Frequently Asked Questions

Car loan basics

A car loan can be used to purchase any new or used motorised vehicle. We offer heaps of auto financing options without any rules against the age of the vehicle you want to buy.

A secured car loan from Handy Finance means that the vehicle you buy is used as a guarantee for the loan. This usually means you get lower interest rates, making our loans more appealing and affordable. Plus, having an asset as security often means you’ll have a smoother loan approval process.

With a secured car loan from Handy Finance, the vehicle you buy acts as security for the loan. This can mean a lower interest rate for your loan and a more straightforward approval process.

Financial terms and rates

Traditional bank lenders tend to have higher operating costs, resulting in higher rates. Handy Finance keeps rates low by keeping operating costs down and remaining focused on our mission – allowing people to live life to the fullest.

Fixed-rate loans are completely transparent from day one – because the rate doesn’t change, you know exactly how much you will be repaying and how often for the entirety of your loan.

Handy Finance ensures borrowers with a good credit history are rewarded with better rates. We will offer you an interest rate based on your personal credit history and evaluation against our credit scorecard. You can receive an indicative rate estimate in just a few minutes via our online application form. Any estimates provided do not constitute an offer or approval of finance. Your repayment amount and interest rate will be confirmed if an application is submitted and approved.

We offer fixed interest rates on our Handy Finance Car Loans to make sure there are no surprises when paying your repayments.

To understand how interest works on a Handy Finance Car Loan, think of it as part of what you pay back in addition to the borrowed amount (the principal). The interest is calculated on the remaining loan balance, either daily or monthly, and gets added to your regular repayments. 

For a quick and easy way to see what your repayments and the total cost of the loan might be, use our Loan Calculator at Handy Finance. Just input your loan details, and away you go. Remember, the interest rate and repayment amount shown are just estimates based on the details you put in. The actual rate and repayment amounts you receive may change slightly from this calculation, depending on your situation.

The luxury car tax is an extra tax you pay when buying a car worth more than a certain amount. It’s something to keep in mind if you’re thinking about buying a high-end, expensive car. This tax is added to the price of luxury cars to balance the cost of these high-value vehicles in the market.
