    • Formal valuation is required for all truck (heavy or light), trailer, bus, minibus, construction equipment, agricultural equipment, forklift or access equipment,
    • If you are buying a car, ute, or van, we will only need a formal valuation if
      • the loan amount is higher than the “Private Price Guide” range stated for the same* vehicle on redbook.com.au, or
      • the vehicle’s odometer reading is higher than the range stated for the same* vehicle on redbook.com.au, or

    • If a formal valuation is required:
      • We’ll let you know after the online application is conditionally approved
      • We’ll provide you with quotes from at least 2 asset valuation firms. Or, if you prefer, we can give you a list of our panel valuation firms for you to contact directly for valuation quotes. Please let us know if you want to do this.
      • You’ll need to pay for the valuation before we can prepare your contract
  • If you are buying a car, ute or van that doesn’t require a formal valuation:
    • We will arrange an inspection of the vehicle by a NAB staff member
    • We only need to do this if you are buying a car, ute or van that does not require a formal valuation
    • We don’t need to do this if the vehicle or equipment is being valued by an asset valuation firm on our approved panel
    • There is no cost for the inspection
    • We will arrange this directly with the private seller, and may need them to drive the vehicle to a NAB branch
      • As part of the sale, NAB will run a Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) search
    • The search will need to show there is no finance currently over the asset that you are buying. We will discuss this with you after you’ve been conditionally approved and before we send you the contract to sign.

*The same vehicle means that the vehicle identified on redbook.com.au research matches your vehicle’s manufacture year, compliance year, make, model, badge, series, body type, transmission, fuel type, number of seats and number of doors
