Our Finance Options

We don’t take no for an answer until we exhaust all avenues.

We have a number of finance companies that we use, this enables us to offer you competitive rates and a fast underwriting decision. Lenders often use different credit reference agencies and also apply the information to an underwriting scorecard differently – sometimes based upon the payment history of similar existing customers. Consequently we don’t take no for an answer and exhaust all avenues.

Also different lenders sometimes have different products and profiles, for example, some will offer 48 month finance whereas another lender may offer 60 month finance. Consequently we will utilise the best terms for the product and you the customer. The majority of our lenders tend to be household names and High Street banks that you will recognise, however do have a number of independent ‘specialist’ lenders that look at customers whom may have had historical impaired credit. Our sales staff will be delighted to take your details over the telephone and get them over to the finance houses. We offer Hire Purchase, Contract Purchase, Finance Lease, Contract Hire, Lease Purchase and Full Pay out Finance Lease.

Full Payout Finance Lease

This is a very tax efficient method of financing your vehicle.

HOW IT WORKS
  • A relatively small initial rental, or deposit, normally 3 monthly rentals or repayments in advance, followed by the remainder of the rentals or repayments over the term, with a choice of up to 5 year terms available.
  • If you are not VAT registered, it means that you pay the VAT monthly and similarly, VAT registered companies pay the VAT monthly, and claim it back quarterly. 100% of the monthly repayments are offset against taxable profits for the full term of the agreement.
  • At the end of the term, you are legally obliged to sell the vehicle, as the taxman will not allow you the tax advantages of the lease as well as ownership of the vehicle at the end of the agreement. So, you choose who you sell the vehicle to, you negotiate the price, and then you pay the finance company up to 5% of the sale proceeds, and you keep 97%. Normally you would use the 97% of the sale proceeds that you have retained as the deposit on your next new van, but you are not obliged to do so and you can do whatever you want with it as it is your money.
  • If you choose to part exchange your old van for a new van, which you can do at any time in the agreement, the supplier of the new van will request the settlement figure from your current finance company, and should the settlement figure be less than the market value of the part exchange, the difference can then be used as part or all of the deposit on the new van, whilst if the settlement is more than the market value of the part exchange, the difference can be added to the new finance agreement, but the deposit will then need to be paid in full. The new finance figures are calculated dependant upon the settlement figure, and the new supplier would then pay the finance company the up to 5% of the sale proceeds of the part exchange vehicle to close the previous agreement.
  • Should you decide you want to keep your old vehicle after the term of the agreement has finished, without selling it, you can request what is called a Secondary/Peppercorn Rental figure from your finance company, which you then pay annually instead of monthly, and it allows you to keep the vehicle for up to a further 2 years. This figure would normally be in line with whatever the monthly figure was during your finance agreement, but would only be paid once a year instead of once a month.
