PCP agreements let you pay off the depreciation between the sale price and a figure known as a guaranteed future value. This means lower monthly repayments and no further obligations at the end of the agreed contract.
The major advantages of taking out a PCP agreement are the lower monthly costs and the flexibility at the end of the contract to walk away with nothing more to pay or the option to buy outright. There’s also the ability to change models more frequently, making this ideal for those that like to drive the latest vehicles.
With a PCP agreement, you’ll have plenty of flexibility available; however, should you wish to keep the vehicle, you will need to pay the guaranteed future value fee in full, or be prepared to take out another financing agreement. This could ultimately result in the model costing more to purchase than via an alternative scheme.
Yes. Speak to a member of the team at Bellinger for further details on settling your agreement.
Hire purchase is a simple and convenient way of purchasing your vehicle outright. After paying a deposit, you cover the full value of the car with monthly payments over an agreed term, usually between 24 and 60 months. When the final payment is made, the vehicle is yours.
The major advantage of a Hire Purchase agreement is the fact that, at the end of any agreement, you will be the overall owner of the model. What’s more, you’re also able to spread the costs of buying into manageable monthly repayments, making it simple to budget for.
When opting for a Hire Purchase agreement, you should be aware that the monthly payments may seem steeper than those associated with PCP. This is because you will be paying off the overall balance of the model as opposed to the depreciation in value.
Absolutely. We do, of course, recommend liaising with the team at Bellinger to discuss options should you wish to settle early.

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)
PCP is the most popular form of car financing because it provides you with three choices before you choose whether or not to make an optional final payment:
PCP requires a deposit, followed by fixed monthly instalments paid over an agreed term.
Hire Purchase (HP)
HP goes back a lot further than PCP and it remains a much used form of financing. It too is flexible and requires the payment of a deposit, followed by fixed monthly payments. However, unlike PCP, there’s no option to decline the final payment or choose a new HP deal. You simply pay the final instalment and the vehicle is yours for good.
