Pawnbroking FAQs

  • How does Pawnbroking work?

    Pawnbroking your car is the same as pawnbroking any valuable item. We give a loan secured against the value of your vehicle whilst it is placed in storage during the term of the contract. When you agree to the terms of the loan, we pick up your vehicle, examine your documents and deliver it to one of our carefully selected storage locations. Once this is done your payment will be released. You are given the freedom and flexibility to decide how much or when you make your repayments during the term of the contract to settle your balance. Once your loan is settled, we can deliver the vehicle back to you or you can choose to recontract for more money. Whatever choice you make, your Dedicated Client Manager will provide you with all the information you need.

    For more information please see our pawnbroking page or a guide on Pawnbroking from the Money Advice Service.

  • Are there really no credit checks?

    Pawnbroking loans do not require any intrusive credit checks as the loan is issued against the value of the asset, not the persons credit history.

    For more information please check the National Pawnbrokers Association's code of conduct.

  • When do I have to pay?

    You have the freedom to choose when repayments are made within the 6 month contract period. One of the best things about an Auto Advance Pawnbroking Loan is that you are not tied down to a specific date or amount you have to pay on a regular basis. You decide when you want to settle. Some customers pay off the total loan at once and save on paying interest, whilst others split the cost in instalments. Whatever works for your budget, all that matters is that the loan is paid off within the agreed term of your contract.

  • My car is a classic and needs regular servicing

    All vehicles that we safely deliver into storage are treated with the utmost care. If your vehicle requires special attention let your Dedicated Client Manager know and we will try our best to accommodate your needs.

    Please see Will my car be looked after?

  • How will I be paid?

    Once your vehicle is delivered to one of our storage locations we will then release funds directly into to the bank account you have provided us with through Faster payment.

  • Who picks up my car?

    Depending on the location of where your vehicle is currently stored, either your Dedicated Client Manager or one of our 600 mobile agents will come to meet you in person, review your documents, and inspect the condition of your vehicle. Once you agree to the terms of the loan and the final value presented, your vehicle will be loaded onto a flatbed and safely delivered to one of our storage locations. When the term of your loan is over and if you choose not to recontract, your vehicle will be delivered back to you in the same way it was originally picked up.

  • Will my car be looked after?

    We will look after your asset as if it were our own. With close to two decades in this field, we've grown to love cars as much as we love our customers. From the moment we pick up your vehicle, it will be securely lifted and transported to our storage locations. Once it arrives, you will receive a text confirming its delivery. By carefully selecting the storage locations we work with, we ensure a high standard of security and care for your asset. We can even arrange regular maintenance, dehumidified storage environments, dust covers, battery conditioners, and are open to providing any bespoke care your vehicle may require if you let your Dedicated Client Manager know.

  • What documents will I need?

    To successfully apply for a pawnbroking loan we will require you to provide:

    • Proof of address
    • Proof of identity
    • Proof of ownership

    Without these we cannot progress your application for a pawnbroking loan against your car.

    Please note that in some circumstances additional documentation may be required.
