“Good service”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by Quinting301 (1 review written)

Good customer care, they delivered as they promised, very helpful and very professional in their dealings. They are easy to talk to on the phone . I would recommend family and friends to buy from them. Excellent service. The only thing I did not like was the high interest they charge. When part exchange your car they they always tell you there is a problem with your car either mileage or body work ie accident right off this for reason to reduce your asking price… Read Full Review

“Buying Hybrid cars in Bay Area becomes easy ”

Written on: 02/12/2011 by AdrianCA (1 review written)

I had bad credit problems, but needed an auto loan to buy one of the hybrid cars in Bay Area, which I saw in a car expo. But getting the right financing option that I needed to buy my chosen vehicle, which could also help repair my poor credit, was an uphill task. Most companies offering bad credit auto loans were out to take advantage of my credit problems. Finally, a neighbor suggested No Bull Car Loans. Once I got in touch with them, I was surprised to find how their special financing… Read Full Review

“Refinance car loan to make life easier for you”

Written on: 09/11/2011 by PatriciaD (1 review written)

I was in desperate need to save money each month and was looking for getting a refinance car loan but to no avail. It was then that a friend recommended contacting No Bull Car Loans to get tips and the know-how about the right steps to lower my monthly car loan payment by refinancing my car loan. I was fairly surprised at the friendly and helpful behavior of the staff who not only guided me through the procedure but also ensured that I got to refinance my car loan, which in turn meant more… Read Full Review

“Absolutely terrible”

Written on: 27/06/2011

I applied for finance through getmecarfinance.com, before I started application the person I spoke to on live chat (myles) said I wouldn't need a deposit as I told him we didn't have one, so we went ahead with the online form, paid the £25 fee thinking he would help us. He kept telling me he was getting us finance which he said he did eventually, we have no proof of this apart from an email, he said he could give us £300 for our car which we could use as deposit, then said it wasn't… Read Full Review

They are a complete waste of time, I would seriously question whether they even have a panel of lenders?, they want to flog you old charges that are 10 or 12 years old and expect you to pay around £4000 plus for the priviledge, do yourself a favour, avoid these clowns and if you can get around £1500 together get to the auction's , I saw a 2007 renault clio for £1275 not long ago, this shower will charge you £5000 for the same thing.

Exactly! and what happens is that they match you to their mysterious panel of lenders, (all will refuse you) and then you will have to choose a car from their stock! This is where it gets hilarious! their stock is so old that most models around that age will be well and truly worn out by now. They expect you to take out 3 years finance on cars which are 2002/2003 plates! absolutely laughable ! most of those would already have been around the clock and/or are simply close to the end of their useful lives.These cars are what people with good credit part exchange at a dealer to buy a new car with and this lot seem to think they can market them like late models. I refer to getmecarfinance.com not welcome. They also took £25.00 from me just to look at their old has been's and refused to refund it. Don't get caught with this scam.

I'm guessing you paid 25 because you have a poor credit record.
Which if true , you would get refused everywhere . Please explain what you expect? A brand new shiny car? , it's all about RISK and I'm guessing you are high risk.

You have a bad credit record for a reason, I should think yourself lucky you got any offer whatsoever...I would

Do you know something! I had a work colleague loan me the money eventually, and guess what? all interest free! I bought a 2009 car which suits me, unlike the rubbish you offer for sale, most of which has had its day and around 10 years old! at a premium price! people avoid this rubbish dealer who is merely profiteering on peoples misery, these cars can be obtained at auction for one fifth of what these clowns are charging you!

So because someone is a high risk you feel its fair to mess the persons life more with rubbish.. thats wicked.. if you cannot offer a shiny car why start a business that promises good service. Yes poor credit, yet yo expect the person to pay more ..

You were told you might need a deposit and we were trying to get you a car to fit in with your £300 deposit. You basicly gave us 24 hours to do this. Were you offered finance? the answer is YES. At no point did we miss lead you. We have lots of customers who are happy with our service, we lend to everyone

Numpty nuts - sounds like it's not Welcome Car Finance you had the issue with, but the finance branch cos you either wouldn't or couldn't pay! I assume you can read so you will have known how muck you had to pay. The reason you had to go to WCF is because you had poor credit - and it looks like you have not paid them again - stop being a victim and take ownership of your life.

I tend to agree with the reviewer - Welcome Car Finance (who supposedly closed in 2009) should be blamed for everything!!

There is a half wit seeming to defend them on this forum who, over a period of months, has left numerous comments against genuine reviews of exceptionally poor service.

The person is a deluded loon. just ignore him/her and one day...if everyone is really really nice...they'll go away and take their friends from WCF with them.

You will know them by their comments - they usually use the word slanderous and spell know as 'no'. They also repeatedly claim that WCF closed in 2009 - which makes you wonder how WCF call so many people?

Referring to the person as a dummy would be an insult to mannequins....but still not remotely slanderous.
