Car Finance on Benefits Cardiff

Car Finance on Benefits Cardiff

Do you need car finance, but your income is made up mainly of benefits? Do not worry we could help you secure the car finance you need.

We know that some lenders may not take your income into consideration and therefore can be difficult to find lenders who will be willing to approve you for a loan. Being on benefits doesn’t mean you can’t get car finance.

We recognise that some people on benefits have a steady income each month and we welcome those people who live in Cardiff and surrounding areas to apply for car finance with us. We are also specialists in bad credit car finance so can also help if you have experienced poor credit and may have a low credit score due to missed payments in the past.

What is Hire Purchase Car Finance?

Hire Purchase is one of the most common types of finance, it is really simple – you hire the vehicle and make fixed monthly repayments until you have paid off all of the agreed finance.

There are no surprises at the end of your agreement such as balloon payments or mileage restrictions.

The entire car price is spread across your agreement term and once all monthly payments have been made the car becomes yours, making it one sensible option for borrowing.
