services. The FCA require us to provide you with a document called an ‘Initial
Disclosure Document’. This document provides information about us, the products
we offer, the services we will provide, what we charge for our services, who
regulates us and what to do if you have a complaint.

Conduct Authority FRN 951828. You can check this on the FCA’s website or by contacting the FCA on 0300 500 8082.
Treating Customers Fairly.
Our business is committed to treating our customers fairly and ensuring our products
and services are suitable for their needs. Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) is a core
part of our culture and philosophy and you can review our commitment to it by asking
for a copy of our TCF policy statement.
Which service will we provide you with?
We offer a non-advised service, meaning we cannot give you advice or a
recommendation. We can introduce you to a number of lenders who may be able to
help finance your vehicle.
This group of lenders provides us with a range of products that may be suitable for
your vehicle purchase or leasing requirements.
We will explain the key features of those products to you and make a
recommendation based on the affordability which is suitable for your demands and
needs at the time it is made.
We are not Independent Financial Advisers and so are unable to provide you with
Independent financial advice. There are also other sources of finance which you may
wish to investigate.
What products do we offer?
We can introduce you to a limited number of lenders who may be able to finance
your purchase. We will only introduce you to these lenders. We would advise you to
review these products to ensure you are satisfied that the product you have chosen
meets your requirements. Warwick Car Sales Limited is a credit broker not a lender.
Other Finance Facilities.
You may be able to obtain finance for your purchase from other lenders and you are
encouraged to seek alternative quotations and details of their products by
researching on the high street, in the media and online.
Our Insurance Services.
At present we do not offer any insurance products.
What will you have to pay us for our services?
You will not make any payment to us for any introductions we make to finance
providers regarding finance facilities to fund your purchase.
Commission Disclosure.
We may receive a commission payment from the finance provider if you decide to
enter into an agreement with them.
The nature of this commission is as follows: we receive a commission based on a
percentage of the total amount of finance taken by the customer.
You can request for us to disclose the amount of any commission received.
All the lenders that we work with pay commission at different rates, however, the
commission received does not affect the amount you will pay under your finance
Understanding our products and documents.
If you have any health issues, difficulty in understanding information or there are any
recent life events that could affect your ability to fully understand the information and
documentation you are presented with or what your commitments are under the
agreement, you should carefully consider the amount of time you require to review
the documentation. You should also consider if it is advisable for you to have
someone you know help you make your decision. Please advise us accordingly if
this is the case and we can then proceed with your requirements in the most
appropriate way. You should make sure you have sufficient time to assess the
information given to ensure the funding option offered is suitable for you and meets
your requirements. You should seek further explanations and ask questions if
needed to fully understand the documents you are given.
You should assess the monthly payments you are required to make throughout the
agreement and ensure you are able to meet these obligations and other obligations
you already have without suffering undue hardship. If you are aware of any future
events that will affect your ability to meet these payments, you should ensure the
provider is informed immediately. Your credit rating could be adversely affected if
you do not make payments when due which could make it harder or more expensive
for you to access finance facilities in the future.
