Is a Logbook Loan right for you?
Many of our applications come from people with less than perfect credit ratings. If you have a poor credit score and are unable to obtain finance from lenders with a lower interest rate, then a Logbook Loan could be a fast and effective option available to you. As you'll see from our comparison table, LogbookCalculator can offer you a loan against your car at a potentially fairer rate than our competitors.

It’s important that when taking out credit you’re able to afford the repayments comfortably and we assess this during your application. If you intend to take out a loan on your car to fund repayments of past loans or credit then we suggest it may be worthwhile to investigate other options that might be available to you, such as debt resolution or consolidation.

Seeing your car
Logbook Calculator are able to provide loans throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and also through our panel in Scotland. Before we release your money we need to come to your home or place of work to inspect your vehicle and complete the paperwork. One of our loans agents can come to you and complete your loan application in person. Our agents are professional, friendly and inviting.

Repaying your loan with LogbookCalculator.com is simple. You can choose to make your payments monthly or weekly via bank transfer or continuous payment authority. Remember, keeping up with your payments is crucial as your car could be repossessed if you’re not able to repay the loan. If you do find yourself unable to keep up with payments it’s important to contact us as soon as you can.
As a responsible lender, it’s our duty to do due diligence and assure the applicant is in a financial position to repay the loan. However, since the loan is backed by your car this type of loan doesn't necessarily require you to have a good credit history. This is good news for those with an emergency finance need who are unable to borrow money elsewhere. We will, of course, have to make sure you have sufficient income to cover the terms of the loan.
If you wish to borrow money from us your car must be free of finance and you must be aged 18 or above.
Bill of Sale
A Bill of Sale is what gives us security on the vehicle. This means that:
Until you have repaid your loan we technically own your vehicle. However, the great thing about a bill of sale is you can still keep driving it. Once you have paid off your loan the ownership goes back to you. So as long as you maintain payments you can carry on as normal.
The Bill of Sale will be registered with the High Court in London and the register is open to public inspection.
If you default on the payment of your loan, or other terms of the loan agreement, we will have the right to serve a default notice to you under the Consumer Credit Act 1974. If you do not make good the default, within the time stated in the notice, we will be entitled to take possession of your vehicle and sell it. You should note that we do not need a court order to repossess your vehicle,
Unlike in the case of hire purchase and conditional sale agreements you are not protected from repossession of the vehicle where one-third or more of the total amount payable has been repaid.
If your vehicle is repossessed and sold for an amount of money that is insufficient to pay off the money you owe us you will still have to pay the shortfall. The sale of the vehicle does not put an end to the loan.
Failure to keep up payments may result in your car being repossessed.
At this time we offer logbook loans on cars, vans and motorbikes.
It’s possible to secure a logbook loan on a business vehicle.
Evaluation of your car
Your car will be inspected before proceeding with the loan. We have to make sure you’re car is in good working order and that all of the logbook documents and paperwork are in your own name. Only the car owner will be able to release funds from the vehicle.
You can apply for a logbook loan through us using your business vehicle as collateral.
How much can I borrow?
Just as with our other customers, we lend to business’ on the same basis. Our loans range from £500 to £25,000 depending on the value of the vehicle. Generally, we can lend on up to 75% of the vehicles value and so a car worth £2,000 (for example) could qualify for a loan of £1,500.
