Personal Car Loans in a Nutshell
A car loan is, in a nutshell, an advance of funds to help you pay for the purchase of a car. When you purchase and pay for the car and pick up the key, you take ownership of the car. It is only once the contract is paid off that the finance provider passes title over to you. It is important to make sure you find the right finance provider that ticks all your boxes. Whether it is low rate, no fees or no early termination fee, 360 Finance have a financier for you.

Personal Car Loan terms explained
Unsecured – you might think of this as a “personal loan”, where the loan provider gives you the loan without tying it to any security such as the car, your house, shares etc. It means the car’s ownership is in your name completely. Incidentally, these loans can be used for other purposes, so if you want to buy a flash new bike, music equipment etc, an Unsecured Personal Loan could be the answer. If you have a preference for an unsecured loan, ask the team at 360 Finance but beware a higher rate can sometimes be associated with an unsecured loan.
Secured – a secured loan means the loan provider takes your car or asset that you are purchasing as security. The financier will keep an ownership stake in the car until you pay it off. This is called an encumbrance and will be lodged with the national personal properties and securities register or also known as the PPSR. If you can’t pay the loan the asset is at risk of being liquidated by the loan provider, but the upside is a lower interest rate compared to an unsecured loan because of the lower risk to the bank of being out of pocket should you stop paying.
Term / Length of the loan – the term of the personal loan is the time you have to pay it off. We sometimes call it the life of the loan. Common car loan terms are anywhere between 3 years to 7 years. It is also possible that any loan term under 5 years can also have a residual payment to help keep payments low ( see balloon or residual payment ). 360 Finance works with a range of lenders who can offer you a loan term and structure that suits you.
360 will always be my first point of call when seeking asset loans.
Balloon or residual payment – when the end of your loan term comes, any amount left is called the balloon or residual payment. The benefit of the balloon payment is that it enables a level of flexibility when it comes to how much you pay each month/week/fortnight on your loan. Repayments can be made smaller by having a bigger balloon payment. If a small balloon payment is important to you, simply opt for a larger regular payment throughout the term. Talk to the team at 360 Finance about structuring the balloon payment that is right for you, prior to the commencement of your loan. The best part of paying your balloon payment is that the actual ownership of the car passes to you.
