Here at Earn a Car, not only are we experts when it comes to motor vehicle finance in South Africa, we also know a thing or two about caring for your car. Here is everything you need to know about car services and maintenance: Regular is better Never wait until your car is giving you problems to take it for a service or maintenance. This could lead to a costly invoice! By taking your vehicle for regular services, possible future problems can be picked up quickly and dealt with before they become expensive. Find the right mechanic If you have not been happy with the service that you have received in the past, look elsewhere. The best way in which to find a reliable mechanic is to ask people about their experiences. If a friend or a family member can recommend someone who they feel they can rely... read more
Aside from attempting to obtain easy vehicle finance with a bad credit record, one of the most daunting experiences is having to deal with an unreliable car that keeps breaking down at the worst possible moments. Here are some of the reasons why your car may be breaking down: Faulty battery If there is a problem with your car’s electrical connection or you don’t make long journeys very often, your battery is likely to cause you problems. Flat tyre We all know that South African roads can be dangerous and full of potholes, which is why flat tyres are another common breakdown cause. Overheated engine If your cooler fan has seen better days, it can lead to your engine overheating a lot faster than usual. Clutch issues Once a clutch has been over-worn, it can start to cause problems. Unfortunately, however, your clutch can... read more

Owning a car is pretty close to a must in South Africa. Our public transport is unreliable at best; downright death-defying at worst.

At Earn-a-Car we understand your fears, and offer car finance deals for everyone who meets or minimum requirements. No Fuss Approach We believe that owning a car needn’t be impossible for people new to the vehicle market or those who have made a mistake in the past. In as little as 54 months you can own one of our available vehicles. If you have proof of your income, a minimum down payment of R16,500 – determined by the vehicle you choose – and meet some simple requirements, you may be eligible for... read more

Getting a flat tyre when you’re out on the road can make you feel truly helpless. You may have a fantastic set of wheels, plenty of petrol in your tank and the best motor vehicle finance in South Africa… but if you don’t know how to change a tyre it’s a real problem. Here’s how to do it: 1. Make sure the car is secure and won’t roll Never change a tyre on a hill or an incline. The car should be on a flat surface with the handbrake up. Put blocks of wood behind the wheels as an extra precaution. 2. Pry off the wheel cover with a screwdriver You should keep a small toolkit inside your boot for just this kind of emergency. Use an action like you’re taking the lid off a can of paint. 3. Loosen the lug nuts Use a wrench from your toolkit... read more

Eerstens wil ek se: DUISENDE DANKIES vir 4 jaar se PUIK diens wat ons van julle ontvang het. Ons kon altyd op julle reken, dag en nag. Julle was altyd net n foonoproep ver. As ek ooit weer n voetuig moet huur sal dit defenitief WEER by julle wees en ek sal julle sterk aanbeveel by enige iemand wat daaraan dink om n voertuig te huur.
Geen probleem is ooit te groot vir julle nie, geen moeite te veel nie en geen tyd ooit te laat nie. Julle was ALTYD vriendelik en geduldig.
My hart was seer om die Golf terug te stuur na julle toe maar so kom alles aan n einde….
Nogmaals BAIE DANKIE en strekte vir julle.

Easycarsrental ( Earn a Car) has made it possible for me to have a car. I never thought of this before, because i was always turned down. I remember that word, "Unestablished Credit record"
In March 2009, I got a job after a long time of unemployment. One of the requirements was that I must get a Car, I started applying for cars in different car sales and was turned down all the time because I was blacklisted. I was on the edge of losing my Job until I saw the website www.easycarsrental.co.za, I submitted my information online and was contacted within few hours. That was impressive but I didn’t know the outcome, I was scared that they might not give me a car because of my record. My Car was approved within few hours on the 10th of June 2009 and I got the car same day. I was relieved that the installment included Insurance, tracker and cash back. Easy Cars ( Earn a Car) is reliable and affordable, their dealing is honest and transparent.
Thanks to staff and management for their support and service 24 hours.
