Since 2012 we have offered this revolutionary finance product, and been able to assist hundreds of customers to buy a car on Pay As You Go Finance with us.

Pay as You Go Car Finance is a Hire Purchase (HP) agreement. More info on how a HP agreement works can be found on this website but in a nutshell it means that you are essentially hiring the car until you make your final repayment at which point you full own the vehicle.
Once we have a finance acceptance in place, and you have chosen a car from our used cars stock list or we have sourced you a vehicle using our car finder service, The Car Finance Company arrange to have a payment reminder device fitted to your vehicle by one of their auto electricians. It is not visible or accessible to the customer, however you will receive a small credit card size pin device to keep in the car.
The system works by sending you a nine digit code that you will need to enter into your device once your monthly finance payment has cleared from your bank.
When your next payment is due you will here a beep or two from your payment reminder device reminding you that your payment is due and to contact the finance company in the event you don’t have a direct debit arrangement set up.
You continue to pay the car finance company over the agreement length typically 24 – 48 months and enter the pin on a monthly basis.
