About our Finance Services

We are a credit broker and not a lender.  We can introduce you to a limited number of lenders and their finance products.  We are not an independent financial advisor. We may advise you on the products, subject to your personal circumstances, though you are not obliged to take our advice or recommendation.  You must decide whether the finance product is right for you.

We do not charge you a fee for our services. Whichever lender we introduce you to, we will typically receive commission from them either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow.

For your reassurance, all of the lenders we work with could pay commission at different rates, but the commission we receive does not influence the interest rate you will pay. Our aim is to secure finance for you at the lowest interest rate you are eligible for from our panel of lenders.

If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed.

About our Insurance Services

We offer the following insurance products:-

GAP - Guaranteed Asset Protection (Also known as RTI and Total loss Cover) 

We do not charge fees for arranging insurance. We will typically receive an economic benefit or retain a part of any premium by way of remuneration.  Our sales agents will also typically be remunerated on the sale of individual insurance products.

Financial Services Compensation Scheme

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim.

Insurance advising and arranging is covered for the first £2,000 and 90% of the remainder of the claim without any upper limit.

Further information about the compensation scheme is available from the FSCS website.

The Motor Ombudsman is the automotive dispute resolution body. Fully-impartial, it is the first ombudsman to be focused solely on the automotive sector, and self-regulates the UK’s motor industry through its comprehensive Chartered Trading (CTSI)-approved Codes of Practice.

Thousands of businesses, including vehicle manufacturers, warranty product providers, franchised dealers and independent garages, are accredited to one or more of the Codes, which drive even higher standards of work and service, and give consumers added protection, peace of mind and trust during the vehicle purchase and ownership experience.
