To get the loans process started, we recommend hitting ‘apply’ to your dream vehicle and filling out the form which should take around 5 minutes. A member of the credit team will then call you to discuss your application further.
Once your Uber or GoCar account is set up and you have met with the Carma team, we aim to get your vehicle to you within a week.
Currently Drive2Own offers brand new Hyundai Accents, i30s and VW Polos. We are always working to bring more choices to you the customer so stay tuned!
Our car offering is listed on the Carmaloans page. We have partnerships with car dealerships which can offer competitive prices on these vehicles. If your dream car is not on the list please hit the ‘add the car of my dreams’ button and we’ll make it happen!
During the 2-year contract term, we cover the vehicle business registration, CTP insurance and the vehicle is also covered with comprehensive ridesharing insurance under our fleet policy.
During the life of the contract, if you get into an accident, a bond of $1,500 will be immediately payable to us. If you are deemed not at fault in the accident, this will be refunded, however in an event where you are at fault, this will be used to cover the vehicle incident excess of $1,500. Although we will endeavour to place you with any spare vehicles we have in our fleet, please assume that you will be without car during the repair phase of an incident where you are at fault.
Drive2Own is operating in Sydney at the moment but aims to be in Brisbane and Melbourne by the end of 2016. We have expansion plans across the nation for 2017.
We offer Carmaloans Australia wide! So wherever you are, let us help you get in the car of your dreams.
Once your forms have been filled and you have spoken and provided documentation to our credit team, they will indicate an estimated timeframe. The process usually takes a few days or less.
The founders of Carma have the business philosophy of transparency and simplicity and firmly believe in the principle of good things happening to good people.
With Drive2Own, we wanted to offer good people the opportunity to rent to own a brand new vehicle in the shortest time possible with the most competitive full package rates on the market.
We can do this because we believe in our people and they believe in us. We are fully transparent with how the program works and sit with each candidate individually to make sure both parties are suitable for each other. We help the candidate, and the candidate helps us grow our business.
On the Carmaloans side of the business we understand how frustrating it can be when credit providers don’t take the time to understand your situation and needs. We tailor specific packages for the individual, ensure the lowest possible payment plans and the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
