Historically, acquiring a car finance loan with a bad credit rating was very difficult because it was seen as too risky by lenders. In other words, a lender would not have the confidence of the loan being paid back in full from an individual with a bad credit rating.
However, there are many reasons why someone could find themselves with a bad or poor credit rating and it’s not necessarily the result of bad money management practices or poor financial planning. And even if this was the case we also understand people can learn to improve given the right help and resources – see our help guide ‘How to improve your credit score’, or our ‘Beginners guide’.
At Creditplus we believe everyone should be treated fairly, and because a car is such an integral part to support people's day-to-day living, we believe everyone should have a fair chance of owning one.
As such, we have a specialist panel of lenders who offer a broad selection of loan options that can help you if you find yourself with an adverse, poor or bad credit rating. Furthermore, we will do our very best with our extensive experience to ensure that you find the right financial agreement that works with for you and your individual circumstances.
Submit your details using our online application form. We’ll then run a Soft credit search based on the information you’ve provided but don’t worry – this won’t affect your credit score. You will then receive an instant decision (Terms and conditions apply. Subject to status).
At this stage you don’t need to have already chosen a car or even know how much you’re looking to borrow.
If you find you have been declined this time, don't worry - we have many resources on a website that will help you get you back on track, see our help guide ‘How to improve your credit score’, or our ‘Beginners guide’.
Once your application has been accepted a friendly consultant will be in touch to discuss your requirements and options. Your consultant will be dedicated to support you throughout the process; they will help you with finding your perfect car as well as ensuring you get the fairest financial agreement that suits your individual circumstances.
Rest assured, all of our consultants are fully SAF trained and Creditplus is registered and regulated by the FCA - this means we must treat you fairly and ensure you get an agreement that works for you as an individual.
Once you have discussed and agreed your loan terms and chosen your car with your consultant, you can then simply sit back and let us finalise the deal and process your car.
