Our open and transparent finance offering puts your financial background in control of the finance terms that we are able to offer you, putting you in the driving seat.
By completing a 'soft search' against your credit profile, using as little as 5 pieces of information, we can understand quickly the most appropriate packages we can offer you -giving us more time to find the perfect used car for you and your budget.
Please note we do not carry out this procedure on the following brands: Aston Martin. Rolls Royce, Bentley and Lamborghini.
Here are some of the questions we’re frequently asked:
Once you’ve completed a soft search, am I committed to buying the car?
Not at all, the soft search gives us an indication of your credit profile. The search won’t be visible to any finance company as it doesn’t leave a ‘footprint’ on your profile.. we personalise the finance package to match your financial background.
What if I have had poor credit history, can I still buy a car on finance?
With a soft search, we can get an understanding of which Finance Companies are likely to offer you credit based on your background. This means the need to complete multiple credit searches is removed, minimising any damage to your credit profile.
What information will you need from me to obtain a soft search?
We need very little information. Generally speaking, we will need your name, date of birth, occupation details, your address and how long you’ve lived there. We can get the score in less than 60 seconds.
Can I have a Hire Purchase or Personal Contract Purchase agreement?
Absolutely! Our aim is to find the package that suits how you want to fund your vehicle on either of the agreement types. For an introduction to both finance products see click hire purchase or personal contract purchase.
Will the soft search tell me how much I will pay every month?
Our team will work with you to find your next car based on your needs, requirements and your budget. The best way to work this out is to use our used car online finance calculator on the detail page of every used car.
I already know what car I want, and how much my monthly budget is. Do I still need to complete a soft search?
Completing a soft search will allow us to create an accurate and personalised quote, helping you to make an informed decision on your next car.
Which car finance option best suits your circumstances and requirements?
There are a number of flexible options available to help you finance your next car. Perhaps the most popular option that may be right for you is the Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) plan. If you choose PCP car finance, your purchase plan is approved and supported by one of our accredited finance providers. After the agreement is signed it is your responsibility to fully meet the agreed monthly payments for the duration of the agreement. A figure of your car's value will be deferred until the end of the agreement - called the Guaranteed Future Value (GFMV) - which is the minimum value that we can guarantee your vehicle will be worth. At the end of your agreement, you will be presented with three options: part-exchange the vehicle for a new car, pay the optional final payment (the GFMV) and retain the car or return your car with no further payments (subject to terms and conditions as set out when you signed your agreement).
Personal Contract Hire (PCH) works in a similar way to PCP, the major difference is that your ownership of the vehicle would not be assumed at the end of the agreement period. Instead, at the end of the agreement the car would be handed back. At that point another vehicle could then be chosen under the same scheme (subject to status and credit checks).
Alternatively you may opt to buy your car through Hire Purchase (HP). After payment of an initial deposit you then pay the remainder of the value of the car in monthly instalments over a period of between one and five years depending on the agreement and deposit value. In simple terms, you are hiring the car until you make your final payment after which you will own it.
Finally you may choose to pay with a Personal Loan. This is a common way for people to buy a car on finance. Personal loans can be taken from almost all banks and building societies or finance companies. The terms and duration of the payment of the loan can vary depending on what you agree beforehand with the loan company - watch the small print! Loans from banks for cars can be paid off over a number of years, and will almost certainly have a fixed rate of interest.
