COVID-19

Carbroker.com.au is still open for business. Your health and our health are important , so we have updated our hygiene policy for everyone’s safety during these uncertain times.

We anticipate that shortly the Government will request all non-essential businesses close their doors for an unknown period. We of course will adhere to whatever is requested to protect the health and wellbeing of ourselves, our clients and the community.

Most of our staff are now working from home and have the capability to operate as normal. All our software and data are located securely online and we are 100% capable of “business as usual” if a full office relocation is required.

To that end, we at Carbroker.com.au have devised a plan to ensure that we can still conduct all business and keep up with all our client’s needs.

We will be offering all clients one-on-one meetings online via either phone / facetime or the Zoom platform. Zoom will allow us to guide you through any meetings / conference in your own home. Should you require assistance with Zoom, please contact us and we will assist you with this setup. (Or any similar type program)

If required, our phones will be redirected to our dedicated mobile. Should you require contact please use the usual numbers 1800 245 227 as well as our dedicated mobile – 0400 094 494.

If you require any assistance at any time, please contact us as normal.


Macquarie

From Friday 20 March 2020, Macquarie is providing a Payment Pause for eligible clients up to 6 months. This applies to all business loan, overdraft, home loan, car loan and credit card clients who are experiencing financial difficulty.

For consumer loans, interest will be accrued during the payment pause period and will be capitalised (along with and arrears) at the end of that period. The loan term will be extended as required to keep the regular repayments same (including any balloons).

Customers will receive a variation letter as soon as it is procesed that confirms the details inclusing the next payment due date, new regular repayment amount and new contract expiry date.

For all other loan products the payments will simply have a pause in the contract, with the paused payments being added at the end. There will be no accrued interest charged.

It will have no negative impact on the clients credit rating.

Customers can make payments during the Payment Pause, which wont affect the Payment Pause arrangement.

Do you need immediate financial relief?

If you’ve been impacted by COVID-19, you can request a payment pause on your Macquarie product(s). To make a request, please complete this online form. Alternatively, customers can email mcafleasingcare@macquarie.com or call 1300 364 050.

To discuss relief measures available and how we can provide ongoing support, you can also contact us using the direct numbers listed below.
