A Hire Purchase is a commercial finance product where the customer hires the vehicle from the financier for a fixed monthly repayment over a set period of time. 

Under a Hire Purchase arrangement the financier agrees to purchase the car on behalf of the customer, and then hire it back to them over a set period of time. The customer has the use of the vehicle for the term of the contract but is not the owner of the vehicle. At the end of the contract term the customer takes ownership of the car.
