Used Car Loan: How to get Approved – the Ultimate Guide

One day, you were in the midst of canvassing for an auto and you happen to stumble upon a great deal for a used one.  Great! Now comes the tricky part of paying for it.  You look through your options and decided it would be better to buy the car using a used car loan.
Luckily, Philippine banks are more than willing to lend you money, as long as they can be reasonably assured they’ll get their money back. Read more, to know more.
Note: Most cars in Automart.Ph are available for installment. You can apply for an autoloan after winning the bidding or auction for the car or vehicle in question. Automart will be there to guide you through the entire process so you don’t have to worry about a thing!

In a nutshell, the bank is really just interested in some information about you, before they approve your used car auto loan. This is partly government regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas or BSP, and mostly for the bank’s safety and due diligence. They want to:

  1. Find out who you are and your contact information, including your address.
  2. Make sure you have the capacity to pay them back for the car.
  3. Make sure you’re using the funds and the car for things that are above-board.

It seems like a lot of paperwork and documents, but it’s really easy and necessary. Though it may take a while, you are also assured that the bank will help you through the entire process.

So what are the documents needed? It partly depends on whether you’re taking the used car loan as a business or as an individual. Here are the requirements based on Eastwest Bank’s.  Most other banks have very similar requirements too.
