What our customers say

We asked people to tell us what the Scheme means to them, in three words.

My vehicle is my independence and without it, I wouldn’t be able to do half the stuff that I do. It’s a really important, key thing in my life to help me get out there.

Jaiquane, car customer

It made my life so much easier to have the vehicle that I needed. To get it through the Scheme was brilliant, because it takes away all the hassle and the worry.
