Many people who take out car finance don’t realise that using a car finance broker can be the best way to sort your finance! It’s still a common misconception that you can only get car finance from a dealership. However, using a car finance broker and sorting your finance deal first can save you time, money and get the best deal from a range of lenders!
What is a car finance broker?
A car finance broker like Refused Car Finance, is typically a ‘middle-man’ between the lender and the customer. The Oxford Dictionary definition of a broker is ‘a person who buys and sells things for other people’, which is exactly what Refused Car Finance do! A car finance broker sorts your finance with the lending company on your behalf, so you don’t have to! They fight for the best deal possible and do all the leg work for you. Car finance brokers often deal with many lenders and have trusted relationships so you can be guaranteed that you’ll be matched up with a reputable lender. Brokers help you arrange your car loan, but they don’t provide the money themselves, this will come from the finance lender. The lender will be the one who takes your monthly payments from you and who you will sign your agreement with.
Why should you use a car finance broker?
Compare a huge range of lenders
The best thing about using a car finance lender is that they have a wide lending panel and can compare all lenders for you within minutes! Every customer is different and individual circumstances need different lenders so you can be assured you get the best deal for you! Not all lenders can provide specialist finance, so having a range of lenders who have different criteria and acceptances, can be really beneficial. From bad credit to provisional licences, there will more than likely be a perfect lender for you!
Fast and easy service
Many people still believe that finance at a dealership is quicker than sorting your finance first.

No affect to your credit score
