Company directors

It’s easy for personal debt or poor credit history to get tangled in your business’ affairs. Your Car Choice knows how to tackle this, so you’re free to finance a fleet of vehicles …

When barriers are raised, we knock them down

Unfortunately, you may be denied the cash you need, simply because your own credit history gets called into question. But our experts take the wheel to find a solution that gets you access to affordable business vehicles – such as cars and vans – that are vital to your organisation’s growth.

Some providers turn their nose up at a director’s adverse credit rating, which (in their eyes) can suggest that your company will not be able to make the lease payments. Yet that shouldn’t block your path to the vehicle or vehicles you need. The company’s finances should be assessed on their own terms.

Our network of lenders, on the other hand, takes a much kinder view. Your Car Choice removes the focus on your personal situation and clears a path to a corporate vehicle lease. We’ll deal with a lending panel on your behalf, avoiding any sub-prime deals to keep you safe from a high-rate agreement.

In some cases, we can provide more context to your own credit, or advise on caring for the fleet itself. We adapt to your requirements. Most importantly, we’re discreet and committed to providing you with a suitable leasing contract.

Business in need of a vehicle lease but the director has bad credit?

If your looking for a business vehicle lease your directors poor credit can hinder the process. It can leave you unsure what to do. You may be uncertain whether to go for a purchase contract or a traditional leasing model?

We’ve compiled a couple of questions that should answer the basics. They cover funding, how we work, and what you can expect from a leasing agreement.

You can always read one of our Fully committed company case studies to give you greater peace of mind.

Most of our funders class a “New Start” company by one that has been trading for less than 12 calendar months, and is a registered limited company.

A low or negative net worth will relate to a weaker financial strength and a lower credit rating, thus directly affecting the individual’s or the company’s ability to raise funds from the market.

We manage fleets of all different shapes and sizes. From small fleets of vans for a tradesperson, to a large fleet of 50 cars and vans for large multinational companies. Once we’ve completed our FREE fleet consultation we can then look at how we can maximise the potential of your existing fleet.

You will know if you’re “fully committed” to another finance company as an extra request for vehicles has been denied. We have the widest variety of funders so can offer people who are fully-committed another route to finance.

“Sub-Prime” refers to a particular type of lending. Someone who may be referred to as a “sub-prime borrower” is a person with either one or all of the following permutations; a poor credit score, CCJ’s (County Court Judgements) or someone who has missed payments on other financial agreements such as credit cards, store card or a mortgage etc. Sub-prime borrowers are more of a risk to finance houses, and the cost of borrowing is usually a lot higher for someone classed as “sub-prime”.
