Car Finance by Platts of Marlow

Why do our customers decide to use our finance options when it comes to purchasing their car?

Not only can it speed things along, it is often more straight forward than dealing with your bank or online, decisions are often immediate and the rates of interest competitive.

On new Fords there is often a subsidised rate of interest from Ford and sometimes they will give you an amount towards a deposit, to help lower your monthly payment.

Using Ford Credit, which is one of the world's largest automotive finance companies, we have helped thousands of customers buy their vehicles by providing finance plans that are flexible, affordable and straightforward to arrange. We also have a range of finance offers which make owning your next Ford more affordable than ever.

This plan is ideal if you want to renew your car more often, benefiting from savings on future costs that can arise with long term ownership whilst being provided with the security of an Optional Final Payment.

The benefits of Ford Options:

  • Replace your Ford more often - giving you the best safety, performance and economy every time you change.
  • Reduce your risk - your Optional Final Payment protects you against unexpected falls in used car prices.
  • Flexibility - at the end of the agreement you can Renew, Return or Retain your Ford
  • Different agreement terms - choose either 12, 24 or 36 months
  • Deposits as little as 0%

At the end of the agreement you have a choice of three options:

Option 1 - Renew your Ford

With Ford Options, you can enjoy all the benefits of a new car, more often. If you would like to renew your Ford you can trade it in with us, or even sell it privately, once you have settled your account. Any excess value over the Optional Final Payment can be used as a deposit towards your next Ford.

Option 2 - Return your Ford

Your pre-agreed Optional Final Payment gives you protection against any unexpected fall in used car prices. If you would like to return your car we will complete a vehicle appraisal. Assuming you car is within agreed mileage, your account is up to date and in good condition (fair wear and tear expected) there will be nothing further to pay.

Option 3 - Keep your Ford

Ford Options also gives you the flexibility to own the car at the end of the agreement. All you need to do is arrange payment of the Optional Final Payment plus the purchase fee.

We will contact you before the end of the agreement so you have plenty of time to decide which option is right for you, and of course tell you about the new offers we have at the time.

A variation of the Ford Options plan, the Ford Options Cashplan offers the same security of an Optional Final Payment but with the added benefit of no monthly payments.

The benefits of Ford Options Cashplan

  • Ford Options Cashplan provides all of the flexibility of Ford Options whilst freeing you from the need to make regular payments.
  • No regular payments are ideal if you have a cash sum available - but with all the benefits of the regular Ford Options product.
  • Replace your Ford more often - giving you the best safety, performance, design and economy every time you change your car.
  • Reduce your risk - your Optional Final Payment protects you against unexpected falls in used car prices.
  • Flexibility - at the end of the agreement you can Renew, Return or Retain your Ford (see below).
  • Different agreement terms - choose either 12, 24 or 36 months.

Hire purchase is a traditional form of finance that is convenient and straightforward to arrange as well as being an alternative option if you have a large deposit, or plan to keep the car longer.

The Benefits of Hire Purchase

  • Regular monthly payments to suit your needs
  • Flexible repayment terms from 12 to 60 months
  • At the end of the agreement, assuming all payments have been made, you own the car.
  • Deposits as little as 0%
