Car finance is a way for you to buy a new or used car by spreading the cost over a period of months. So, instead of having to pay everything upfront, you can split the cost into manageable amounts that are paid in regular monthly instalments.
There are three main types of car finance available through The Car Financer, the most popular of which is Hire Purchase, or HP as it’s more commonly known. The other financing options are Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) and Personal Loans.
If you see the term ‘guaranteed finance’, it’s important to remember that no one can guarantee your application will be successful until they’ve taken your personal details, noted which car you want and checked your credit file. All of these things will make a difference to your likelihood of being accepted or not, so when you see the words ‘guaranteed finance’, it’s usually a good reason to be cautious.
