Pay as you go car finance is a hire purchase agreement which means that you hire the car until you make all your monthly repayments including final payment and pay the option to purchase fee, after which you will own the car outright.
The pay as you go system is a payment system tailored to those who may have had poor credit history, CCJ’s, or who struggle obtaining finance as it does not allow the user to forget or neglect making a payment. The pay as you go system makes sure that you remember your payment whilst allowing you to get the car you want.
The pay as you go car finance system is also known as a payment reminder system. Once you have chosen your vehicle from a reputable motor dealer who is regulated by the FCA, and all the necessary finance documentation has been completed, the finance company will arrange for a Black Box Finance device to be fitted to your motor vehicle.
The system works by the finance company sending you a nine-digit code that you will need to enter manually into the device within forty-eight hours otherwise the code will expire. The device does not affect the smooth running of your car, nor does it monitor your driving style. A fully qualified specialist team fits all the devices. The system emits a series of beeps on starting the engine. The number of beeps is a reminder of when your next payment is due. Once your payment is due the device will emit a loud and continuous warning sound.
You can make a payment over the phone using a credit or debit card. Ideally you will have already made the payment by Direct Debit in which case you will have already received your code. Should you be unable to make a repayment or find yourself in arrears the finance company will normally investigate ways of arranging a payment plan with you, for example they will take the full contractual payment and split it over 3 months. Should you fail to make a payment, the vehicle will be rendered out of use. Always keep the finance company informed, they will discuss with you when you can make the payment and arrange a suitable payment plan. Late charges may be applied in these circumstances.
