Real stories and real people

Meet Scott

Our third story

Meet Scott.

Known to his friends as a bit of a speed freak, Scott’s passion for motorbikes dated back to his teenage years. Back then, his pride and joy was a used Yamaha YBR125 in midnight black – a real looker at the time, he thought!

As the years passed, Scott upgraded his ride a few times but always found himself settling for a bike that was well within his immediate budget. Unfortunately, this meant that he never seemed to find enough spare funds to get his hands on the bike of his dreams.

In fact, he had his heart set on a very specific bike – a 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R. A very similar model to the one Steve McQueen used to bolt across the Swiss-German border in The Great Escape.

After a few years of dedicated saving, Scott had managed to put away half the amount of money he needed for his ideal bike, which retails for £9,000. Nevertheless, the thought of continuing this routine for another two years before reaching the total he needed wasn’t all that appealing.

He’d been mulling over the idea of a secured loan for some time and gave it a lot of thought beforehand. In the end, the decision was an easy one. Scott had a stable job he was happy with, a mortgage and a clear picture of his monthly income and outgoings, so he began to browse banks and lenders to find his best loan option.

The main issue he encountered was that the repayment terms on offer weren’t very flexible and didn’t leave him with much money to spare at the end of each month. The service also didn’t feel very personal to his own situation.

That’s when Scott approached Evolution Money.

He was looking for a secured loan of £4,500 to help meet the total cost of his new bike, but first needed to talk through his repayment options with one of our secured loan experts.

This was Scott’s first secured loan, so he wanted to be absolutely sure that he had all bases covered when finalising an agreement that was within his monthly budget. Together we created a two-year plan that was bespoke to Scott’s financial situation and that still allowed him more than enough of his monthly income to live comfortably.

Before long, Scott was on the road with his dream bike and hasn’t looked back since!
