When you’re in a bind and need fast cash now, Loans Against Cars are a popular option. These secured loans allow you to receive funds using your car as collateral because it’s a valuable asset that you own.
Get a secured loan against your car without the hassle
Looking for a secured online loan? Our process is simple. Fill out the application and show that you own a vehicle, like a motorcycle or car. Because you own your vehicle, you have access to more loan options, helping you get the cash you need today.
While some other loan companies will keep your car for the duration of the loan, Swoosh is different. You can keep driving your car while you are paying off your loan.
With Swoosh, it’s only 3 steps
We like to keep life simple and stress-free with our quick and easy 3-step process.
1. Complete an online application on your mobile phone, computer or tablet. Applications only take minutes.
2. Approval of your loan is provided within 60 minutes of receiving your information (during business hours)*. The decision will arrive promptly — right in your inbox.
3. After approval, an offer is sent to you via email. Once you’ve signed the contract, we’ll send the money directly to your bank account!

At least 18 years of age
Be a permanent resident or valid visa holder of Australia

Structure for Loans Against Cars
At Swoosh, we give you all of the information upfront.
Here are all of the details on our secured collateral loans:
Online cash loan amount
Standard establishment fee
47% (Comparison Rate 66.0347%)**
Flexible repayment options
Weekly, fortnightly or monthly (based on your paydays)
Interest rate details
Our interest rates are fixed for the term of the loan — making things easy and straightforward. Rates are calculated daily on the outstanding balance.
Can I get a loan against a car if I have bad credit?
Yes, it is possible! Our car collateral loans are based on your current situation, not your past credit reports – this is why we offerbad credit loans.
After evaluating current bank statements we determine whether you have the ability to repay the loan. This way we don’t solely rely on a credit check – bad credit history follows thousands of Australians each year and we at Swoosh understand that this can happen to anyone. So if you’re able to pay off the loan now, you can borrow money against your car and get your cash flow sorted.
Debit dishonour fee
A $35.00 debit dishonour fee may be issued if a scheduled payment is missed or returned unpaid. You must still continue to pay the usual interest charges as described.
Why get a loan against your car?
Swoosh customers find that getting a loan by using their car as collateral is perfect for situations like:
Unexpected expenses like home repairs or medical bills
Family emergencies and expenses
School tuition and training programs
Upcoming weekend, holiday, or travel plans
Anything else that’s urgent and can be repaid later
The Swoosh difference
