Finance & Insurance Options

FINANCE

We understand that paying a lump sum upfront isn’t always possible for bigger purchases like mobility scooters, powerchairs, and rise and recliner chairs. This should not stop you from being able to buy equipment that can help you lead a comfortable and independent life, so you may want to take a look at our finance schemes.

Our team can arrange a finance scheme specifically for you that will suit your budget and requirements. If you’re already using your Personal Independent Payment, Disability Living Allowance, or War Pension on other equipment, then a finance scheme may be the safest alternative method of payment. We can look at the best options for you, whether it’s a personal loan or hire purchase. Just have a chat with one of our friendly advisors to find out more details.

Personal Loan

Personal loans are a commonly used on finance schemes. This entails the individual borrowing the full amount for the item that they are buying, and then paying it back at a fixed amount over an agreed period of time.

Once you’ve chosen the product you’d like to purchase on finance from us, one of our team will complete an application form with you. This will then be sent to our finance partner (First Senior Finance) who will call you to confirm all your details and that you’re happy to go forward with the application and financial arrangements.

If you are approved, you need to pay a pre-agreed deposit to Yorkshire Care Equipment to secure your item. Once you receive the product, our finance partner will pay us the remaining amount on your behalf. You will then pay your pre-agreed instalments back to our finance First Senior Finance for the agreed length of time until it is all repaid.

Hire Purchase

The hire purchase scheme is another way to buy goods from us without having to pay the full sum immediately. The client would hire the item from our finance partner, paying them back in instalments until you’ve reached the end of your plan where you will be given the option to buy the item.

When you have picked the item(s) you want to buy on hire purchase, one of our team members will go through an application form with you to be submitted to our finance partner. Once they have received your application, they will give you a call to ensure that all your details are correct and that you are happy to go forward with everything.

If your application is approved, you will then pay a pre-agreed deposit to Yorkshire Care Equipment. Once we have supplied you with the product, First Senior Finance will pay us the remainder of the amount. You will then hire the item from the finance company in pre-agreed amounts over a specified duration, with the option to purchase the product for a small fee when you have paid off the amount.
