I applied for car finance with theses people as on there website it clearly stated that they excepted people with poor credit & I could buy a car from any dealership. However after going through with the full application they then suddenly decide to tell me that I will need a guarantor in order to proceed with the application. Only it states nothing about that on there website... Time wasters!… Read Full Review

Hi there,
I'm sorry we weren't able to help you on this occasion. We are able to help customers with poor credit, but this is dependent on them meeting the criteria of our panel of lenders, and unfortunately, one of our lenders does require a guarantor to be able to provide finance. All of our lenders do operate the policy that you can buy a car from any reputable dealership in the UK.
Once again, I apologise for the problems you experienced and thank you for your feedback.
Kind regards, Carfinance247

“Very slow process. Hidden fees”

Carfinance247 Applied online Thursday, the following day received a text to advise I had been approved and I should call. I called and spoke to one of the advisors, told him I already seen a car to which he told me they were one of their approved dealers. He took the details and called me back with a price. 49.9% ape. This was expected as I have only finished paying off a trust deed in January this year. I agreed and he said he would get things started. I called on the Monday, he wasn't… Read Full Review

Thankyou for your comment.
We have looked into the situation and with the lender you were approved by, we do not charge admin fees. However, that lender may well do so, and i'm afraid this is out of our control.
Thanks, Carfinance247

Yes they do charge admin fee, they certainly did with me.

In my case they 'covertly' included the 'admin fee' to the finance, disguised as the 'cost of vehicle'. Upon this fee being discovered, in retrospect, and subsequently questioning all parties concerned (including the finance company); apparently their meme is; well you signed, so tough luck - this also includes miselling you a 4 year agreement, with further more insidious 'hidden charges'; consistent with being strung a load of BS. For good measure they'll suppress, or worse delete, data that would prove you were misinformed in the first place - serious stuff I'd suggest, and the height of dishonesty.
Be weary of these Aurthur Daley's, the company will try to rinse you good style, make no mistake.

I was really skeptical that I'd be approved for car finance, even though my credit score isn't the worst I've been declined for every loan I've ever applied for and can only get credit cards with a really high interest rate. I passed my test earlier in the year and was thinking there was no way I'd be able to get a car any time soon, but saw an advert for Carfinance247 and applied out of curiosity more than anything- I wasn't thinking I'd actually be approved. It quickly came back that I'd been… Read Full Review

My budget was around £200 a month over four years on a PCP deal with a dealership. A friend recommended carfinance247, so I applied online. A friendly adviser called me, confirmed my requirements and promised a decision within a set time. He telephoned me on the dot with a positive decision. My carfinance247 loan is cheaper than with the PCP dealer deal, plus I am actually buying my car outright. The paperwork was with me the same day and can all be transacted via email. I couldn't be… Read Full Review

It was my first time getting car finance and buying a car from a dealer! Really surprised at how smooth it all went. My consultant was a pleasure to talk too! I must of sent her over 40 cars for her to check out for me and get quotes on. I was on a very tight and specific budget, and she helped me every step of the way and kept me constantly updated on the status of my application. Even on her day off, she made sure one of her colleagues contact me and help me with any questions i had, and… Read Full Review

Filled in the application for car finance through CARFINANCE24/7 on the weds evening and Thursday morning got an email saying I was approved. Then I got a phone call but was unable to answer so rang back 1hr later.

I left it a couple of hrs and phoned back and yet again he was on the phone so they once again said he would call me back. This happened twice more and… Read Full Review

“Carfinance247 Amazing service!!”

Visit www.carfinance247.co.uk

Well, first off I have to start by saying that the whole process was a pleasure from start to finish. I went to a few other places for finance (car craft, carloans4u and a few others) and they didn't come close to the service provided by carfinance247 and in particular the advisor. The service was impeccable and even though I took a while to find the right car he was patiant and totally on my side the whole time. They don't try to rush you, in fact, they encourage you to find the perfect car… Read Full Review

I was very dubious about using this service and kept feeling the whole way that something would go wrong or eventually they will ask for money to carry on, but no they were excellent from start to finish. I do have bad credit and am semi retired yet this company was fabulous and found perfect finance for me. Took around 10 days from start to finish and they was no waiting around at dealership when we collected car. Would recommend this to anyone, excellent service and made me so happy.
