What Is A Car Repair Loan?

A car repair loan is a short term loan to pay for car repairs, and can be the difference between resolving urgent car issues now or having to wait until your next payday. If you don’t have the savings or available cash to cover it, a loan for car repairs can help get you back on the road sooner. Ideal for any vehicle-related expenses that are unplanned, these quick loans can be applied for online and if approved, give you the cash you need the same day where possible.

We all know that car ownership can be expensive, and there are all sorts of situations where an emergency car repair loan can help. From complete engine failures and transmission problems to exterior damage to the bodywork from a collision, these loans provide the necessary funds to cover costs that might otherwise be unaffordable to pay in one go. In the same way that our payday loans can give you flexible repayments, a loan for car repairs can be particularly useful if repair expenses exceed your savings or the repair work cannot wait until your next salary date.

You can choose the amount you need based on how much the repairs are going to cost, between £300 and £600 for new customers and up to a maximum of £1,500 for returning customers. Then simply choose repayments between 3 – 6 months that match what you can afford to pay each month. At QuidMarket, we can make it easy to get the funds you need, even with a poor credit history.

How QuidMarket Can Help

We’re happy to help provide a car repair loan to those who need it, no matter your credit history. (Based on creditworthiness and affordability checks) With other online loan options requiring you to have a good credit score, we look at your finances as a whole, taking a human approach to lending that focuses on what you can afford to pay. This makes our loans more accessible and easier to apply for, all whilst ensuring the loan is affordable for you.

If we can see a car repair loan will help you and can be sustained, we’re ready to help.

We also offer applicants much-needed flexibility, so our loan amounts and repayments can fit your specific needs and budget rather than the other way around. This helps to make the loan manageable and sustainable for the whole term.

How Our Loan Repayments Work

Repaying your car repair loan at QuidMarket couldn’t be simpler with our straightforward and stress-free repayments. Once your loan is approved and you’ve received the cash, you only need to ensure that your bank account has sufficient funds available each month before your repayment date. This is because a CPA will take the agreed repayments, which will be automatically set up on your bank account.

We ensure that every loan for a car repair that is approved has manageable monthly instalments. A loan needs to be sustainable for you whether it’s for 3 months or 6 months, so we take the time to ensure the loan matches your budget. If it doesn’t, we won’t be able to help today, so you’ll need to check the loan you want is affordable for you before applying.

This repayment flexibility is available to all our customers, whether you are a new customer looking for same day loans or a returning customer. Simply tell us how long you want to borrow for, and we’ll see what we can do to help today.

Personal Car Repair Loan FAQs

Once your application is approved, we always look to transfer the funds to your bank account the same day within 2 hours where possible. The exact timing can depend on your bank’s processing times if they use the Faster Payments System (FPS), and whether you apply on a business day or weekend. Our opening hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm, so any applications made outside of these hours will be processed first thing on the next working day.

Yes, you can repay your car repair loan early if you want to without incurring any fees. Unlike other lenders, we do not charge an early settlement fee, so all you need to do is contact us to repay in full. We’ll give you an early settlement figure to check and then can process your payment the same day.

If you miss a repayment, it’s important to contact us as soon as possible. We can work with you to reschedule the payment at a suitable time or help you with a repayment arrangement. Please note that missing repayments can affect your credit score and make applying for credit in the future more difficult, so whilst we do not charge a late payment fee, it’s important to let us know if you are in any financial difficulties for us to discuss how we can help.

Yes, you can still apply for an emergency car repair loan even if you have bad credit. We assess all applications individually and consider factors beyond your current credit score, looking at your current financial situation and affordability. We aim to provide loans for various financial backgrounds, focusing on your ability to repay the loan rather than solely on your credit history. You should still think about whether applying for credit is the best option for you and whether there are any other options available to you first, such as emergency savings, that can help.
