More about Import Car Finance
Since 1988, AFS has been providing finance for the purchase of imported vehicles and grey import cars.
We understand that buyers of imported cars are discerning and often spend invaluable hours of time researching the history & condition of the goods they want to buy, so the last thing you need is for a financial institution to tell you that the car is outside their lending criteria. Our aim is to finance any roadworthy type of imported car, irrespective of its origins, age or odometer. Whether you need a loan for an import people mover, import passenger vehicle or an import sports vehicle, AFS will be able to assist you and provide a very competitive interest rate.

An independent valuation of many vehicles can be provided by valuation specialists such as Glass's Guide and Redbook. However, when it comes to imported cars there is often limited information to provide a statistical based valuation - that's where the team at AFS come. Over the years we have built up an expertise in assessing collectable, specialty & imported vehicles and will tailor our approval of your loan around your unique car.

AFS enables you to borrow between $5,000 and $130,000 depending on our assessment of your capacity to repay and current circumstances. Loan terms range between 12 months and 60 months and we can even finance your comprehensive insurance so that you know your grey import will be covered at all times. 

No. The same fees and charges apply to a car loan for an imported vehicle with AFS as all standard loans.

Can I use a finance broker to obtain a loan for an imported car?

Yes. The AFS Import Car Loan product is used extensively by finance brokers as many of mainstream asset finance lenders will often only lend on cars distributed by large manufacturers.

Also if you were to arrange a loan through your bank, if the vehicle is over 7 years of age then the relevant product in an unsecured personal loan which is often more expensive than their standard car loan product.

Please note that if you use a finance broker you may be charged an origination fee which is separate to the AFS Fees & Charges but can also be financed as part of your loan. If you use a broker, you should ask for a copy of their credit guide and obtain a credit quote from them.
