I have a balloon payment on my car of £5500. Can you finance this? My credit rating is Poor

Hi there,

I have a balloon payment on my car (£5,500). Do you provide finance for this? My credit rating is poor. Or if not, can I still apply for car finance? If so, what is your acceptance rate?

Question.

Hi, I'm looking to buy a car for around £5500-6500. I have £3000 deposit to put down (So borrowing around £3k). Would I be able to get finance? I would like it over 12 months. I have a poor credit history according to my report, but no CCJs, not bankrupt or IVAs. I also have a mortgage. Look forward to hearing from you.

Answer.

Hi Tesh, with a large deposit like you have it increases your chances dramatically as poor credit car finance lenders like to see a deposit from the customer. Here at carfinance247 we help people with credit issues and we have many lenders on our panel. Please make an application and we'll see what we can do for you. Edwin

Answer.

Hi Lynn, Well you've come to the right place. We do deal with some lenders who will refinance balloon payments. We would look to purchase the car from you (settling the balloon payment) and resell the vehicle back to you.We specialise in helping people with poor credit histories and our acceptance rate is very high. So please apply and we'll see what we can do for you. Kind Regards, Edwin

Question.

I am due to pay my balloon payment on a BMW116d in 4 weeks time and BMW are unable to help with this. The car is worth £8,500, and the balloon payment is £7,100. Can you help with this finance, and if so, how would I go about proceeding. Thank you

Posted by Mandy Ribekow-Evans on

Answer.

Hi Mandy, we can indeed help. All you need to do is make an application, we'll get you approved and once all documentation has been signed we'll pay off BMW and you'll be able to keep the car and start making new monthly repayments to the lender we get you approved with. We provide no obligation quotes once approved so you don't have to proceed if you aren't happy and we do deal with high street lenders such as Barclays, Santander & Hitachi. Kind Regards, Edwin

Question.

My finance agreement for my BMW 320d 07 plate is coming to an end but my final payment is £5828.

I cant make this payment and BMW won't refinance it as my credit rating is poor. Can you help me keep my car?

Posted by Greg Taylor on

Answer.

Hi Greg, thank you for your question.

We can indeed re-finance your final balloon payment for you and we do also have lenders that help people with bad credit. As long as you are employed and can prove your income (payslips or bank statements) we'll have a very good chance of getting you accepted.

Please make an application asap and once approved we provide a no obligation quote and you can buy a car from any dealer. Kind Regards, Edwin
