Having a car is an essential element of our day to day lives in South Africa. Public transport is erratic, unsafe and expensive. The only reliable option is to own your own car.

Vehicle financing in South Africa is quite strict when it comes to the issuing of car finance with bad credit. If you’ve only just started working or you’re buying a car while blacklisted, it will be difficult applying for car financing if you go the traditional route. Banks and traditional institutions will “penalise” you for having a poor credit rating, by either: Denying your application outright, or Issuing a loan with such a high-interest rate that you’ll be paying much higher premiums than you had hoped for. It also means that you’ll be tied into a contract with very strict financial terms and conditions. Fortunately, there is a way to get access to a vehicle through Earn-A-Car. Even better? It’s possible to improve your credit rating while you pay off your car! When applying for car financing, institutions obviously look at your income. But they also look at your... read more
There’s nothing quite like the thrill that comes with owning your first car. But the promise of independence is often all that first-time car buyers think of. Before you start looking for your new car, it’s best to do a bit of research into the car financing options available to you so you know exactly what to looking for when weighing up car finance and rent to own deals. Unless you’ve been saving for years, very few first-time car buyers can afford to buy a car for cash. Add to this the fact that you may be trying to get car finance with a bad credit history, and you’re likely to face difficulty in acquiring car financing in the first place due to high interest rates. So, before you go looking for car finance deals, work out your budget. Make sure you’ve considered the following possible expenses, including: Initial... read more

and Glen I really appreciate it.
To whom it may concern,
I would like to take this opportunity once again to thank you guys for the excellent service I receive!!!!
In November when I purchased/hire the car from you guys, I dealt with William and had such brilliant service and sent an email. I am not sure who it was to as I was working for another company at that stage.

Once again I have received the BEST SERVICE I have ever ever received!!! I don’t spend a tremendous amount with Earn a Car/Easy Cars, yet I get treated as if I spend millions of Rands with you guys, and I would like to sincerely thank you and commend on the fantastic service I have received.

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.
