What our customers are saying
We have been clients of Cocoon for just over 2 years.. we discovered them online at a time in our lives when historical credit problems were still stopping us from moving on with our lives.. we desperately needed to change our car, we had a good level of income, but because our credit file at the time was less than perfect, we were hitting brick walls at every corner…
After speaking to Paul ( one of the Directors) we were assured that they could help.. and boy did they…..
Within 2 weeks of our initial chat we were driving a brand spanking new Audi A3…. the monthly price (although slightly higher than mainstream lenders) was affordable to us and it literally changed things for us – someone had taken a chance on us – just what we needed……
We then went on to have 2 more cars from them.. a VW Golf and An Audi Q3 – both brand new… by keeping up the payments and being reliable clients, we managed to rebuild our credit ratings
Now after just over 2 years and 3 cars later Paul has managed to secure us mainstream finance directly with Mercedes and we have just taken delivery of a Mercedes GLC over a 3 year deal – at mainstream lender prices too….
We cannot fault Cocoon and all the staff there for their impeccable service along with their belief and trust in us…. it came at a time when almost nobody would even look at us, let alone take a chance with us…. If you are having credit problems and need a car, there is nobody that we would recommend more than Cocoon….
Paul and Donna Gardner
