Financing your car online
With Marriott Motor Group, financing a car online couldn’t be easier.
What is Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)?
With a PCP contract, you put down a deposit, followed by fixed, affordable monthly payments over an agreed length of time. Before the agreement is due to end, you have the option to pay a final, ‘balloon’ payment, otherwise known as guaranteed minimum future value (GMFV). This figure is calculated at the start of the agreement and is an estimation of the vehicle’s value come the end of the agreement.
If you decide to pay the balloon instalment, the car is yours to keep. If you choose not to make the final payment, you simply hand the car back and walk away with nothing more to pay. Or, you can choose to begin a new PCP agreement which will allow you to select a brand new car.
Personal Contract Purchase FAQs
To check if you’re eligible for PCP financing, we’ll run a soft credit search, which won’t affect your future credit applications.
It’s generally easier to get a PCP (or Hire Purchase) agreement if you have poor credit than it is to lease a car. This is because, with PCP, you’re financing a part of the vehicle’s total cost.
Annual Percentage Rate (APR) refers to the total cost of borrowing for a year, which means it includes standard fees and interest.
What is Hire Purchase (HP)?
HP is popular with motorists who know from the start that they wish to own a car outright. It’s similar to PCP in that you’re required to pay a deposit and make fixed monthly instalments. However, there is no final balloon payment. This is because, with HP, each instalment pays off the overall price of the car (plus fees and interest). When you make the final instalment, the car is yours for good.
Hire Purchase FAQs
To check that you’re eligible, we’ll run a soft credit search. This won’t affect your credit score.
You’re more likely to get car finance with HP than PCP if you have bad credit. This is because, with HP, the value of the loan is secured against the vehicle. It also means that if you miss payments, the lender could repossess the vehicle to settle your debt.
APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate and it includes the total cost of borrowing over a 12-month period, including fees and interest.
