Buying a new car is a significant investment, and preparation is essential. This article will provide you with a few things to consider before deciding on which vehicle suits you. 

1. Your lifestyle 

We would all love that top of the range sports car that we see gleaming through the showroom window, but let’s be honest, is it a practical choice according to your everyday lifestyle? It is essential to take some time and think about how you will be using your vehicle. How often will you drive your car, how safe and spacious it is for your family, and will you be using your car for work purposes?

2. Your Budget 

When considering your monthly budget for a vehicle, you need to look at the bigger picture. Not only will you be paying your monthly installments on your car, but you will be paying for fuel, insurance, maintenance, licensing, road-side assistance etc. All of these eventually add up, and before you know it, your monthly vehicle expenses have doubled. It would help if you took the time to sit and write down what you can afford according to the factors mentioned above.

3. Finding the best deal 

Buying a new car is exciting and we know the feeling of not being able to wait to get onto  the road with your windows down, but haste does mean waste. Take a few weeks to scope out some good deals and make a day out to find the best option for you that fits your lifestyle and your budget.

4. Get yourself covered

Accidents can happen at any time, and whether major or minor, they can be costly. Do your research on the vehicle that you are considering and get some quotes from local insurers. Ask your friends and family who they use and how their experience has been with that specific company.

We are here to assist you with all your vehicle purchasing and car financing needs, contact us today.

Modern vehicles can be complicated, but when you have a rent-to-buy vehicle from Earn-a-Car, vehicle breakdown and roadside assistance are included in your agreement. When purchasing a car, it is always good to at least scan through the owner’s manual to familiarise yourself with the content and find out where the car can go for its regular service in future. But what do you do when your car’s engine light comes on?  

What does the Automobile Association say?

According to the Automobile Association (AA), if the car’s engine light is always on and there is no loss of power, you can continue driving but should have it checked out as soon as possible. However, if the engine light is flashing whilst you are driving, stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. Restart the engine after two minutes to reset the engine management system and if the light continues flashing, turn off the engine and call for a breakdown service.    

What might cause the car’s engine light to come on?

There are a few common problems that might cause the rent-to-own car’s engine light to come on.

  • Loose fuel cap
  • Oxygen sensor failure
  • Catalytic converter failure
  • Spark plug/ignition coil issues
  • Bad spark plug wires
  • Mass airflow sensor failure
  • Issues with an aftermarket alarm
  • Vacuum leak
  • Exhaust gas recirculation valve failure
  • Dead battery.

Don’t wait until the rent-to-buy car’s engine light comes on before you take your car for a service. Following the service record set by the manufacturer not only keeps you and your loved ones safe but also maintains the value of the car. 

Vehicle finance companies will not provide financing if you are blacklisted, but with Earn-a-Car this is not a problem. Contact us today for the best rent-to-buy car, even if you are blacklisted.

Rent-to-buy car finance is a good option when you are blacklisted or if obtaining car finance is a struggle. We give four reasons why you should consider rent-to-buy car finance for your next vehicle purchase. 

1. Blacklisting is not a problem 

Unforeseen events can happen to anyone and if this leads to you being blacklisted, it can get very frustrating. At Earn-a-Car, you can get rent-to-buy car finance even if you are blacklisted. If you meet the criteria set by Earn-a-Car, instant approval is possible.  

2. You can get back to work faster 

If you need a vehicle for work purposes, every moment you do not have a vehicle is a loss of income. Earn-a-Car is able to process your application quickly, which means that you can be driving away in a rent-to-own vehicle in less than one hour.   

3. The contractual obligations for a rent-to-buy car are clearly communicated

Vehicle finance companies have a lot of rules and regulations. At Earn-a-Car, the agreement signed between both parties clearly communicates in easy to understand terminology, what you can expect from Earn-a-Car and what Earn-a-Car expects of you. The contracts are flexible, and you are normally allowed to end the agreement with one calendar months’ written notice and the return of the vehicle.  

4. You can earn cash for successful leads

If you choose to use Earn-a-Car for your rent-to-buy car finance, there is also the opportunity to earn cash for successful leads. If you know of someone that is struggling to get vehicle finance, you can introduce them to Earn-a-Car. If they qualify for vehicle financing, and the deal is completed, you can receive R750 for every closed deal. 

Earn-a-Car can help you own a vehicle in as little as fifty-four months, with many vehicle models you can choose from. For more information, visit our website and drive away with your rent-to-buy car.

Buying a car can be stressful, but a rent-to-buy car takes some of the pressure away as it provides easy vehicle finance even if you are blacklisted or have a bad credit rating. However, every prospective car owner must be proactive when choosing a car. Here are six important things to check when buying a pre-loved or pre-owned car.

1. Affordability of rent-to-buy pre-owned car 

The car you choose must fit your budget and lifestyle. Determine affordability by breaking down the costs into monthly payments, insurance and maintenance costs. Also, consider family requirements, such as the need for a more spacious car if there are children or if you need extra space for weekend getaways.

2. Future maintenance costs

The brand and category of car you choose should also be guided by the potential future maintenance costs of services and car parts. A pre-owned car might require more regular servicing than a new car. 

3. Service history of car

The service history of the pre-owned car shows whether the vehicle has been serviced regularly and by reputable companies or mechanics. The history of the vehicle can also be accessed via it’s VIN number to check if it was in any accidents. 

4. Odometer reading

The odometer reading of the pre-owned car indicates how far the car has been driven. A high odometer reading on a relatively young car could indicate that the car has been driven extensively, which is a risk. 

5. Mechanical inspection report

A mechanical inspection report provides proof that the pre-owned vehicle is in a good mechanical condition and is usually performed by a third party. A good vehicle inspection will also include a structural, electrical and body panel assessment. 

6. Test drive the pre-owned car

Always test drive the pre-owned car to listen for any strange noises and get a feel for the car on the road. Switch everything on and off in the car to ensure it is working well. The third-party doing the mechanical inspection can also do a test drive and give you professional feedback. 

Earn-a-car has helped over 5 000 people get access to affordable vehicle finance with no hidden terms and conditions.  For more information, visit our website and see how you can purchase a pre-loved rent-to-buy car.

Washing your rent-to-buy car regularly is an investment in maintaining the value of your vehicle. It shows your pride in your vehicle and offers an opportunity to inspect the car for anything that needs attention, whether uneven tyre tread or chips to the paintwork. 

Why wash your rent-to-buy car regularly? 

Your car simply looks better when it is washed regularly, and this gives an appearance of caring by the owner. Bird droppings that land on your car are quite acidic and can damage the paint of your car, so the sooner it is removed, the better. Dust that collects on your car can potentially scratch the surface paint. Washing your car also offers you the opportunity to look for loose license plates, hubcaps, wires, or possible battery corrosion. 

How to wash your rent-to-buy car properly 

Always use cleaning products specially created for cars, choose reputable brands, and use a cloth or mitt that will not scratch the car’s paintwork. Then evaluate the condition of your vehicle. If it is less dirty, a quick wash will suffice. Before you start washing, spray down the car to remove loose dust or dirt. 

Use the three-bucket system. One bucket is filled with soapy water and the second with just clean water. You don’t want to wash your car with dirty water, so rinse the dirty cloth or mitt in the bucket with clean water, before dipping it into the soapy water bucket again. Keep the third bucket exclusively to clean your car’s tyres. Dry the car with a soft cloth and polish if necessary. 

Tips to keep your rent-to-buy car neat 

Somehow things always seem to accumulate inside your rent-to-own car. Why not use these tips to keep your car neat and organised?

  • Keep a takeaway coffee cup in one of the cup holders for dirty tissues or empty chip packets.
  • Use different sized bags to sort and store the items that are used regularly by the family, but somehow ends up cluttering your car’s cubby hole.

Earn-a-Car will help you find the perfect pre-owned car that fits your budget. Contact us today for your rent-to-buy car today.

Safety should always be paramount with a rent-to-own vehicle. Monitoring and rectifying the wheel alignment of your vehicle will keep you and your family safe and save you money by not having to buy new tyres often, in the long run. We share facts you need to know about wheel alignment and how it impacts the condition of your vehicle’s tyres. 

Why is wheel alignment important for your rent-to-own vehicle? 

Correct wheel alignment helps your vehicle’s tyres perform well, last longer and improves the handling of the vehicle. Since the signs of wheel misalignment appear gradually, paying attention to your vehicle can save time, money and keep you safe behind the wheel.

What is wheel alignment? 

The system that connects the vehicle to its wheels is called the suspension and wheel alignment refers to an adjustment of the vehicle’s suspension. Proper alignment of the suspension means adjusting the angles of the tyres, which affects how they make road contact. 

Signs that a wheel alignment service is required on your rent-to-own vehicle

There are clear signs that indicate wheel alignment is required:

  • Vibration of the steering wheel when driving.
  • Vehicle pulls to the left or right when driving.
  • The steering wheel is off centre when driving straight.
  • You notice an uneven tread wear on your vehicle tyres.

What do technicians look at when they check the wheel alignment of your rent-to-own vehicle? 

Technicians specifically look at three things when they check the wheel alignment of your vehicle – camber, toe and caster.

  • Camber alignment: this is the inward or outward angle of the tyre when viewed from the front of the vehicle. Misalignment of the camber might be caused by worn bearings, ball joints or other wheel-suspension parts.
  • Toe alignment: the extent to which the vehicle’s tyres turn inward or outward when viewed from above. This affects tyre tread wear. 
  • Caster alignment: the angle of the steering axis when viewed from the side of the vehicle. The caster angle balances the steering, stability and cornering of your vehicle. 

Poorly maintained roads and hitting potholes at speed are just two causes negatively impacting the wheel alignment of your rent-to-buy vehicle. Have your vehicle’s wheel alignment checked regularly and keep your family safe.

Earn-a-Car provides easy vehicle finance when you have a low credit score, so your credit history will not affect your car leasing application. Contact us today for a quality rent-to-own vehicle.
