Choosing a hire purchase agreement allows you to pay for your car in monthly instalments and then you have the option to buy the vehicle at the end of the fixed term contract. Normally the APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is set before the contract begins, and loan periods are typically three to five years.
Once you have found the vehicle you would like to buy, let us know how much you want to borrow, based on the price of the vehicle minus any deposit. Many of our customers choose to part-exchange their existing vehicle to help cover the deposit.

At the end of the agreement
At the end of your HP agreement, you have the option to either buy the vehicle or part-exchange it to get a newer model or a different vehicle. Once you settle your hire purchase contract you will become the outright owner of the car.

HIRE PURCHASE FAQs
what is hire purchase?
Hire purchase or HP is a popular type of car finance which enables you to get a loan towards buying a new or used vehicle. Under the agreement you will put down a minimum of 10% deposit from the value of the car you purchase and agree to repay the loan over a period of time, usually between 3 and 5 years. The regular payments are lowering your outstanding loan, until it’s completely paid off at the end of your agreement.
HOW MUCH DEPOSIT WILL I NEED?
Usually 10-20% of the cost of the vehicle. The exact sum will depend on your financial situation and whether you are buying a new or used car. However, there are a few agreements that do not require any deposit, whereas others may ask for up to 30 per cent to qualify for a low interest rate. Of course, the more money you can put down as a deposit the less you’ll have to borrow and therefore the lower your monthly repayments will be.
CAN I REDUCE MY MONTHLY PAYMENT?
You can reduce your monthly repayments by putting down a larger deposit at the start of a finance agreement, or deferring a lump sum (also known as a balloon payment) until the end of the agreement, which can be a useful option in some circumstances. Call us to discuss your options and we can explain more.
CAN I SELL THE CAR?
Once you’ve paid off the outstanding sum it’s yours and you can do whatever you like with it. However, while you’re still paying off the finance you aren’t legally entitled to sell the car.
CAN I SETTLE THE AGREEMENT EARLY?
Yes, but charges will usually apply – these are explained in the terms and conditions of your agreement. Please call us for further information.ts.
Who owns the car?
The loan is secured against your vehicle, so the lender remains the legal owner of the car until the borrowed amount has been fully paid.
What to do if you can’t afford payment?
In case you find yourself in financial difficulties and unable to pay your monthly rate, we highly advise you to notify one of our advisors about the change in your circumstances. As soon as you do this we can help you to avoid falling into arrears, which might affect your credit history.
CAN I ARRANGE FINANCE FOR MORE THAN ONE CAR?
Yes – we have financed multiple car purchases for many clients. We look to build long-standing relationships with our clients and we’ll be happy to assess your requirements.
WHAT INTEREST RATE WILL I BE CHARGED?
This will depend on the value of the car you are interested in buying, the type of finance you choose and your personal circumstances. If you’d like a personal quote, get in touch. We’d be happy to oblige.
I HAVE BAD CREDIT; CAN I STILL GET CAR FINANCE?
The short answer is: Quite possibly. We take a holistic approach to credit underwriting and assess each application on its own merits. There are often very valid reasons why someone has a less than perfect credit history, and we always take into account each individual’s circumstances. If you’d like to discuss this, we’d be delighted to explain further.
