If you get approved, adjustments can be made to your approval to suit the car you do chose to purchase.
Have good bank statements
It goes without saying, but if your bank statements aren’t strong, then your chances of getting finance are reduced. Make sure to have a healthy, sustained balance at the end of each month. It’s important to show that you’re responsible with your income so that lenders can see you have the ability to make repayments.
Live within your means
Having good bank statements is a given, but living within your means shows lenders a responsibility that may improve your chances of getting finance. Basically, don’t spend more than you bring in!
