Financing is available for private purchases
Motorists can also refinance their paid-up vehicles
True Price, the innovative start-up that provides free vehicle evaluations, is branching into the field of vehicle finance! It has entered into a joint venture (JV) with Auction Finance, and will be offering a range of financing and refinancing options.
Darryl Jacobson, managing director of True Price, says that the JV will target two areas of vehicle financing. “We will arrange financing for private vehicle sales or purchases. We will also offer the refinancing of paid-up vehicles,” he explains.
It’s extremely difficult – if not downright impossible – to arrange for financing on private deals. This JV is therefore truly significant for South African motorists.
True Price decided to offer vehicle financing because of customer demand. “We have provided thousands upon thousands of South Africans with free vehicle evaluations. Often, those people tell us that they are looking to buy or sell another vehicle. They ask for advice in this regard. Accordingly, in order to deliver the best possible customer service, we decided to expand into the field of vehicle finance,” Jacobson explained.
However True Price is not an authorised and accredited member of the Financial Services Board, which meant that a partner had to be sought. “We were determined to work with a team of experts in vehicle financing. We want to offer world-class service to our customers; nothing less will suffice.”
Enter Auction Finance, a company with decades of experience in vehicle financing. “The company employs a team of professionals who have specialist knowledge of vehicle financing. They are able to answer any financing-related queries. They are true experts!” Jacobson comments.
This is not the first time that Jacobson and the owners of Auction Finance are working together. “I have known and worked with Deline Olivier, managing director of Auction Finance, and Johan Olivier, head of marketing and sales at Auction Finance, for many years. No one is better qualified to provide vehicle financing advice to True Price clients than these two individuals,” maintains Jacobson.
Now, with immediate effect, True Price will be able to offer finance for private vehicle sales or purchases. “It’s a very simple process. Just follow the prompts and await a call from Auction Finance. It is easy and effortless,” explains Jacobson. Motorists will also have the option to refinance their paid-up vehicles in the same manner.
Jacobson promises to delight True Price clients with a professional service offering. “The field of financing can be quite tricky. There are lots of potential pitfalls for the layman – such as the fine print, for instance. Accordingly, buying or selling a car can be an emotional or traumatic experience. We are aiming to make the financing side of the deal as smooth and effortless as possible. So, whether you’re buying or selling privately, or whether you want to refinance your car, please do speak to us. We will partner you in the process!” he concludes.

True Price, the innovative start-up that is providing South African motorists with free vehicle evaluations, turns one this month (June 2019)!
Shopping for a used car in the R140 000 to R150 000 price range? Want something with relatively low mileage – say, 80 000 to 100 000 km? According to Darryl Jacobson, managing director of True Price, these are your eight best buys right now – because these vehicles have a relatively low resale value.
Korean cars are growing in terms of stature, quality and appeal. However South African motorists still prefer Japanese vehicles. This much has emerged after analysing the resale values of Korean versus Japanese cars. The data has been extrapolated from the vast records held by the innovative start-up, True Price. True Price has data pertaining to thousands of vehicles sold on bank repossession auctions on its system. This data is utilised to provide free vehicle evaluations to South African motorists.
The resale value of any vehicle – bakkies included – is significant when shopping for wheels. With bakkies, in fact, it is of massive importance – because companies often operate pick-up fleets. A bakkie buyer can literally lose tens of thousands of rands when the time comes to sell. Now, for the first time, it is possible to name the top 10 bakkies in the land – when it comes to resale values.
