Cheap Car Finance At Your Fingertips

Apr 20, 2008
Cheap car finance is more readily available to British consumers than ever. Bank of England base rates have been lowered and many lenders are passing on the savings to the consumer market. Additionally, the consumer loan market is much more competitive because of the growth of loan brokers, many of whom operate through online web sites. Consumers can easily access car loan products and rates by visiting a web site and sharing a small amount of information. The loan broker looks through their vast provider network and product portfolio to offer the best loan products and rates for any buyer.

Surveys have shown that car dealer financing, which many Brits have relied on, can cost well over 1,000 pounds more than lender financing. Unfortunately, many inexperienced car buyers approach a dealer to buy a car and end up taking on dealer financing before they have time to stop and think about it. Dealers are very aggressive about selling loans at the point of sale in order to complete the car transaction. The biggest mistake consumers make is to go to the dealership unprepared with a loan plan. This lack of loan foresight puts consumers more at risk of being talked in a more expensive finance option.

Cheap car finance can make the car value much greater. Even a per cent or two improvement in the annual percentage rate (APR) of a loan can reduce monthly loan payments and save lots of cash over the life of the loan. It can make monthly budgeting and fiscal management much less stressful. Cheap car finance can also reduce debt reliance that could potentially affect credit scores or the ability to take on other type so of debt.

Car loans are definitely not as glamorous to buy as the car itself, but carefully exploring options can make the long-term enjoyment from the car better. Loan broker are very customer-oriented and extremely easy to work with. Most motor loan specialists have specific expectations and requirements for lenders they work with. This ability to work with the lender network helps brokers offer the best products and rates for customers. Even bad credit borrowers can find great loan options by working with an independent broker. Excellent credit borrowers are seeing APR as low as 7 to 8 per cent in the current market. This is a great finance market for people considering a new or used car purchase.

Cheap car finance is more than just the best rate. Manageable monthly payments are important too. Monthly payments are based on the interest rate and the loan repayment period. Typical motor loan repayment periods range from 36 to 72 months. Shorter repayment terms mean the debt is paid more quickly. Longer repayment timeframes offer budget-conscious customers more manageable monthly payments. The most crucial step for any car buyer is to become more informed about their product options and loan rates before approaching the dealer. This makes him more prepared to combat pressure tactics or selling techniques that could result in more expensive financing.
