How to Get a Settlement Quote on Car Finance

Car Finance Early Settlement Figure

Sell your car with webuyanycar.com and we'll be able to help you settle any car finance outstanding and give you the remainder (if there is any) in cash straight into your bank.

Don’t forget, with a HP or PCP agreement you have to settle the finance on the car or terminate the agreement by paying off money owing before you can sell the car on.  At webuyanycar.com we can help you do this.

How do I get a settlement figure on my car finance?

All you have to do is get in touch with your finance company and ask them for a “settlement figure”.

By law your lender has to post a settlement figure to you within 12 days – most times it comes straight away.

You will have a period – usually 10 days – in which to actually pay the amount off. If you pay by Direct Debit (DD), check the day it normally comes out of your bank – if they receive this amount before you settle the finance then you’ll need to take the DD amount off the amount you pay. You will need to provide evidence of payment to us if this is the case.
