Written on: 10/07/2016 by Bradford247 (1 review written)

Hello. I took a car through finance from trade centre Wales, through credit for cars in November 2014. Just a simple Peugeot 207, BIG regret. I was 18, buying my 2nd car. Since day one I had problems after problems with them. Around 3 months ago, my head gasgit blew, and is basically a scrap car. I rang them and explained but they were rarther rude, didn't offer no help, told me I had to keep paying my finance until my car was paid of (November 17). I told them I'm refusing paying until I get… Read Full Review

Hi, Credit4Cars have gone into Administration. The insolvency people who have taken over your finance are called Avelo Limited. It probably best to give them a call to find out where you stand. If you go onto Credit4cars website you can make payments directly to Avelo there, speak to Avelo before you make any payments though.

I am in a similar situation. I phoned Shoosmiths and said I am behind in my payments but want to sort it out.
The lady was really helpful and polite and even lowered my repayment.

Hi guys For all of you having difficulty with c4c I have just paid of my car and they asked for the £250 if I want to keep the car!!!!! I asked for a settlement figure to which they wouldn't give me one so I made them an offer as full settlement minus the £250 and they accepted only because I said I have asked my solicitor to look into the illegal use of the immobiliser and putting me into default when it was them that made the mistake of not collecting the money. Biggest mistake I have… Read Full Review

Firstly, whatever happens, your cars CANNOT be immobilised remotely as it is ILLEGAL. Secondly, Shoosmiths are charged with the collection of monies owed by people who still have outstanding finance with C4C.
These are the people you need to contact and find out where your money needs to go.
Last point. Consider the sheer amount of people who are all in the same boat, the multiple reports on here, FB pages created as action groups and then figure out just what an absolute logistical nightmare its is trying to find out who owes what. If the Direct debits are not going through or you have stopped payments don't be idiots by spending that money, put it to one side, you may well need to resume payments at some point.

Hi

I was the same and I chased and chased everything, I spoke to shoosmith and told them I wasn't happy but sadly like most it isn't there fault, credit4cars is now avelo, I've had my direct debit reinstated under avelo and the first payment is due to be taken out tomorrow morning, I've got a year and a half left then the car is paid for, it's been removed from my credit file as paid for aswell but shoosmith did say they were sorting through everything and it will be back on again soon but they were not expected to be flooded with so many! So just contact shoosmith and they will send you a dd mandate to reset it back up again but in the mean time until you get that and send it back off do not pay anything!
I hope this helps

Hi I am also in this situation like many other's. This has been to the relevant authorities and a lot of reports are being drawn up and the FCA are involved now. I know you don't want to join a group but there is one credit 4 cars/avelo action group. It was made secret as shoosmiths have staff spying on customers. Please don't believe them, avelo Ltd are C4C's and are trying to get as much money as they can. Not a penny is going to fidor bank who stopped their investment as the tracking devices are illegal. Please search group as you will change your mind once you see the Information shared. They are all in Cahoot's! One customer was threatened by a shoosmiths employee that if they said anything about them she will take action! Your are paying a debt company. Check your Apr. They have breached contracts and they are being investigated by the FCA as they were unable to contact them. We have watchdog informed and awaiting outcome. They have closed credit files and a lot of customers have had money back to October repaid. Please check if you are happy to pay, as C4C are bust and the directors started avelo to ensure they get money they are not clearing folks contract. and the lies we are all receiving from shoosmiths is despicable. They are conmen and I have a formal complaint to shoosmiths about their conduct. We have a fight and a case. Watch this space. Avelo Ltd are not FCA regulated. How can a bust company get the money and not their borrowers. Check companies house.. Avelo owe fidor bank also.

What part of all of this are you not getting?? C4C DO NOT EXIST!!!! They ceased to exist last year and the administrators were called in to do what administrators do, either find a viable buyer of the business or try to recoup as much money as they are able to in order to repay as much debt as the company accumulated.
Your sole course of action is to deal with the administrators of the business, NOBODY ELSE. The payments you make will be handled by the administrators and nobody else. AVELO, Shoosmiths , Zippy are irrelevant to you and every other person that took out finance in good faith. To find out what you need to do, you need to contact the administrators directly for advise. The FSA MUST be informed of any correspondence you have received by any other party which suggests that they have a financial interest in the payments you make for the vehicle. Think about it, do some basic research, it will all become clear..........

Hi I have had the same problem, I purchased a car from credit4cars in July 2015 which wasn't the car that they originally offered me but, but I took it anyway, I got to there Essex branch and filled out all form was told the car is taxed for 6 months, which I knew, as per the new car tax laws I would have to tax it as soon as the car went over into my name.

I got my car from a private garage that used c4c it had 58 thousand miles on clock 13 months down the line it has 68 I think that were trouble free the car has only had 1 owner and is mint but the clutch has decided to go I would get it done but with all this stuff with shoosmiths and not being able to sort any thing I decided to by a ford galaxy for 300 pound and it drives perfect I just went out this morning to start my astra and the battery is flat I haven't used it for a month it's sat on my drive with no insurance I will not get it fixed until I no what's going on I do no though if you go to the website badcreditnewcar.co.uk the man is very helpfull and he has a thing going with credit 4 cars where you take your car to him he then gives you a new finance agreement and a new car you pick yourself he then takes you c4c car and puts it in an impound where c4c come and get it and end your finance with them and all is sorted

Hiya, we are in same position. Damn nightmare. Someone has made a group on fb for us to join together, just needs more of us. Search C4C action group. It was not our fault they are in this mess and the dodgy dealings are shocking. The group is hard to find as closed group, hopefully you can join and get these rogues sorted! X

Really concerned, I have never missed a payment, I got all the paperwork from shoessmith through along with the new direc6 debit mandate and the 1st payment for the new rouge company avelo was meant to come out on the 15th March, but nothing has been taken at all, my concern is that this is putting my account into arrears, what the hell is going on

Just be careful tho with not paying as I got advised from citizens advice that I should carry on paying avelo so if it does get to the point where they are saying they will take the car away you have a valid argument that your making payments, think most people are just hoping that they are just going to get given their respected cars, and all the debt disappears, that will never happen.

The car loan centre WAS apart of credit 4 cars until they separated back in July 15. Moved across the road then moved again as was now a competitor. Two of the directors from credit 4 cars now run the car loan centre as they were bought/pushed out by their creditors Fidor bank.
