Tips on applying for finance

When it comes to financing a car or van, the majority of people do need to borrow some or all of the money to make their plans a reality.

Before applying for finance, it is important to consider what you can afford on a monthly basis and your credit status.

In all circumstances:

  • Take time to understand the car finance options available to you
  • Be realistic on your monthly budget
  • Read all the paperwork to understand the terms and conditions
  • Assess lender reviews such as those available on Trustpilot
  • Prepare any evidence that may be required such as proofs of address and income
  • Avoid multiple credit applications – it can weaken your credit rating
  • Be honest with the lender
  • And finally, if you don’t know, ask questions, reputable lenders like Bluestone will always seek to provide answers transparently!

Helping People with a Complex or Limited Credit History

Building on our tips on applying for finance, we have put together some extra guidance for people who might find accessing finance more complex. We help people with this type of profile regularly, so, don't give up, we may be able to provide you with a finance approval for that car or van!

People who have never used credit previously
People who have moved to Ireland recently
People who have experienced life events that may have had an adverse impact on their finances

If you believe this type of profile matches you, then you should prepare carefully before applying for finance.

  • Gather income evidence, including payslips and bank statements
  • Ensure you have information on residential status if you have moved to Ireland for work
  • Pull together your recent bank statements

Above these, talk to a lender, such as Bluestone, early in the process for help and guidance – We’re here to help.
