How do I pay out my loan agreement with BMW Motorrad Financial Services?

You can obtain a payout quote twenty four hours a day, seven days a week through mybmwaccount.com.au, or by calling 133 269 between 8.30am and 5.30pm (EST) Monday to Friday and following the prompts. You can also obtain a payout quote via the BMW One App through the My Finance tab.

Payments can be made via BPAY and Bank Transfer to finalise your loan agreement. These payment details will be set out on your payout quote.

Will my credit file be affected because I have applied for hardship

Applying for, and receiving hardship assistance from BMW Motorrad Financial Services does not impact your credit file with credit reporting agencies.  However, if you fail to make required payments or fall into arrears on your finance contract, this may lead to a negative impact on your credit file.

Will interest continue to accrue while I am in hardship?

For consumer loan customers, the rate of interest charged to your account will not change if your instalments are deferred or reduced. The interest will continue to accrue and will be capitalised and added to the remaining balance to be paid over the remaining term of the loan.

For commercial loan customers, please contact us if you are having trouble meeting the obligations under your finance contract as there may be consequences from any default.

What happens if I can’t afford my first monthly instalment after my hardship arrangement has completed?

Hardship measures are only short term solutions to assist with unexpected events and help you get back on track.

If your situation is prolonged, keeping your motorcycle may not be the best financial option for you. As the motorcycle depreciates in value, it may leave you with a large gap between the motorcycle value and what is owing on the loan.

If your hardship arrangement has completed and you are still unable to meet your obligation to BMW Motorrad Financial Services, please contact the Hardship Team on 1800 333 636 between 8.30am and 5.30pm (EST) Monday to Friday to discuss options available to you, such as selling or voluntarily surrendering your vehicle.

Will I fall in arrears if I cannot make instalments?

Failure to meet your instalments will put your loan agreement into arrears and may result in collections activity and a negative impact on your credit file.

If you find yourself in this position, please contact the Customer Support team on 133 BMW (133 269) between 8.30am and 5.30pm (EST) Monday to Friday to discuss options available to you.
