General FAQs for Finance

Is it easy to do?

Yes! If your order value is more than £1000 and is being delivered to your UK billing address, you will be offered this payment method when you go to check out. Select it and follow the instructions on the screen, entering details as required and we’ll do the rest. You can even sign the agreement electronically.

Is there a deposit to pay?

Yes. You can pay as little as 10% of your order value. You will be asked for your card details to pay your deposit after you have completed your loan application and the application has been accepted.

How much time have I got to repay this?

It depends on how much you spend. The shortest loan term is 12 months but you may take up to 24 months. The options open to you will be presented to you on our finance calculator which can be found on the product pages and basket page of the checkout.

When do I start paying?

Your monthly repayments generally start one month after your order has been delivered.

Are there any hidden extras?

No. Interest free credit is exactly that. Your deposit plus your loan amount will equal the total order value on the day you placed it. There are no arrangement fees or hidden extras.

Can I request delivery to an address other than my home?

No. In order to safeguard against fraudulent applications, we regret that we are only able to deliver goods to the UK home address of the person applying for interest free credit.

When will I get my delivery?

As soon as we receive confirmation from Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance that your application has been successful, we will process your order as normal and advise you of an estimated delivery date.

Your questions answered

Here's some of the most commonly asked questions Hitachi receive regarding online finance.

Within minutes of your application being approved, you will be presented with the options to either e-sign or print and return your finance agreement.

If you choose to e-sign your agreement, a PDF of your agreement will be displayed on screen. You should read the agreement carefully before clicking all the relevant sections agreeing to its terms.

Note that products will not be allocated to your order until your completed and signed agreement is returned and received by Hitachi Personal Finance. Shipment of your goods will follow soon after your agreement has been returned and received, and your deposit has been paid.

Will you credit score me and if so, what does this mean?

Credit scoring is the process used by financial services companies to evaluate the credit risk of new applicants. This technique will be applied to your application for online finance. Credit scoring works by awarding points for each answer given on the application form such as age, income and occupation, together with information obtained from credit reference agencies.

This information allows consistent decisions to be provided, ensuring all applicants are treated fairly. Credit scoring does not discriminate on the grounds of sex, race, religion or disability.

If you decline my application, what is the reason?

In addition to credit scoring, Hitachi also takes into account confirmation of your identity, validation of certain application details, existing commitments and information held at the credit reference agencies. Though Hitachi is unable to provide you with a main reason for the decline of your application, it is usually based on one, or a combination of the following:

  • Your credit score (please note that every finance company will score you differently)
  • Adverse credit reference agency information
  • You are considered to be overcommitted
  • You are aged under 18
  • Your existing account performance with other lenders

What type of information do credit reference agencies hold about me?

Some of the information is public information, for example electoral roll, County Court Judgements and bankruptcies. Other lenders may also file information about accounts you hold with them for instance this could include your payment history and outstanding balance on these accounts. Any requests for credit, where a credit reference search has been undertaken, will also be filed, although the result of the request is not recorded.

How do I obtain a copy of this information?

You should send a cheque for £2.00 made payable to the relevant credit reference agency, together with details of all addresses at which you have lived over the last 6 years:

  • Experian Limited, Customer Support Centre, PO Box 9000, Nottingham, NG80 7WF
  • Equifax Ltd., Customer Service Centre, PO Box 10036, Leicester, LE3 4FS
  • TransUnion International UK Limited, Consumer Services, PO Box 491, Leeds, LS3 1WZ

The above listed agencies will provide details of information relating to these addresses. If you believe that the information is incorrect, you can ask the agency to correct it.

If my application is not successful, can I re-apply?

Yes. We acknowledge that circumstances change and just because a previous application has been refused, it does not mean that a further request will automatically be turned down. We do suggest however, that you leave at least 6 months between applications.

Who is eligible to apply for online finance?

To apply for online finance, you must be over the age of 18, work at least 16 hours a week, or be retired with an income. You must also be a resident of the United Kingdom and have lived in the UK for the last 12 months or more.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer online finance to residents of Eire. Homemakers aren't excluded from applying under their own names; however the employment details of your spouse / partner will be required in order to process your application.
