Finance Types

Hire Purchase

Under a Hire Purchase agreement, you usually pay a deposit at the start of the agreement. You then pay the rest of the value of the car in instalments, over a period of between 3 and 5 years.

Balanced Payment Plan

A Balanced Payment Plan offers the benefits of a fixed monthly payment, however tracks the changes in the finance house base rate, LIBOR or bank base, depending on the agreement.

Personal Contract Purchase

PCP is a popular way of financing a vehicle and is usually based upon a Hire Purchase agreement. The main difference is that the vehicle’s value at the end of the agreement is calculated at the start.

Specialist Facilities

We have access to a number of specialist lenders that will look at high value vehicles over £1 million, classic and exotic cars, refinancing existing deals, equity release or even assets other than vehicles.
