Car Loans

What options are available to finance a car?

If you’re looking to raise some money to buy a car, there are a number of options available. If you aren’t buying with cash, one option is to take out a car finance loan directly with the car seller. It means you can decide early which vehicle you want to buy, as the loan is tied to the car itself, but also means that the dealer depends on your credit history to give you the best interest rates.

Hire purchase (HP) or Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) are based on agreements with the dealer, or a broker acting on their behalf. But these kinds of deal mean that the car won’t technically be yours until you’ve paid off the full amount of the loan, plus interest. In the case of the PCP, you can hand back the car once the contract is over, but you’ve got to pay off the car’s resale value if you want to keep it.

But with an unsecured loan from Progressive Money, it’s different. If you’re struggling to meet the needs of other car loan lenders, we may be able to help. We take more than just your credit history into account when deciding whether to lend you the money you need – we appreciate there’s more to your situation than just numbers on a screen.

Why take out a car loan?

An unsecured loan from Progressive Money can give you the boost you need to afford the car you’d like to buy. There’s no need to compromise on costs, which means you don’t have to settle for something that’s not as roomy as you need it to be. Plus, when you take out a car loan with us, you’ll have the cash in hand ready to buy from the dealer outright, which means you may be able to haggle for a better deal, or even a better car.

Am I eligible for a car loan with Progressive Money?

As long as you meet the following criteria, you may be eligible for a car loan from us:

  • Aged 18-70
  • A homeowner
  • Employed or self-employed
  • Living in England, Scotland or Wales
  • Able to afford monthly repayments comfortably from your regular income.
    • Although our car finance loan is an unsecured loan, which means it isn’t tied to your car or home, we still require that you are a homeowner in order to borrow. Also, we cannot guarantee your personal loan until we have reviewed your current circumstances and the repayments you can afford.

      Borrow money over a flexible period of 13 months to 10 years, at a monthly rate you can afford. We offer loans from £1,000 to £15,000, which you can put towards funding your ideal vehicle.

      Can I still get car finance with a bad credit rating?

      In the past we’ve dealt with many people who are in need of a loan, but might feel let down by lenders because of their poor credit score.

      Progressive Money may be able to help. We don’t turn away people because of bad credit, and we offer complete transparency about our rates, fees and charges.

      Before we come to a final decision we take a lot of different factors into account, including your current financial situation. We don’t just use automated credit checks to decide whether or not to approve a loan – we look at the whole picture. That’s what makes Progressive Money different to other lenders – and we’ve helped thousands of people get what they need.
