Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)
Available on new and a majority of used cars, this popular financing option has been around for almost 40 years and has 2 characteristics that make it unique from other forms of financing. The first is the Guaranteed Future Value (GFV). A car’s GFV is calculated by the finance company based on your anticipated mileage. This amount is deducted from the cash price of the car and deferred to the end of the agreement as the Final Payment. The customer makes payments based on the difference between the cash price (less any deposit paid when the agreement is set up) and the final payment. These payments will always be lower than any other form of purchase agreement over the same term. The second unique characteristic is what happens at the end of the agreement; with 3 choices available. These are:-
- RETAIN the car. By simply paying the Final Payment (there is a £10 Option to Purchase Fee) and the vehicle is yours.
- RETURN the car. Should the vehicle’s value not match the Final Payment, then subject to certain mileage and condition clauses you may hand the vehicle back to the finance company
- RENEW your vehicle. With the Final Payment deducted from the Part Exchange valuation and any excess being used as a deposit against your next new car.
