Can I get car finance with bad credit?

Certainly, it is feasible to secure car finance even with bad credit history. While having a low credit score doesn't necessarily prevent you from borrowing money to purchase the car you require, it might result in certain lenders being hesitant to approve your application.

If you have bad credit history and are in search of a car, or if you've faced rejections from other lenders before, this is where a specialized broker like Carboom can step in to assist. As one of the largest providers of car finance for individuals with bad credit in the UK, we excel in aiding customers in securing car loans despite their credit challenges, drawing upon our extensive 10 years of experience in this field.

We may also be able to help with car finance to you even if:

  • You are in an Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA)
  • You have a County Court Judgment (CCJ)
  • You’re looking for car finance when self-employed
  • You have experienced bankruptcy in the past
  • You are looking for car finance on benefits
  • You are looking to get car finance with an overdraft

Can I get car finance with no credit history?

Yes, Carboom could offer you car finance with no credit history. Having no credit history can make it more difficult to get accepted for car finance. If you’re looking for a no credit car loan, you might have to use a specialist broker or lender.

People without a credit history could be perceived as riskier prospects by lenders, as there is no data available to gauge their financial responsibility. If you fall into this category, the car finance options accessible to you might resemble those available to someone seeking a bad credit car loan. Consequently, you might need to consider utilizing a direct lender specializing in bad credit car finance, such as Carboom.

You might have heard that you need to apply with a guarantor or joint applicant if you have bad credit. This is not always the case, and guarantor finance is less common nowadays, but there are some specialist lenders available who could help.
