    Hi, if I’m in the market for a new car but unsure of the exact price yet (still bargaining with dealer). Can I get an approval for $30K and if it ends up being $28K, is that fine?

    • Staff
      JonathanJune 22, 2017Staff

      Hi Joel!

      Yes, it should not be a problem at all! In fact, it is better that you get approved for a higher amount then go down, rather than the other way around. :)

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    Hi All,
    Just wanted to know if there was a rate lock associated with a loan $50,000 for a new car loan?

      Hi Jarrod,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The comparison rate is based on a secured loan amount of $30,000 and a term of 5 years. This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

    Hi, I want to buy a new motorbike and the IMB loan looks quite competitive. With this loan, can I also finance the purchase of my safety equipment? Thanks, Tom.

      Hi Tom,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that we are finder.com.au, a financial comparison and information website, not IMB.

      I’ve checked the terms and conditions of this loan and I can’t find any reference as to whether you can use this loan to finance the safety equipment or not.

      You can directly get in touch with IMB on 1300 78 08 97 to inquire.

      Cheers,

    Hi,

    I have arrived recently to Australia and I’m on temporary residence visa. I’m employed on contract basis. Will I qualify for a car loan?

    Thanks.

      Hi Sam,

      Unfortunately IMB does not consider temporary residents for loans. You can consider your other options on this page.

      Hope this helps,

    Regarding loan security is the new car being purchased classed as security

    • Staff
      ElizabethMarch 1, 2016Staff

      Hi Michael,

      The new car you purchase will be used as security for the loan. It is for new motor vehicle purchases, as well as demonstrator vehicles if the odometer reading is less than 5,000km.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth

    • Staff
      ElizabethFebruary 22, 2016Staff

      Hi Deborah,

      IMB new car loan can only be secured against a new or demonstration vehicle with an odometer reading less than 5,000km. You may want to consider the IMB secured personal loan on this page instead.

      Thanks,

      Is there a different loan which allows me to buy a used motorcycle less than 5 years old but with more than 5000 km?
      Thanks for your time

      ElizabethFebruary 9, 2016Staff

      Hi Gal,

      I can’t recommend a specific lender, but you can find a full list of your used motorbike loan options, as well as the eligibility requirements for the bikes detailed here. When you’re ready to apply for one of the loans just scroll up to the table on that same page and click “Go to Site”.

      I hope this will help.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Gal,

      Motorcycle loans are similar to car loans in that you are able to choose a secured or unsecured option, depending on whether you want to use your motorcycle as a guarantee. The IMB New Car Loan allows you to use the loan to finance a motorcycle, however the loan can only be secured against a new vehicle or demonstration vehicle with an odometer reading less than 5,000km.

      Hope this has helped,

      Elizabeth

    I bought a new car less than 2 years ago and it is under Nissan Finance but I want to change to a financier with a more competitive rate. Will I qualify as a customer for the IMB New Car loan?

    • Staff
      ElizabethJanuary 18, 2016Staff

      Hi Nadia,

      All applications are handled on a case-by-case basis by IMB. However, the minimum eligibility criteria is that you are under the age of 18, an Australian citizen or permanent resident and are not currently bankrupt. You also need to show that you can currently afford the loan and the car will need to meet certain criteria as well.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
