Frequently asked questions

When you check your eligibility we consult multiple lenders to see if you are eligible for any of their leasing offers. We work with specialist lenders and are able to offer Personal Contract Hire (leasing) on both new and used cars. There is no impact on your credit score from checking your eligibility so we would always suggest seeing what you are eligible for. There does come a time in the leasing journey when we would need to run a hard credit check but this happens when you proceed to lease a vehicle or if you’re looking to get a finance approval from specific lenders. This would only happen after you have completed the form.

You can click here to get started and fill out our simple application form. It only takes a few minutes and won’t have any impact on your credit score. If you’re eligible we will guide you through every step of the way and discuss your options with you. You can read more about how our process might impact your credit score in an FAQ below.

We don’t know until we look. Having CCJs or being in an IVA doesn’t automatically exclude you from being able to lease a car but it can make it less likely. Our application process only takes a few minutes and we recommend completing the form so we can give you an answer based on your particular circumstances.

You can apply for leasing without impacting your credit score because our initial process only uses a soft credit check. If you decide to lease a car, or if you want to check an approval with certain funders, then a hard credit check will occur. Also, leasing a car is a form of credit and will show up on your credit profile.
