PCP Finance Explained
What is Personal Contract Purchase Finance (PCP)
Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is a very popular form of used car finance and can offer much more flexibility compared to Hire Purchase (HP). With PCP finance, you'll likely pay an initial deposit followed by fixed monthly payments. However, please bear in mind that you won't automatically become the owner of the car at the end of your agreement.
Instead, you'll have three options to choose from; to pay the outstanding amount owed to fully own the vehicle, to part-exchange the vehicle (via West Motors) and begin a new contract on a different car, or return the car to the finance company.
There are varying factors which contribute to the monthly amount paid during your finance term, including: deposit amount, mileage required, value of the car, and agreement interest rate.
Your monthly payment on PCP finance will likely be less than an HP deal, however, mileage limits do apply and you’ll incur financial penalties should you exceed the mileage cap. As with any finance plan, we recommend that you fully understand the payment agreement you enter into and the associated risks.
