Are you looking for van finance but finding it hard to find a suitable deal? We're here to help.

At Car Finance 247, we believe in breaking down the barriers to van ownership that crop up for many drivers, making the process of getting a decent van finance deal as easy as possible. 

Rather than choosing your vehicle and then arranging a finance agreement, we've decided to turn the finance industry on its head. Instead, you can make sure you get the right deal before sourcing your van, leaving you safe in the knowledge that you'll be able to find the right loan for your needs.

Of course, finance can never be guaranteed, but we promise we'll do our best to find the perfect van leasing deal from our broad panel of lenders. You'll also be paired with a dedicated account manager, who can help you through the process with ease.

Types of van finance

Looking for a van on finance? You’ve come to the right place.

Whether you’re looking for a commercial van or self-employed and need a vehicle for work, there are several types of van finance available:

  • HP (Hire Purchase) - With Hire Purchase, you hire your van from your lender, owning your vehicle once the monthly payments have been made. You’ll own your van at the end of your agreement, although this can make your monthly installments slightly higher than other forms of finance.

  • PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) - Personal Contract Purchase is slightly different to Hire Purchase. Whilst you’ll still pay a set amount per month, you’ll also have the option of returning your van at the end of your contract. If you’d like to keep your vehicle, you’ll need to pay a balloon payment when your deal terminates.

  • Personal loans - When you take out a personal loan, you borrow a set amount of money against your van. You may not need to pay a deposit, but your monthly payments could change each month depending on the current interest rate. At the moment, we don’t work with lenders that offer personal loans.

Hire Purchase and Personal Contract Purchase tend to be the most popular finance options, although it's important to understand the differences before committing.

Why should I finance my van instead of buying it outright?

There are many reasons why you might want to use a finance company for your new van, rather than paying for it outright. Of course, this is something that will depend largely on your current circumstances. 

However, the most common reasons for taking out a finance deal over purchasing your van include:

  • The cost of your van can be spread out into manageable monthly payments, instead of paying for it all at once
  • If you want to change your vehicle at regular intervals, a finance agreement may be more suitable, allowing you to enjoy a new van every few years
  • When using PCP, there is no commitment to ownership
  • Options for no deposit finance exist, so you may not need to place a down payment at the start of your van leasing period.
  • Using a dedicated finance company like Car Finance 247 can help to make the process much easier, taking the hassle out of your hands

Tips for buying a secondhand van

If you want to buy a used van, there are some things you may need to look out for before committing. If you're purchasing a secondhand vehicle, some wear and tear should be expected, depending on the age of the van.

However, to keep your maintenance bill as low as possible, you should also carry out a thorough inspection of your chosen vehicle. Some garages offer inspection services, so even if you're not mechanically minded, you may be able to hire someone to do the job for you.

However, there are a few things you can check yourself before committing to a van finance deal:

  • Go under the bonnet to check the fluid levels for your windscreen washer fluid, oil, brake fluid and coolant
  • Test drive your preferred vehicle and listen for any unusual noises which could indicate a fault
  • Check the exterior and interior of your vehicle thoroughly, including tyre tread, faulty electrics, paintwork scratches and chips, rust, upholstery rips and other signs of damage.
  • Check the van's previous history. You can view previous MOT information for free online on the government's MOT history webpage. You should also consider checking the previous service history of the vehicle, as well as the number of owners and the V5C registration form.

Whilst these actions won't necessarily ensure your van is risk-free, they will help to reduce the likelihood of a fault occurring after purchase. Find out more by viewing our used car buying checklist.

Once we’ve received your application, we’ll speak to our vast panel of lenders to source the best deal for your needs. We’ll then create an approval in principle, before your account manager contacts you to discuss the next steps. Your account manager will take care of all the admin and paperwork, as well as negotiate with your vehicle dealer on your behalf, making the process as easy as possible.

If you’ve already found the perfect van, we can start work immediately. Otherwise, you can choose from our used vehicle search to find something that suits your needs. Find out more about the van financing process here.

No, you don’t necessarily need to put down a deposit. If you don’t have a lump sum saved or a part-exchange, we can help you find a no deposit van finance option.

At CarFinance 247, we work with lenders than can finance amounts between £2,000 and £100,000.

At CarFinance 247, we can help you find finance for a used van, but we don’t offer finance for brand new vehicles. We work with a panel of lenders and some of them do set requirements on a van’s age or mileage. Typically, they are unable to finance vans that will be more than 14 years old at the end of the agreement and with more 120,000 miles on the clock.

You can apply for finance if you’re over 18 years old and have a minimum of three years’ address history in the UK.

Here at CarFinance 247, we work with a panel of lenders, which means we can help you find finance for a range of different vehicles, including cars, vans, motorbikes, caravans, and taxis.

If you have a van with outstanding finance left to pay, you might be able to get a new one. We work with a panel of lenders and some of them can offer refinancing loans. When you refinance, you’ll take out a new deal and settle your current finance with a one-off payment. Depending on the agreement, this payment could be covered by the new lender or incorporated into your new loan amount.

The paperwork that you’ll need to support your van finance application will depend on the lender that approves you in principle but, in general, they’ll ask to see:

  • Proof of driving licence
  • Proof of income
  • Proof of address

Your account manager will let you know if your lender does need any additional paperwork and can sort all the admin for you.

Depending on the type of borrower you are, financing a van could have either a negative or a positive impact on your credit score. When you take out a new finance agreement, you are technically adding debt to your file, so you may see a drop on your credit report at first.

However, if you manage to keep up with your monthly payments, you may actually improve your credit report, as you can prove to future lenders that you’re able to pay off your debts. This factor works in reverse too - if you fail to keep up with your repayments, your credit score may drop, limiting your finance options in the future.

If you’d like to conduct a free credit check before getting started, please view our dedicated page. You can also find out more about our bad credit finance options here.

This question is tricky to answer, as it’s something that depends largely on your circumstances. However, a deposit of at least 10% is usually considered good, and the more you put down, the lower your monthly repayments will be. A larger deposit could even result in a shorter van finance deal, which may be beneficial if you’d like to change vehicles sooner rather than later.

However, we also offer no deposit van finance, so if you’re not able to put much money down at the moment, we may still be able to help you.

If you have a poor credit score, you may find yourself feeling concerned about your chances of getting a suitable finance agreement. The good news is that at Car Finance 247, we have a broad panel of lenders, some of whom can offer finance deals for people with bad credit.

Whilst we can’t guarantee a deal, there’s no harm in getting a quote. We also offer van finance for people who have previously been refused elsewhere - find out more on our dedicated Refused Car Finance page.

The answer to this question will depend on your own personal circumstances, but for many people, finance is the most suitable option. If you already have the money for your chosen vehicle in the bank, paying for it outright could be cheaper in the long run.

However, if you don’t have the money saved or you’d prefer not to spend it all on your new van, taking out a finance deal could be the ideal solution. If you’re the sort of person who likes driving a different vehicle every few years, you may also find that a finance agreement is more suitable for your needs.
