I'm doing an apprenticeship, can I finance a car that's £3500?

Hi Edwin,

I'm doing an apprenticeship in construction , I'm 19, and I'm earning approx £10,000 a year. I have a phone contract that I pay on time every month. Is there anything else I could do that would help me get finance? Do you think I would be eligible? Thanks.

Hi Jamie, thank you for your question.

You have a regular income, which will help us to find you an approval.

As you are an apprentice, there is a good chance that we would need a guarantor from you, if so the guarantor must have lived in the UK for 3+ years, be a home owner or private tenant, and have excellent credit, do you know anyone who would help you if we requested this?

By the sounds of things, you do have a little bit of active credit, which is good. Any additional current active credit that is paid on time would strengthen your application further. Are you on the electoral roll? This would certainly help.

Please make an application when you're ready and if approved you can choose a car from any reputable dealer and we also provide a no obligation quote. Kind Regards, Edwin
