Unfortunately common sense can often disappear when it comes to looking for a loan. Whilst people are quite happy to shop around to find the best deal when they are looking for a new TV or a new sofa, very few people seem to few trying to get a loan in the same light.
When you think about it though, why should you pay more for something when a cheaper option may be available to you? Why should you sign up with a provider who may have a bad record for customer service? Loans are no different than anything else and taking some time to find the right option for you is 100% the right thing to do.
