Frequently asked questions

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.

This approach allows us to consider any extenuating circumstances such as a poor credit history, self-employment or any previous mortgage or council tax arrears and view you as an individual, not just a number.

Why is your APR higher than other lenders who offer car finance?

We specialise in providing finance to individuals who have struggled to obtain credit. We charge a higher APR on our finance products because we serve the sector of the community, which are usually excluded from conventional lending and our customers are seen to be a higher risk by other lenders.

To reward our loyal customers who have proved they are committed to improving their credit could receive a reduced interest rate on their next agreement.
