The finance products we use

As a Financial Conduct Authority regulated credit broker, we may introduce you to a range of finance providers who may be able to help you finance your vehicle and provide other products/services such as service and maintenance packages.
We will only offer products from a carefully selected panel of finance providers. We will not refer you outside of this panel of providers without your consent. You can ask us for a full list of the suppliers who provide our finance and insurance products. All our products are optional.
We may receive a commission or other benefits from one of our finance providers should you decide to enter into an agreement with them as a result of our introduction or, from another credit broker to whom we refer you should we be unable to arrange funding for you. This is reflected in the monthly lease rate that you pay for your vehicle. The amount of commission received may vary depending on the funder selected, the terms of the funding and other criteria, such as achieving high levels of customer service. Some funders may also pay us an additional commission based on achieving certain key performance indicators. If you would like further information on the disclosure of commissions, please email 

Which service will we provide you with?

We will provide you with either comparable details of firms most appropriate to your funding requirements, or general information relating to finance products.

To assist us in assessing your demands and needs we may seek information about your personal circumstances and objectives which may be relevant, in order to enable us to identify your requirements. It is important that you provide us with accurate and relevant information.

What will you have to pay us for our services?

U.K. Carline Limited charge a fee for our credit broking services.

Processing Fee:- We charge a processing fee of £195.00 exclusive VAT for our services.

The processing fee is payable by debit or credit card or by BACs payment and is taken once finance approval has been received, along with all relevant paperwork signed by yourself instructing us to place an order on your behalf.

Administration Fee:- For certain agreements, we may also charge an additional administration fee for our services.

The administration fee is payable by debit or credit card or by BACs payment and is taken once finance approval has been received, along with all relevant paperwork signed by yourself instructing us to place an order on your behalf.
However, some of our lenders may charge an administration fee to set up your agreement. We may receive a commission or other benefits from finance providers should you decide to enter into an agreement with the finance provider that we have introduced you to.

Confidentiality & Data Protection

As part of the process of obtaining finance for your vehicle we will need to pass your details on to one or more of our finance partners. A list of these partners together with their FCA firm reference numbers are available on request. Any organisation approached to arrange credit will need to undertake credit search with a credit reference agency which may affect your credit rating. All our calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
