Buying a brand-new or used car is often a serious investment. It can be tempting to offset costs by opting for a car finance agreement that guarantees astonishingly low interest rates.
However, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is! In reality, finance companies can't promise low rate car finance for all applicants. This is because they’re calculated based on individual credit scores and circumstances.
How are interest rates calculated?
So, shiny promises aside, how is car finance interest calculated? The outcome depends on many variables, including a person’s credit history, income, desired vehicle model and deposit.
Without a doubt, a person’s credit score is the most significant factor. This is a rating everyone has based on their financial history. This rating helps lenders to determine potential risk, interest rates and credit limits. It’s used to gauge someone’s trustworthiness and likelihood to pay back instalments. A good credit score increases your chances of securing a lower interest rate and overall monthly repayments.
However, at My Car Credit, we understand that unforeseen circumstances can impact a person’s credit rating through no fault of their own. This is why we’re open to accepting applications from people with less than perfect financial backgrounds.
If you’d like to improve your chances of securing finance, there are plenty of simple ways to bolster your rating and generate more favourable interest rates before applying.
