Hire Purchase


Unwilling to spend a large amount of capital on an asset in one go? Our hire purchase facility means you can pay for it in manageable installments, spread over a period of time.

A convenient way to buy - with Hire Purchase

Hire purchase is a simple, well-established way to finance the acquisition of equipment and machinery for your business. You pay an initial deposit, and then the balance and interest through regular installments.

We buy the asset on your behalf and own it until you have made the final payment, when ownership transfers to you.
