What is a soft credit search?

If you have a bad credit rating, you might be concerned that applying for car finance could affect your credit score. In most cases, when you apply for finance, this is recorded on your file. That means if you are rejected, future applications will see this rejection and may also reject you.

Here at Creditplus, we conduct a soft credit search. This means that when you apply for a car loan from Creditplus, your credit rating will not be affected. Instead, we take a look at your file and match you with lenders who are likely to approve you. We do not conduct a full credit search until we have presented you with the options available to you. This means you can be sure that you can see what deals are available before going ahead with the process.

Can I still get a low interest rate with bad credit?

When you have a bad credit rating, you are unlikely to have the best rates available to you, particularly those advertised by the big high street lenders. This is because of the adverse credit in your history making you appear to be a risk, even if you have started taking steps to repair your file.

The good news is that you still have options available to you. Creditplus will compare more than 90 lending options when you apply and present them to you. It is then up to you to decide if you want to continue with your application. We will not pressure you into any decision.
