You may opt to buy your car through Hire Purchase (HP) after paying an initial deposit, you then pay the remainder of the value of the car in instalments, normally for between two and five years. The finance agreement is secured against the car being bought. In effect, you are hiring the car until you make your final payment after which you will own it.
Personal Loan Finance – this product is ideal for people who want to own the car at the beginning of the finance agreement and do not have a deposit to put towards their purchase, or in some circumstances where your current part exchange has negative equity.
Under a Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) your vehicle purchase will be supported by one of our approved finance providers. Thereafter, it will be your responsibility to make the agreed monthly payments for the duration of the agreement. A portion of your car's value will be deferred until the end of the agreement – called the Guaranteed Future Value – which is the minimum value that we can guarantee your vehicle will be worth (subject to fair wear and tear and mileage). At the end of your agreement period, you will be presented with three options: part-exchange the vehicle for a new car, pay the optional final payment and retain the car or return your car with no further payments (subject to terms and conditions).
Personal Contract Hire (PCH) works in a similar way to PCP, the main difference is that ownership of the vehicle would not be assumed at the end of the agreement period and instead the car would be handed back. However, another vehicle could then be chosen under the same scheme (subject to credit checks and application).
Personal Contract Hire – provides hassle-free motoring, you benefit from a low initial outlay, regular rentals and no worries about disposing of your vehicle at the end of the contract.
Business Contract Hire – the efficient way of funding the use of the vehicle without the cost of ownership, you benefit from initial outlay, regular rentals and no worry about disposal of your vehicle at the end of the contact.
Low credit score ? Experiencing problems obtaining finance ?
Poor Credit Rating can often lead to customers being rejected for used car finance deals. A poor credit rating, or credit score could be caused by previously missed payment obligations, County Court Judgments or a declaration of bankruptcy. At Windsors, because we are a credit broker and not a direct lender, we work very closely with a panel of lenders from prime to subprime to help you buy a car.
They will take a look at each one of our customer’s credit history and do their best to find a finance deal that can be tailored to your needs. Our finance team will offer you all the advice you need if you have money worries and will never pressure a customer into a situation that would harm them financially. Alternatively, you can also get free and impartial advice by getting in touch with the Citizens Advice Bureau or Money Advice Service. (Sub-prime finance is not guaranteed and may cost more than finance provided by a prime lender. We will try to obtain finance for you but there is no guarantee. It may be from a sub-prime lender, and if so, the cost of finance may likely be at a higher rate than prime lenders offer.)
