An award-winning company


Part of our ethos here at First Response Finance is People-Service-Profit. We believe that if you recruit and invest in the right people, they will give an excellent service which then produces profit, which we reinvest back into our people.

Our people have a strong understanding of our company's vision and values, and we truly believe in putting our dealers and customers at the heart of everything we do. We are always chasing perfection, seeking feedback from our customers, dealers, and employees on how we can continually improve.

‘Best Car Finance Provider’ and ‘Firm of the Year’

car dealer magazine award winners

Our company was voted the 'Best Car Finance Provider' and 'Firm of the Year' at the Consumer Credit Awards 2022 by thousands of our customers. For the third consecutive year, our dealer partners have voted us ‘Finance Provider of the Year (Sub-Prime)’ in the Car Dealer Power Awards. Being recognised, nominated, and winning these awards means a lot to us, and is a testament to our people. We are there when you need us most.

Besides delivering award-winning service, we also support our customers and dealers during the tough times too. The national lockdowns did not stop us lending, and we kept our phone lines open to support our dealers (who were trading on a limited basis), and our customers who were concerned about their agreements with us. We wanted to ensure that even in times of uncertainty, our customers and dealers knew they could rely on First Response Finance.

First Response Finance's Head of Sales, Jonathan Such, shares his thoughts on the awards we were nominated for and won last year:

"We are really happy to receive it, and fortunately we are multiple winners, but the reason why we keep obtaining these awards in my view, is due to the amount of effort that everybody within First Response Finance puts into providing a class service to our dealers. We supported our dealer network during the 2008 financial crisis and during the national lockdowns due to Covid-19, and we will support our dealers through the cost-of-living crisis too."

If you are looking for a subprime finance company that both customers and dealers consider to be award-winning, that is there for you when you need us, and can help you sell more vehicles, look no further.
