What is a moving loan?


A moving loan (also known as a relocation loan) is an unsecured personal loan designed to help you finance your moving costs.

Moving loans are paid back in installments, or regular monthly payments, depending on the size of the loan. Upstart offers three and five year loans terms. The payment amount remains the same through the life of the loan, provided you pay as contracted and don’t accrue any additional fees or penalties. The average relocation loan from Upstart is $6,581. Loans can be as small as $1,000 or as large as $50,000 depending on the amount you are qualified for.§

Why don't I just use my credit cards?


While credit cards might be an easy choice, they lack the predictability of a personal moving loan. A moving loan has a fixed rate and a steady monthly payment amount. Depending on your personal financial situation, your moving loan may have a lower APR or fees than your credit cards.
