What if my vehicle is still under finance?

AuoraLawrence Air Freight, Courier, Custom Clearance, Logistics,


If your vehicle is still under finance in Australia we can potentially still ship it across to New Zealand.

Every financial lender is different so the first step will be to contact your current finance company and ask for their terms regarding taking the vehicle out of the country.

Quite a few finance companies operate in both Australia and New Zealand so it could potentially be no problem at all.

The real ‘issue’ from their perspective would be that if the vehicle is the security against the loan, and you were to default on your payments, they would repossess the vehicle – Of course if you shipped this outside of Australia then of course this removes their ability to do so.

If the finance company will NOT allow the export of the vehicle outside of Australia you still have a couple of options:

1
Pay your loan out here in Australia if you have the funds available to free up the encumbrance on the vehicle.
2
Re-finance the loan through an Australian company that will allow the movement of the vehicle across to New Zealand.
3
Re-finance the loan through a New Zealand based Finance company and pay off your loan in full in Australia.
