Car finance deals we offer
Car finance comes in three different types. You can choose any of them that suit your budget. However, as a responsible car finance lenders, we will also look over your financial history to make sure that you do not struggle with payments.
These three types are:
- Personal loans
You can finance your car with personal loans. As the name suggests, there is no requirement for collateral. You own the car as soon as you make the payment to a car dealer. You will pay back the money over months. The length of the loan depends on the amount you will borrow.
- Hire purchase
Hire purchase requires you to make down payment. Most of the lenders set it as minimum as 10%, but we will let you sign into it even if you pay 5% of your car’s value upright. You will pay fixed monthly instalments throughout the term, which is generally between 1 and 5 years.
- Personal contract purchase
Personal contract purchase is similar to hire purchase, but you will have to pay down 10% upright as a down payment. Monthly instalments will be smaller than hire purchase agreement, but the last payment will be bigger. You can say it as a balloon payment. The length of the loan is between 2 and 7 years.
To apply for car loans, you need to be the citizen of the UK, have a functional bank account and must be employed.

How much does car finance cost?
Following are the factors that affect the cost of a car loan.
- Down payment
A higher deposit means reduced loan-to-value. The lower the amount you borrow, the lower the interest rate will be. We assure you that our annual percentage rates are more competitive than other direct lenders.
- Your credit history
Your credit report plays a paramount role to decide how much the loan will cost you. You will likely get a deal at attractive interest rates with good credit standing. The higher the credit score, the lower the interest rate will be.
- Type of the loan
Each loan has its pros and cons. You should consider your financial situation before clinching a deal. If you are not able to decide which suits your budget, take guidance from a financial counsellor. Whatever the way you finance your car, make sure that you will be able to pay it back.
Can you apply for car loans with bad credit?
Financing a car with bad credit can be tough, but we invite applications from bad credit borrowers. Since there is a possibility of committing a default, you will get the loan at a bit higher interest rates.
At Safe Money Loan, you can get bad credit car finance deals at competitive interest rates if you deposit larger funds upright.
- The down payment size will be 10% if you sign hire purchase agreement.
- The down payment size will be 15% if you sign a personal purchase contract.
Why are our car loan deals better than other mainstream lenders?
Borrowers apply for no credit check loans when they have a poor credit rating to avoid further decline in credit score, but direct lenders allow you to avail this facility for short-term loans. No lender will approve your application without perusing your credit score. Even if you are applying for car finance for bad credit, mainstream lenders will run a hard credit check.
We understand that hard inquiries pull your score, lowering your chances of borrowing money in the future. This is why we run soft inquiries, where approval is almost there irrespective of any credit score. We will check your credit report, but it will not pull your credit score. With soft or no credit check, we will be able to determine your affordability without damaging your credit score.

- We do not charge a prepayment penalty.
- We can extend the due date in case of an emergency. Make sure you inform us earlier.
- We do not charge processing fees.
