We are a credit broker and a lender. We can introduce you to a limited number of lenders and their finance products. We will provide details of products available, but no advice or recommendation will be made. You must decide whether the finance product is right for you. We do not charge you a fee for our services. Lenders may pay commission to us (either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow) for introducing you to them, this may be calculated in reference to a variable factor such as (but not limited to) the vehicle age, your credit score and the amount you are borrowing. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions.

Well, kept simple, it doesn't leave a mark on your credit score when you submit the form - whether you are accepted for finance or not.

This helps all sorts of people check their eligibility for car finance online without having any negative effects.

Applying for Car Finance FAQ

Important information about applying for car finance at Stoneacre

  • How does filling in your form help me?

    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.

    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 when applying for car finance online.

  • What do I need to apply for car finance?

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

    • 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
    • A valid email address and UK telephone number
    • 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.

  • 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 on your eligibility.

    After your online journey, and if you are eligible for finance, you will then speak with one of our in-house team to take you through the rest of the process.

  • 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.

  • Can someone else apply for car finance for me?

    Unfortunately not - this is 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 own credit score, rather than applying through someone else.
