About the employer

Carfinance247 was founded by brothers Reg and Louis Rix in 2006, and is a privately owned business based in central Manchester, offering a wide range of car finance products.

A future in the motor industry was always on the cards for us, with our father having established and run Rix Motor Company for over 20 years and not to mention our grandfather who was a well-known car trader in the North West.

When we established our first online car classified business (which was later sold to the RAC), we discovered that consumers were having difficulty finding suitable financing options to buy their next car.

At that point, the idea of Carfinance247 was born. We simply wanted to offer car finance nationwide and we embraced the power of the internet to achieve our goals.

Today we are experiencing explosive growth by providing market leading rates and giving customers the choice and service they deserve.
