Our review of Uncle Buck

Uncle Buck offer short term installment loans up to a value of £1,000 that are repaid over four or six months. Uncle Buck will provide you with a summary of borrowing that outlines the repayment amounts and dates so you’ll be able to get an overview of the loan prior to making a commitment. As with any high-cost short-term product the usual warning applies. If you have any doubt whether you can afford to repay your loan on time and in full, then don’t apply. By missing or being late with repayments, you will not only harm your credit file but also could be subject to a number of fees, which can soon make things very expensive.

If you do borrow from Uncle Buck and happen to have some spare cash knocking around before the end of your loan term then you could benefit from making an overpayment or settling the loan early. Not only is this free of charge, but you could also be entitled to an interest rebate making your loan significantly cheaper.

They do have reviews on their website which link through to TrustPilot where they’ve achieved a score of 8.2 out of 10. Customers mainly have good things to say, commenting specifically on their friendly and efficient customer service. Uncle Buck reply to almost every review whether good or bad, to either say thank you or try to resolve the issue again reiterating Uncle Buck’s customer focus.
