What are APRs?

APRs (Annual Percentage Rates), are a mechanism for lenders to let you know how much interest you are paying on a yearly basis for your loan. It allows a direct comparison to be made between loans such as credit cards and mortgages as well as hire purchase and personal loans.

However, a 10% APR on a loan of £1,000 repayable over 1 year doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll pay a total of £100 in interest. It will be lower than this, because the 10% is usually calculated monthly on the amount still outstanding. In this example, paying monthly, you would actually repay c. £55 in interest.

You don’t have to crunch the numbers for yourself, though: any loan offer you get will always show clearly how much you will actually repay on top of the amount you borrow.

“Representative APR” is a legal term that means it’s the rate that at least 51% of applicants are offered. The actual rate you’re offered may be higher or lower, depending on the lender and your financial situation.

We offer a variety of options for all our customers, whether your credit history is good or if you have problems in the past. Our team will always try to secure you the best acceptance terms available, subject to status.

Car Finance FAQs

Below we list some frequently asked questions that give you an insight into your options when buying from us. If you can’t find the answer to your question here contact us here or call in at one of our showrooms for a chat, there’s no obligation to buy!


We offer a range of finance packages from a list of lenders. We work with Blackhorse Motor Finance, Santander Consumer Finance and a specialist broker, who helps with customers who have specific requirements or issues with their credit history.

We may be paid an income from one of these lenders if you choose to take out finance with them. For more details see our important information sheet on site.

Whilst our main finance products are hire purchase and personal loan, we also offer PCP and lease purchase. For simplicity, we quote our hire purchase/personal loan rates on this site, which are available to all customers subject to status.
Our people are trained to give you the best advice. They can talk you through the various options available and demonstrate which ones offer you the best value.
Because our cars offer excellent value we can, subject to status, accommodate customers who wish to pay no deposit, owe more than their car is worth, or require cash back to settle a personal loan on their vehicle.

We can settle the outstanding finance on your current car as part of the overall package & then re-finance this amount (subject to status) as part of the new finance agreement on your new car.

Letting us settle your current agreement also avoids the 7-10 day delay that finance companies enforce if you settle the car yourself.
We have agreements in place with major national finance companies that make the process of funding your new car as hassle-free as possible.

We require only limited information and, in most circumstances, one or two key proofs of identity. Your finance proposal can be processed, and accepted, the same day. You don’t even have to wait for funds to clear in your account before collecting your new car, simply bring your proofs on the day of collection, check through and sign your finance document and you can drive your car away there and then.

You could be in your new car in a couple of days, a lot quicker than the 5-10 days it could take with a direct lender.

We have a service available where you can check your credit worthiness without affecting your credit score. Alternatively if you've already chosen a car you can apply for finance for it online from the finace calculator on the vehicle details page.

Our team of finance specialists will then contact you regarding the finance company's decision & the best acceptance we can get for you.

In certain circumstances there may also be a requirement to pre-sign your documents prior to delivery. But don’t worry: if this is the case, our finance team will keep you informed throughout the process.
