The Group’s vehicle finance business, Moneybarn, was acquired by the Group in 2014. It has since become a leading player in the vehicle finance market in UK. In addition, the expansion into the near-prime vehicle finance market in 2021 provided further opportunities for the business to support more consumers excluded from mainstream lending.

Moneybarn were brilliant. Very simple, great communication, the documentation came through quickly, just really efficient. I can’t fault them.

Originally known as Duncton, Moneybarn began life in 1992 as a means of helping people get the vehicle finance they needed to live their lives, even if they’ve had difficulties getting loans elsewhere. The company grew successfully, even through the 2008 recession, into a strong business with a focus on responsible lending.
In 2011, the company relocated its offices to a renovated barn and the team took the decision to offer finance directly to customers alongside its well-established intermediary network. What it needed was a new name and look. Combining the company’s purpose and its unique office space, a new organisation was born: Moneybarn.
Since 2014, Moneybarn has been part of the wider Vanquis Banking Group family. Each part of the Group helps people build better financial futures through access to credit and improving credit scores.
With a heritage dating back to 1880, Vanquis Banking Group has a clear Purpose that runs through all of our divisions, including Moneybarn: To help put people on a path to a better everyday life.
I can't thank the staff at Moneybarn enough. The help given was way beyond any normal expectations. When my original choice fell through the help that I received with searching for a new vehicle was exemplary. If I could give 10 stars I would. Thank you so much. Vince
The staff had endless patience with me. Whoever I spoke to were always so kind and helpful I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting to purchase a car. And would like to thank all the staff that helped me. Janet
As always, your staff are helpful, courteous and respectful! Your help has been most appreciated through these past months.”
I was so impressed with how my query was handled. I was the rudest caller to begin with as I was so stressed and panicked, and I thought I was going to lose my car. The person I spoke to made me feel at ease and I can't thank them enough. Life is hard at the moment, but they made me feel like there was light at the end of the tunnel
I’ve had a brilliant experience with Moneybarn. The process was very clear and quick and I’ve received nothing but great customer service ever since. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have a car and probably not a job either as I desperately needed one for my commute.”
I guess it’s all about trust really. When you speak to companies who want your money you don’t feel like they understand. It feels like Moneybarn are on my side.”
Moneybarn were very helpful and understanding, explained the process very well, making it easy and straightforward. After the loan and purchase of my vehicle was completed, they have followed up in the same friendly and helpful way with an easy to use app that allows me to track and manage my monthly payments.
