What are the benefits of choosing to get car finance without a deposit?
The most obvious benefit is you don’t have to put down a big lump sum. Not many of us have a lot of money sitting in the bank ready to use as a down payment. Our finance packages allow you to spread the cost of credit out over a time period that works for you and not put down a lump sum at the start. Typically customers choose a 3 – 5 year repayment period which allows an affordable monthly payment that they feel comfortable with.
By not putting down a deposit at the start it can also free up money for car insurance, fuel, and any accessories you may want to buy for your new car. As most of our lenders who approve you will do so on a no deposit plan as that is what the majority of customers look for. That said, our team can quote you the same finance package with a deposit so you can choose the car finance that you’re happiest with.
With Refused Car Finance, you can benefit from:
🚘 Buying your car from any dealer
