What can we do to help finance your vehicle?
We can introduce you (whether direct or through a specialist credit broker) to a number of finance companies (“funders”) who may be able to finance your transaction. There are other funders to which we cannot introduce you which may also be able to offer you finance. We will provide you with information and explanations about the finance products that may be available to you and, where we recommend a product to you to you, we will ensure that this is based on the information you give us about your needs and circumstances so that it is suitable for you. Finance is arranged subject to status and terms and conditions. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to secure finance for you.
Can we give independent financial advice?
We are not independent financial advisers and so are unable to provide you with independent financial advice. We are, however, independent of the funders and brokers we work with.
Do you have to pay for our service or do we receive any commission?
You don’t have to pay us for our service. But a funder or broker we work with may pay us for introducing you to them. Different funders/brokers may pay us different amounts but it will typically be based on a fixed percentage of the amount borrowed. This percentage may vary according to different factors, for example: the amount of credit; the age or type of vehicle; the type of finance product; or the funder’s assessment of the risk of lending. For your reassurance, we are not able to change the interest rate you pay in order to receive more commission from a particular broker or funder. Although rates and commissions may vary between our finance partners, our aim is always to secure finance from them which is appropriate to your circumstances. If we are successful in obtaining an offer of finance for you and you would like to know the amount (or likely amount) we would receive if you decided to go ahead with the agreement and how that amount has been calculated, please contact us using the details below
