Historic Credit Issues? We can help...

What does poor credit history mean for car finance?

If you have a poor credit history and are looking to purchase a new or used car, you may think that you are unable to obtain a finance plan. This isn't always the case, however, the terms you are offered are likely to differ from those with a good credit score.

A lower credit score means that there is a perceived higher risk that you will be unable to keep up with payments. Therefore, there will be a higher APR amount and there is likely to be a larger deposit required. This is just to ensure that your creditor has some form of financial security.

Opportunity to build

Opting for a finance agreement with a poor credit score is a good opportunity to rebuild your score, meaning in the future you will be able to purchase vehicles with better terms.
