Financing your purchase – Frequently Asked Questions
Who Are We?
- ESSEX AUTOMOTIVE LTD. Company registration number –6984403 . Our registered address is –39 CANEWDON VIEW ROAD ROCHFORD ESSEX SS4 3DT
What can we do to help finance your purchase?
- We are authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority for credit brokerage. Our FCA number is 667288.
ESSEX AUTOMOTIVE LTD is a credit broker, not a lender. We can introduce you to a limited group of carefully
selected credit providers who may be able to offer you finance for your purchase. Each credit provider
may have different interest rates and charges. We do not charge you a fee for our services.
Rates will be either fixed based on the lender or based on your credit score.
Credit score-based rates are pre-set, but are also linked to your individual credit rating. Typically, the higher your credit score, the lower the APR you will receive from a credit provider.
Fixed rates are determined by our contractual agreements and we cannot change this rate.
We are only able to offer a range of finance products from these providers, which may be suitable for you and we will explain the key features of these products to you.
We will receive payment from the credit provider for introducing you to them. The amount of commission received could vary by credit provider, which may be a higher amount in relation to certain products compared with other products available.
The credit providers we work with will pay commission at different rates. However, the amount of commission that we receive does not have an effect on the amount that you pay to the lender under your credit agreement.
Can we give you independent financial advice?
We are NOT independent financial advisors and are unable to give you independent financial advice. We will provide details of the products available from the credit providers that we work with, but no advice or recommendation will be made. You must decide whether the finance product is right for you.
