As an FCA regulated credit broker, we may introduce you to a lender capable of funding your vehicle.

We may receive a fee for introducing you to a lender should you enter into an agreement. Should you wish for the sum of any fee to be disclosed, we will do so upon receipt of request in writing.
We offer contract hire, finance lease and daily rental products from a carefully selected panel of lenders. All products that we offer are related to the leasing, hire or purchase of a vehicle. We will supply to you a list of our panel of lenders should you request us to do so. We do not fund any credit contracts. Instead, all credit applications are introduced to a third-party lender. After having assessed your needs and circumstances, we will provide you with an advice and recommendation service tailored to suit your needs.
We will charge you a Credit Brokering Fee of £180 including VAT for our credit brokering services. This fee is paid once we place the order for your vehicle and may be paid by credit/debit card or by bacs transfer.
