Recently we had a sponsored post on Facebook offering finance to our customer base. In the advert we made sure to include that we accept customers on benefit only incomes, with CCJ’s/Defaults or who have previous arrears. One person commented something to the effect of ‘if they are on benefit’s then how on earth can they afford a car on finance?’ – this is ignorant on nearly every level in our eyes and we will go on to explain why.
We think that in today’s age when people hear ‘benefit only’ they think the worst. What is important to remember is that some people are incapacitated and unable to work due to disability. For these people a benefit only income is the only option – so does this mean that they do not deserve to have a nice car? Some people obviously think so – however the staff at Refused Car Finance do not.
It is because of our passion to help people obtain finance were nobody else will that we are currently one of the UK’s leading car finance brokers. We work with over 20 lenders and are growing exponentially in the car finance industry.

Guaranteed Car Finance on Benefits
You are never guaranteed any form of finance, when looking for car finance on benefits that is no different. We do help customers with bad credit car finance – over 98% of our customers infact. This includes customers on benefit only incomes and who had been refused car credit elsewhere. We are able to do this because we offer customers car loans based on affordability and not a credit score alone.
No company can guaranteed car finance. As a responsible finance company we have a moral responsibility to only provide finance for people who can afford the repayments. If you do stumble across a company that states that you have a 100% chance of getting car finance, then avoid them at all costs. Not only would this go against the Financial Conduct Authority’s rules and regulations – it’s downright unethical. It’s important to use a finance company who looks after you and your interests, not sells you finance at any cost.
