When you’ve chosen your ideal vehicle, you’ll sit down with one of our advisors to agree your annual mileage and the term of the agreement – typically 18 to 48 months. We’ll then determine what the car’s Guaranteed Minimum Future Value (GMFV) will be at the end of the lease period, and tailor a package with a deposit and fixed monthly amount that suits your budget.
At the end of your agreement you have three options: Return the car to us with no further commitments, trade it in for another vehicle of your choice, or pay the optional final payment to own the car outright.
Hire Purchase is a straightforward way to finance a new or used car, and is ideal for those who want to own their vehicle outright. After paying an initial deposit – usually around 10% of the vehicle’s value, the balance is paid off in fixed monthly instalments over a period of 12-60 months.
At the end of the agreement, you pay an ‘option to purchase’ fee, normally of £100-200, which makes you the car’s owner.
