One you’ve found the best car finance deals, filled in your loan application, and know exactly how much you can borrow, it will be time to start looking for the best car for you. We won’t restrict you to any particular dealers; you will be welcome to choose from any reputable UK dealer, giving you the freedom and flexibility to choose the right car to suit your needs.
But with so much choice, it can be difficult to make a decision. Here is a rundown of some of the key considerations…
It goes without saying that cars well-known for retaining value make for the best long-term investments – whether your finance deal is based on a calculated Guaranteed Minimum Future Value, or you plan on taking legal ownership of your car at the end of the agreement. Some of the best brands for retaining value are Mini, Audi, Ford, Volkswagen, Vauxhaull and Kia, which means that whether you’re looking for a city car, something sporty, or need space for a growing family, you should be able to find a good investment with strong long-term value.
The day-to-day running cost of a car is also an important factor to consider. Some of the top cars for both retaining value and low running costs are the Kia Picanto 1.1, the Vauxhaull Corsa 1.4 EcoFLEX, and the Volkswagen uP! 1.0.
Knowing when and where to look for bargains makes a big difference to the cost of financing a new car. Obviously, you will be likely to find better deals on convertibles in the autumn and winter, but there are other ways to find cheap car finance deals throughout the year.
Since dealers often work to quarterly-based targets, the best deals can often be found around the end of March, June, September and December – but don’t leave it to the last day, when targets may have been met. Dealers often hold Boxing Day sales, and also sell fewer cars in January, which means more opportunities to bargain.
What’s more, since it takes only a few minutes to apply for car finance deals through Car Finance Giant, the deals won’t pass you by. Once your finance has been guaranteed, you will be free to arrange collection of your chosen car – even on the same day.
