How Much Does it Cost?
Question: How much does it cost per month?
Answer: The product price divided by15
Example: £420 divided by 15 = £28 per month
Note: The minimal hire period is 4 months + the days remaining in the month, counted from the date when the hire agreement starts.
Question: Do you need to pay a deposit?
Answer: Yes. The deposit amount is the product price divided by 3
Example: £420 divided by 3 = £140 deposit (paid once)
Note: The deposit is paid just once and is refunded when the product is returned in good condition
Question: How much is the first payment?
Answer: The first payment is the deposit plus the hire cost of the first full month and the hire cost of the days remaining in the month, counted from the date when the hire agreement starts
Example: £140 (one-off deposit payment) + £28 (first full month hire charge) + the days remaining in the month the agreement was made. Thereafter, only £28 is paid per month.
Note: After the first payment, the normal, fixed hire amount is charged per month
