Our review of Auto Advance

Auto Advance are one of the more expensive logbook loan providers on the market (at time of writing), and their offering is similar to their competitors. They do however, boast that the whole process could take as little as an hour. For this to happen you would need to be close to a branch already and have all the necessary information with you. If you do need cash quickly then there may be better lending options out there for you.

Customers are given a degree of flexibility with Auto Advance and can choose to make their repayments either weekly or monthly. They are also able to settle the loan early without incurring any fees, and there are no administration or set-up charges, so when speaking to the Auto Advance agent there shouldn’t be any financial surprises. Do make sure that you can afford the monthly repayments though, as if you fall behind you could run the risk of losing your vehicle and damaging your credit history.

Auto Advance highlight their positive online reviews on their website, which is no surprise as they have achieved a rating of ‘great’ from TrustPilot. The positive reviews mostly revolve around the speediness of their service and the level of customer service, however, there are some customers who are left dissatisfied with the higher interest rate.

Overall verdict: One of the more expensive logbook lenders with little additional benefit. Auto Advance offer a solid service but if you are looking for this type of finance then there are cheaper lenders out there with better customer reviews.
