Car Title Loans in South Africa: Ins and Outs

Over the past decade, car title loans have soared in popularity worldwide. Right here in South Africa, an increasing number of people are choosing to pawn their vehicles, rather than approaching banks and other institutionalised lenders for funds.

Boats, bakkies, trucks and luxury cars are being used to raise capital.

What is a car title loan?

A car title loan is a type of secured loan that uses a fully paid up vehicle as collateral. It’s a commonly used term in the USA, and is the same as an asset-based loan against a car.

Are car title loans safe?

There are a few dodgy operators specialising in pawn and drive schemes. These schemes are expensive, high risk and even illegal in South Africa.

However, there are also reputable and accredited car loan providers with reliable track records. By reading user reviews and doing your homework online, you can ensure you’re dealing with a trusted asset-based lender.
