I’ve been recommended to your company by a friend of mine Chris who used you to finance his new car so I thought I’d drop you a line to see if you could help me as well. It says on your website that you can help with bad credit car finance and I will probably come under this heading as my credit history is pretty poor. I was made redundant a couple of years ago and it took me a while to find another job which didn’t help as I missed a lot of payments and gained a CCJ from a loan company. I have almost caught up with everything now and have a good job but I am still finding that I am being declined for any kind of credit that I apply for. I only want to borrow about £4000 for a sensible diesel estate car for work and can afford around £200 a month. Please help!

Hi Beth.

Thanks for your email regarding bad credit car finance and thanks to your friend Chris for recommending us!

It sounds like your credit history from a couple of years ago is still haunting you Beth and even though you may of nearly caught up it will still prevent you from obtaining credit from the mainstream lenders.

However there are lenders out there that should be able to help you if you are now back on track. Bad credit car finance lenders may charge a slightly higher APR but they are more understanding when it comes to your credit history.

The typical APR will be around 34% but you will still easily be able to afford to borrow £4000 with a monthly payment of £200, we will just need to work out what the shortest repayment term is available to you.

You may pay more interest this time around but having this credit will be really useful in repairing your credit profile as you will be proving to prospective lenders that you are now ok and they can trust you to repay the loan on time.

So we should be able to help you fund a diesel estate car from a bad credit car finance lender!

Can you complete our online application please and we’ll look out for your application or you can phone us on 0800 066 2888.
