About DriveAwaySA

While DriveAwaySA doesn't offer loans or car pawning it offers you a safe way to sell your vehicle for cash and still continue driving it.

Drive Away SA developed a safe way for you to do just that and access your cash-flow needs by unlocking the value of the car you own. Helping you out of your cash crisis is what they're passionate about and have been satisfying thousands of clients for years now. 

Selling your car with Drive Away SA

It’s quick, easy, and safe with Drive Away SA. With no credit checks Drive Away SA will purchase your car providing you with instant cash while you can still drive your car by renting it from them for a fee.

They also offer you the great option of buying your car back from them for the price you sold it for. This is a great way of improving your cash flow without having to give up your wheels.

Cashflow contribution

They'll offer you an indicative car sale maximum and minimum based on your vehicle’s current market trade value. Depending on how much cash flow you need you can then choose any cash flow contribution amount between the indicative maximum and minimum amounts.

Remember that this will be the same amount you'll have to buy your car back for. They'll make their final cash flow contribution offer once your vehicle has been inspected and has passed the roadworthy test.

DriveAwaySA Services

DriveAwaySA specializes in purchasing your car from you and then leasing it to you for a monthly fee. They also set up car assessments and roadworthy tests.

Lease period

You may lease your car with them for a year. You're not restricted to any minimum period. The lease is month to month, and at the end of each month, you can either lease the vehicle for another month or purchase your vehicle back.

5 easy steps to unlock your vehicle for cash

  1. Complete the obligation-free online form.
  2. Get a deal offered.
  3. Verification - roadworthy and assessment will be arranged.
  4. Sign the contract and your money is paid out.
  5. Get your car back for the same amount you sold it for.

Once you’ve provided them with your vehicle details by completing the form on their website, they'll then provide you with a maximum and minimum offer and the respective monthly lease amount, within a few hours.

They'll request that you send them some documents and usually, within 24-48 hours from the time you submitted the required documentation, the transaction will be completed. As soon as the contracts are signed the final amount will be transferred to you.
