What is Hire Purchase Car Finance?

Hire Purchase is one of the most common types of finance, it is really simple – you hire the vehicle and make fixed monthly repayments until you have paid off all of the agreed finance.

There are no surprises at the end of your agreement such as balloon payments or mileage restrictions.

The entire car price is spread across your agreement term and once all monthly payments have been made the car becomes yours, making it one sensible option for borrowing.
