Things to remember about our team here at Leodis Financial when looking for the finance partner to help you:-

Finance Options for Classic Cars

Contract Hire

It is fundamentally a sort of long term leasing with set recurring instalments which you have to pay monthly based on a predetermined mileage. It is a common method of car funding and is increasing as a form of personal leasing.

Purchase Hire

Purchase hire is a very versatile Prestige classic car financing option. Payments are made on a monthly basis, with the opportunity to purchase the car at the end of the agreement.

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

PCP arrangements are amongst the most well-known types of car financing. It includes an initial payment, followed by fixed monthly installments, and a final balloon payment. You can either return the vehicle or pay a balloon payment to keep it at the conclusion of the term.

Lease Purchase

If you wish to own the vehicle at the end of the agreement, a Conditional Sale is a perfect option. Customers typically pay a cash payment or trade in their existing vehicle, then pay predetermined monthly installments over a certain length of time. In lease purchase, there is the flexibility of no mileage restrictions, service and maintenance needs, or additional costs, and possession of the vehicle is transferred at the end of the contract.

Rate Variable

For agreements on high-value vehicles, variable interest rate lending alternatives exist. Variable rate agreements track the interest rate based on the funder's house base rate, it is different than other finance options where interest is fixed.

Refinancing Solutions for Classic Cars

Refinancing the entire transaction or a single balloon payment are the two options available for refinancing the car.

Refinance The Entire Agreement

You can almost immediately take out a separate loan agreement on your classic car after you’ve purchased it. For example, you may have signed a contract, purchased your classic car, and then discovered that you could have obtained a better loan rate from a different lender, or that your present offer no longer meets your needs.

Balloon Refinance

In case you have leased your car on a PCP and don’t have the cash to make the lump sum payment, your choices with your current lender are to return the car or work out a new car agreement, but there is one more thing we can do.
The cost of the final payment to your existing lender would be covered by a balloon finance contract, which would be broken down into much more bearable monthly installments.
Your current transaction would be concluded with a one-time payment immediately after you signed an agreement with your new lender, and you will start paying the new charges to your new lender on the signed agreements.
