Our loans for car purchases and repairs are personal loans, which means there is no initial deposit like you get with hiring or leasing a car. If you are buying a car using a personal loan, you will also own it outright, although you will need to keep up the payments on your loan. Using a personal loan for your car repair or purchase also gives you set monthly payments so there is no balloon payment like you commonly get with a personal contract purchase.

If you are considering purchasing a car using one of our loans it is a good idea to look into a few things before you get started. To begin with, if you are considering buying a car, remember to factor in the costs beyond just the price tag. You will likely need an MOT, tax and insurance along with paying for normal expenses like petrol. If the car you want is expensive to tax and insure, plus it costs a lot to fuel, this could make it unaffordable in the long run.

Once you understand the full cost of the vehicle, you may want to consider having it checked by an independent mechanic. This is generally not necessary for new cars but if you are buying used, it can be a good idea to ensure the car is in good working order. Plus, if the mechanic does find an issue, you can use that to negotiate on price.

Finally, if you are considering using a loan to buy a car, you should make sure you secure the loan before you agree to any purchases. This will ensure you have the money available and prevent any potential legal troubles.

Our loan applications use soft search technology, this means they do not leave a negative mark on your credit history the way some traditional lending applications might. This is particularly important if you do not have perfect credit in the first place, as multiple hard credit checks can be seen as a negative sign by future lenders.

To see if you qualify for one of our loans, starting the process is as simple as filling out our application. If approved at this stage, you will be invited into your local branch for the next step. If you have any questions about the application or the loan in the meantime, you can call your local Everyday Loans branch.

Our expert staff will be happy to help you through the process. If you get conditional approval, we will then set up a meeting with one of our loan experts at your nearest branch. They will review your application and get to know you better before deciding whether to offer you a loan.

Tailored Local Lending

Our local branches are our most valuable asset when it comes to helping people get the loans they need. Our experts can meet with you face to face to learn more than what is on your credit history.

We will look at how you manage your money, your financial obligations and any unique circumstances you may have. This allows us to offer loans to a wider variety of customers than lenders that just rely on automated credit scoring.

During the meeting, our expert will finalise the loan and provide any information you may need.

Responsible Lending

Everyday Loans is a responsible lending agency. We work hard to provide all of our customers with an honest and fair service. This includes ensuring that all of our data is stored in a safe and secure manner.

To ensure we are providing the best service for our customers, we meet with each one to discuss potential loans, explain the terms of the agreement and complete a full assessment of each individual's financial situation. All of our customer data is stored securely and processed in line with UK GDPR and DPA regulations.

We also ask that all of our customers provide the most accurate information possible in their application and during any meetings. We advise that our clients do some research before the meeting so they understand common terms and ideas used in lending, such as APR and credit score. If there is something a customer does not understand, our local experts will be happy to explain.

Finally, we recommend that our customers let us know if their circumstances change. For example, if they are unable to make a payment. In cases like this, we can work together to find alternative arrangements for paying a loan.

Everything you need to know about car loans

That new set of wheels is a well-deserved investment, and for many adults is a simple necessity in life. Taking a loan to purchase or repair a vehicle is an option, and many adults find their employment and other obligations resting upon securing credit to make the investment. Even if your credit score isn’t as perfect as other people’s, we’re here to help where other lenders wouldn’t.

  • Q1: Is my score going to change when I apply

    In some cases, with other providers, you will get a mark on your credit score that shows you made an application. This can put you in a tough spot if you get refused a number of times, as it can seem to a lender that you badly need finances but have been turned down by similar institutions. The good news where Everyday Loans is concerned is that this won’t happen when you apply with us. This is because we use unique Soft Search technology which won’t make a mark on your score, regardless of whether you are accepted or not.

  • Q2: Can you explain to me what APR means?

    Sure. It stands in full for annual percentage rate. It’s nothing overly complex; it just refers to the total repayment amount for your car loan. It’s a little more complicated than just, say, a ten percent repayment on a £10,000 loan because compound interest is involved.

    As we know this can be a somewhat complicated subject to explain and quantify for each individual loan we offer, we’ve made sure that our advisors at each Everyday Loans branch are capable of breaking it down with minimal jargon. Less hassle helps and makes it easier to secure your loan for your car.

  • Q3: Will my credit score go up when I take a loan?

    It might do, but this isn’t as a result of just being accepted for a loan. As we touched on before, a credit score is basically an indicator of how financially responsible you have been in the past. Lenders use this to get an idea of how likely you are to safely make repayments in future. The good news? If you do make your repayments and complete your car loan on time, you will see an increase. This can benefit you in future in other situations where a credit check is needed.

  • Q4: Is it OK to use an Everyday Loans loan for a car?

    Absolutely! We cater specifically for people with poorer credit scores and our excellent loans are perfectly fine for obtaining credit to pay for a car or to repair one, particularly if you’ve found it hard to find a loan elsewhere.

It’s a simple process and the money can be with you shortly after your meeting is complete.
