However there is another way that you can finance a car purchase and this is by taking hire purchase. You will have to consider both options and weigh them up against the other before making the most suitable choice for your needs.


If you will rather not take car finance online but take hire purchase at the time of buying the vehicle then you should ensure that you know the full details of any agreement you are considering signing. Read over the terms and conditions and be sure that you know how much you will be paying out in total for the car loan taken this way. One of the benefits of taking out finance this way is that you will be able to put down a deposit on the vehicle. There will be a minimum deposit but you could put down as much over this amount as you wanted. This means you have less to borrow and so the repayments could work out less per month than with a personal loan. The downside is that you will not be the owner of the car until you had made the very last repayment and during this time if you should default on the loan then you will be at risk of the lender taking back the vehicle.


When considering car finance online by either a secured or unsecured loan then you should work out which method of borrowing will be the most suitable for your situation. If the vehicle is a second hand model and you do not have to borrow a great deal of money then you might want to consider an unsecured loan. If you want to borrow a substantial sum of money for a top of the range new car straight from the showroom then you might have to consider taking a secured loan. The secured allows you to borrow more than the unsecured and you may be able to spread out the monthly repayments for the borrowing over a much longer period of time to help keep down the cost of the monthly repayments. However you will have to weigh up that the vehicle will cost a great deal more as you will be paying more in interest. You also have to take into consideration that you will have to put something up as security against the borrowing and this will have to be something of substantial value which could be your home.
