Attending university while having a part time job can be stressful. Having to spend hours waiting for reliable public transport can increase your stress levels even more, as this is time you could be spending studying, or earning more money. Here’s how to make your university experience a learning adventure by having more time to study and getting to your part time job on-time, instead of having to wait for public transport: 

Rent-to-Own and Conquer Your Future

As a student, owning your first car makes up so much of the university experience. From digging between the couch cushions for spare change to buy petrol, to enjoying unforgettable road trips during mid-term breaks with your friends. 

The reality is that university fees are costly. Student loans and bursaries do assist by covering the cost of education. However, many students take on a part time job to pay for living expenses. If you live off campus, the need for reliable transport is even more important. 

Earn-a-Car has a simple, affordable solution in the form of rent-to-own! Here is how it works:

With every monthly payment you make, you are earning your ownership of your car. The easy monthly payments come at a fixed rate without hidden costs and there are a number of added benefits to using the rent-to-own option, which include:

    • No bank loans or vehicle finance applications with high interest rates and complicated legal agreements,
    • You can earn your car without having an existing credit score,
    • Easy monthly payments by debit order, which means you’ll never need to remember to make the payment, 
    • All our cars are reliable and checked by expert mechanics to ensure the safety of our clients,
    • Our cars are fitted with Matrix trackers, and our clients have access to emergency response for your added peace of mind,
    • Accidental, roadside and maintenance assistance is a part of the agreement, so you’ll never be left without a means to take care of your car, and
    • We have a wide variety of fuel efficient cars to suit your pocket.

Partner with Earn-a-Car and rent-to-own your car today.

If rebuilding your credit score is one of your New Year’s resolutions, then opting to get a car by means of a rent-to-own finance option from Earn-a-Car can help you. 

Here’s how:

Rent-to-Own and Manage your Credit

It’s no secret that vehicle finance is expensive, especially if a high interest rate is allocated to the loan. Furthermore, if loan interest rates increase, you will need to pay more for your car each month, which for many people may be unaffordable and increases the risk of maintaining a good credit score. The rent-to-own finance option from Earn-a-Car can help you manage your credit and avoid some risks associated with traditional vehicle financing.

How Does Rent-to-Own Help You to Manage Your Credit? 

Here are just a few ways in which renting-to-own your car will help you to manage your credit:

Bypass Credit Ratings and Unaffordable Interest Rates 

If you have a low credit rating (also known as being blacklisted with the credit bureau) you might find it very difficult to obtain vehicle finance from a bank. If you are successful, the interest rate might be extremely high, thereby drastically increasing the amount you have to pay back and extending the length of time it will take to repay the loan. With the rent-to-own option, you won’t be paying interest, you simply earn your car month-to-month. 

No Additional Debt

With Earn-a-Car, you’re not taking on additional debt in the form of a loan to finance your car. Instead, you are renting a car and earning monthly cash backs to pay it off. You don’t need to have a credit history to earn a car with the rent-to-own finance option either. 

Provides you with your own Transport 

The rent-to-own option helps you to take control of your future by not only supplying a car that is in good condition, but also puts you in a position to secure your monthly car repayments over a long period of time, by not having the risk of increased interest rates. An added advantage is that you have access to your own transport, without having to pay for public transport or having to rely on car pools that can be unreliable. 

Freedom to Choose in Changing Financial Circumstances

If your financial situation changes, you have the option to trade down to a model that is more affordable or to trade up. If times get really tough, you can cancel your agreement with Earn-a-Car by giving one months notice. This way, your credit rating is not jeapordised even more and you won’t have the added stress of not being able to repay a loan.

Let 2020 be the year you take control of your future and manage your credit with Earn-a-Car. It is not only the smart, but also the affordable way to rent-to-own a car!

Whether 2020 is the year you intend to get a reliable vehicle that does not cost you a fortune in maintenance costs or you simply want to have access to your own transport without having to stand in long queues waiting for public transport, Earn-a-Car can help you reach your goal. 

In the current economic climate, buying a car is simply not an option for many South Africans. That is why Earn-a-Car makes the finance process of owning a car, more possible, simple and affordable. 

Why Rent-to-Own in 2020?

Here are four reasons why you should consider renting-to-own your next vehicle from Earn-a-Car:

Independence

While having a car might seem like a luxury, many South Africans simply cannot earn a living without having one. Access to safe and reliable public transport is a challenge, especially when having to commute to work daily or late at night. Rent-to-own is a finance option that makes it affordable to earn a car by renting it over a long period of time, until you own the car. 

Blacklisted or Poor Credit Rating

If you don’t have a positive credit rating, or you are blacklisted, getting vehicle finance for a car is almost impossible. But, with Earn-a-Car, there are no credit checks because you will be leasing the car. This way, you’ll be earning your car with every monthly payment, giving you all the benefits of having a car without the worries of being approved for vehicle finance. 

Affordability

More debt to your name means more interest on your loans. These loans are paid back at often very high interest rates. At Earn-a-Car you pay a fixed rental amount with no interest. And, a percentage of the rental amount is accrued on your behalf and made available to you, to assist you in servicing and maintaining your car – at no extra cost. Earn-a-Car even offers comprehensive accident cover and roadside assistance to give you added peace of mind.

Flexibility

If you’re looking for flexibility, you’ll be thrilled to know that you can set your own term for earning your car (from as little as 54 months). And, you can also cancel your agreement with Earn-a-Car by giving one month’s notice. If you’re struggling to keep up with your current payment plan, you have the option to trade down to a more affordable car.  

If you’re looking for a simple, affordable way to finance your next car, partner with Earn-a-Car in 2020.

Washing your car on a regular basis will help to ensure its longevity. Whether you have a rent-to-buy vehicle or you have already paid off your car, here are three reasons why you should take it to the car wash at least once a month. 

It will Save You Money in the Long Term

Other than looking neat and tidy, a regular wash will help protect the value of your car by minimising potential damage caused by dirt and dust scratching on your car’s paint work. It also removes pollen, tree sap where experts strongly recommend that you wash your car at least once a week, or soon after driving on a dirt road. 

It is more Comfortable 

There is nothing quite like approaching your car when it is clean, and when getting into your car, enjoying a fresh pleasant smell. A dirty, cluttered car tends to increase stress levels. Maximise the comfort of being in your car by washing it  regularly and taking the time to throw away rubbish such as empty cooldrink bottles, food wrappers and till slips. Remove items of clothing and clear your boot of any unnecessary goods that could increase the weight of the vehicle. You will be amazed at how much difference it can make!

Minimise the Effects of Natural Elements 

If your car is parked outdoors during the day or at night, washing it regularly and taking it for a protective wax treatment will minimise the potential damage caused by the sun and rain. 

Need a car? Consider the easy vehicle finance option of rent-to-buy, also known as rent-to-own, offered by Earn-a-Car. Contact us now for more information on how this finance option works and why it could be the solution that you need.

Crime increases leading up to and including the festive season, especially vehicle hijackings. No one wants to be in a situation where their family and their lives are threatened. Always keep your handbag or luggage locked in the boot and your wallet and cellphone away from the view of persons who may approach your vehicle. 

Interestingly, most hijackings take place in the driveways of residential areas, while stationary at an intersection or stop street. A study conducted by the National Hijack Prevention Academy CC indicated that the majority of hijackings take place on Fridays, followed by Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Here are four safety tips to help you avoid being a victim of a hijacking. 

Always be Aware of Your Surroundings 

While stationary at a stop street or red robot, people take advantage of this opportunity to use their cellphone while at a stop street or a red robot. Instead, stay alert to your surroundings. Check your rear and side mirrors constantly, for any potential person or persons approaching your vehicle. Chances are you can reduce your risk of being hijacked simply by being aware of your surroundings at all times. 

When having to stop behind a vehicle, keep at least one car length distance away from the car in front of you. If you notice suspicious persons approaching your car, attract attention by hooting several times. The extra distance in front of you will help you edge forward slightly and confuse potential hijackers. 

Avoid Travelling Alone 

Opportunistic criminals are less likely to target vehicles with more than one passenger. They usually aim for solo drivers, where women are their primary targets. 

Limit how often you go out at Night 

Your chances of being hijacked greatly increase if you tend to go out at night. Most hijackings take place between 8 pm and midnight. That, however, does not mean that you can relax when heading out during the day. Hijackings are also common between 10 am to 2 pm. 

Know how to React in a Hijacking Situation

It is important to know what to do in a hijacking situation, that could potentially save your life. The best thing to do is to cooperate with the hijackers to prevent an increase in aggressive behaviour. Avoid looking them in the eye and do not make any sudden movements. Where possible, gather as much information as possible, such as the number of people involved, weapons, clothing, gender, race and height, accent and language. 

These four safety tips can help you to protect yourself from a potential hijacking situation in South Africa. 

Are you in need of a vehicle but have struggled to find car finance because of your low credit score? Then consider the option known as rent-to-own, also referred to as  rent-to-buy. Contact Earn-a-Car today for more information at 080 327 6222.

Trying to decide what gift to give yourself this festive season? Consider getting a car that is in good condition on a rent-to-buy finance plan! Here are a few reasons why it is the ultimate choice for you and your family. 

What is Rent-to-Buy? 

Rent-to-buy, also referred to as rent-to-own, is the easiest way to own a second-hand vehicle. With this finance option, you will be paying a car rental fee over a pre-determined amount of time, until you own the car. This can vary between two to four years, depending on the monthly repayments. The monthly amount does not change and you won’t be paying off interest either. If you have not been able to obtain vehicle finance because you are blacklisted or have a low credit score, we are able to assist you too. 

Is Rent-to-Buy Right for Me? 

In order to rent-to-buy or rent-to-own a car, you will need the following:

    • Proof of income,
    • Valid driver’s license 
    • A minimum upfront payment of approximately R16,500
    • Be able to make a minimum monthly payment of R5,000 or more. This amount does include tracker, roadside assistance and a number of essential value adds. 

If you meet the minimum requirements, you could own the car in as little as 54 months after signing your rent to buy agreement and paying the monthly instalments, every month, with Earn-a-Car.

Celebrate the Festive Season 

The festive season is the perfect time to enter into a rent-to-buy finance plan.  With so much to do and so many places to go, partnering with Earn-a-Car takes less than two hours and you’ll have a reliable car that has been quality approved by our expert mechanics.  

For information about the rent-to-buy process at Earn-a-Car, speak to any one of our friendly sales consultants at 080 327 6222 or email sales@earnacar.co.za.

Just the idea that your car may break down while on a long journey is daunting. You can however take precautions that may prevent this, that does require time and money but will assist you in making sure that your car is in tip-top condition. Here are three helpful tips: 

Check the Car’s vitals

Is the tyre pressure and tread adequate? In the morning, once you have reversed your car from its overnight parking position, check the floor for any liquid spills that may be caused by an oil or water leak. Check that all the lights are working, including the hazards.  Can the wiper blades provide clear vision if it rains? Is the spare tyre in good working condition and when applying the brake, do the brakes respond immediately? These are the essentials to check before driving a long distance. 

Take it in for a Service

One way to be sure that your car will get you from point A to B without breaking down, is to book it in for a service shortly before you are due to leave. Ask the service manager to complete a full quality check on your vehicle and get all the maintenance requirements, repaired. This will ensure that your vehicle is in good working condition and that any existing issues are repaired, before they potentially become bigger, and more expensive repairs in the future. It will also give you one less thing to worry about leading up to your journey.

Check All Fluids

Check the car’s oil, radiator, windscreen, power steering and brake fluid. Many of these fluids are quite easy to check. If you do need assistance, pop into a reputable vehicle repair workshop to get expert advice. 

Want to take a road trip but need a car? Do you earn a stable monthly income, have a valid drivers licence and are a South African citizen? Come to Earn-a-Car! We specialise in rent-to-own – also referred to as rent-to-buy, finance options. We pride ourselves on delivering hassle free vehicle finance that helps you to own a car you choose in as little as 54 months, even if you are blacklisted! Contact us today for further details.

Buying a car is a major milestone for most people. It is also a big responsibility that can incur a lot of expenses if you don’t do your research beforehand. Buying a car with cash is the easiest way to buy one, and you are able to save a large amount of money by not having to pay interest fees over the duration of the contract. However, very few people do have the financial resources to buy a car with cash.  Here are a few alternate finance options to consider:

Bank Finance:

Those with a positive credit score might opt for this option. You apply for vehicle finance directly from a bank to buy your car. However, interest rates for these loans are often high and do depend on your credit score.  The interest rates are not fixed, so you will need to take precautions and anticipate fluctuating interest rates. Taking out a loan with the bank can also make more expensive options look tempting, but you will feel the effect of impulse buys in the long run. Depending on your agreement, you may also need to take out more expensive car insurance to protect the bank’s interests, which means higher monthly expenses. After taking all these precautions, if you fall behind on a payment or two, the bank may repossess your car. 

Dealership Finance:

Essentially, this finance option is similar to taking out a vehicle loan from a bank,  the difference is that dealer-arranged financing saves you time and effort as the car dealer approaches the bank and acts on your behalf. Once you have decided on your dream car, you will fill out a credit application, which the dealer will submit to several banks, on your behalf, to obtain the best possible vehicle finance plan and options. The same rules and considerations outlined above, apply. 

Rent-to-Buy

Rent-to-buy options have become increasingly popular in recent years. A rent-to-buy car finance plan is similar to leasing a vehicle, but over a longer period of time. However, Instead of handing the vehicle back to the leasing agent at the end of the term, you get to keep the car.

This is a worthwhile option for people who would like to own a car. It is also a good choice for business people, as reliable pre-owned cars are available and the monthly fee does include basic insurance, roadside assistance and built-in tracking device. 

Unlike with bank and dealership finance, those who are blacklisted or have a negative credit score, are also eligible for rent-to-buy easy vehicle finance. With rent-to-buy financing, you do not take out a new line of debt, and a credit check is not part of the application process. An upfront admin fee is required, thereafter payments remain fixed every month, with zero interest, as per the contract agreement. 

Rent-to-buy contracts may be upgraded, downgraded or terminated. There may, however, be a mileage fee depending on the number of kilometres you drive each month or year, and the car may be repossessed if, at any time, you are unable to make your monthly repayments. Road costs that include toll fees, car licensing and having to pay for services and maintenance are for your own account. 

If you can stick to long-term financial commitments, there is no reason why the rent-to-own a car option should not work for you. Depending on how much you are willing to pay each month, your ideal car could be yours a lot sooner than you think! Contact Earn-a-Car today to find out more.

Hail storms can cause severe damage to property, people and cars. You might not be able to control the climate, but there are a few precautions you can take this summer to ensure you do not incur unnecessary expenses or have to file insurance claims. Those living in Gauteng, the Northern Cape and North West should take extra precautions against hailstorms. Below are six tips on how to keep yourself and your car safe: 

Be Proactive 

As hail season approaches, take steps to protect yourself and your family. Watch the news for weather updates or keep a close eye on your weather app for hail storms. Store a few fleece blankets,towels or a duvet in the boot of your car and drape them over your car at the first sign of hail if you not able to park under cover. 

Cover all Angles

Make sure your garage or carport can protect your car from strong winds that direct hail from the left, right, the rear and front of your car. If you have a covered area, shade cloth with links that can be clicked into pegs in the ground can also help protect your car and is more affordable than building a hollywood garage.  

Trim all Trees

Old branches, large and small can easily snap off during a severe hail storm. Make sure you keep the trees in your garden trimmed throughout the year to avoid potential damage. 

Be Careful 

Drive cautiously during a hail storm. A fast-moving car will incur more damage than a stationary vehicle, so if possible, park safely on the far side of the road or under a bridge, away from traffic.  

Parking

Do not park under flimsy structures during a hail storm. These could quite easily be blown away in strong winds. If you have to park under shade cloth or tarpaulin, make sure that there aren’t any rips or tears in the material to avoid hail from getting through and damaging your car. 

Coverage 

In the event that you do get caught in a hail storm, make sure your insurance covers hail damage. 

Hail damage is a costly expense that affects you, as a customer and the economy. Now that you know how to keep your car safe, contact Earn-a-Car to learn more about rent-to-own options. We provide car finance even to those with a negative credit record.

Whether you are thinking of travelling inland to catch a glimpse of the Big 5, or visiting one of our coastal cities to enjoy the beach, South Africa has something for everyone! 

Cape Town – The Mother of All Cities

There is a reason Cape Town was voted the World’s #1 Travel Destination. The Mother City is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on earth, situated at the tip of SA, where the summers are balmy, and the beaches blissfully cool. 

When you are not lounging by the seaside, you might want to go shopping at the V&A Waterfront, visit the Garden Route, enjoy some good food and world class wines in the Cape Winelands, watch a sunset concert at Kirstenbosch or take a trip up Table Mountain where you can have a birds’-eye view of the magical Cape. 

Eastern Cape – The Malaria-Free Big 5 Experience

Visit the Eastern Cape for a stress-free Big 5 Safari. If you are travelling with children and pregnant women who cannot risk exposure to anti-malaria medication, this is an option for you.

KwaZulu-Natal – Historic Battlefields and Beautiful Beaches

KZN is the perfect self-drive vacation! You can visit uShaka Marine World for an ocean experience unlike any other, or book into a game lodge and enjoy 4×4 guided tours with professionals. 

Johannesburg – City of Gold 

Once just a casual stop, Johannesburg has become a tourist destination in its own right. The city boasts a great selection of hotels, cafés and guesthouses including a buzzing night scene for those who enjoy stepping onto the dance floor. Sandton is a shopping paradise filled with high-end boutiques to suit every preference. If you are up for a history lesson, a trip to the Apartheid Museum is always an enlightening experience. 

The Sabie Falls Route – Mpumalanga 

For a truly invigorating experience, visit this waterfall wonderland in Mpumalanga. You will find more waterfalls along the Sabie Falls Route than any place else in Africa. During the waterfall tour, you will see the Bridal Veil Falls (a gentle tracery of spray and water that is draped along the cliff like a bride’s veil), the Lone Creek and the Horseshoe Falls – yes, it is shaped like a horseshoe! Take a breath and relax while viewing the Berlin Falls (resembling a massive white candle), and The Lisbon Falls, which are South Africa’s highest waterfall with a 90-meter drop into a gorge far below. It will definitely be a trip to remember!

Whether you are in search of a vibey nightlife or need to relax in a quiet and tranquil environment South Africa has got it all.  And Earn-a-Car has the car to get you there safely. Get in touch today to learn more about a rent-to-own finance plan for your December getaway.
