Finance at Accrington Garages

If you want to buy your perfect car and you want lower monthly repayments, a PCP could be just right for you.

Here’s how it works.

Here's an example....

A car costing £12000 will be bought over 3 years. The deposit from your old car in part exchange is £2000. Which leaves £10000 to pay. Let’s imagine the interest on the borrowing over 3 years will be £1700. So the total amount of the finance is £11,700. Divide that by 36 months and you will have a monthly payment of £325.

Approaching the end of a PCP?


With a PCP you get 4 Options at the end of the lease:

Option 1: Pay back the final payment and keep the car

Option 2: Refinance the final payment over a further period

Option 3: Sell the car and use any surplus for a deposit on a newer car

Option 4: Don’t pay the final payment, hand back the keys and walk away





Why would you choose a PCP?


In summary, with a PCP the advantages are:

  1. Lower monthly payments than hire purchase for the same car over the same term
  2. A low deposit at the start
  3. You can pay off the whole finance mid-term if you want
  4. Fixed monthly payments throughout the term of the agreement
  5. With a PCP there’s additional flexibility at the end of the agreement on what you want to do with the car

If you want to buy your perfect car and you want to own the vehicle at the end of the agreement, a HP could be just right for you.

Here’s how it work.

Here's an example...

Let's say you want to buy a car costing £5000 and you can pay a deposit of £500. This leaves £4500 left to pay. If you decide you can pay over 3 years, let’s say the interest on the amount you’re borrowing is £400, so the total you’re paying back is £4900. Divide by the number of months, in this case 36, and you have a fixed monthly payment of £136.11. Nice and simple.

Once you’ve made the last payment, the car is yours to keep


Until you pay off the finance, the car doesn't belong to you. Once you’ve made the last payment, the car is yours to keep.

Hire Purchase is great if you want a fixed monthly payment and want to own the car at the end. Monthly payments will be higher than a Lease Purchase or PCP agreement, but you won’t have a larger final payment either.




Why would you choose a HP?


In summary, with a HP the advantages are:

  1. Fixed monthly repayments
  2. No final large payment
  3. Up to 5 years to pay back.
  4. The loan is secured on the car, not your home.
  5. If you repay early you can save some of the interest charges.
  6. You own the car at the end.
