What Is A Car Finance Broker And Why Would You Use One?
What is a car finance broker?
A broker by definition is ‘an independent party’ who ‘arranges something such as a deal or agreement between two (or more) groups’.
For example, it’s common practice when purchasing a property to use an intermediary such as an Independent Financial Adviser or a Mortgage Broker to arrange your mortgage. It’s widely understood that by using a broker, you can fit the right financial product to your circumstances more efficiently than by going straight to the bank or building society.
At Oracle, the concept is no different. As a broker we work on your behalf to find the best finance option for you by acting as the middle man between you and the car finance provider. All you have to do is pick your dream car! From the application to organising the paperwork, your Account Manager will do it all.
Why use a broker?
By sourcing the perfect finance package bespoke to you and your circumstances with a lender on your behalf, we take all the hassle out of the whole process. The team will use their expert knowledge of the car and finance industry to tailor the right car finance product for you and the vehicle you are purchasing. At Oracle, our dedicated Account Managers make the experience as easy as possible and keep you informed every step of the way. Their expertise means that from the moment you start to look for a new car right through to having the finance in place, your dedicated Account Manager takes care of everything on your behalf.
You wouldn’t expect an estate agent to provide you with a mortgage quote, and you should follow the same principle when buying a car. The car dealership (or private seller) doesn’t have the same breadth of knowledge of expertise, or even the ability to access a panel of over 20 lenders to choose from, to give you choice and flexibility when it comes to finance products. Dealerships more often that not are tied to their own finance product, or usually a single lender, who offer a ‘one size fits all’ option that is designed to suit the majority of people, not be adjustable to fit different circumstances.
