loan straight away! It won’t take long at all for you to see those funds in your account. However, if the policies of your bank are a little more stringent, it could take a little longer. The worst case scenario would be that you receive the money the following business day.
The beauty of our unexpected bills loan is that you can apply for one at any time of the day. However, if you do submit an application outside our normal hours, it may take a little longer for us to process it.
Our hours of business are:
Monday – Thursday: 8am – 6pm
Friday: 8am – 4pm
Saturday: 8am – 12pm
However, perhaps you get to 11:30 at night and you drop your laptop on the tiled floors. It’s the middle of the week and you need your laptop for work. So, what do you do? Just jump on your phone or tablet and submit an application for an unexpected bills loan with Jacaranda Finance! You’ll know straight away if we’re able to help you out and, if so, your application will be one of the first ones we look at as soon as we step foot back in the office. You could have your laptop fixed by lunchtime, if not dinner! How quick is that?
As borrowing money is always something you should be 100% certain about, there are a number of things you should establish before submitting your loan application.

- What is the cost of my unexpected bills loan?
- How long do I have to pay off the loan?
- How do I plan to pay back my unexpected bills loan?

If your application was not successful then it could be due to a number of reasons. As responsible lenders, we will never approve an application if we don’t believe that a person is able to repay their loan. We always go the extra mile to assess a client’s financial situation and relationship with money so that we can make a 100% educated decision on their ability to pay back their loan. We look at your income and spending habits via your internet banking credentials as well as your credit history and your employment/ Centrelink payment history.
If your application is declined and you’re unsure as to why we recommend email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from our lovely team will be happy to look into it for you.
While we do conduct credit checks on some of our new customers, credit history is not the only thing we look at. We understand that things happen sometimes and mistakes are made. Those mistakes are in the past and as long as you’re willing to make the effort to learn from them, you shouldn’t be judged one them alone.
We believe that we get a much more accurate representation of your true financial situation by focusing more on your income and your relationship with money. We use custom-built technology to access 90 days of your bank statements to get a better look at your individual spending habits. This allows us to gain a more general understanding of your situation as a whole instead of just your past mistakes.
Like we said, the only reason we would decline an application is if the applicant was unable to repay their loan. Your credit rating may not have anything to do with it. Therefore, bad credit or not, apply today for your unexpected bills loan. We guarantee we’ll always give everyone a fair go.
As we mentioned briefly before, we used custom-built technology. It allows us access to read-only copies of your bank statements from the last 90 days. This means that you don’t need to search through pages of bank statements to manually send through to us. This technology is also the reason our application form only takes 4 minutes to complete.
Apart from it being a huge time-saver, the main reason we use this system rather than accepting manually submitted bank statements is that we’ve had problems with identity theft and fraud in the past. This system is far more secure for you and will save you a lot of time and effort. The secure system will simply use the internet banking credentials that you provide to grab read-only copies of your statements. No one is actually logging in to your account nor will anyone have access to your funds.
Your login details will be deleted 2 minutes after submitting them (yep, it’s that fast) and if you do have any concerns you could simply change your credentials straight after. However, we can absolutely guarantee that this system is completely secure and we would never do anything to jeopardise the privacy of our clients’ personal information. We take client data security very seriously and feel that this is the best way to keep your information safe and give you a proper, thorough and fair assessment.
After your application is approved and before we send you the electronic loan contract, we’ll ask you to select a day in which you would like your payments to be deducted from your account. You can choose weekly, fortnightly or monthly installments and the payment day is completely up to you. However, we do always recommend selecting a day that is in line with your pay cycle. This is just to ensure you’ll always have enough money in your account and that you don’t leave yourself short.
Once you’ve decided on a day, we’ll organise for the payment amounts to be directly debited from your account on that day. You’ll never have to worry about forgetting a payment or being sent annoying reminders. The funds will just be deducted from your account for the life of your loan. Once your unexpected bills loan is paid off, the payments will just stop automatically. And that’s that!
All you need to do is make sure you have enough money in your account to make each payment. If an automatic payment fails to come out, you’ll be charged a dishonour fee of $35. This is something you definitely want to avoid as it will just add to your debt. If you know you’re not going to be able to make a payment, get in touch with us as soon as possible. We’ll always be willing to come to an agreement that is suitable for all parties.
The costs associated with our small personal loans ($300 – $2,000) are:
- A 20% establishment fee
- A 4% monthly fee
- A $35 dishonour fee for missed payments
The costs associated with our medium secured personal loans ($2,001 – $4,600) are:
- A $400 establishment fee
- An annual percentage rate of 48% with a comparison rate of 66.04% per annum
- A $35 dishonour fee for miss payments
