Straight-forward finance for new vehicles – broker tips

April 12, 2019


When it comes to financing a new vehicle for your client our priority is keeping things simple, with a short turnaround to ensure your clients’ new wheels are on the road pronto.

Follow our motor matrix checklist for quick and easy approval when financing a commercial car or ute with us:

Age of vehicle

Our book is crammed with all aged vehicles, from ex sport Datsuns to the latest Kia Sportage or Toyota Prius. While we’re fans of all vehicles, cars up to 5 years old fall into our dedicated motor matrix making the process even quicker.

Amount financed

Whether you’re working with a new or existing customer, they can borrow up to $150,000 for a new commercial vehicle.

Maximum exposure

If your client has been with us for up to a year, they’ll start out with a maximum exposure of $150,000. If they’ve been an existing customer for more than 3 years, this increases to $250,000.

Business continuity

We can provide more flexibility than many traditional bank lenders. Your client needs to prove a minimum of three years’ trading history to fall into our motor matrix, but don’t worry if they can’t, we’ll always consider an application on its own merits.

Credit history

Bonus points for borrowers / guarantors with squeaky clean credit history.


Don’t forget to include all company directors / shareholders’ signatures – we’ll need those.

Property ownership

While we’ll never use personal home as security, if you can prove your client is a homeowner it’s another tick towards their new car. However, we appreciate that not all business owners will have invested in property which is why we’ll also accept a 20% deposit instead.

Done deal with a dealership

Any car financed through a licensed dealer or recognised supplier is good with us.
