The exact initial/deposit payment you pay will be tailored to you. The higher the upfront /deposit payment, the lower your on-going monthly amounts will be and vice versa. Most of our deals are structured with an initial/deposit payment equal to 3, 6 or 9 months' worth of monthly payments, however our website (and our consultants) will allow you to adjust this up and down so that you can find the rate that works best for you.
Whilst the majority of customers make a deposit (also termed an 'initial' or 'upfront' payment) as it helps to lower their monthly payments, it is not an absolute requirement. If you do not wish to pay a deposit, this is possible, however, your monthly payments will be higher as a result.
We have established partnerships with some of the biggest finance names in the UK including Lex, Network (the broker division of Lease Plan), Alphabet, Arval, Santander, ALD and Hitachi. However, we do have relationships with other well-known finance companies.
Occasionally a guarantor and/or joint application will be accepted but this is entirely dependent upon the finance company and decisions are made on a case-by-case basis.
