What you need to know

To spread the cost of your purchase, simply choose Novuna at the checkout and select the finance option that suits you. The application form is quick and simple and includes help text throughout to assist you. You will receive a decision from Novuna in just a few seconds.

Please be aware that finance options are a form of credit. If you fail to maintain your payments, your lender could ask a debt collector to contact you or commence legal action to recover the money you owe. A poor repayment record will affect your credit file.

Lender Arrangements

Novuna Personal Finance, a trading style of Mitsubishi HC Capital UK PLC, hold the required authorisation and permissions to provide you with credit. They need to meet high responsible lending standards, so you can rest assured that your application will be considered fairly and responsibly.

To be considered for finance, you will need to meet all of the following criteria:
  • Are at least 18 years old

  • Are a permanent UK resident and have lived in the UK for at least 3 years
  • Have a UK bank account capable of accepting Direct Debits
  • Have a good credit history with no late payments, Debt Relief Orders, County Court Judgments or bankruptcies.

Our payment plan options

We offer a range of interest-free and interest-bearing finance options to help you spread the cost of your purchase over 12 to 36 months. The value of the loan needs to be over £250 and no more than £25000. You can choose a deposit of up to 75% of the value of the goods.

Some finance options will not be available across all products or combinations of product in our website. Add items to your shopping cart and visit the checkout to see what options will be made available to you for your combined order.

All products in our website are available to purchase via finance.
Available finance packages may not be available equally on all products, for example, as our special offers are already discounted, we might not offer our best finance package where special offer products are selected.
Selecting multiple products may alter the finance package we can offer you and you should note that although a particular finance package is offered when viewing a specific product, it may not be offered when you select additional items.
The best finance package we can offer will be displayed when you review your shopping cart.
  • 36 Months Interest Free Credit (0% APR Representative) on some orders over £1500.00. Deposit required: 30% minimum.
  • 24 Months Classic Credit (15.9% APR Representative) on some orders over £750.00. Deposit required: 20% minimum.

Understanding the numbers

We want to make sure that you understand the costs, terms and key features of the finance options available to you. You will see this information as you shop and at checkout.

Use our finance calculator at checkout to see how different loan values, terms and interest rates affect the total amount you need to pay and the monthly repayments. Our online finance calculator is for illustrative purposes only and is not a quote, or formal offer of finance. The offer you receive if you apply will be dependent on your personal circumstances and the policies of Novuna Personal Finance.

It is important that you understand what this information means for you before you decide to apply for finance. The numbers and information you see when taking out finance can be overwhelming and so we've provided a simple guide below to help you.

Use our checkout finance calculator to check the impact of various loan values, terms and interest rates on the total amount you need to pay and the monthly repayments.

Whichever finance option you choose to apply for, you need to be sure that you can afford to pay the deposit, and keep up with your monthly repayments. You should think about any changes to your situation that might occur during the term of the loan, which could impact on your finances - e.g. retirement, moving home, changing jobs, or any health issues which could affect your income or expenditure.

Representative example

Cash price £1000.00, Deposit £200.00. Total amount of credit £800.00 over 24 months with an annual interest rate of 15.9% (Fixed). Monthly repayments will be £38.74 with a total repayable of £1129.76. 15.9% APR representative.


The above representative example shows the finance information that we expect to apply to more than half of accepted applications for a specific amount and repayment term.

The representative example is not a quote or formal offer of finance - we display this to help you understand how much a loan will cost, and so you can compare it with other products.

Whilst these numbers are there to help you understand what a loan will cost you, it is important that you understand any other potential costs in the terms and conditions of the finance option you select. For instance, you may be charged missed or late payment fees if you do not keep up with your payments.

FAQ's

Finance decision

Will I be accepted for finance?

Your application will be assessed based on eligibility, credit history and affordability and Novuna will let you know the outcome in just a few seconds. Your lender will perform a 'soft' credit search on your credit file as part of their assessment, to determine whether the loan is affordable for you and if you are likely to make your repayments on time.

It's important to know that if your application is accepted, a 'hard' credit check may be made on your credit file. Only you can see that a 'soft' search has been made on your credit file, but a 'hard' credit check will be visible to others viewing your credit file, for example, if you apply for credit in the future, the lender will see that an application credit search was made on your credit file.

In a few cases, your application may be referred for manual assessment and you'll be notified by email of the credit decision within 24 hours.

What do I do if I have been declined?

If your application was declined, Novuna may be unable to give you specific reasons why. Lenders use information from your credit report, alongside your income and expenditure data to make a lending decision. If you feel that there has been a mistake, please contact Novuna - their contact details will appear on the email informing you that your application was declined.

You can also contact the Credit Reference Agencies if there is a mistake on your credit report:

Experian - https://www.experian.co.uk/
Equifax - https://www.equifax.co.uk/Products/credit/credit-score.html
TransUnion - https://www.transunion.co.uk/

When will I receive a copy of my loan agreement?
You will be presented with an unsigned copy of your credit agreement for you to sign once your lender has made their decision. Once you have signed your credit agreement, your lender will also sign it and a copy will be available for you to download. These will also be emailed securely to your given email address.

If you need a copy of your agreement at any point after this, you can request this from your lender.

The terms of your loan agreement will set out your right to withdraw. You may be able to withdraw from your loan agreement within 14 days. However, if you do so, you will still be responsible to pay for your goods by another payment method.

Payments and Order

How do I make my monthly payments?

Your lender will help you set up convenient, pre-authorised payments via your bank account or your credit/debit card.

Can I request delivery to an address other than my home address?

In order to safeguard against fraudulent applications, we are only able to deliver goods to your home address.

I want to amend my order.

If you have been approved for finance, the amount or term cannot be amended. You will need to contact us (your retailer) to amend the goods or services you ordered and you may need to complete a new application for finance.

Please note we cannot guarantee a new credit application will be approved.

I haven't received my goods or service.

Please contact us (your retailer) at info@ukbikesdepot.com and we will help you.

I want to change my Direct Debit details.

Changing your payment date can only be done once the first payment has been taken. Please contact your lender to talk to them about updating your Direct Debit details.

Are there any fees or charges to pay?

There is no fee for processing your application, and Novuna does not charge you for its credit broking services.

Fees will be payable to your lender if you fail to maintain your repayments. Fees and charges may include late payment fees and administration/letter fees if you are issued an arrears or default notice. Full details of all fees and charges will be set out in the terms of your credit agreement.

Cancellations and Returns

I want to return my goods and cancel my finance agreement.

Please see our Terms & Conditions . Some products cannot be cancelled, for example, made-to-order or bespoke goods, so you should check this before you complete your purchase.

Where you do have the right to cancel, you must do this within 14 days of entering into the finance agreement.

To cancel your finance agreement, please contact us (your retailer) and arrange to return your purchase or cancel the services. Once we have confirmed cancellation, we will advise your lender to cancel your finance agreement and refund any payments that have been made. If you made your purchase in-store, we will refund any deposit payment that you made. Your finance agreement can only be cancelled by your lender if your purchase is cancelled with us.

What happens to my loan if I want to return my order?

There is a 14-day cooling-off period where you can withdraw from the credit agreement after signing your documents. If you wish to do this, please contact us (your retailer) directly. We can cancel the application on your behalf. There is no need to contact Novuna.

A payment plan does not affect our standard refund and returns policy. Just contact us and we'll cancel your application. Your lender will refund your deposit and let you know if you have any balance to repay.

Please check our full Terms & Conditions.

For any other questions contact us by telephone or email.

Email: info@ukbikesdepot.com
Telephone: (01422) 341963 (01422) 344602 Or see our Contact Us page.

Can I withdraw from the credit agreement and pay by a different method?

You have the right under section 66A of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 to withdraw from the agreement without giving any reason before the end of 14 days (beginning with the day after the day on which agreement is made or, if later, the date on which the lender will tell you that they have signed the agreement). If you wish to withdraw you must give your lender notice in writing or by telephone or email. The name and contact details of your lender will be clearly shown on your credit agreement.

Please note that if you do give notice of withdrawal, you must repay the whole of the credit without delay and in any event by no later than 30 days after giving notice of withdrawal. You will also have to pay interest accrued from the date the agreement was made until the date you repay it.
