Our loans for car purchases and repairs are personal loans. That means there is no initial deposit like you get with hiring or leasing a car. If you are buying a car using a personal loan, you will also own it outright as soon as you have taken ownership of the vehicle. Using a personal loan for your car repair or purchase allows you to repay with agreed monthly payments until the loan is paid back. There is no balloon payment required at the end of the contract, like you commonly see with a personal contract purchase (PCP) deal.
If you are considering purchasing a car using one of our loans, it is a good idea to consider a few things around possible additional costs associated with purchasing your new vehicle. To begin with, if you are considering buying a car, remember to factor in the costs beyond just the price tag. You will likely need an MOT, tax and insurance. You will also need to pay for normal expenses like petrol. If the car you want is expensive to tax and insure or it costs a lot to fuel, this could make it unaffordable in the long run.
Once you understand the full cost of the vehicle, you may want to consider having it checked by an independent mechanic.
Finally, if you are considering using a loan to buy a car, you should make sure you get the loan before you agree on any price to ensure you have the money available for the purchase.
Apply with confidence
Our loan applications use soft search, which means they do not leave a negative mark on your credit history. This is particularly important if you do not have perfect credit in the first place, as multiple hard credit checks can be seen as a negative sign by future lenders. Everyday Loans will only conduct a hard credit check if your application has been accepted in full, prior to you receiving your funds.
To see if you qualify for one of our loans, fill out our application. If approved at this stage, you will be invited into your local branch for the next step. They will review your application and get to know you better before deciding whether to offer you a loan.
If you have any questions about the application or the loan in the meantime, you can call your local Everyday Loans branch, who will be happy to help you through the process.

What Is a Car Loan?
While there are loans specifically designed for buying a vehicle, in general terms, a car loan is any loan you use to purchase a car. Everyday Loans car loans are unsecured loans. That means you are not putting up your home, the car you are buying or any other valuables as a secured asset.
If you use our loans, once you purchase the car, it is yours. This is much different from some other types of car financing, where you may not own the car until you have finished paying off the loan.
How Do Car Loans Work?
The car loans offered by Everyday Loans are unsecured long term loans with no hidden fees or charges. That means you apply for a loan, and if you are accepted, we can provide you with your money. Once you have the cash, you can go out and purchase your car. You will need to make the appropriate payments for the term of the loan, but the car is yours as soon as you have purchased it. All of the details will be covered in your contract.
Why Get A Car Loan?
A car loan can be a great way for someone to purchase a vehicle. It provides a lump sum immediately, which means you have the cash on hand to purchase the car you want. Without a loan, you may have to wait until you have the money saved up before you can buy a vehicle. Worse yet, you may have to settle for a car you do not want because you cannot afford anything else at the time.
A car loan helps spread the cost of your new vehicle. Financing allows you to pay the loan back in monthly instalments, which means you can budget for this outgoing rather than having to pay the entire cost of the car all at once.
What Types Of Car Financing Are Available?
The 4 most common types of car financing are:
This allows you to buy and own the car outright as soon as you have paid the seller. This is the type of financing offered by Everyday Loans.
You pay a deposit for the car. Then you make monthly payments on the car. With hire purchase, you do not own the vehicle until you make your final payment.
Personal Contract Purchase
With this type of financing, you put down a deposit for the car then you borrow some money to help pay for the vehicle. The money you borrow is then paid back over time. At the end of the contract, you make one final large payment which gives you ownership of the car, or you return the vehicle.
This is essentially a long-term rental. You make an initial payment and subsequent monthly payments over the term of the contract. When the contract is over, you simply return the car.
