heycar is continuing its drive to give customers more control of their online car-buying journey – by partnering with global information services company Experian.
The new service aims to eliminate some of the stress and uncertainty that comes with purchasing a car – by allowing customers to find available car finance deals and checking their likelihood to get approved for finance without harming their credit score, so they can buy the right car in the way that works for them.
It’s part of heycar’s ongoing commitment to providing its customers with all the resources they require to complete the majority of their car-buying journey seamlessly online before visiting a dealership.
Brook Bishop, Head of Strategy at heycar comments: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Experian, a highly credible industry leader and trusted provider of credit checks and financial services.
“Their expertise provides our customers with a really powerful tool that allows them to make even more informed decisions as they seek to complete even more of their car-buying journey online.
“We’re proud to be driving change in the marketplace which allows us to provide our network of dealerships with ever more high quality leads.
“This is the next step in realising our wider e-commerce strategy, which we’re working on with multiple partners.”
Gerardo Montoya, Managing Director of Automotive at Experian, adds: “Many people find talking about finance to be the ‘awkward’ part of buying a car. We’ve worked with heycar to help people find out what finance deals they are eligible for without affecting their credit score so that they can browse and buy with confidence.
