Around every five to seven years many car owners start contemplating when to make their next car purchase. For some this means stepping up or down while for others it means expanding into new automotive categories. Whether you are shifting makes or models, all car buyers will eventually need to consider one thing. And that is the means which the purchase will be financed.

Indeed, there are many ways to procure the funds for a purchase. Savings and cash are key, along with proceeds from a recent vehicle sale, or the value of a trade in. In many instances buyers bridge the gap between the deposit and total purchase price with a loan. Be it accessing a mortgage redraw facility, a personal loan, or a car loan there are plenty of options.

But with almost as many financing options as there are available cars, finding the right one can be challenging. Features like low fees and flexibility may tick some boxes, yet there is no simple single answer for finding the best car finance. Ultimately, it is all about finding what is best for you.

This means taking the time to reflect on your financial circumstances and automotive needs. And, overlaying these with various loan types, features, and options. Do remember that content provided in this article is merely a starting point. Always consider your individual financial circumstances and seek independent professional advice relevant to your situation. To help get you going, here are out picks of the best car finance providers in the Wagga area.

What makes a great car finance provider?

Finding the right provider to finance your next car purchase can potentially save time and of course money. While it all depends on what you want as a borrower, here are a few aspects to consider:

  • Lender credentials. As always, consider a provider’s reputation within the lending space. Firstly, ensure mandatories certifications and licensing are all up to date, then move on to credentials. Much like in the home loan space, some providers have a more favourable reputation than others. They may be widely recognised within the industry or be known for their market leading loan products. Some may even be award-winning loan providers.
  • Competitive rates. For many applicants, driving loan costs down are key. Regardless of whether you are seeking a fixed or variable outcome, competitive rates Fortunately, there are many car loan comparison tools available online which can help to streamline options. Moreover, engaging to services of a broker may also help.
  • Suited to use. The intended use of your new vehicle purchase can also influence the nature of a loan. While car or personal loans and mortgage redraw facilities cater to many private vehicle purchases, they don’t suit everyone. Buyers shopping for vehicles intended for business or commercial use may find added benefits in leasing. Similarly, buyers considering an eco or electric vehicle may find appeal in green car loans. Ultimately the right option will depend on your individual needs and financial circumstances.
  • Favourable features. When it comes to securing finance for your new purchase, keep an eye out for the loan features that synchronise with your ambitions. New vehicle aside, these ambitions could include securing the lowest costs or the ability to pay off your loan as quickly as possible. Here features like low interest rates, no or low loan fees, and flexible repayment terms may all help. Additionally, researching the best loan type and the right loan term can help to strike a balance between instalment affordability and overall duration.
  • Service. While a fraction of a percentage point may separate some lenders from the rest what also counts is service. Being easily accessible, readily available across a range of mediums, and overall responsiveness are all key. To assess a provider’s service levels, review past customer feedback along with any service awards.
