Motorcycle finance helps you spread the cost of a new or used motorcycle. Instead of paying the full amount upfront, you can pay monthly with interest. Black Horse offer a range of financial options to allow to get out on the road with a payment plan flexible to your needs, with different preference options available for your circumstances, such as Personal Loan, Hire Purchase and Personal Contract Purchase (PCP).
Each of these products works a little differently, but in general terms, the finance company will buy the motorcycle on your behalf and then you will repay the amount borrowed, plus interest - when you have paid the final repayment the motorcycle will be yours. The exception is Personal Loan where you own the motorcycle from the outset.
The choice is yours:
Dependant on the product you choose, you would typically pay a deposit and make monthly repayments from 1-5 years to tailor the finance to meet your budget. Where the product is secured against the motorcycle for the duration of the agreement (not in the case of a Personal Loan) the motorcycle will be owned by the finance company (not the dealer). You do not take title of the motorcycle until the final repayment is made.
What does being a guarantor mean?
Being a guarantor involves helping someone else get credit, such as a loan or mortgage. Acting as a guarantor, you “guarantee” someone else’s loan or mortgage by promising to repay the debt if they can’t afford to. It’s wise to only agree to being a guarantor for someone you know well. Often, parents will act as guarantors for their children, to help them take that first step onto the property ladder.
Can anyone be a guarantor?
Almost anyone can be a guarantor. It’s often a parent, spouse (as long as you have separate bank accounts), sister, brother, uncle or aunt, friend, or even a grandparent. However, you should only be a guarantor for someone you trust and are willing and able to cover the repayments for.
To be a guarantor you’ll need to be over 21 years old, with a good credit history and financial stability. If you’re a homeowner, this will add credibility to the application.
Whether you’re considering asking someone to be a guarantor, or you’ve been approached by a family member or friend in need, you need to be aware of the possible financial risks.
If you have poor or limited credit or you have had financial difficulty in the past we may be able to offer you finance*, however it may be from a sub-prime lender. Sub-primefinance is not guaranteed and may cost more than finance provided by a prime lender. We will try to obtain finance for you but there is no guarantee. It may be from a sub-prime lender, and if so, the cost of finance may likely be at a higher rate than prime lenders offer.
Please note you will not own the motorcycle and or scooter outright until all payments are made.
If you default on your finance payments, then the bike may be repossessed by the finance provider.
You must be 18 years or older to apply for finance.
