With the massive spike in interest in caravans and the demand for caravans in response to COVID-19 travel restrictions, this Easter and school holiday season is sure to be a busy time on the roads and in holiday parks across Australia. The most popular locations are sure to book out quickly so if you're yet to make your plans, contacting Big 4 Parks or NRMA Holiday Parks could be a good place to start. If your preferred destination is not available, think of it as a great opportunity to discover somewhere new. Tourist locations around Australia are keen to welcome visitors and there is sure to be a place that suits your requirements.
For this with a caravan with complete off the grid and self-sustainable inclusions, there are both many free camping sites across the country to consider or the option to go off-road and find somewhere quite remote and special.
Don’t forget to prepare your caravan for the trip by following the guidelines as provided by the manufacturer and advice from experts. We have posted a number of articles on preparing your caravan which you are welcome to review and we suggest you check out caravan community forums and other online sources for tips and advice.
Last Minute Caravan Buys
If you’re not as lucky as our many Jade Caravan Finance customers and as yet you haven’t purchased your caravan, then you’d better get moving if you want to enjoy an Easter or autumn getaway in your own vehicle.
Most caravans are built to order and there are reports of long waiting times for delivery. But there are some new manufacturers offer shorter times plus there may be showroom models and used caravans ready to roll. If stocks of traditional caravans are hard to find, consider other styles such as a camper trailer, a campervan or motorhome or a slide-on camper trailer.
Fortunately sourcing a caravan loan through Jade is a straightforward process, available year round and can be handled at a fast pace to meet purchaser deadlines.
Quick Caravan Loans: The Process
As professional experts in caravan finance, Jade enjoys the advantage of direct, industry-level access to our lender network to source quotes, process applications and ensure prompt loan settlement. If you decide you can handle your loan yourself, then you’re likely to have to spend quite some time on the phone and possibly on hold, to secure quotes from finance companies and banks.
Our process is swift and extremely well-organised. The loan process can happen concurrently with your caravan buying steps. Contact us immediately to provide the necessary details for the loan application, even if you haven’t selected a caravan or completed the sale.
Our consultants can get onto sourcing you a quote based on an estimated price at this stage. This is known as a secured campervan loan. The loan is sourced, quoted and approved based on a dollar amount rather than on the purchase of a specific caravan. No obligation is attached so if you can’t secure the right van and don’t proceed with the loan, no problem.
To complete the application form we will need a range of details and information from you, as is required by the consumer credit laws. So preparing details about your employment, residential status, income, debts, expenses and assets beforehand will expedite the whole process.
Once we have that, our consultants are off and running – at speed if your holiday plans demand it. And there’s no extra charge for an express loan service. In many sectors of life you will be charged a fee for a faster service delivery but not at Jade. Our cheap interest rates on caravan loans apply to all loans, regardless of timing.
Fast Approvals and Prompt Settlement
Once you accept our caravan loan quote, then we arrange fast approval so everything is ready to finalise when you have sorted your caravan purchase. The final stages involve the caravan dealer or seller or yourself, supplying us with their invoice for the sale of the caravan. Hint – don’t forget to include all the accessories and options when you make the initial purchase so they can be included in the overall loan.
Your Jade consultant liaises between our lender and the dealer to pay the invoice so you can take delivery of your caravan. You will need to arrange caravan insurance and registration. For insurance, a cover note is quite quick to secure and will allow you a period of time to finalise the policy. Registration may be able to be handled through the dealer for brand new caravans. Checking with your state roads authority is recommended.
So if you’re planning an Easter, autumn or winter getaway in your new van or camper trailer, Jade can assist with organising the finance quickly and easily. So start looking for that caravans finance and plan your route.
