What does Hire Purchase involve?
With Hire Purchase you are free to use your vehicle whilst paying set monthly fees. On top of that you will own the car outright upon the final monthly payment.
However, you will likely be responsible for the upkeep of the car and any costs that come from maintenance and servicing, which can be included within Lease Purchase agreements. You will also have to clear any outstanding finance on the vehicle should you wish to sell it at any point prior to final payment.
Hire purchase could be the right solution for your next car purchase. Call Harrington today and see how of dedicated team can help you find the right deal to fund your next dream car.
