Uber driver looking for car finance

Hello Edwin,
I’m an Uber driver currently looking for a new vehicle for work. I have a £2000 deposit, steady income and a clean credit history. I have tried with my local dealer and been rejected for finance because the car is being used as a taxi – is there anything you can do to help? Regards, Mikey

Hi Mikey, thank you for your question

Yes, we do have a few lenders that can help people secure finance if they are using a car for taxi purposes, so we may well be able to help. A £2000 deposit and good credit history will definitely increase your chance of approval – and we will do our very best to find you a lender!

As you are self-employed, you will need to provide proof of income- this can be in the form of a bank statement if you wish. When you apply, you should also make a note of the fact that the car is being used for taxi purposes so we can find you an appropriate lender.

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