Used car finance in Colchester & Chelmsford - Our speciality

There are a number of different finance options that will get the car of your dreams onto your driveway. We are experts in all the different methods and can explain them to you in clear terms, without jargon.

You have two main choices:

  • Hire Purchase (HP) - A straightforward loan secured on the car. The cost of borrowing varies depending on the size of the deposit and the time period you choose for paying back the loan.

  • Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) - A contract where you put a deposit down then pay a monthly amount for a number of years. At the end of that term, you either buy the car outright for a (pre-agreed) amount, give it back to the finance company or part-exchange the car, using its value as a deposit on your next car.

Pros and cons

In general terms, PCP's have lower monthly payments and HP has no lump sum to pay at the end. Which one you choose depends on your circumstances and long-term goals, we will happily take you through the pros and cons to make sure you make the choice for you. This is where Clearwater's expertise really comes in - the used car and finance specialists in Essex you can really trust.

We'll buy your car - Trade In Dealerships in Colchester and Chelmsford
