Very Bad Credit Car Finance

The great news here at The Car Loan Centre is that we consider all circumstances. So, if you have poor or bad credit, we can be the solution for you when looking to buy a new car. We specialise in poor to very bad credit car finance, which means if you currently have, or ever had, a CCJ or Default notice, or built up Arrears with a lender, we could still help you. If your income is currently consisting of 100% Benefits payments, we’ll be happy to hear from you. We’re eager to help as many applicants as we can, saying 'YES' to more customers that have been refused elsewhere than most other direct lender car finance companies.

We're proud to be bad credit car finance specialists, who are able to consider applicants for car loans in Essex and around the UK, who have been turned down elsewhere. We know how difficult it is to get approved for a loan when you may have struggled in the past with your finances. Our direct lender car finance works by reviewing your ability to repay the loan amount. In short, if you can demonstrate the affordability, it’s possible to get approved for bad credit car finance on benefits, or car finance with defaults registered to your name. We want you to apply with confidence when looking for car finance through The Car Loan Centre.

Every customer's application is assessed by an underwriter and on an individual basis. This means we do not rely on computer-generated credit scores* to provide you with a decision. We take a personal approach to help you drive away in the vehicle you’ve been looking for. We have 100's of vehicles in stock with nationwide delivery available wherever you are in Great Britian. For peace of mind, we also offer a 6-month warranty with every car, which can help cover you for any unexpected issue if they were to arise. You can extend this to 18, 24 or 30 months depending on what’s best for you and your application term, with all our cars having a valid MOT and Comprehensive inspection. You can rest assured that when it comes to a new vehicle purchase through us, we’ve got your best interests in mind.

Car Finance FAQs

Why Should I Choose The Car Loan Centre for Car Finance?

Quite simply, we offer a different service to most other direct lenders of car loans that you'll find online. Our focus on helping those who may have struggled elsewhere to find car finance, puts us above the rest. No matter if you have bad credit due to Defaults, Arrears or even a CCJ or IVA, we can say 'YES' where many others would say 'NO'. Your credit score* is irrelevant to us, we do however look at your credit history and perform a credit check to support your application and confirm your identity. If you have proven affordability, you should apply today and see what we can do for you.

I've Been Declined Elsewhere for Car Finance; Can You Still Help?

Yes, we certainly can! As long as you are not currently declared bankrupt, we can help you even if you've been recently declined elsewhere. If you have applied for many forms of credit in a short space of time, this may have a negative impact on your credit score*, which could lead to lenders declining you. Alternatively, we focus on what your current affordability is to make our lending decision.

I'm Self-Employed, Does This Mean I Can Still Apply?

If you're self-employed then we’re happy to provide help with car finance. As with a normal application, you'll need to provide the last 3 months' worth of bank statements, so that we can properly assess your current finances. Many other lenders may struggle to approve an application from someone who is self-employed, but not us. Speak to us today to see what we can do for you.
