Tips for Applying for a Used Car Loan

Buying a used car is exciting, but financing can be confusing. At Enterprise Cars we understand that securing a used car loan is a crucial step in making your dream car a reality. To help you along the way, here's a handy guide for getting the best possible car loan finance for your budget. 

Set a budget for your car finance 

Before you start looking at cars, it's important to decide on how much you can afford. Consider not only the purchase price but also additional costs such as car insurance and maintenance. Setting a realistic budget helps you narrow down your options and ensures that you won't be stretching your finances too thin.  

Use online calculators to check your used car loan repayments  

You can use our online finance calculators to easily determine your weekly or monthly payment amount. Simply input your loan details and the calculator will provide you with the information you need. 

Our finance calculators will also assist you in working out your financial commitment. They also allow you to test various scenarios to find a repayment plan that fits your budget. 

Understand your loan terms 

When reviewing loan offers, pay close attention to the terms. The loan term, or the length of the loan, can significantly impact your payments. Longer loan terms may result in lower monthly payments, however they often come with higher interest costs. Choose a term that aligns with your financial goals and ensures you can comfortably manage your car loan payments.  

Negotiate the terms of your loan agreement 

Don't be afraid to negotiate the terms of your loan. While interest rates are often non-negotiable, other aspects, such as the loan term and fees, may be flexible. Discuss your options with the finance team, and they will work with you to get the best possible loan conditions that work for you. 

Save for your deposit 

We offer no deposit finance, but a deposit can help your loan term by reducing the amount you need to borrow. This boosts your loan approval odds and shows lenders you're financially responsible.  

Get your documents ready 

When you're ready to apply, make sure you bring along the necessary documents to speed up the process. Ensure you have proof of income, like a recent pay slip, and identification, like a passport or driver's license. 


Start by understanding your finances and your budget. Use our loan calculators to test out a few repayment scenarios. Armed with this knowledge, you can sail through the financing stage and snag the sweetest deal that fits your budget.
