What’s Bad Credit And Why Do I have it?

In simple terms, if you’ve missed payments on credit arrangements in the past, made late payments or have County Court Judgements (CCJs) against you, you may have a bad credit score or rating. Your payment history is collected by various agencies which are consulted by lenders when you apply for finance.

Lenders then make their own judgement as to whether your past payment performance meets their standards, and your application will be accepted or declined. This is why one finance provider may lend car finance for bad credit while another may not.

Luckily, Motor Range has access to a wide range of different finance providers with a variety of qualifying criteria and no matter what your credit rating, we will find you a deal to suit your circumstances.

How to get Car Finance For Bad Credit

Firstly, whatever your rating, you should regularly check your credit profile to make sure that everything is correct and up to date, including your address. Equifax, Experian and TransUnion can all provide you with access to your own credit report.

Most payment defaults, bankruptcies or CCJs will stay on your report for 6 years, after which, they are wiped from your profile. In the meantime, you can improve your credit rating by doing all or some of the following:

  • Register on the electoral roll
  • Pay your bills on time
  • Check if you’re linked to another person or previous resident at your address who may have a bad credit rating.
  • Check for fraudulent activity, e.g. an application by someone who isn’t you.
  • Pay off outstanding debt before applying for new credit.
  • Stay at the same address and at the same job for an extended period.
  • Avoid ‘maxing out’ any credit cards.
  • Reduce the amount you are asking to borrow by providing a deposit
  • Use a ‘credit-building’ credit card which will have a high interest rate, but make sure that you pay it off every month.

All of these things will go in your favour when you apply for car finance for bad credit.

Great finance deal for you

Our advisors will take the time to get to know your financial circumstances and your preferred payment terms - what you can realistically afford to pay each month and how long you want to make those payments for; whether you have a deposit; the number of miles you’ll be travelling per year; and whether you’d like to own the car at the end of the contract or hand it back and start again with a newer or different model.

For those with no credit history - perhaps you’ve never had a credit card, mortgage or other loan - there are a select few providers that we work with who will still be happy to lend car finance for bad credit. And if you’re self-employed, we can still get you car finance! Even though you may not have proof of earnings for the required time, we can help to find you the best possible car finance deal… just ask!
