Hello, i am hoping someone can recommend a good place to get a loan from? I am currently unemployed but i do own my car outright worth several thousand £, and am looking for a loan provider that will use my car as collateral. Please note i am NOT after any logbook loan type companies, but a provider that maybe you have had experience with and can recommend. I have tried the internet comparison sites but they do not allow me to enter the car to take the loan against.


Thanks :)

Hello there.


I haven't researched this, but I think your problem could be that a car is a depreciating asset, so not interesting to lend against.


What are you looking to achieve please?

Hi there,


It's likely that the only type of loan you'll find will be of the 'log book loan' nature, these are known as a bill of sale with the security aspect underpinned by an archaic set of rules introduced during the Victorian reign(!). One of the key reasons why log book loans are used is that the vehicle can easily be repossessed upon default - without the need of a court order.


If you're unemployed I would seriously suggested avoiding loans of this nature.


Are you looking to borrow to pay of existing borrowing?

If you are unemployed (receiving benefits?) what ever finance you seek will be refused, as you will not be able to show that you can service the repayments required.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.

some pawnbrokers will take cars, but these tend to need to be high end.


You will find lenders willing to lend to you, but the issue you will find is that the type of outfit that will lend to you is the type that will do so intending to have the car. If you are unemployed how will you repay the loan?

Can't you sell the car?


you can live off the money for the short term, maybe downgrade to a cheap run about if you need personal transport or join a car share club...


...you could also join one of the firms that allow you to rent your car out by the hour, that would provide you with a little income when you're not using the car.

People who haven't made mistakes, haven't made anything!
