How does pre-approval classic car finance work?

Of course, Max Loans can help by approving a loan for a classic car that you have already found and fallen in love with but what if you are still looking?


Well, we can pre-approve you for a classic car loan if you are in the market to buy, but haven’t quite found the perfect vehicle. With a classic car loan from Max Loans, you also get the freedom to choose where you buy your car. You can buy from a dealership, online or in any other form of private sale. On top of that, knowing your maximum limit aids the budgeting process immensely. When you know exactly how much you are able to spend on a car, you are able to avoid the disappointment of realising you have been pursuing a vehicle you can’t really afford. What matters to us is helping you realise your dreams, not where you purchase your classic car from. A pre-approved classic car loan can even help you negotiate a better price as a cash buyer!
