We are delighted to announce that as a group we are now SAF accredited. Within our group we have various brands all providing finance advice and options including Hippo Leasing, Hippo Motor Finance and Hippo Prestige among others. With so much choice for our customers it is important that all our team is fluent in finance, the benefits, negatives and what suits the individual the best.
The Hippo Motor Group are serious about the professionalism of their approach to treating customers fairly and ensuring there is the highest level of finance product knowledge available to our team and in turn passed onto customers. Car finance is a minefield and can be very daunting for the majority of customers so a streamlined accreditation like this provides all our team with credible and accurate knowledge on the various finance products we have available.
In 2007 Specialist Automotive Finance (SAF) was introduced by the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) to boost customer confidence in the motor trade.
To become SAF approved a thorough competence test must be passed with flying colours by all those within a dealership responsible for offering finance products. The test consists of 60 randomly-generated questions about the types of car finance available and the regulations which govern their sale in the showroom or over the phone.
The SAF accreditation gives our customers the peace of mind to ask questions about car finance or leasing and receive advice which is accurate and eventually make an informed choice for their next vehicle.
