When it comes to securing the right car finance deals for your new or second hand car then you will get the best deal if you put it into the hands of a specialist. A specialist will have the advantage over you of knowing where to look for the cheapest loans and will deliver quotes to you in a far shorter time than it would take for you to find them yourself.
Any loan can be confusing so it can be hard to determine if you are getting the best deal. When making comparisons yourself, there are many different types of car finance and a specialist broker will make sure they compare variable rates against variable, and fixed against fixed. They will also highlight to you any hidden extra costs that are included in a loan and make you aware of any charges that might apply on the car finance deals.
The actual quotes that you are given if you shop around yourself can lead to confusion as some car finance deals will give you quotes for weekly repayments, some for monthly, and quotes this way can seem to be great deals but are far from it if the interest rate charged is taken into account over the course of a year.
One of the main things that can boost up the cost of even the best car finance deals is the addition of what is called payment protection insurance. While it does protect your car finance repayments if you were to become unable to work due to long term sickness, accident or unforeseen redundancy, it can and more often than not does boost up the cost of even the best car finance deals quite considerably unless you shop around for that cover too. Always make sure that the quotes for car finance don’t have payment protection included when comparing them as this will distort the true figure of the cost of the car loan.
The best car finance deals can take some searching out but by going with a specialist you can be assured that they will have used their experience to secure you the cheapest deal on your car finance while ensuring that you known exactly how much the loan is going to cost over the full term.
