If you have struggled to receive car finance from other lenders, or feel your current credit status could lower your chances, then Carplus may be able to help. Our bad credit finance deals could be the answer you are looking for, putting you back in the driving seat of your finances.
While most people have a credit score, not everyone is aware of what it means and how it can affect their credit applications.
You credit score relates to your credit report, which is a record of your financial history. In most cases this will include credit information collected over the past 7 years, after which negative information will disappear. Records of bankruptcy can remain on the file for up to 10 years.
The report allows lenders to assess if you are in a position to repay any loans or credits applied for. Any missed credit payments or defaults in the past could lower your score and can affect your chances of securing more in the future, even with a different company.
Everyone has the legal right to check their own credit score. Before applying for credit you should be aware of your current score, as a failed application for credit with any company will be recorded and can negatively impact your rating and lower your chances of securing future loans.
At Carplus we understand that everyone has a different credit history. That’s why
That includes whether you have an Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA), County Court Judgement (CCJ), have previously been declared bankrupt, or are self-employed.
We believe everyone deserves fair and unbiased judgement, so no matter your credit history we’ll assess every case on its own merits, based on your individual circumstances.
Credit checks are carried out by lenders to ensure you are the right financial fit to borrow the money needed for the car. If you have no credit history, it can prove difficult to check your suitability.
However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get a car loan without a credit history. We may be able to help you find the right deal to suit you – you can always rely on the Carplus team to do all it can to find a solution that works for you.
Not all of our lenders require a deposit to secure a deal. Simply let us know during the application process we’ll put you in contact with the most suitable lenders.
Applying for bad credit car finance with Carplus couldn’t be easier:
Two common ways used by customers to improve their chances of securing car finance is either through offering a higher deposit, or by using a guarantor.
Most customers will be required to put down a deposit to hire a car. The better your credit score, the lower the deposit required. However, the opposite is true if you have a bad credit rating. If you have bad credit and are in a position to offer a higher deposit without affecting your finances, it could convince the lender you are able to afford the repayments without defaulting.
Alternatively, you could apply for a car loan using a guarantor. This involves asking someone financially reliable to provide full economic support in the event that you are not able to keep up payments.
They will take over the full debt and will be required to meet the monthly instalments on your behalf. From a lender’s point of view this lowers the risk as they have assurances that the money will be repaid in full. The guarantor needs to be financially secure and will also be required to undergo a credit and affordability check before they can be approved.
We understand that life is complicated and not everything goes to plan. That also applies to people’s finances, which means sometimes they need a helping hand.
Cars play a vital role in the daily lives of tens of millions of people and limited access to a vehicle can affect them in all sorts of ways.
That’s why we are committed to connecting them with our established panel of lenders to see if we can find the right deal that matches their situation. It’s a bespoke service tailored to each person’s lifestyle, giving them the best possible chance of finding an affordable package that won’t break the bank.
To ensure that taking out bad credit car finance is right for you, our panel of lenders require a few simple documents to get things started. Requirements will vary depending on the lender, but in general they will usually ask for:
Depending on the lender you want to apply to, they will let you know the type of documents and format they need to be provided in.
