Vertu Motors Pay Later Agreement

Thank you for choosing the Vertu Motors Group for aftersales services and Vertu Motors PLC to fund your aftersales invoice with an interest free finance agreement (Vertu Motors Pay Later).
This is a credit agreement between you and us. When we use 'us', 'we' or 'our' in this document, we mean Vertu Motors PLC (company number: 05984855) whose registered address is at Vertu House, Fifth Avenue Business Park, Team Valley, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, NE11 0XA. When we use 'you' in this document, we mean the person named below who has agreed to this Vertu Motors Pay Later agreement.
Where you enquire about Vertu Motors Pay Later, we will ask for consent to carry out a soft credit search using a third party credit reference agency to obtain a credit score for you. If you agree, we may use this credit score to determine if we offer Vertu Motors Pay Later to you. If you do not agree to a soft credit search, we may not be able to offer Vertu Motors Pay Later to you.
We can provide you with the credit score we have obtained for you on request, although this will only be visible to certain colleagues. You will be able to challenge your credit score with the credit reference agency if you believe it is inaccurate.
