With many options available it’s often a maze at first for many customers in which direction to consider for their car finance.
In Hire purchase the consumer takes a vehicle – typically over either 3 or 4 years and makes a fixed monthly repayment until ownership of the vehicle passes to them at the end of the term. This option gives us the flexibility to select any car for the customer providing it is sold through a dealer and not a private sale and also means that the vehicle is paid in full after 35 or 47 monthly repayments have been made. This is also viewed as a typical car loan and is secured on the car making it usually easier to complete than a normal unsecured loan.
Personal contract Purchase
With a PCP deal it is similar to the Hire purchase options but we can offset an amount of funds by adding what is termed as a balloon payment onto the end of the contract. This would give the customer the choice at the end of the deal to make a final payment to retain ownership of the car or to simply hand the vehicle back and then be free to arrange a new car instead. With the personal contract purchase the customer benefits from a reduced monthly repayment amount as they are not paying back as much money over the course of the contract.
A bad credit car loan is another way to consider the HP and PCP agreements but with a lower or zero initial payment amount being required. With car finance you will normally look to pay a deposit or what we term an initial payment. With the Car loan for bad credit agreement you would have no initial payment and so your first months direct debit payment would be due 1 month after the funds had been received.
Bad credit car finance doesn’t have to mean that you need compromise on the vehicle you select as with Car with bad credit you can simply choose the exact make and model and we will be able to fund it for you – it’s that simple.

We are also asked by customers to provide credit facilities for new cars or for nearly new vehicles such as ex demo models or pre registered offers. This again is a simple case for us to deal with once your Bad credit car finance has been approved.
