Can I lease a van with bad credit?
If you have bad credit, you can still be considered for a van lease. However, your credit score will affect your monthly payments, which will be a little bit higher. We can offer a soft credit check before approval, which won't affect your credit score.
Do you do credit checks at any point?
Whatever financial agreement you wish to apply for, it will always require a credit check. A soft credit check will be done first of all, as this has no impact on your credit score. You can then see which lender is best for you, as well as allowing ourselves to see if you would be accepted for a credit agreement.
