Get a settlement figure. This is the amount you continue to owe on the sum you have borrowed – plus interest. You can request a settlement figure by calling our customer service team on 01925 696 370.
Get a valuation for your car. We would advise you take into consideration age and mileage of your car and also any damage that may be on the vehicle. Does the valuation cover the settlement figure amount? If it does, we would recommend that you apply for finance with us. If the settlement amount is larger than the car valuation, we would recommend you make a few more payments until the values are equal.
