Times are tough in SA at the moment.
Sometimes you just need a little friendly help to get over a cash flow bump.
At DriveAwaySA we believe that the lockdown to contain the spread of Covid-19 in South Africa is necessary and that at this moment in time our primary focus, both individually and collectively, should be on securing and maintaining our health during this period.
We can’t ignore the fact that many of us are experiencing a high level of anxiety due to the financial uncertainty we are currently facing.
What IS certain is that DriveAwaySA will be there to assist all Capetonians and Cape Town’s small businesses that will be in need of a short-term cash flow injection in order to ease the transition between coming out of lockdown and satisfying all of the financial obligations and commitments we will need to catch up on.
Due to the lockdown, we are not processing applications right now.

Plan your cash flow
For after lockdown
WE BUY YOUR CAR.
YOU KEEP IT.
YOU BUY IT BACK LATER.
This is how it works… (the service will resume after the lock down.)
- If you need R40,000 or more and need it fast, we can help.
- Sadly we can only offer this help in Cape Town currently.
- If you own your car outright, if it is 2005 or newer and has done less than 250 000km's, DriveAwaySA will arrange to buy your car from you and deposit cash into your account in 24 – 48 hrs.
- Even though we will be the owner of your car you get to keep driving your car everyday as normal.
- DriveAwaySA will then charge you a very reasonable monthly rental fee so you can keep driving the car everyday as normal. Full disclosure – this is how we make our money.
- Once you are back on your feet you can buy your car back for the same amount it was bought for.
- This is NOT “a pawn my car drive it" scam. Its safe, legal and fair..
Don’t fall victim to any “Pawn my car and drive it” scams.
These unscrupulous companies target individuals who are in need of instant cash loans. They focus on people who are unable to access other cash any other way due to being black listed or having a poor credit score. Using their victim’s vehicle as collateral, they will do cash loans with no credit check, for an amount that is a fraction of the actual value of the vehicle. They make their money by charging exorbitant interest rates and fees. They know full well that their victim is unlikely to be able to afford the repayment costs. When they default they take the person’s car and keep chasing them for the outstanding fees. DriveAwaySA is different in that we buy your car. No loan repayments and no interest. It is your choice to keep renting your car, buy it back from us or return the car. Zero ongoing fees after the car is returned or bought back.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is this a loan against my car?
Not at all! We will actually purchase your vehicle, and ownership of the vehicle will be transferred to us. At no stage do we lend you any money. You are also not obliged to rent either your own, or any other vehicle from us. It is entirely your choice if you wish to do so.
What are the requirements to be eligible to use this service?
- You have to own the vehicle and the vehicle must be fully paid off (in other words, you cannot owe any money to a bank or anyone else on the vehicle)
- You will obviously need to provide us with the papers for the car, your identity document, your proof of residence, proof of bank account and some other information.
- Because this is not a loan, there is no affordability assessment.
- There is no credit check as this is not a loan.
- We will need to assess the vehicle for damage and required repairs.
- You need to be in Cape Town.
- The amount you need, needs to be more than R 40 000.
What price will I get for my car?
- Assuming that the vehicle is in a roadworthy condition, you could expect to get the market value (in other words, the value that your car would sell for on the open market).
- The price would be adjusted to: – settle any outstanding fines on the vehicle; and – undertake any repairs which might be necessary to make the vehicle roadworthy.
- There is also an origination fee of R2,500 which is payable by you to the buyer up front, and this is deducted off the purchase price so will not affect your cash flow.
What will the monthly rental amount be?
Our rentals are generally cheaper than if you were to rent a vehicle from a rental company such as Avis or Europcar. The rentals are calculated taking into account the type of vehicle, the age of the vehicle, mileage and the book value of the vehicle. The rental amount will also include: – insurance on the vehicle – tracking costs (the vehicle will be fitted with a tracking device). We would quote you a rental amount before you sign any documents to ensure that you are happy with all of the elements of the sale and/or the rental. We will give you at least one month’s notice of any increase to the monthly rental amount, and this will not happen more than once a year.
Are there any hidden costs?
- You will have to settle all e-tolls, fines, traffic infringements or other penalties charged while you rent the vehicle.
- You will also have to pay the insurance excess if the vehicle is involved in an accident while you are renting it.
- Any costs of operating the vehicle are also for your account – such as fuel, oil, tyres, etc. for the period that you rent the vehicle.
- Administration fees can be levied by us if a payment bounces or if we have to make any payments or do any of the things that you are responsible for under the rental agreement (such as pay your speeding fines, etc.) These amounts are not included in your monthly rental amount and are therefore payable by you as and when they arise.
- If you default under the rental agreement, you will also be liable for our legal costs to enforce the agreement.
How long can I keep my car for?
The rental runs on a month to month basis, and you are not tied into any minimum period. At the end of each month, you can either return the vehicle to us or rent the vehicle for another month by paying the rental for the next month to us.
If I want to buy my car back at the end of the rental period, what would my vehicle cost me?
The vehicle price will again depend on the market value of the vehicle at that time, the condition of the vehicle, the age of the vehicle, etc. You could expect the vehicle to be sold back to you at as close to the market value of the vehicle as possible. The vehicle purchase price will be clearly indicated on the contract. No surprises.
How quickly can I get cash for my car?
Typically within 24-48 hours from the time you bring your vehicle to us for the inspection. If repairs are required to bring the car up to roadworthy standards, a repair consent form will need to be signed in addition to the offer to purchase and lease agreement. The purchase price will be transferred to you and as soon as the vehicle repairs are completed and the lease amount is paid by you, you can DriveAway.
