RAC Approved Dealer

rac approved dealer creditplusWe're pleased to announce we're an RAC Approved Dealer. What does this mean? Well, every car that we supply now comes complete with an RAC Approved Preparation Check, to increase peace of mind about the car you've financed through us. Read on for more about how being an RAC Approved Dealer helps our customers.

Confidence that the car you purchased is ready for the road

Here at Creditplus, our Find, Fund & Deliver service helps our customers find their perfect car. We already have a dedicated Pre-Delivery Inspection Centre where all cars we supply undergo a thorough inspection, clean and valet before delivery. Cars today are more than just an engine on wheels, with onboard computers and systems designed to keep a car running smoothly. It's not so easy to look under the bonnet and check how a car is running. That's why we have become an RAC Approved Dealer to provide more peace of mind for our customers.
