Can I Buy A Car From Any Dealership?

Tim Carpenter

At CarFinance 247, once your finance has been approved in principle, you’re free to choose a vehicle from any reputable dealership. 

Choosing a car, van, motorbike, caravan or motorhome from a reputable dealer means that youre more likely to have a positive experience due to our stringent checks.  

To make the search for your new wheels even easier, we have our own online used car search, where you can browse over 130,000 vehicles from trusted dealers across the UK. Once you’ve applied online with no impact on your credit score - you can explore our car search to find the right wheels for you.  

What’s a reputable dealership? 

While cars of all ages can develop faults, we work closely with our trusted dealerships so that we can help protect you from encountering problems down the line.  

Why should I buy my car through CarFinance 247? 

Dealerships often offer their own finance packages but one of the advantages of using CarFinance 247 is that we work with a panel of lenders. This means we can look to find car finance for people in a variety of different circumstances. 

Whether you have bad credit, good credit or somewhere-in-between, we'll work to find the best deal for you from our panel of lenders. We can also look to find finance for customers that have been previously refused car finance, whether at a dealership or elsewhere.

Rates from 7.9%: the exact rate you will be offered will be based on your circumstances, subject to status.

Representative example: borrowing £6,500 over 5 years with a representative APR of 9.9%, an annual interest rate of 9.9% (Fixed) and a deposit of £0.00, the amount payable would be £136.44 per month, with a total cost of credit of £1,686.40 and a total amount payable of £8,186.40. 

We look to find the best rate from our panel of lenders and will offer you the best deal that you’re eligible for. We don’t charge a fee for our service, but we do earn a commission. This does not influence the interest rate you’re offered in any way.
