Car Finance Explained

Hire Purchase (HP)

If you choose to pay for your car with a Hire Purchase agreement, you will normally pay an initial deposit and will pay off the entire value of the car in monthly instalments. When all the payments are made, the Hire Purchase agreement ends and you own the car.
Pros

  • You’ll be able to drive away a car that you may not have managed to buy outright.
  • Unlike a PCP or PCH contract, you won't need to estimate your mileage at the start of your Hire Purchase agreement, so you'll avoid excess mileage charges.
  • Once you’ve made your final monthly payment, you'll have full ownership of the car.

Things to bear in mind

  • Monthly payments may be higher than other finance options, such as PCP, as you're paying off the full value of the car.
  • You won’t be able to sell the car without settling the finance.

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is similar to a Hire Purchase agreement as you will usually pay an initial deposit, followed by monthly instalments.

What's different with PCP, is that your monthly instalments are only paying off the depreciation of the car, rather than the entire value of the car.

How does PCP actually work?

At the start of your PCP contract, a Guaranteed Future Value (GFV) of the car is estimated. This is the car's expected value when your contract ends.

For you, this simply means that the money you're actually borrowing and repaying is the difference between what the car is worth now, and what it will be worth at the end of your contract (the depreciation). You'll pay this difference off in monthly instalments.

This means lower monthly payments for you, but you will need to pay a final payment at the end (the Guaranteed Future Value) if you want to buy the car.

Once your monthly payments are finished, you’ll have three options:

  1. Buy the car by paying the final balloon payment (the Guaranteed Future Value)
  2. Hand the car back - your finance company has already predicted the Guaranteed Future Value of the car, so handing the car back will settle the deal.
  3. Part exchange for a new car

Pros

  • Monthly payments on a car financed by PCH are usually lower than if your car is financed by a Hire Purchase agreement.
  • If you decide not to buy the car, you can simply walk away when you've made all the monthly payments.
  • Similar to PCH, you can drive away a brand new car every three years without worrying about it running out of warranty, or selling it on.
  • If your car is worth more than the Guaranteed Future Value then you can use that equity towards a deposit on a new car.

Things to bear in mind

  • If you want to buy the car you will need to pay your final balloon payment (the Guaranteed Future Value)
  • Similar to PCH, you will need to agree on an approximate mileage estimate at the beginning of your contract.

Can I settle my PCP deal early?

You can normally settle your deal early, however many finance companies will require you to pay off the difference between what your car is worth now, and what you still owe (negative equity). For example, if your car is currently worth £12,000 but your finance settlement figure is £14,000, then you will need to pay the £2,000 to clear the negative equity. Keep an eye out for early repayment charges!

Which finance option is best for me?

It depends what you're looking for. If you're someone who likes to change their car every three years, and you're looking for low monthly payments then a PCP or PCH deal might suit you.

If you want to own your car at the end of your monthly payments without paying a final lump sum, then a Hire Purchase deal offers this.

Mr D Elston Mr D Elston
"The car that I was first after was advertised by MJA on AutoTrader. This was still advertised over a week after it was sold. Please, as soon as you have sold the car close all of the advertisements then potential customers will not be disappointed."

Mr G Potter Mr G Potter
"5 Star. Excellent service and attention to detail by Alan Warren especially as I had no experience of the instrument layout and many unfamiliar features. All the administration of taxing & trading in my old vehicle was dealt with efficiently by Mr Warren."

Mrs C Jones Mrs C Jones
"Everyone was helpfuland charming. A minor blip when the boot would not close but this was resolved swiftly."

Mr P Land Mr P Land
"Really pleased with the car and very impressed with the service offered by Alan, Brian and yourself, I'll definitely be in contact with my next requirement."

Mrs W Arrow Mrs W Arrow

Mr E Bradnock Mr E Bradnock

Ms L Miller Ms L Miller
"I paid 24 hours in advance but because the bank took a couple of hours extra (even though the money had gone through) I couldn't pick my car up."

Ms J Goldring Ms J Goldring
"I am so pleased with the whole experience. I had several dealerships nationwide looking for a particular spec Fiesta that nobody else managed to find over a period of 3 - 4 weeks. Matt kept me informed throughout, and he and other staff I spoke to were very well informed. Also there was no 'pushy salesman' stuff. I recommend MJA to anyone looking for a 'good as new' used car! Thank you very much"
