Can I Get Car Finance if I Have Poor Credit?

Hello, I have seen a car in a local garage for £8000, but have poor credit can you help get me approved?

Asked by Kelly Grimes

Hi Kelly, thank you for your question. If you have a poor credit history you've come to the right place. Here at Car Finance 247 we help hundreds of customers on a monthly basis that have past issues obtain car credit. If we get you approved i don't see £8000 as an issue as long as your affordability (worked out from payslips) doesn't cause any problems.

Do you have a deposit at all? Are you on the electoral roll? Do you have any current clean credit? If the answer is yes to those 3 questions this will give us a better chance of getting you accepted.

Lastly, when approved we provide a no obligation quote and you can choose a car from any dealer in the UK. Please make an application when you're ready. Thanks, Rachel
