  • "Mr Erol from Kismet Wholesale in Lewisham, approached us seeking finance for a vehicle, as his vehicle was not ULEZ compliant. The business was in need of a van within the next 48 hours due to outstanding deliveries for vegetable and wholesale products. We had managed to secure the funding within the same day due to the customers outstanding accounts. We managed to source them with funding via a very good lender Investec Asset Finance PLC. Who were happy to lend on a Hire purchase agreement with deposits as little as 10%. By funding this vehicle, we managed to secure the business with charges for not being ULEZ compliant and also reduce their fuel costs. "


    Do I need to pay a deposit?
    Not generally. Many of our customers opt to pay a 10% deposit, but there is no obligation by most lenders.
    Do I need to choose the vehicle first?
    Ideally, yes, as this makes the application process quicker and easier. However, if you know roughly the type of vehicle (make and model) but haven’t yet found an available vehicle to purchase, then we can work with that and update your agreement once your ideal vehicle has been found.
    Can I get van finance if I am a start-up?
    Yes, you can! It can really strengthen your application if you already have a good personal credit score, evidence in your industry, and can show you already have contracts or orders lined up to provide you with a predictable income. Being able to show you can afford the monthly repayments for the duration of the loan is also important.
    Can I get van finance if I’m self employed?

    This really depends on your company’s legal status. Generally our lenders are tightening their belts with Sole Traders, but we will be happy to take a look to see which lenders will be happy to lend to the business.

    What are the interest rates?

    The interest rates are currently fluctuating more than normal due to instability in the economy and to reflect Bank of England base rate rises. Currently, we are able to secure funding from around 6% and up depending on the individual requirement and circumstances, but please contact us before making any commitments so that we can provide you with an accurate and personalised quotation.

    How quickly will my application be processed?

    We know how important it can be to secure funding fast; especially when purchasing a vehicle for business use. Therefore, in many cases we are able to offer same day business finance. We would recommend you contact us before midday to maximise our ability to complete your application within that time frame.

    Can I use my company van for personal use?

    Generally speaking, from a finance perspective, yes, you can. However, there may be other factors to consider such as whether your van insurance permits this.
