  • Find Out More About Car Finance at Avalon

When you’re buying a car, either brand new or pre-loved, financing the purchase with monthly payments is a very common route to take. With flexible deals available, it’s possible to strike an agreement that suits your budget, and finance for used cars is something we’re very used to helping our customers with at Avalon Motor Company

Why Choose Car Finance? 

Buying a car is a significant purchase, so instead of paying the entire cost of a car upfront, car finance means that you borrow the money from a lender, and repay the sum through a series of monthly instalments. This allows you to pay a deposit and spread the rest of the cost comfortably, removing the stress and hassle of arranging your own private loan. 

Types of Finance

Choosing the right finance for you will depend on your circumstances, and how you personally approach vehicle ownership. These are the two types of car finance available: 


If you regularly change your car, a Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) may be for you. This type of deal can help you get behind the wheel of a newer or more expensive car, as the monthly repayments are generally cheaper. The amount you pay will depend on the deposit you can afford, the length of time you spread the cost over, the mileage limit, and the predicted value of the vehicle at the end of the term. 

At the end of the agreement, you have the option of paying a final sum (known as a balloon payment), handing the car back (as long as it’s in good condition and you haven’t exceeded the mileage limit), or exchanging it for your next car.

A Hire Purchase agreement sees you pay fixed payments over a period of up to 5 years. Just as with a PCP agreement, the amount you pay depends on your deposit and the length of the agreement. However, there’s no mileage limit, and at the end of the term, you own the car.
