Where to get car loans?

Start with a car loan broker. Read below to understand why.

This is a great question and one we get all the time. The Australian lending market is really competitive so consumers have a lot of options.

The only problem with so much choice is you can often not know where to start!

It’s actually really important that you don’t run off and apply for lots of car loans at various lenders because this could actually hurt your credit rating as each application directly impacts your credit score.

So, what do you do to avoid hurting your credit score while still working out where to get a car loan?

To answer the question “where to get car loans” go to a car loan broker like nmoni.

We have a panel of over 20 lenders. We listen to your personal circumstances and only place you with a lender that can provide a great rate for your situation. We do all of this while protecting your credit rating as we don’t do hard credit checks. Hard credit checks are a formal credit inquiry and therefore impact your credit score. We do what’s called a soft credit check. Soft credit checks are not a credit application. This means they do not come up as a credit inquiry and therefore don’t hurt your credit rating.

Let us shop the market for you so you can avoid paying too much for a car loan while protecting your credit rating.

You can start the process in 10 minutes by completing our online application.

Finally, make sure the broker you choose has lots of positive customer reviews. With a 4.9 Google rating out of 5 we like to think our clients love us!

Frequently Asked Questions

At nmoni we review your situation and only apply for loans with lenders we believe will approve your application and provide the right rate. This will reduce the impact on your credit score while also saving you a lot of time and hassle.

This is really important as you don’t want to get a loan with a lender that charges high fees and has high exit costs. We only deal with reputable lenders so we can ensure you avoid any of these potential potholes. Also, make sure the lender or broker you use has high Google ratings (we happen to have a 4.9 out of 5 Google rating!).

Your credit score is calculated by credit reporting agencies based on your personal and financial information. Here are some factors that can impact your credit score:

  • the number of credit applications you’ve made
  • the amount of money you have borrowed
  • have you paid your loans or bills on time?

Credit reporting agencies calculate a score between 0 and 1,000 or 1,200. The higher the score the better your chances of not only getting your loan approved, but getting a lower rate.

The higher your credit score the better your chance of getting a loan and the better chance you have of getting a lower interest rate. This is because if you have a really good credit score you are a lower risk to a lender and therefore are a good chance of paying back the loan. Conversely, if you have a lower credit score a lender may classify you as having higher risk and therefore charge a higher interest rate.

In addition to your credit score, other factors like overall banking conduct (such as dishonours and payday loans) can also impact the interest rate you are offered. 

The key is to check with multiple lenders to see what they have to offer. Not all lenders offer bad credit car loans and rates can vary widely. We have a panel of over 20 lenders and have a great deal of knowledge on which lenders are suitable for your situation at an affordable interest rate. We can do all the hard work for you without hurting your credit rating as we do not do upfront credit checks. Our online application is fast and hassle free and we can give you immediate feedback on your options.

At nmoni we do not perform upfront credit checks. This means that we can review your application and give you a guide as to whether a lender will give you a loan before a credit check is completed. Our process reduces the number of credit checks required and therefore helps you avoid hurting your credit score. Start the process today by completing our fast application.

Yes, it is possible to get a car loan with bad credit because these loans are secured against the car which reduces the risk for the lender. The car loan however may be more expensive. The key is to check with multiple lenders to see what they have to offer and what you can afford. We can do all of this for you without hurting your credit rating as we do not do upfront credit checks. Our online application is fast and hassle free and we can give you immediate feedback on your options.

Bad credit car loans are for people with a bad credit history. Not all lenders do car loans for people with bad credit. This is why it’s best to check with us to see what your options might be. We can give you guidance as to your chances of securing a car loan. All while protecting your credit rating as we don’t do upfront credit checks (we do what’s called a ‘soft pull’ of your credit file to ensure you are protected).

The good news is that there are lenders who work with clients looking for a car loan with bad credit. Importantly, these lenders often change their lending criteria so it’s important to work with a broker who can help place you with a lender who is more likely to fund your dream car purchase. Please complete our online car loan application and we will check our panel of over 20 lenders to see who can help with your situation.

We take a broader view of your application than just your credit score. We do this by reviewing your overall credit profile to get a clearer picture of your financial position. We do this without performing an upfront credit check (we do a soft check that does not impact your credit score). Importantly, we also provide credit feedback if we cannot assist you with a loan right now. 

Secured loans are amongst the easiest loans to get. That's where you put up something of value in exchange for funding. Car, boat and caravan loans are types of secured loans and means the lender has some security over the loan.

We can review your situation and provide feedback on why you are being declined without hurting your credit score. Apply now and we'll provide you valuable feedback.

There are lenders we work with that specialise in clients with lower credit scores. The best way to find out is to complete our online application and we’ll put our technology and/or one of our credit analysts to work to review your file and provide feedback. We can provide valuable information on your options without affecting your credit rating.
