What is Black Box Car Finance?

Mainstream lenders can be reluctant to offer support to those who struggled to keep up with repayments in the past. Black box car finance, or Pay as You Go Car Finance as it is also known, is one of the options out there that could help you get a car on finance.

It’s often easier to get approved for than other traditional loans and – with handy built-in payment reminders – a black box car may even help towards rebuilding your credit score. There isn't the same strict criteria as other lenders you may have dealt with in the past. We can help in this situation.

Is there guaranteed car finance? 

There is no such thing as guaranteed car finance. No company can guarantee car finance. Regulators don't approve of using this phrase as they believe it is misleading and used to tempt customers into applying for finance.
