Borro offers Luxury Asset Term Loans from £100,000 to £5,000,000.
Luxury Asset Term Loans are offered for 1 to 24 months.
Borro has an in-house team of valuers certified by organisations such as Gemmological Association of Great Britain, The National Association of Jewellers and the Gemological Institute of America.
Our valuers maintain an international network of qualified appraisers, specialists, and dealers to ensure Borro reaches the most accurate market value possible.
"Market value" is the amount of money that you could expect to receive from selling your luxury asset(s) today. This is often different from the "retail value" that may be provided elsewhere.
The "retail value" of a luxury asset is almost always a higher value than the current "market value" as "retail value" factors in the costs incurred in marketing, storing, and selling the asset to you.
Luxury assets tend to depreciate compared with their retail value unless they are very rare.
Luxury Asset Term Loans cannot be extended ("renewed"). When your loan agreement ends you may have your asset valued and request a new loan based on the updated value.
Up until your loan agreement is accepted you have complete flexibility.
Accepted loan agreements may be cancelled up to 14 days after they are signed. Simply send us an email or call us. Fees incurred will be refunded in full. You only pay pro-rata interest (calculated daily) up until the day Borro receives notification.
Once the loan agreement is accepted we can deposit the loan funds immediately via bank transfer.
Borro accepts bank transfers, cheques and debit card payments. Some payment methods process faster than others, so it is important that you understand the processing time required for the payment method that you choose to use. Payment must come from an account in the account holders name. Payment from business accounts or third parties will not be accepted.
Borro can arrange for a courier to collect assets such as luxury watches and jewellery as well as smaller works of fine art and antiques. Alternatively, you may book an appointment to meet our valuers at our offices.
For larger works of fine art and antiques or luxury and classic cars we will arrange specialised transportation via one of our partners.
For important pieces or assets in specialised storage we can arrange an on location visit by our valuers.
When you visit us, you will be greeted by your account manager and one of our valuers. Based on the valuer's assessment of your assets you will receive a loan offer.
Your account manager will then set up your Borro account if you haven't done so already, explain your loan agreement and you can receive your loan funding the very same day via a bank transfer.
You can book an appointment either by calling us at 0808 163 9537 or on our website. Borro recommends booking an appointment in advance of your arrival however you are welcome to visit our offices for a walk-in appointment if you are near one of our offices.
All luxury assets are stored under highly-secure conditions with Borro's storage partners. Each partner offers specialised, state-of-the-art storage options so Borro can ensure assets are well taken care of until they are returned to you.
A Luxury Asset Term Loan is a long-term financial product. A Luxury Asset Term Loan contract can provide a contract up to 24 months, provided the loan amount is greater than £100k. Luxury Asset Term Loans cannot be renewed.
A Luxury Asset Bridging Loan is not a long-term financial product. A Bridging loan is written in a 6-month contract and you can request an extension ("renewal") if needed.
Your loan can be redeemed at any time, either online or with our Accounts team. You may come to our offices to receive your assets or Borro can arrange to have them returned to you.
Please call our Accounts Team on 0203 131 5040 to arrange your redemption. Please be aware that all redemption appointments must be booked in advance.
Please contact a member of our Accounts Team on 0203 131 5040 to discuss this further.
Your assets are returned to your address in the same way they were brought to Borro for valuation after our Accounts Team have confirmed the return details with you.

To offer the highest level of security for your assets Borro does not arrange delivery to any address other than the address listed on your account.
If you have changed address since you took out your loan, you can update your address by sending a copy of a utility bill or bank statement to email@example.com along with a covering email explaining that you wish to update your address. Please ensure that this is dated within the last 3 months of the date of sending. This will be updated online within 24 hours. If the address is not updated, please call our Accounts Team on 0203 131 5040.
If it is not convenient for the assets to be delivered to your residential address we can arrange an appointment for you to come and collect the assets from our offices in central London. To arrange an appointment email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our Accounts Team on 0203 131 5040.Please be advised we will require photo ID in the form of a passport or driving license for redemption.
From within your My Account Area you can update your account details, keep track of your loan statements, make secure payments for interest, redemption or extension of your account, view all of the assets currently under contract and apply for new loans.
Simply visit the sign in page and you can log in or create a Borro account.
Simply visit the forgot password page and you can reset your Borro account password.
If you are not in a position to repay your loan, you may wish to extend your loan.
To extend your loan, you will need to make a payment of the outstanding interest on your account plus an administration fee, from there you accept a Renewal Contract. You are able to renew your loan from within your online account.
If you do not extend or redeem your loan, it will expire and become overdue. At this point the assets used to secure your loan will be eligible to be sold to recover the amount owed to us. The assets may be sold either by public auction or by private treaty sale.
You will be notified by letter of the earliest date that your assets will be sold. You will be able to make a payment to extend or repay your loan up until the date specified in the notification letter.
The sale of your assets is a last resort and we always aim to prevent the sale of your items. Please speak to a member of our accounts team to discuss how to manage your loan payments.
