Closer Than You Think
When it comes to purchasing your car our aim at Aston Martin Walton on Thames is to ensure all our customers are fully informed of the different finance options available to them.
We have fantastic relationships with a panel of different finance companies giving us access to a variety of finance packages.
We pride ourselves on being able to offer very competitive finance packages and finding a bespoke solution to suit individual needs in order to help fund the purchase of your next car in the most cost effective manner.
The different types of finance agreements include:
PCP is similar to Lease Purchase in that the monthly payments are offset by a final payment but the difference with PCP is that this final payment is optional. At the beginning of the agreement the future value of the car is set by the finance company and at the end of the agreement you have the option to just hand back the keys rather than pay the final payment or part-exchanging for another car. PCP suits a customer who is looking to keep the same car for the duration of the finance agreement.
Whichever type of agreement you choose our aim at Walton on Thames Aston Martin is to provide a solution which puts you into the best possible position should you wish to change your car during the agreement or at the end of the agreement as we want to secure more business with you in the future and build long-standing relationships with all our clients.
Lease purchase is a finance agreement that is often best suited to cars with higher values and for customers that like to change cars regularly. Similar to a ‘hire purchase agreement’ with the main difference being a balloon payment at the end of the agreement. This means that monthly payments are less and whether you want to settle your agreement early or at the end of the agreement it is your choice whether you want to part-exchange the car, re-finance or just pay off the balance.
Hire Purchase (HP) where you pay fixed monthly payments in order to spread the cost of purchasing a car over a number of years. The benefits of this agreement are that deposits are flexible whilst having fixed rates and payments make budgeting a whole lot easier. Terms available upon from 12 – 60 months, written quotations available on request.
Contract Hire is a car lease that allows you to drive a new vehicle over an agreed period of time and mileage. This gives you cost-effective access to new vehicles and none of those large drops in value normally associated with owning a new vehicle outright. You also have the option to include vehicle service maintenance and repairs in a maintenance rental, which means you can budget predictably for all your business motoring. Contract Hire can have VAT benefits such as 50% of your VAT on contract hire payments can be claimed back and 100% of VAT on a maintenance rental can be reclaimed. Leased cars are not counted as assets. Therefore your company’s balance sheet will show an immediate improvement in the “rate of return” on capital employed (via the asset value of the balance sheet being reduced).
