Are you looking to finance a new car but not sure you’ll be accepted? Have you got CCJs, defaults or arrears?
If this is the issue, you may be looking for ‘no credit check car finance’ when browsing finance companies that would be suitable for you.
While credit checks are required, they shouldn’t worry you. We understand that it isn’t always easy to maintain a perfect credit history. We decided to develop Go Car Credit as we understand anyone could have problems getting credit via traditional banks. The primary focus is ethical and responsible lending and treating customers fairly.
We specialise in helping people who may have bad credit and finding it hard to get car finance. So, if you’ve been refused finance in the past or have missed payments on your credit report, we may still be able to find a finance plan that suits you.
No two customers are the same, so only after reviewing your personal circumstances can a lender make a decision as to whether they can lend to you.
Your credit history will also impact the rate you get offered. If you have a history of reliable borrowing, you may find you are eligible for a lower rate than somebody with missed payments on their file.
Your credit history is constantly added to, so if you do have a history of missed payments or CCJs, you can work on this by starting to make payments on time on your current credit commitments. Any effort done on trying to improve your credit score could possibly lead to lower rates offered and open you up to more finance options in the future.
Go Car Credit do carry out a credit check on every new application. This is not just for our benefit but for yours too. As an ethical and responsible lender, we must ensure that the finance plan we are offering our customers is affordable and suitable to your current circumstances.
Our customers are never judged solely on their credit history. Instead, decisions are based on a blend of science and human judgement to understand whether the repayment schedule will be manageable for the customer.
Majority of applications we receive are reviewed by the employees themselves and not just a computer program. This approach allows us to consider any extenuating circumstances such as a poor credit history, self-employment or income from benefits. We view our customers as individuals, not just a number.
We would suggest that even before you apply for car finance, you should research how likely you are to get the loan. Checking your credit report can let you know if there are any recent issues that may be a problem for lenders, and also give you the chance to update any missing information that may be on your profile.
If you apply for finance and are rejected, then you may need to pinpoint and address any issues with your credit history. Make sure you are registered on the electoral roll, so that lenders can confirm your identity, and pay off outstanding debts if you are able to.
In the UK, companies called ‘credit reference agencies’ (CRAs) collect information on how well you manage credit and make your payments.
The three main CRAs are:
Each of them holds a file on you, called a credit report (or credit file), although the information might differ between CRAs.
