About Uncle Buck Loans

Dartford-based Uncle Buck is one of the longest running subprime lenders in operation since 2004. This company started with ex-pawnbroker Steve Murray who managed to build up a large team of around 100 employees. We had a peek behind the curtain some years back when the ITV documentary “Cash in Hand! Payday Loans” followed the workings of Uncle Buck’s collections team. A rough video is on Dailymotion if you’d like to check it out. At that time they were paying out around 12,000 loans monthly. An interesting group acquisition of Ancora Capital Ltd brought in a trio of brands (RedWallet, VarioLoans and WagedayXpress), but for some reason they opted to sell this business off to brokers RevUP Media Llc.

Whilst historically operating as a payday lender, a complete switch over to instalments was taken on. 2 monthly instalment options of 4 and 6 months are available. An issue when opting for 6 months is that you need to borrow at least £425 to access this term. One standout feature with this lender is that they process applications 7/7 across extended hours of Mon/Fri (8am-9.30pm) and Sat/Sun (9am-6pm). Measuring brand popularity has always been tricky through the skewed search queries made for the John Candy movie of the same name. Actual traffic ranks have dipped recently considering they had at the beginning of the year been ranking at 38k. They have just over 3100 fans on Facebook.

Rivals & Similar Lenders Like Uncle Buck

This is a top 10 instalment brand that has been competitive against Mr Lender, MyJar, Peachy and Tappily. It has always been difficult for them to take market share from major brands at the level of Satsuma or Sunny as they don’t advertise much online and haven’t run TV ads. What does help them to stand out is their high level of industry experience. Whilst other early starters like PaydayUK (2003) and WageDayAdvance (2004) folded this firm has managed to weather the storm of capping and strict regulation changes. Only The One Stop Money Shop started earlier (2002) whilst Sunny have a matched 2004 year through 1 Month Loan (Sunny was a 2013 rebrand).
