If you know your credit score, you can use our car finance calculator to give you an estimate of the total cost of your credit agreement on your new vehicle.
Car finance is a method of buying a car while spreading the payments. It gives you access to a vehicle you may not otherwise be able to afford upfront. It’s a simple process; get approved for finance, pick your car and state you contract length; then we’ll take care of the rest!What is car finance and how does it work
Yes, even if you have bad credit, you may still be able to get car finance. We work with lenders who specialise in helping those with less than perfect credit. However, if you’ve recently been refused credit, it may be worth looking at other options.How to qualify for a car loan with bad credit
Yes, it is possible to get car finance with an IVA or CCJ, but we can’t guarantee anything. We work with specialist lenders who help people from diverse credit backgrounds. It’s easy to find out if you’ll be approved without it affecting your credit score.Can I get car finance with an IVA or CCJ?
Yes, you can part-exchange your current vehicle when applying for a finance agreement on a car or van. We accept all part exchanges. You can see how part-exchange works using our guide.What is part exchange?
No, you don’t need to make a deposit on any of our vehicles. While a deposit can be useful and will lower your monthly payments, it’s not a requirement, and we work with several lenders who don’t require one. You will have to pay £49.99 to reserve your car, which is a separate fee.Learn more about no deposit car finance
To apply for car finance, you have a couple of options. You can either submit an enquiry on a vehicle and go through the application with your account manager or get approved online in minutes by using our quick and simple Apply Now feature. Neither will harm your credit score, and once approved, if you provide all your paperwork on time, and the lender is happy, it should only take a few days to get your finance in place.Get preapproved with no impact on your credit score

I made my initial enquiry not thinking I would even be accepted for credit - with a default on my file from years ago.
James was friendly and not pushy at all. He managed to secure me a deal at 12% interest, which is almost as good as a normal credit deal.
James listened to the fact I wanted to keep my costs down, and he was very patient asking every single little question - back and forth by email, finding out all the details for me.View our Trustpilot reviews

We endeavour to inform our customers (where possible) the provenance of the vehicle they are buying and as such we will always inform you if the vehicle has previously been either an ex fleet or hire car. Should your vehicle be an ex hire/fleet car please do not be concerned as we would never value this vehicle differently when you come to part exchange it and there is no difference to the CAP valuation either.
