What is black box car finance?
You may be more familiar with the term black box car insurance and car finance is similar in the way it is fitted but is used for a different purpose. Black box finance is when a small device is fitted into your chosen vehicle and connects to your car’s internal computer. They can be located discreetly located under the dashboard or in the glove box and communicates with the finance lender through GPRS. There are a number of different types of data that a black box records. However, when it comes to car finance, black boxes don’t track your driving style but instead, help you to keep up to date with your car finance payments. As long as your payments are paid on time and in full each month, there’s nothing you need to do! If you fail to make a payment, the lender will contact you and the car may be taken away from you.

Where is a black box fitted?
If you are approved for used car finance, you will then be able to get the car you want in your budget from a trusted dealer in the UK. You can’t use your finance agreement on a car from a private seller. The finance company will then fit the black box into your chosen car. The box is fitted under the dashboard or can be located in the glove box. Once the payments have been made, the box can be removed, or some lenders allow you to buy the car that you can use as an immobiliser or tracker.
Is it the right option for me?
Black box car finance is a form of hire purchase car finance and good for people who may have struggled in the past with making repayments. The box or your lender gives you a notification a few days before your payment date and remind you to meet the deadline. During HP finance agreements, the loan is secured against the vehicle which means the lender owns the car throughout. Once the agreement has ended and you have made all your repayments, the contract is done, and the car is yours to own.
Can you get black box car finance bad credit?
Black box car finance bad credit can be a way to help get you approved. It shows lenders that you are serious about meeting your repayment deadlines. The loan is secured against the vehicle which means the lender can use the car as collateral if you fail to repay. Customers with bad credit scores can use their car finance deal to help improve their credit score too. One of the best ways to increase your score is to show a good history of making payments on time and in full!

What is pay as you go (PAYG) car finance?
You may have also heard of the term pay as you go car finance. Pay as you go car finance is another term used by lenders when describing black box car finance. It has exactly the same principle where the customer will make monthly repayments through a form of hire purchase till the end of the finance term.
