Lease or hire purchase??

Hi guys!

Is leasing or getting hire purchase better? I'm not really seeing much difference. I think if they lease and hand the car back with scratches, dinks in alloys etc I might have to pay repairs, but hire purchase the guy seemed to suggest they don't take but notice as the car will just go to auction!! :-/ I'm so confused.

Hi Cat I leased for 6 years then purchased I would never lease again, too expensive, but it does in some ways depend on how much mileage you do as well.  smile

Hi evan
The quotes I've been given do seem high, but I've spent soooooo much on repairs in the last 6 months :-/ the lease price they've given me works out cheaper than the hp price they gave me. I'm so confused :-?

Depends if you want a spanking brand new car or not...

You can get very low mileage 3-4 year old cars for a snip...

Hi Cat, it is dependent on what mileage you do, it didn't suit me to lease as I am doing over the 30k mileage excess penalty, so it does vary from one instructor to the next. Chris makes a very good point above.

I would certainly make the Dealerships work hard for your business, I know the local Suzuki garage is doing some good deals on Swifts which are nice little tuition cars and quite a few of the local indies have taken them up on the deal.

Take your time do your sums and look at your projections for the next 12 months, I am sure you have anyway. Above all push hard for a deal and especially the aftersales which to me is more important than anything.

Good luck  smile

I'm not pratically wanting a brand new car, but after spending 4k and that figure doesn't include loss of earnings, on a 4 year old SEAT Ibiza, I want something I am not responsible for!! If it breaks it's someone else problem.

I am doing under the 30k as I only work part time, around my children. I will try Suzuki too, thank you!

You are probably better of leasing, you can get two year old ones on special deals for 6 months but the best ones are for to years but that is a bigger commitment.

try http://www.cacars.co.uk/  part of acclaim driving school they sell them too
