Compare car loan options from Stratton
While Stratton doesn’t offer loan products themselves, they work with a range of car lenders to give you access to the following types of loans:
- Personal loan. This type of loan doesn’t require you to use your car as a guarantee, protecting the car in case you default on the loan. As these loans are riskier for lenders they generally come with higher rates. However, you’ll also find that you are less restricted in the way you can use your loan amount.
- Car loan. Car loans are secured, meaning your car will be used as a guarantee and will be repossessed if you default on the loan. These loans generally come with lower rates and fees than unsecured loans.
- Finance lease (car lease). This is a commercial loan product whereby a financier purchases a vehicle and leases it out to a customer. The customer pays a fixed monthly lease rental and then pays a residual payment at the end of the lease to take ownership of the vehicle.
- Commercial Hire Purchase (CHP). This is similar to a finance lease except its where a business hires a car from a financier. After paying to lease the vehicle during the leased term the business has the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of the term.
- Chattel mortgage. A chattel mortgage is another avenue a business can take to secure a vehicle. This avenue involves a business borrowing money from a financier to buy a vehicle, and the financier having a mortgage over the vehicle until the loan is repaid.
- Novated lease (salary packaging). This type of loan allows an employee to buy a vehicle which is paid for out of their pre-tax income by their employer. There are several tax benefits to this loan type, and its also an incentive that employers can offer to their employees.
- Fully-maintained novated lease. This is another method of salary packaging where an employee leases a car and their employer uses the employee’s pre-tax income to cover the repayments and operating expenses.
