Wesbank Private Finance

Wesbank Private Finance

Looking to buy a vehicle from a friend, family member, private individual, or business? You can finance the purchase, just the same as if you were buying from a dealership, with the added peace-of-mind of a technical inspection.


Benefits of WesBank private sale finance

A facilitated sale

We act as the go-between for you and the seller, using our experience and expertise to finalize the sale as quickly, simply, and securely as possible.

Vehicle peace-of-mind

We go beyond the mandatory roadworthy test and ensure that a technical inspection is carried out on the vehicle. The deal only goes ahead if you’re satisfied with the results.

A smoother hand-over

With online contract signing and the roadworthy already over and done with, we help make the vehicle hand-over process smooth and efficient.
