Auction finance

Arranging pre-approved auction finance with us will give you every chance of success

Bidding at a car auction can be stressful, but not if you’ve already secured your finance through us. We can talk you through your options in advance and create a flexible and highly competitive finance package, just for you.

We lend direct – we are not a broker – which means we assess every car (and of course its owner) we finance individually. And if time is of the essence, we’ll give you a quick decision and pre-approve funds, making them immediately available once your bid is successful. Get head of your rival bidders by calling us now on 020 3355 0035.

  • Equity release: we can offer equity release against your existing vehicles, releasing tied-up funds that will enable you to make another purchase or upgrade. See how equity release can work for you.
  • Refinance: if you have existing finance agreements we can take them over and arrange bespoke terms to fit your exact circumstances. Find out more about how to refinance your current vehicle.
  • Quick decision: most of our customers get the go-ahead on their finance within a week.
