Whether you’re worried about CCJs or mortgage arrears, the fact that you’ve not built up a credit history yet, or work for yourself, we’ll help take away the guesswork. Simply enter your details into our online application to get started and find out if you’re eligible for car finance today.

How applying with Zuto works

Making an application with Zuto couldn’t be easier. Each field or question on our form will take you step by step through the same process a member of our team would on the phone.

After entering that you want to buy a car, the form will ask you how much you want to borrow. You don’t need to know exactly how much, but we’ll need a rough idea before we can let you know whether you’re eligible for car finance. There’s a big difference between borrowing £1,000 and borrowing £10,000, so just try to be as accurate as you can.

Once you’ve entered all of the details required, we’ll do the rest. By automatically checking your application against the criteria of our panel of lenders, you will be told whether you’re eligible or not. Our system does it all without connecting with lender systems as a formal application, which means it won’t show up on your credit score down the line. If you are eligible, then you’re free to pick from any one of the quotes we’ve pulled together for you and if you do decide to proceed with the offer, we will need to run a hard search on your credit file but we will gain your consent beforehand.
