What our customers say
Money was in my account on the same day I was approved for the loan. Excellent! Wellington , New Zealand
Thre was a system glitch but this was resolved very quickly. New Zealand
highly recommended & have advised family & friends of harmoneys loan services New Zealand
Granted that my credit rating is 1000 and that I have a guaranteed permanent secondary teaching position but I have NEVER experienced or expected anything as smooth as this Harmony process (FYI: I am 57 years old and a property owner of one rental and have gone through many mortgage and loan applications in the last 20 years. I also have an extensive 30-year secondary teaching career alongside this).
Despite my strong credit history, no hire purchases, an $82 000 salary (guaranteed), and a $610 weekly rental income, my regular bank would not loan me the extra $10 000 needed to complete a new sleepout because, in their view, I was reaching beyond a financial ceiling that they would not finance.
It left me in a pretty pickle as I wanted to complete the sleepout in Christchurch before the 2021 academic year so that I could take advantage of the influx of NZ students into the city post-New Year. The conceting and foundation is down already so, really, it is not going to take too much to complete the actual structure.
My regular bank simply did not want to know despite an extremely positive valuation from a registered and accredited valuer.
Getting this loan is actually a kind of miracle for me. The property has been in my family's hands for 45 years but now I am really adding value and getting some good returns on it (I am also not over-leveraged compared to Auckland properties).
All I can say is, THANK YOU Harmony as I don't have to go back to my bank anymore to beg for the funds required.
Can I also add that I am greatly heartened that I can pay the loan back at anytime without any financial penalty. It really is a great deal tbh and I would recommend this lender to anyone out there who is stuck for funds New Zealand
Recommend to all family and friends

Easy to follow instructions.
I compared with other agencies and harmony had the best offer. , New Zealand
Establishment fee of around 3.2% of loan value perhaps a little high, but understandable given non-secured nature of loan.
Well structured convenants within disclosure documentation setting out obligations and also nature of early repayment if undertaken.
Could be beneficial (for decision making by borrower) to include actual cost of borrowing (including fees) calculator as can be utilised on such sites as Interest.co.nz
Good follow up by help-desk operator. Southland, New Zealand

About boat loans
A boat loan is a personal loan that can be used to cover expenses associated with purchasing, owning and maintaining a boat.
This could include the purchase price, repairs, maintenance, storage, accessories and equipment up to the value of your approved loan limit. There are various types of boat loans and it’s important to understand how they work when deciding which type of loan is right for you.
Unsecured boat loan
An unsecured boat loan is a loan which does not require your boat (or another asset) to be offered as security. This means your boat will not be repossessed if you default on your loan or have trouble making payments. Penalties are still charged for late payment, but this is a safer option than a secured loan.
All Harmoney boat loans are unsecured.
Secured boat loan
In the case of a secured boat loan, security (or collateral) is provided on the loan. This can either be the boat itself or another asset. If you default on a secured boat loan, your collateral can be seized by the loan provider.
Secured boat loans are not provided by Harmoney.
Boat sellers will often offer their own finance, much like car dealerships. While these may seem attractive, often offering low-interest rates and other perks, they typically require a deposit and, like a secured loan, will keep the boat as security. Dealer finance often works out to be more expensive than third party loans, especially for those with bad credit.
Fixed and variable loans
There are two types of interest rates you can have on your loan: fixed and variable. A fixed interest rate is one that will stay the same despite outside influences, making it easier to budget and plan for the future. Meanwhile, a variable rate will rise and fall with the economy, making it a riskier option.
At Harmoney, our loans always have fixed rates so you can know in advance what your payments will be throughout your loan term.
