Even without the risk of being infected by COVID-19, getting your own car is not an easy process. It’s nice having the convenience to choose from the vast range of choices in the market today. But when you’ve settled on one, that’s usually when the fun ends and the serious decision-making begins, such as having to check your finances if you can afford your car of choice.
Getting a car isn't just about the thrill of choosing the best or the flashiest
There’s also the matter of the documents that you will need to accomplish and present to the bank or lending institution if you plan to avail of a car loan. These documents will be inconvenient to carry around, plus the risk of being misplaced or damaged during handling, thus jeopardizing your chances of getting your very own ride.
Fortunately, Maybank has addressed these transaction pitfalls with the ease of technology. Narrowing down your choices of which car to buy is now as easy as visiting dealer websites and downloading brochures. Nowadays, almost all banks are riding on the digital wave, with forms that can be accomplished either online, or via downloaded version. All the required documents can thus be scanned and then submitted online, ensuring that the original copies stay safe within your hands.
Maybank Zone works in partnership with Maybank Auto Loan for a convenient way to secure funds
If you are ready to take that first step to owning a car, Maybank has got you covered. Prior to the pandemic even happening, it already embarked on a digital transformation as early as 2016, with the Maybank PH app. In 2018, it launched iSave, the first fully online deposit account. Now, there is Maybank Zone, a one-stop site that moves the car buying experience online – from choosing a car, to applying for a Maybank Auto Loan, so you can be one step closer to driving your dream ride!
The Maybank Zone website features a virtual car showroom where visitors can search their preferred models by body type (sedan, crossover, SUV) and price range. Each vehicle has its own digital brochure complete with the model’s description and specifications, as well as an online loan calculator.
The virtual showroom features models from 12 of the country's leading car brands
When a selection has been made, just click on the auto loan application button and provide the requested information. Documentary requirements can be uploaded through the site so Maybank can immediately start evaluating your auto loan application. An Auto Loan Officer will be assigned to your application and serve as the point of contact for inquiries, follow-ups, dealer promos, and any requested changes to the loan terms.
If your auto loan application is approved, you can schedule a visit to the nearest Maybank branch or Lending Center to sign the loan documents and finalize the transaction.
The website showcases the full model line-up of 12 of the country’s major car brands, with more to be added soon. One of these top brands is Mitsubishi Motors, which currently has an ongoing promo offering special discounts for loan applications made through Maybank Zone. This special offer is valid for auto loan applications received from June 1 to 30, 2021 and availed on or before July 31, 2021.*
