Can you get guaranteed van finance with bad credit?

Everyone’s circumstances are different, and buying a van on finance is a big decision to make. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to finance. Lenders have the final say over whether someone is approved for van finance with bad credit and a responsible lender will never say that it is guaranteed.

Whether or not you are eligible depends on several factors, including credit history and affordability. Van finance will only be offered once the appropriate checks are done on an application. 

So, if you ever see this claim being made, you should act with caution. Picking a reputable finance company is important, so don’t rush your decision. Make sure to research the lender and understand what checks are made before making any applications.
