Personal Contract Hire (PCH) Vs Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

PCH and PCP are popular ways to finance a car, but need to be settled before you can sell you car.

There is one big difference between PCH and PCP. With PCP you have the option to purchase the car at the end of the agreement and become the registered owner, whereas with PCH you have no option but to hand it back.

PCP often involves a final lump sum payment called a ‘balloon payment’. This payment is also known as the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value (GMFV). The amount you pay per month is determined based on how much value your car is expected to lose during the term of the agreement. If the car that you buy is expected to depreciate at a slow rate, then the monthly payments will be lower than a car of the same value that is expected to depreciate quickly. This means that there are often good deals on popular makes like Mercedes, BMW and Audi. When you come to the end of your PCP deal, if you don’t want to purchase the car you can just hand it back and walk away.

With both PCH and PCP the lender could repossess the car without a court order. But for PCP, once you have paid at least a third of the total amount payable, they can’t repossess it without a court order.
