Looking for no credit car loans? You’re in luck! Getting car finance with no credit history can be frustrating. For example, if you are a student looking for student car finance, you may have not had a chance to get finance yet. Many people have not established a borrowing history, whether that is because you haven’t taken out credit cards, never applied for a mortgage or simply always pay in cash. However, when it comes to applying for a car loan no credit, you may find having a lack of credit history works against you. However, thanks to our range of specialist lenders, that is where we can help!

We understand there are many reasons why you may not have a borrowing history and that this alone doesn’t reflect your ability to be able to pay back a car loan. By working with a select panel of specialist lenders so that we can get you a car loan with no credit. We won’t waste anyone’s time by sending your application to lenders who decline finance applications from those with no credit history! Instead, we will work with a selective group of lenders that you have the best chance of being approved.

Financing a used car with no credit

Regardless of whether you have little to no credit history, we can help you get a great car finance deal with affordable monthly repayments!  We use a soft search only and match you with the most suitable no credit car finance lenders.

How do I know if I have a credit history?

You can check your personal credit report for free, there are a range of websites out there that will help you do this but we recommend using Credit Karma, Experian or ClearScore. You do not need to pay to see your own credit history and you should leave any site that asks you for your bank details.

The majority of people have some sort of credit history; this will all be recorded on your credit report and is the view most lenders have when checking your credit file. If you do however find that there is no credit history on your report at all, there are many ways in which you can go about building one. We have written an in depth post on how to build your credit score that is a great starting point for you!

I have been dealing with Sean and the service I received was fantastic! After having difficulties with my credit due to COVID-19 I was struggling to get approved. Sean made the process quick and easy and I am picking up my new car this week! The process took 5 days with Sean! I will be returning in the future! Thanks again!
