If the total amount you have managed to save up for a deposit is a big round zero it does not mean your dreams of getting a new car are over. A Personal Contract Purchase or a PCP deal for short is a new way of financing. It allows for more flexibility in the way which we buy and finance cars. What is a PCP deal? Without paying a deposit upfront you can pay the leftover value of the car at the end of the contract. If you decide you would rather not keep the car, you can even skip this payment. The condition is you hand the keys back, swap cars and start paying the monthly instalments for a new car. If you choose not to do this, you can give the car back to the dealer and walk away without having paid a “deposit” for a car... read more

Depending on the extent of your bad credit- you might even get a car loan at prime. Follow these steps to get the best car loan you can possibly get: Don’t assume the worst A bad credit score is not the only thing lenders will look at. They will also look at the credit history so, while two buyers may have the exact same credit score, they both may get different interest rates. Look for car finance lenders A home loan and a car loan are very different things. Car loans are smaller and are paid back over a shorter period. Home loan lenders may penalize you more for bad credit than car lenders. You can still get a prime or near-prime car loan. You... 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.
