One of the proudest moments in a young adult’s life is getting your very first car.

The more daunting tasks like vehicle financing and finding the best car finance deals are usually put off for the last moment. Here are some simple tips to help you get your head around car financing before making this all important purchase. Know Your Budget: First time salaries aren’t much, and amidst the responsibility of paying monthly basics, you probably have little wiggle room in your budget to splurge on expensive wheels. Being realistic about how much you can afford to pay towards vehicle financing is the first step to getting an ideal car without breaking the bank. Get Financing that Matches Your Budget: Paradoxically, low-cost car finance deals... read more
Most car owners are so concerned about having access to convenient car financing and other issues, that they completely forget to prepare for occurrences such as roadside emergencies. Here are some helpful tips on how you can stay prepared in the case of a road side emergency. What You Need To Have in Your Roadside Emergency Kit Medical Kit: New and used cars that are purchased from reputable car dealers and vehicle finance companies come with a standard medical kit.

Enter Earn-A-Car, a vehicle rent to own company that provides easy access to a pre-owned vehicle that won’t give you a headache.

One of the most frustrating aspects of being self-employed is being unable to get motor vehicle finance in South Africa. Or so the banks would tell you. For a long time, they were right. You could only get vehicle finance in South Africa if you were employed or you had your own business: with assets that could be attached. However, these days that’s not the reality for many self-employed people. Many ‘sole traders’ who work online don’t have assets beyond a laptop. That kind of self-employed sector is growing fast in South Africa’s economy. Particularly among the 20 – 30’s age group, many of whom cannot secure loans. They thus had no other option but to save the needed cash. However, vehicle finance for self-employed people is now easily available through rent-to-own finance deals such as those offered by Earn-a-Car. Easy vehicle finance for the self-employed – no assets... read more
Car finance with bad credit used to be a nightmare! It can still be close to impossible if you narrow your focus to traditional car financing. But, with bad credit common after the financial crisis of 2008 and becoming more widespread with rapidly increasing living costs and the current state of the SA economy, car finance with bad credit is a universal need. This demand is now answered with services such as Earn-a-Car’s rent-to-own car finance deals. Rent-to-buy car finance on pre-owned vehicles Buying a car while blacklisted or with bad credit no longer means that you have to pay cash for a low-priced pre-owned vehicle that could come with any number of problems, be unreliable and cost you even more at a time when you can least afford it. If you are no longer blacklisted but still suffer from a bad credit history, it no longer means that... read more

Whether you are looking for a vehicle for personal or business use, dispensing with the guesswork and endless searches and comparisons is the first step. You need straightforward advice.

Bad credit can happen to anyone. Getting back on track may seem very difficult, however, the car financing specialists at Earn-A-Car know what you’re going through and are here to help you rebuild your credit record. The best way to turn your financial situation around is to rebuild your credit record. Here are some tips to help you do just that: Manage existing debt: You can’t run from your debt. You must pay it back, but managing those repayments is time-consuming and difficult. One of the easiest ways to manage your existing debt is debt consolidation. Put simply, debt consolidation is the bundling of several unsecured debts into one large, monthly bill to a debt consolidation firm. This is particularly useful if you have several sources of debt, as having to organise payments to multiple creditors every month can result in missed, incorrect or simply forgotten payments.... 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.
