Frequently Asked Questions

Flat Rate refers to the total percent of interest charged based upon the initial loan amount. This doesn’t include the other charges included in the total charge for credit.

Most of the agreements we can finance that will be up to 12 years old at the end of the agreement, but we do have some funders who will consider even older vehicles.

If you’re a student you can still get car finance as you are still likely to have a credit history.
