Personal loan for car purchase

Hi there, I am looking into purchasing a car on finance in the near future. My credit score is around 828 - I rent a house and have direct debits going out of my bank for my credit agreements. I'm not too worried about getting the finance sorted but me and my girlfriend are wanting to get a personal loan soon for around £5k. Would this ruin my changes of getting a car on finance?

Hi Richard, a great question and apologies for the delayed response. Are you thinking of applying for the personal loan and hire purchase at the same time? You seem to have a good credit score so as long as you can prove your income showing that you can afford both loans then i don't see the personal loan as being an issue. What will the personal loan be used for? Also how much are you looking to finance when purchasing your next car and do you have a deposit or a part exchange? 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

Hi Richard, from what you've said we'd be able to help with no problems at all. As long as you're paying the personal loan monthly payments off on time before applying for car finance that'll look good on your credit profile to be honest and shows lenders that you're a "safe bet" when lending large amounts of money too. I look forward to your application in the future. Regards, Rachel

Hi
I'm thinking of a car finance. I would like to spend £6000 because my job now requires me to drive around to visit clients. My credit score is currently 765. What are the options?
