How do Cash a Way loans work?

Cash a Way provides secured loans, so you’ll need to provide some kind of collateral to secure the loan. The item you choose to pawn can be just about anything of value. Cash a Way provides loans from $50 to $50,000.

To get a loan from Cash a Away you have to visit its store and take item you wish to use as collateral with you. An employee values your item and makes you a cash loan offer on the spot. If you accept the offer, you have to sign the contract. Cash a Away can then give you the money you need.

The contract gives you a clear indication of the redemption period. You have to repay the loan amount along with interest and charges during this period to get your item back. Keep in mind than if you don’t repay the loan in time, Cash a Way sells your pawned goods to recover its money.

Features of a loan from Cash a Way

This is why you can think about getting a loan from Cash a Away:

  • Use different items as collateral. As long as you have something of value, you can think about getting the money you need from Cash a Way. Examples of what you can use as collateral include jewellery, electronic goods, household appliances, musical instruments, gardening equipment and even vehicles.
  • Get money quickly. If you’re okay with the loan offer, you can get the money you need almost immediately.
  • Creditworthiness does not matter. Getting a conventional loan can be a challenge if you have poor credit history. This is not a concern with Cash a Way loans because you’re providing collateral to secure it. If you don’t repay your loan, Cash a Way sells your item to recoup it costs. The defaulted loan doesn’t get listed on your credit file.
  • Use the money for any purpose. There are no restrictions on what you can do with proceeds from your Cash a Way loan, provided you use the money for legitimate reasons.

Fees and charges

Before you get money through Cash a Way you have to accept a pawn contract. This contract informs you of the total loan amount. It also tells you how interest much you’ll have to pay as well as other applicable fees and charges.

According to pawn broking law in Australia, you get at least three months to repay the loan and get your items back. If you can’t repay the loan within the specified time frame, you can seek an extension by contacting Cash a Way. However, remember that the longer you take to repay the loan, the more it will cost.
