Who We Are

Hippo Finance was set up as part of the Hippo Motor Group in 2007. We have always had the main objectives of fantastic customer service as well as quality products whether it be a car and finance package or simply the finance that gets you into your new vehicle.

As a family the Preston’s have been in the motor trade since the 1960’s so they know exactly what it takes to create a successful business based on the main ethos of customer service. Working with the biggest and most established lenders on the market we are able to couple fantastic service with competitive packages to keep our customers happy and returning further down the line for the right reasons.

After trading in the North West since 1906 as coal merchants the Preston family chose to take a different direction and entered the motor trade. After successfully running a Bedford car franchise they were then offered, and accepted, franchises from global manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Land Rover, BMW and Mini.

In 2007 the Hippo Group brand was born and Hippo Finance was created. Since the start of Hippo Group we have grown quickly and we believe that is down to our reputation for quick and helpful advice each step of the way.

What makes us different to most car finance providers is that we are a family run business with the capacity to provide you with an agreement to get your dream car on the road. With access to the best deals on the market and a real person on the end of the phone whenever you need us, you can be sure that we will be able to help no matter how big or small your queries are.

All offers are subject to change at any time, you must be 18 or over and finance is subject to status, vehicle availability and terms and conditions apply. We can introduce you to a limited number of finance companies, a commission may be received. Failure to maintain payments may result in termination of your agreement and the vehicle being returned, this could affect your credit rating and make it more difficult to obtain credit in the future. All prices correct at time of publication.

We purchase a wide variety of vehicles from all over the country to ensure the best quality and value for our customers, all of our cars go through a thorough inspection process and if they do not meet our standards we do not sell them. 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.

You should try and estimate the distance you will travel as accurately as possible to try and avoid excess mileage charges at the end of your contract.
