What is the difference between HP and PCP?2019-08-20T10:29:32+01:00

Hire purchase (HP) and Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) are the two predominant forms of car finance.

A HP is the traditional and simplest form of finance. The cost of the vehicle you are buying is spread over an agreed length of time, between 2 to 5 years and an agreed fixed interest rate is attached to the loan with the loan paid back over equal monthly instalments.

A PCP is essentially a Hire Purchase agreement; however part of the loan is not paid off during the loan term but as a single payment at the end of the loan period. This payment has several names – a residual, balloon or guaranteed future value, but is essentially a lump sum that is owed on the car. None of this residual amount is paid off with your monthly payments and a PCP contract will typically provide lower monthly instalments. PCP contracts are well established in the new car market and gives the customer to hand the car back at the end of the agreement.

Fast n Funded does not offer PCP car finance but it offers Hire Purchase with a balloon at the end for a final payment, with no option to hand back at the end of the agreement

Can I get car finance with a fair credit score?2019-08-13T20:46:40+01:00

Working with a large panel of lenders means we can help customers with a range of credit histories to get car finance, and we’re frequently able to help people with fair credit.

No two customers are alike, so we’d look at your application in more detail to make sure we tailor a quote to your needs. We’ve got a number of options that would be suitable for customers with fair credit, so we’d be hopeful of being able to help you to get a competitive finance deal in place.

Will I own the car at the end?2019-08-13T20:49:39+01:00

Yes, when you have made all the payments the car is yours, and of course should you wish to settle early or part exchange your car before the end of your agreement this is perfectly fine.

I’ve been refused finance with my bank and I have my business account with them – can I still get finance?2019-08-20T10:31:29+01:00

We’re often able to help finance cars for customers where their bankers cannot. It does not mean that the customer has been declined finance, it may just mean the bank’s lending policy restricts them offering finance for some customers; typically high net worth (HNW) customers.

Can I get car finance if I am self employed?2019-08-13T20:43:23+01:00

Yes, if you’re self employed then you’re still eligible for getting financed with us. We have helped many self employed/business customers finance their car.
