Working in strategic partnership with Aston Barclay, which has an extensive range of products and services, the V12 Vehicle Finance hub provides everything dealers need to sell more used cars and vans, more often – from sourcing and funding wholesale stock, through valuing and underwriting part‐exchanges, to financing a customer’s vehicle and managing its in‐life costs.
Helping dealers source, fund and stock more used cars and vans
The Aston Barclay stock funding plan, powered by V12 Vehicle Finance, enables dealers to source and fund used cars and vans via physical and digital auctions. The plan offers a single vehicle funded value ceiling of £50,000 for our independent dealer plan and £65,000 for our franchised dealer plan, a minimum funded value of £1,500 applies. Both offer financing up to 120 days.
With the simple press of a button on the Aston Barclay Buyers App, dealers can add vehicles to their stock funding plan, providing the convenience to easily replenish used vehicle forecourts. V12 Vehicle Finance will fund 100% of the auction hammer price of a car or van up to 3.6 tonnes including the usual auction and vehicle delivery charges. VAT can also be fully funded on vans. As an added convenience, costs associated with Aston Barclay Enhanced, a smart repair and refurbishment service can be added to the loan up to 10% of vehicle hammer price, capped at £1,000.
V12 Vehicle Finance welcomes working with dealers who stock electric cars, hybrids and vans. All vehicles can be funded up to 15 years of age providing the mileage is less than 120,000 miles at the start of the funding period. Classic cars, motorhomes, modified vehicles or other vehicle types are excluded.
