Values of honesty and integrity

Our reputation of honesty and integrity is what makes us a reputable and preferred vehicle finance company in the UK. Our target market is those with bad credit seeking car or other vehicle type insurance. We pride ourselves on serving our market with the highest level of service and professionalism.

The continuous success of our business saw us move in to our new office premises in December 2008. Our wealth of industry experience, our values and work ethic is what we are known for, and proud of. Our own unique approach to how we do business is what sets us apart from our competitors.

Our customers are important

Each loan application is handled personally by an experienced underwriter that knows that our customers are treated as individuals, with different requirements and situations. We adopt a more personal approach to each car loan application, and thus we do not rely on a computer to do so.

Personalised finance package

Should your car loan application be approved, you will receive a personalised finance package, which suits your individual circumstances and budget. The method we used has worked for 20 years, and it the same method our customers have come to trust and prefer. And it is the reason why we keep things the same when it comes to approving car loans.

Deposit required

We do require that you pay a deposit of a minimum of 5%. The amount will depend on different aspects such as the customer profile, age of vehicle, value of the vehicle and mileage, and the individual’s application and its merits.
