Is buying a car from a dealership the best option?

By: james.dwyer     Approved by the Car Finance Advisory Board

Buying a car from a reputable dealership is one of the options available to you when buying a car. Here at Creditplus we're happy to provide finance for you if you would like to purchase a car through a dealership, but this isn't your only option.

We also provide what we call an 'armchair service'. This is where you can ask us to use our experience to find you a new car. We have a dedicated Vehicle Buying and Logistical team that have built superb relationships with the best car sources in the UK. This allows us to find you high quality vehicles very quickly, meaning that you don't have to spend your time scouring the internet looking for vehicles.

Whether you choose to use a car dealer directly, or if you want to take advantage of our car buying service, we'll be happy to help.

In the following section we answer more frequently asked questions about car dealer finance.

Can I get car finance with Creditplus if I haven’t dealt with the dealer before?

Yes. All you need to do is come to us directly, and we'll arrange the finance for you, paying the cash directly to the dealer.

Can I get a better deal with Creditplus car finance than the car dealer finance?

Yes. Dealers are often limited to offering finance from just a handful of providers, meaning that in many cases, we can offer a better rate than standard car dealer finance. By using Creditplus you'll have access to all of the major car finance providers in the UK. We'll compare the market to ensure that we find you the best deal for your circumstances.

You'll also be assigned your own Customer Advisor who'll help you through the whole process, answering any questions that you have about car finance.
