Brilliant people to deal with and quick turnaround. I applied on the Monday had my dream car by Friday as quick as that. Went up by train to collect the car they met me outside the train station as soon as I got there. Car was as mint if not better than on pics. I asked for something specific and they got me exactly what they wanted for my budget. Trust in these people and they will help you out.

I have to say, it's been an amazing experience with dealing with Refused Car Finance. The whole team has done so well through the whole process and even gone the extra mile to address things for me that weren't necessary. Thank you to Jacob, Isaac & Richard and everyone else for all your hard work.

Amazing service from Dan and Ross. Nothing was a problem. Brilliant customer service
