What is a secured car loan?
A secured car loan is a lending agreement where the asset acting as security for the car loan is the vehicle being purchased. Because secured car loans are safer for both the lender and the borrower, they offer better interest rates and lower fees. Unsecured vehicle loans are quite uncommon.

Car Finance with Rapid Loans
A car loan is better called a ‘vehicle loan’ as it covers trucks, motorcycles, boats and caravans too. In getting a vehicle loan, a borrower can either apply for conditional pre-approval for a certain amount before they go shopping, or they can find a vehicle, negotiate a price and then approach a lender to access the necessary funds.

Using Rapid Loans to Finance Your Next Vehicle
In the modern world, almost everyone needs a car to participate in society. Cars are necessary to go to the store, visit friends, and even to get a job. Buying a vehicle is expensive, so financing options are a popular choice available to make paying for your next vehicle more manageable.
Benefits of Car Finance Using Rapid Loans
We simplify the process of obtaining a car loan so that you can quickly get on the road with a vehicle that you can afford with weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments. Whether you are looking for a new car or a used vehicle, we can provide the finance that you need.
Rapid Loans has a strong advantage over conventional lenders because it allows you to apply for car loans quickly using an easy and convenient online finance application. If approved, you can generally see a result quickly and often have funds available on the same day. In other words, you do not have to wait for weeks to have your car loan application assessed.
Many people who are in the market for a car do not currently have the luxury of owning a vehicle. As a result, getting to a lender’s office can be challenging. When you borrow online, you can avoid the hassle of having to make a personal appearance in an office that is a significant distance from your house.
Easy Finance Application Process
Another major advantage of Rapid Loans is that the lender lets you easily complete your car loan application online. Filling out an application online has several benefits, including:
- The car loan application can be completed from anywhere
- Fast application process
- Transparent loan repayments
As a result, most borrowers can complete their applications in less than five minutes. Once your car loan application is submitted, you will usually get feedback about whether your car loan was approved within 24 hours.
Fast Response and Clear Communication
Rapid Loans is known for the speed of which applications are processed. All our car loan applications will have to be manually reviewed, but we endeavour to have our finance applications processed promptly and most applicants get an answer on the same day.
Of course, most car buyers have a specific need that they need to solve as quickly as possible. Some buyers are waiting on a vehicle to get to work while other buyers need a car to drive their kids to school or just get to the shops. Having the ability to get finance in a timely manner lets you quickly get past the buying process so that you can move on with your life.

Used Car Finance
Rapid Loans offers a convenient finance method for used vehicles. You can apply for a car loan for a used car in the same way that you apply to obtain car finance for a new vehicle.
The used car loans that we offer are secured by using the vehicle that you purchase as security.
2 Weeks Finance Pre-Approval
Rapid Loans can conditionally approve you as a borrower up to two weeks before you buy a car. In this way, you will have plenty of time to choose the vehicle that you really want. By having more time to pick the right vehicle, you will have more time to consider different offers that match your needs and offer quick settlement options to the car seller when you find the right vehicle.
How do I buy a car that is under finance?
When you are buying a second-hand car privately, it is essential to check whether a finance institution holds any security against it. We can find out this information by running a PPSR check on the vehicle you want to purchase. As the car you are purchasing acts as security for your loan, the seller will need to repay their original finance company before the sale can go ahead. There are two ways to do this.
The first is that the seller can obtain a payout quote from their financier, repay the outstanding amount and provide proof that the final payment has been made. The second way is that if they are relying on the sale of the car to repay the financier, then they can provide the official payout document to Rapid Loans and we will disburse funds straight to their financier as part of the new car loan. If there are additional funds from the sale leftover after the original loan is paid out, those will then be disbursed to the seller.
What is a p.a. comparison rate?
The comparison rate gives you a true understanding of the cost of the loan per year. In addition to interest rate charged, it adds the cost of fees and charges, repayment frequency, loan term and loan amount.
What loan terms do you offer?
Our loan terms vary from 18 to 60 months with loans ranging from $2,001 up to $25,000. This will depend on the product, loan amount and other factors.
What is a balloon payment?
A balloon payment is a significant extra payment made on your loan that is greater than your normal repayment. A balloon payment can be made at any time of the loan term and will reduce the loan term and interest charges for that loan. We do not require balloon payments at Rapid Loans, however the option is available to you to make extra repayments without incurring any fees.
What does pre-approval mean?
Applicants are able to apply for pre-approval for finance before making an offer for a car. Pre-approval means that the applicant has already gone through the application process and has been found that they satisfy the criteria to get a loan of a specific loan amount. This gives the applicant to the reassurance that they can afford a car within a specific budget. When the applicant has found a car to purchase, the loan application can be finalised with any conditions being met to receive final approval, contracts signed and funds disbursed.
Do you offer fixed interest rates?
Yes, personal and car loans from Rapid Loans have a fixed interest rate outlined in your contract. This will vary depending on a number of factors such as borrower profile, loan product and principal amount.
Do you charge early repayment fees?
No, Rapid Loans does not charge any fees for early payouts or additional repayments on top of the normal repayment schedule.
