It is stated that most people choose their 32 week term where they price match Provident. You do get better value when you opt for their 24 week selection. There is a delay in the payout process. It is stated that you’ll usually hear from a team member within 7 days once you have filled in their enquiry form (no SSL). Poor credit is also mentioned, although no specifics follow. There is a related company called Kiln House Toys, although this is a toy shop that has just has a single page listing on the mentioned site. Whether or not they offer credit on purchases is unknown.

Noteworthy…
– Experience: This is one of the older home collection loan companies competing today. They were established in 1932 that marks more than 80 years experience. Throughout their history they have kept their service local, but they have now extended to Birmingham and Nottingham that appear to be recently added destinations.
– Pricing: Whilst they price match the leading doorstep lender, you can as noted get an improved rate at 24 weeks. When you choose this the cost is £132/£300. This would be the recommended option since their smallest selection (14) has the most expensive daily interest rate of the bunch.
– Vouchers: There is a Love2Shop voucher product available although they don’t state how much you can borrow, what the costs are etc. Asides from coupons, there are other services catered such as cash for gold and cheque cashing.

Updates…
– There is currently a homepage notice of “New website coming soon!” We’ll check back soon to see what updates have been made.
