Why use Gates Finance?

There are many reasons to use Gates to fund your next vehicle purchase. This video will tell you why, in plain English

What is HP?

Hire purchase is the traditional way of funding a vehicle purchase. There are several benefits to using secured finance to pay for your new car rather than using an unsecured personal loan, your savings or your mortgage.

What is PCP?

A Personal Contract Purchase is the most common way of purchasing a new car in the UK, but it is increasing in popularity for buying a used car. The benefits include:

  • Afford a more expensive car
  • Lower your monthly repayments
  • Reduce the length of your agreement
  • Change your car more regularly

What is Lease Purchase?

Designed to reduce monthly payments by delaying part of the repayment to the end of the agreement. The monthly payment, deposit, annual mileage and final payment can all be adjusted to your needs, and the agreement can be settled at any time.
