Running your own business shouldn’t mean having to run around looking for finance approval.

Being your own boss can bring various challenges and searching for a finance approval shouldn’t be one of them. Callum is one of our customers who was finding it challenging to secure finance for his van. Learn more about his motor finance journey with us.

Our customer story

Callum is married with two children, lives in Co. Donegal and has been a self-employed carpenter since 2021. In January 2023 Callum needed to purchase a van for his business, but was unsure as to whether he’d be approved for finance as he has only been trading for just over 12 months and although he has some good credit history he has also experienced previous issues with a credit card.

Our response:

At Bluestone, we understand how much you need to believe in yourself to become self-employed and we believe in you too.

There are an increasing number of entrepreneurs and people opting to become self-employed. So rather than making it difficult to access a motor loan, we take a commonsense approach – Helping self-employed customers with just 12 months’ trading history.

Callum had a deposit of €2,250 and was able to provide us with his bank statements and revenue document. Once reviewed by our skilled underwriting team, he was approved for €14,500 in less than 30 minutes. As a result, Callum is now out and about, driving his new Ford Transit Van and expanding his business.

If you’re self-employed and are looking for a new car or van find out how to apply or contact us for more information.
