Providing finance for you

We can introduce you (whether directly or via a specialist credit broker) to a selection of finance companies (funders) who may be able to finance your transaction.

There are other finance providers to who we cannot introduce you which may also be able to offer you finance.

We will provide you with information and explanations about the motorhome finance products that may be available to you. Where we recommend a product to you, we will ensure that this is based on the information you give to us about your needs and circumstances so that it is suitable for you.

Finance is arranged subject to status and terms and conditions; we cannot guarantee that we will be able to secure motorhome finance for you.

Independent financial advice

We are not independent financial advisors and so are unable to provide you with independent financial advice; we are, however, independent of the funders and brokers we work with.

Payment for our services and commissions

You don’t have to pay us for our service, but a funder or broker may pay us for introducing you to them. Different funders or brokers may pay us different amounts, but it will typically be based on a fixed percentage of the amount borrowed.

This percentage may vary according to different factors, for example the amount of credit; the age or type of vehicle; the type of finance product; the funder’s assessment of the risk of lending.

For your reassurance, we are not able to change the interest rate you pay in order to receive more commission from a particular funder or broker.

Although rates and commissions may vary between our finance partners, our aim is always to secure finance from them that is appropriate to your circumstances. If we are successful in obtaining an offer of motorhome finance for you and you would like to know the amount (or likely amount) we would receive if you decide to go ahead with the agreement and how that amount has been calculated, please contact us using the details above.

Use of information

We will use your information (in order) to obtain quotes from funders and brokers to process finance applications through them.

We or they may also conduct a search of your record held by one or more credit reference agencies. Credit checks may, as a result, appear on your credit file lodged by organisations with whom you have not dealt directly.

The personal information collected will also be shared with fraud prevention agencies who will use it to prevent fraud and money laundering and to verify your identity. If fraud is detected, you could be refused certain services, finance or employment.

Further details of how your information will be used by us, funders and fraud prevention agencies and your data rights can be found here:

Finance proposals

Before we make a finance proposal on your behalf, we will ask you some questions to help us determine your suitability for our hire purchase finance product and term of the motorhome loan.

We will ask for information regarding your employment status, income, current financial standing and status, existing loans or finance agreements and whether or not you foresee any changes in your personal circumstances that would affect a potential lenders decision making.

If our staff feel that you are seeking finance under duress or that you may be vulnerable, they will disclose this information to potential lenders.

We will ask you to sign a consent form, which will also contain details of your answers to our questions, the financial product we have discussed and the term of the loan.

The consent form gives us your permission to pass-on your personal information and make a finance proposal on your behalf. This document also gives your consent to the potential lender/s to complete all and any checks they require to arrive at a decision as per the above section entitled “Use of information”.
