£6000 for Car finance

Hello, I'm looking to buy a new car around £6000. I have a car at the moment with £1600 finance outstanding. The value of the car is around £2800. I have tried a few companies but have been refused.

I have a poor credit history due to problems last year. Is it worth me trying again or just give up and try again in a few years?

Michelle


Answer

Hi Michelle, £6000 for car finance shouldn't be an issue at all as we specialise in helping those with past credit problems. You say you've been declined elsewhere - can you tell me the companies you've applied with so that i can give you some further advice on whether we'll be able to help?

You also seem to have £1200 equity in your current vehicle which is great news as this can be used as a deposit on a newer car. Please make an application and once approved you can choose a car from any reputable dealer and we also provide a no obligation quote. Kind Regards, Rachel

Hello, I want to get a £6000 loan for a bigger car. I've just finished paying off a five year finance agreement on a car without any missed payments. My credit rating is 953 but I have one default on a car loan from 5 years ago when I was made unemployed. I don't want to apply for finance incase I get refused and it will lower my credit score. I have a deposit of about £1000 and can access savings of about £1000 if I have to get a car for about £7000. Do you think i would get a car loan?

Answer

Hi Jackie, with a credit score of 953 i'm more than confident that we can get you approved for a £6000 car loan. You also have a large deposit which looks good from the lenders point of view. Please apply on our site when you get 5 minutes. Don't worry about being declined as we have many lenders on our panel. I look forward to receiving your application and getting you accepted for car finance.

I earn £140 a week and have sent off my request for finance on a car selling for just over £6000 and will be paying it off over 5 years, I have no bad credit history. Do think I will be approved?

Answer

Hi Rachel, if you have no bad credit then i'm sure you'll be approved and for the £6000 that you need. Do you have any current active credit profiles that you pay on time (credit cards, loans etc) and are you on the electoral roll? Lastly, would you have any form of deposit? Have a great day, Rachel
