Providing Vehicle Financing Options

A large majority of car buyers now require vehicle finance to be able to secure their dream car, that is why it is becoming more and more important to offer live finance options on your website. Depending on the finance package you choose, Hire Purchase (HP), Lease Purchase (LP) and/or Personal Contact Plan (PCP) can be displayed on each vehicle on the stock list as well as the vehicle details page.

Depending on the finance option you choose, the quote will then be sent to you or directly to your chosen third party finance company.

Whether you choose Starkwood finance or a third party finance system, we have a search feature that allows the customer to adjust the term, deposit, annual mileage and monthly budget to suit their needs.


65%

of top 200 dealer groups now offer online finance


This automatically updates the finance offer attached to each vehicle, giving them a monthly payment figure matching their chosen criteria so the customer can customise their quote before completing a secure finance application form.

A financial disclaimer and full representative examples are shown on all pages where finance offers are displayed to ensure that your website is FCA compliant.

Starkwood or Third Party?

The choice is completely up to you, with our finance you can change the finance packages instantly through Autohub.

With Third Party finance all forms will be sent directly to your finance provider saving you time and effort at the sacrifice of complete immediate control.

The Starkwood Finance system allows you to upload your own rates and criteria through our easy to use Autohub stock management system. You can create as many finance offers as you wish, each having its own rate and rules to determine which vehicles it will apply to.

Each finance offer you create has defaults for deposit as either a fixed amount or percentage of the sale price, as well as the initial repayment term. You can even enter set up, spread or final payment fees.

Some customisable rules include:

  • Maximum / minimum vehicle age at start and end of loan.
  • Maximum / minimum sale price.
  • Maximum / minimum loan amount.
  • Maximum / minimum repayment term.
  • Minimum deposit amount or percentage.

Our advanced multi-stage finance application form will send you part completed applications with customer contact details for you to follow up those not confident enough to complete the process online.


We work closely with Codeweavers, iVendi and Evolution Funding who provide leading motor finance solutions for automotive websites. They provide a secure and simple process where the application is sent straight to your finance provider to be approved.

For each dealer they supply a range of videos explaining the different types of finance that are available and the benefits of getting finance direct from the dealer. There are also systems available for customers to check their credit rating before filling out the application.
