What is a ute loan?

Are you planning to upgrade your ute or purchase a new one? A ute loan works just like a personal loan. That is, you borrow a specific amount of money and then pay it back with interest over an agreed term. To qualify you’ll need to submit an application and provide us with information to verify your identity and financial circumstances (such as a bank statement). As part of this process we will take into account your borrowing history, employment status, credit score, and other factors.

Why consider a ute loan?

A RateSetter ute loan lets you take advantage of your hard-earned credit rating to purchase the vehicle you need (or want) now and then make affordable monthly repayments to pay it off over the term of the loan. With RateSetter, you will benefit from competitive rates on a flexible new car loan that are often lower than those form traditional lenders such as a bank or dealership finance. Save more money by paying down the loan quicker. Using finance to buy a ute couldn’t be easier.

How does a ute loan work?

A ute loan works just like a standard personal loan. That is, you borrow a specific amount of money and then pay it back with interest over an agreed term. To qualify for a personal loan, you must submit an application and agree to a credit check that takes into account your borrowing history, employment status, credit score, and other factors.

What are the benefits of a ute loan?

Personal loans, including ute loans, allow you to enjoy a lower interest rate than you would receive with a credit card. They also offer a consistent repayment schedule, which makes it easier to budget in advance and avoid fees or penalties for late payments.

How much does a ute loan cost?

If you’re considering a ute loan, you may be unsure of how much it will cost. Fortunately, our ute loans are priced in a relatively straightforward way. The total cost of a ute loan comprises three main factors:

  • the interest rate (this may be fixed or variable)
  • a one-time establishment fee
  • ongoing fees (such as account maintenance fees, late payment fees, and other charges)

These costs are often combined to create a comparison rate that represents the total price of a loan. This allows you to compare different ute loans to find the one that best suits your needs.
