Car Finance for Taxi Drivers

As a taxi driver you want a vehicle that’s not only reliable and economical, it also has to be modern and comfortable – finding the right car itself is hard enough. Buying the right car to use as a taxi is often a big investment and therefore finding affordable finance can be vital.

But, ask any private hire driver about it and they’ll tell you that getting car finance for a taxi can be a total nightmare. Buying a taxi on finance just isn’t as simple as buying a car for personal use and finance companies are wary when it comes to lending to taxi drivers.

Taxi drivers can rack up extremely high mileage and their vehicles are obviously under constant wear and tear. This can drastically lower the future resale value of the car, which is the main reason that a lot of lenders simply don’t offer car finance for taxi drivers.

When you also take into account the fact that a taxi driver’s income may not be guaranteed, or can fluctuate from one month to the next, it starts to become a little clearer as to why finding a lender isn’t always so straightforward.
