Can I Use Finance To Purchase A New Giant Bike?
Anybody can use our flexible finance options, as long as they meet the following criteria;
- Over 18 years of age
- A Resident in the UK
- In regular employment or able to prove sufficient regular income (pension for example)
- You have a good credit history with no previous bankruptcies, IVAs, debt relief orders, recent CCJ's or defaults
- Gross annual household income of £10,000 or more
If you meet the criteria, then there will be a full credit check upon application to assess further.
Can I Check If I Am Eligible To Apply For Finance Without Having To Process A Full Credit Application?
Yes - on the first step of the application, simply answer 10 questions and Creation Consumer finance will confirm whether you are eligible to apply. The eligibility check doesn't leave a search on your credit file that is visible to any other third party, and if you aren't eligible simply return to the check out and pay via an alternative method.
Can I Use Finance To Purchase A Sale Bike?
Unfortunately, we do not offer sale bikes with 0% finance at the moment, although we do occasionally run limited-time offers in which this may become available.
How Does Financing Work?
Finance is available on selected products ordered through our website, provided by Creation Consumer Finance. The finance offers available are product specific and are displayed on eligible products.
When you proceed with your order, simply choose Creation Consumer Finance at the checkout and you will be redirected to the Creation website to complete your application. If you have any questions or problems with your application you can contact Creation consumer finance.
If your application is successful, your order will be confirmed to Giant - we will contact you by email to let you know your order is proceeding. If your application is unsuccessful, Creation Consumer Finance will inform you and your order will be automatically cancelled.
When Do My Repayments Start?
You don't make any payments until you have collected your items.
Your first payment is approximately 30 days from the point of acceptance, but dependent on when you collect your items. For first payment date details please refer to your credit agreement or contact Creation consumer finance directly.
What Happens If I Want To Return An Item On Finance?
Returns for good purchased through finance are handled exactly the same as any other order. Simply notify us of your cancellation request via our online form and we will process the cancellation within 3-5 days - any payments you have made will be automatically refunded.

I Wanted To Use A Deposit - What Are My Options?
