Why Us?

Finance

Finance

Dealer finance is a great way to fund your next car. We provide flexible, competitive, low payment finance plans, even with zero deposits and if you have poor credit (subject to status).

Watch our CAR LOAN ADVISOR video to help decide what finance plan is best for you. Then applying for finance is fast and convenient, you can use our FINANCE CALCULATOR and apply for finance now in our used cars pages.

HIRE PURCHASE

Hire Purchase is a popular way of buying your new car because it is so simple.

You just pay an initial deposit and make equal monthly payments over any period up to 5 years. Once you have paid your final payment full ownership of the car passes to you.

If you want to change your car before your agreement has ended you have two options, either way you contact the finance company, they will provide you with a settlement figure. 1. You can then part exchange the car and we will roll the settlement figure into your next finance agreement, and settle the agreement for you. 2. You can pay the settlement figure and full ownership passes to you. Your are then free to sell your car.

You can use our FINANCE CALCULATOR and apply for finance now in our used cars pages. Alternatively please give us a call or visit if you would prefer to apply in person.

PERSONAL CONTRACT PLAN (PCP)

Personal Contract Plan (PCP) provides you with the benefits of driving a newer, higher specification car for a lower monthly payment; it provides great flexibility allowing you to change your car more often.

Unlike traditional Hire Purchase, this is works by deferring a percentage of the total price of the car to the end of the agreement 'Guaranteed Minimum Future Value' (GMFV). You pay an initial deposit, and then make equal monthly payments over a period up to 4 years.

At the end of the agreement your `Guaranteed Minimum Future Value` (GMFV) is your final payment for the car, giving you three options:

 

  1. Pay the GMFV in one lump sum and take full ownership of the car.
  2. If the car is worth more than the GMFV, you can part exchange your car using the difference between the "true value" of your car and the GMFV as deposit towards your next car.
  3. If the vehicle is worth less than the GMFV, then just hand it back to the finance company and buy a new car.

CREDIT PROBLEMS?

We understand that sometimes life is unfair, and that people can get into financial difficulties in all walks of life. CCJ's, defaults, credit card/ mortgage / council tax problems or no credit history can hinder the best of us, therefore preventing being accepted on some finance. However if you are in full time employment and have a fixed address let us take the hassle away from you.
