Our internal system pulls through your Equifax credit score upon application We recommended that you use ClearScore as they are powered by Equifax and then you can see what we see! You should make sure that all the information listed on your credit reports is accurate and up to date. Even have the wrong address can affect your credit score. You can report any inaccuracies to the credit referencing agency who provided your credit report.

Being on the UK electoral roll enables lenders to verify your address and that you are who you say you are. This can help to speed up the approval process and check your identity. It can also have a positive affect on your credit score and it’s important that you keep your information on the electoral roll up to date.

Rebuilding your credit score can take time but making regular on time payments is one of the best ways to help increase your credit score. It shows future lenders that you can be trusted to pay back your car finance.

I had been refused car finance by a main dealer so found this site online and thought I would try it and it turned out to be the best thing I did. Sean who was assigned to me as an agent and he went above and beyond what I expected and he worked so hard to get me the finance I needed at the right rate and price due to my credit rating not being that great and I was able to buy the car I wanted. I cant thank him enough and I will definitely come back to this company when I buy again. thanks again Sean from Scott

Went looking for car finance with no luck from anywhere. Eventually found refused car finance! They were great from start to finish. Sean helped me when we had a bit of a problem, reassured me and never stopped communication. Would highly recommend to anyone!
