Why would I choose car subscription over getting a loan to buy a car?

Apex Subscribe provides quick and easy access to late model vehicles and removes the hassle of vehicle registration and motor vehicle insurance. In addition, you get free vehicle servicing, so your car is always ready to go.

Getting a loan is not a simple process. You will need to complete application forms and accept the credit terms, pay interest on the money you borrow, and potentially take out additional insurance. You will also be locked in for a fixed term and have a depreciating asset value.

How does Apex Subscribe compare to a lease?

The term of a car lease typically locks you in for up to four years and depending on the structure, you still have to pay for maintenance of the vehicle. They typically include low kilometre limits and heavy reconditioning charges at the end of the lease. Vehicle leases may also have large penalties for breaking the contract or early returns.

Apex Subscribe provides you with a simple and flexible solution to suit your needs.
