Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is a popular method of funding your car when taking a Cash for Car option.
It is essentially a purchase agreement where the monthly payment is kept low by the implementation of a Guaranteed Future Value (GFV).

The GFV is stated at the outset of the contract and is determined by your annual mileage. At the end of the contract term, you have three options:

  1. Hand back the car to the finance company.
    (An excess mileage charge may be incurred if you exceed the stated mileage).
  2. Purchase the vehicle at the GFV value.
    (Regardless of market value. A re financing package can be arranged by Smart Lease.
  3. Part-exchange the vehicle.
    (This is the most popular option as it allows you the possibility of taking equity from the difference between the part-exchange and GFV figure on the car. This amount can be used as a deposit on your next vehicle).

Full Maintenance contract can be included with this funding method.
