Previous bad credit
"We are actually good, honest, hardworking people but were in a bind due to a faulty car we bought and some previous bad decisions we made.
When we went bankrupt nearly 4 years ago we never thought that we would be able to get any credit in the future.
We had been knocked back for little loans including internet providers, but when we needed a new car we found Ume Loans. They gave us the second chance that we needed when no one else would even look at us.
Since being with them we have acquired 2 cars and a Harley Davidson, Ume Loans have even helped us to refinance twice and because we are always on time with our repayments we have had our interest rate decreased.
I highly recommend letting Ume Loans see what they can do for anyone that is in need of a second chance and doesn't have a very good credit history because they are there to help you."

Ume loans finance all types of vehicles, from new and used motor vehicles to leisure vehicles like caravans, boats and jetski's. Below are just some of the product types we finance.
Most of our customers are simply unable to obtain a low interest rate loan due to something unfortunate in their individual circumstances meaning they can’t meet the terms and conditions required for a traditional loan. It could be bad credit from a business or marriage failure, it could be loss of employment or a health issue that caused a financial problem in the past. At Ume Loans we take the time to assess your current circumstances and just because you don’t qualify for a low interest rate bank loan doesn’t mean you can’t get a loan with us. But, please understand that giving people a financial second chance means we take more customer risk and therefore need to charge higher interest rates. This disclaimer explains this to you.
