Our credit broking service
Helping you to decide
We do not offer advice or make recommendations when arranging your finance, but we will ask some questions to allow us to narrow down a choice of lender and to provide a quotation; you will then need to make your own choice about how to proceed.
The capacity in which we act for you
In providing our credit broking service, we will act on your behalf. We are not a lender.
Our product range and finance provider used
We only offer finance products from a carefully selected limited range of finance providers.
Complaints and compensation
At Superbike Loans each of our customers is important to us, and we believe you have the right to a fair, swift and courteous service at all times. If you do have a complaint about any aspect of our service you can contact us in person, in writing, by e-mail or by phone using the address or details above.
When dealing with your complaint, we will follow our complaint handling procedures; a summary of these procedures is available on request. If you are still not satisfied, you may be entitled to refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service. For further information you can visit FOS website www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk.
Payment for our credit broking services
We will typically receive commissions from finance providers in relation to arranging finance, and we will not charge you any fees for arranging finance.
Details of any proposed finance product
We will provide you with all required information in relation to any proposed finance product (including a Standard European Consumer Credit Information – SECCI – form, adequate explanations in relation to the proposed credit agreement and a copy of a Regulated Credit Agreement) prior to the completion of the finance arrangements.
Cancellation of Agreements
The finance provider will provide you separately with details of your rights to cancel your credit agreement. Please be aware that if you exercise your right to cancel the credit agreement, finance will not be provided, and you will still need to find an alternative source of finance to fund your purchase.
You are responsible for answering any questions in relation to any proposal for finance honestly and to the best of your knowledge, providing complete and accurate information which the finance provider will require. If you fail to disclose information or misrepresent any fact which may influence the finance provider’s decision to provide finance, this could invalidate the credit agreement and mean that the finance may not be provided. You must check all details on any application form or and pay particular attention to any declaration you may be asked to sign.
It is important that you read all finance documents issued to you and ensure that you are aware of the costs, repayments and other terms that apply.
If you are unsure about any matter, please contact us for guidance.

In processing personal data for insurance purposes about health or criminal offences, we will only do so to enable us to provide our service to you and on the basis of it being in the public interest.
We will only use your data for the purpose for which it was collected.
