Hire Purchase (HP)

  • What is Hire Purchase?

First off we have Hire Purchase (HP) – a finance product that has been around, it seems, since the dawn of time. It’s used everywhere in nearly all retail environments and is very simple to understand.

You pay a deposit and make your monthly payment until the car becomes yours, 100%. It’s best for customers who definitely want to own the car at the end of the agreement.

Advantages of HP

  • The cost of vehicle purchase is spread over a fixed period, normally between 1 and 5 years, rather than a large upfront payment
  • You own the vehicle once the final installment has been made

Disadvantages of HP

  • Potentially higher monthly payments in comparison to other finance options.
