Dealers may also able to offer larger discounts as a Dealer Deposit Contribution currently ranging between £500-£13,011 over and above our advertised Max Prices subject to you taking out PCP finance on certain vehicles.
How it works?
You are able to request any current manufacturers offer on any 1st registered car, however manufacturers offers are usually restricted to either the vehicle being registered or ordered before a certain date.
STEP 1> Check if the model you require is first available under the scheme and whether the car could be delivered within your required time scale by calling 0800 033 6022 Mon- Friday 9am-6pm.
STEP 2> Build your required car, add the options then in Step 3 “Other Conditions” specify the details of the manufacturers offer required.
STEP 3> Select the best offer received through our system. You can communicate with our suppliers through our messaging system in case you have any questions prior to accepting their offer.
If you have been offered a better price than our Max Price then use our NYOD service to reduce the Max Price.
A recent example of a finance offer requested by a client on a successful order was “Want Mercedes finance (PCP) as shown on their web site at 5.8% APR. 36 months 10000 miles per year”.”
How to compare Loans?
Car dealers will often quote you the FLAT RATE; this is the interest amount per annum and not the APR which is the total rate you pay. Always ask for the APR in order to allow you to compare rates accurately.
We would recommend going for a cheap personal loan through our partner even if you decided to buy a new car from your local dealer as your local dealer will not be able to compete, unless there is a manufacturer’s special finance offer in place.
More and more car buyers are obtaining a cheap car loan online before going in to face the car dealer as this will more often than not save you more money.
There are two types of Personal Loans available in the market today.
1) Personal unsecured loan
- Available from our partner.
2) Personal secured loan - Similar to the above that can be obtained for a longer period and is secured against your home.
