Negotiate a better deal

Bargaining power

When you're buying property, the way to get the best deal is to negotiate both the price of the property and your mortgage rate separately. Why should it be any different when buying cars for your business?

Drive away on your terms

Negotiate your finance and vehicle separately and it could save you thousands over the course of your loan. We have a range of monthly repayment options and you can access a finance quote online in less than 60 seconds. We show you all the finance costs up front and you can customise a repayment that best suits your business needs. You can apply online or over the phone and be on your way to acquiring a vehicle or equipment or an upgrade.4

Upgrading or replacing

The simplest way to upgrade or replace your vehicles and equipment currently under finance is with our Replacement Pathway. Here’s an example of how it could work.

David and Elizabeth are joint owners of a construction company.

One of their excavators was coming to the end of its loan term and they decided they wanted to replace it with a newer model using CommBank Replacement Pathway.

By showing they had made on-time repayments for the last 12 months of their current loan, they were able to apply for new finance without needing to provide any additional financial information.

After a credit check, CommBank issued them with a conditional approval on the basis that their previous finance agreement was to be finalised, and their new monthly repayments were no more than 25% over what they were used to paying.

By using their good payment history and replacing like-for-like equipment, David and Elizabeth were able to use CommBank Replacement Pathway to get equipment finance faster and put their new excavator to use in their business sooner.1
