Initial Disclosure

We will provide you with either comparable details of companies most appropriate to your lending or purchase requirements or general information relating to finance products. In assessing your requirements, we may seek such information about your personal circumstances and objectives as might be relevant in order to enable us to identify your needs. It is important that you provide us with accurate and relevant information.

As a Financial Conduct Authority regulated credit broker, we can introduce you to a range of lenders who may be able to help you finance your vehicle and provide other products/services.

We do not charge fees for our broker related services. We are a commission and fee based organisation which means that we may receive a payment(s) or other benefits from finance providers should you decide to enter into an agreement with us. These commissions may be variable or pre-set dependent onthe product and the volume that we place with the chosen supplier. The commission we earn does not influence our decision on who we introduce you to. The amount of commission received will be reflected in the amount you pay.

We may, however, charge a cancellation fee, up to the value of the initial rental + VAT for services already provided. (The cancellation fee will be payable upon receipt of our invoice within our payment terms).
