When you make a free, no-obligation application with us, we get straight to work finding you the best car finance package for your circumstances, even if you have bad credit! Our car finance eligibility checker is a fast and free way to see how we can hep you without harming your credit score!

Does applying for car finance affect my credit score?
Once you’ve familiarised yourself with our car finance criteria and you’ve decided car finance is right for you, it’s time to apply! One of the biggest benefits of using a car finance broker like us is that we only provide a soft search on your credit file when you apply. A soft search credit credit allows us and our lenders to take a partial look at your report and we don’t get access to the full file. A soft search can be recorded on your report for you to see but it won’t leave a visible footprint nor will it affect your credit score.
In some cases, applying for finance with multiple car finance lenders in a short space of time can have a negative impact on your score. You can save time and protect your score but applying with us and we do all the leg work for you. We compare some of the most trusted lenders in the UK in an instant and help you to select the best car finance package with the lowest rate available.

I came to this company looking for a car, I didn’t know what to expect. I met Richard who took me through the whole process, he was absolutely amazing. I kept changing my mind, but he was there and he was so patient with me, he was incredible. In the end, I got the car I wanted and Richard made sure he helped me find a car that was within my budget. Richard thank you, and thank you for bearing with me while I could not decide…. Overall the customer service was exceptional. Thank you Refused Car Finance & thank you, Richard 👏👏👏
Can I get a car on finance with low credit?
Many of our customers first come to us and ask what is the lowest credit score needed for car finance and in short our answer is, there isn’t one. There are three main credit referencing agencies and each has its own scoring criteria which makes it hard to pinpoint a certain score you need for car finance. We don’t just focus on your credit history and instead look to the future. We assess your application based on our car finance eligibility criteria and focus more on your affordability instead to get you approved! Affordability is really important for car finance and as long as you can prove your income and ability to meet repayments, we can get on your way to finding a new car!
