Applying for Car Finance FAQ

Important information about applying for car finance!

  • Can I apply for car finance with bad credit?

    Even if you have bad credit, it’s still possible to get car finance as we work with a variety of lenders who specialize in helping people with lower credit scores. 

  • How does filling in your form help me?

    With our finance form being a device to check your eligibility for credit, you can rest assured that whether you’re deemed eligible or not, there won’t be a full search recorded on your credit profile. This is especially good for those who may have a history of poor or bad credit and might be worried about any further damage to their profile.

    Our online car finance form is a springboard for those wanting to quickly get into a new car. Getting acceptance at this stage ensures subsequent processes are straightforward and take as little time as possible.

  • What should I expect after completing your form?

    Regardless of the decision on whether you’re eligible for finance or not, we will be in touch by either phone or email with further information.

    For those who are accepted, we can:

    -Arrange a visit to our dealership to see a car of interest

    -Get the finance in place ahead of your visit

    This is to ensure there is minimum work to be done when in branch to collect your new vehicle.

    If you’ve unfortunately been deemed ineligible for finance at this point, all is not lost. While it might not be possible now, we can offer coaching to improve your credit rating with a plan to get you eligible in the near future.

  • What do I need to apply for car finance?

    You’ll need the following documents to apply for car finance online:

    1.A device to access the form on is required - a phone, laptop, desktop computer or tablet. Our website has been optimised to work across all such devices.

    2.A valid email address and UK telephone number.

    3.A minimum three years’ of address and employment details.

    So, make sure you have to hand the specifics. If you have all that, applying for car finance online should be a simple affair and we look forward to hearing from you.

  • Can someone else apply for car finance for me?

    No, that’s because the person who is applying for car finance is considered to be the main driver and owner of the car. It’s considered risky by lenders and known as an ‘accommodation deal’ if you try and get finance for someone else. So for example, if two people live at the same address, lenders see it and connect the dots. It is better to try and improve your credit score, rather than applying through someone else. 

  • How long does it take to apply for car finance?

    When applying online through our finance form, it only takes few minutes and you’ll also get an instant decision.
