Refused Car Finance introduces contact-free car buying and delivery through dealer partners
England is now into its second national lockdown and the latest COVID-19 rules have said that car dealers can sell cars online and deliver them as long as they are adhering to social distancing and COVID-19 guidelines. Many car dealers across the UK have been working hard to meet the COVID-19 health and safety guidelines since they reopened in July 2020, so you can be assured that you can buy a car in a safe and secure way.
Another national lockdown is really daunting but the government is keen for the country to keep going. It is encouraged that you should work from home where possible, but many companies are still operating from their head offices.
Our recent survey found that 80% of drivers had not bought, leased or financed a new or used car during the first lockdown in England, but why not? Lockdown 2.0 is the perfect time to buy or finance a new car!
Should you finance a new car during lockdown 2.0?
The answer is yes!
There are a number of reasons why you should finance a new or used car during the second national lockdown.
- More businesses are allowed to stay open during lockdown 2.0 which means more drivers will be on the road.
- It is safer to drive your own car by yourself than it is to use public transport (if you can drive).
- If your car is involved in an accident and you need another car fast, we can help! In most cases, we can get you a finance decision the same day!
- During a national lockdown, you can’t eat out, go to the pub or go on holiday so why not treat yourself to a new car? You could use the money to put down a deposit on a used car finance deal. Alternatively, we do have many no deposit car finance options available too.
- Flexible finance packages mean that you can delay your first payment for up to six weeks.
- Contact-free car finance means that it’s safer than ever to get your next car.
