How does used car finance work?
Car finance works by allowing you to borrow a large part of a car’s cost and spread repayments over a series of monthly instalments to reduce the impact on your pocket. There are two main types of car finance, and the one you go for will depend on your financial needs and the way in which you approach car ownership.
A car finance agreement will generally see you put down an initial deposit, followed by the agreed monthly payments. These are based on the price of the car, length of the term, how much you’re borrowing, and what your options are when the agreement ends.
What are the different types of car finance?
PCP (Personal Contract Purchase)
PCP is a popular option for those that regularly upgrade, and offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to the end of the term.
Monthly payments tend to be cheaper when you opt for a PCP agreement, though there will be a mileage limit to take into consideration, particularly if you do a lot of driving.
Your options at the end of the term include handing the car back with nothing to pay (providing that it’s in good condition and hasn’t exceeded the mileage limit), paying a remaining balance (known as a balloon payment), or exchanging it for your next car.
HP (Hire Purchase)
Geared more towards long-term car ownership, a Hire Purchase agreement will see the car become yours at the end of the term. Whilst the payments are often more expensive than within a PCP agreement, you’ll have an asset once they come to an end.
HP is also a great option if you’ve got a fair few miles to cover; there are no mileage limits to worry about under a Hire Purchase agreement.
