Hippo Motor Finance – How It Works

Hippo Motor Finance – How It Works

Why have your dream car parked in your desktop background if you can have it parked in your driveway?

Car finance aims to help you get your desired car without needing to splash out a huge lump sum to buy it outright. For many, the prospect of buying a car may seem unrealistic and unaffordable, however, car finance can open doors. Car finance is an agreement for a set period, typically 24-60 months, whereby you make pre-agreed monthly payments.

  1. Choosing a car

At Hippo Motor Finance our priority is to make the financing process simple and efficient for you, hence, we arrange both the finance and vehicle for you.

This is our Hippo Leasing site, however, all cars with ‘used special’ are available in stock and on finance, not just lease. We can source most cars from 2011 onwards so if you cannot see the car you are interested in, we may still be able to help you.

With thousands of cars to choose from, you truly can be spoilt for choice. Our dedicated account managers are always on hand to help you choose the right vehicle to suit your needs and budget. Call us on 01254 956 777 or drop us an email to

  1. Apply for car finance

Simply, apply by filling in the short form here and our account managers will be in touch within a couple of hours the very same day to discuss some quotes and the finance options available to you. This initial enquiry would not tie you to a finance agreement and no credit checks are completed until you have spoken to an account manager and have agreed to a credit check being completed.

  1. Delivery/Collection

Once approved, the car can be delivered within just 10 days. No matter where you are in the UK, from the Southern Coast to Northern Ireland, we can deliver your new car to your door.

All offers are subject to change at any time, you must be 18 or over and finance is subject to status, vehicle availability and terms and conditions apply. We can introduce you to a limited number of finance companies, a commission may be received. Failure to maintain payments may result in termination of your agreement and the vehicle being returned, this could affect your credit rating and make it more difficult to obtain credit in the future.

We purchase a wide variety of vehicles from all over the country to ensure the best quality and value for our customers, all of our cars go through a thorough inspection process and if they do not meet our standards we do not sell them. We endeavour to inform our customers (where possible) the provenance of the vehicle they are buying and as such we will always inform you if the vehicle has previously been either an ex fleet or hire car. Should your vehicle be an ex hire/fleet car please do not be concerned as we would never value this vehicle differently when you come to part exchange it and there is no difference to the CAP valuation either.

You should try and estimate the distance you will travel as accurately as possible to try and avoid excess mileage charges at the end of your contract.
