NZ Rockshops and Finance Now are happy to be able to bring you one of the most secure and competitive financing options available in New Zealand. Along with Hire Purchase and Personal Finance, we are also able to offer Business Finance and Business Rental options. Personal Finance may be applied for online from this site, Business Finance and Business Rental options will need to be discussed with your local branch (you can find contact details here).
Below are the questions that frequently arise with regard to Hire Purchase, hopefully your question is answered here. If not, please feel free to email Rockshop Online with your query.
- Credit Cards accrue interest on a daily basis, so unless you clear the amount every 55 days (approx) you will be paying interest, upon interest.
- Save your credit card for a rainy day or an emergency.
- You pay fixed payments over a known period - which can help with budgeting.
- Increased buying power - Buy what you WANT not what you can afford.
- Hire Purchase interest is tax deductible.
- All Finance is done through Finance Now, the same company that we use in-store.
- The Interest Rate is 19.40%, same as an in-store finance sale.
- There is a $55 booking fee and a $2.75 per month administration fee, which all the finance figures on this site show, this is the same as our in-store booking fee.
- Choose your own term from 6 - 36 months.
- Consumer Credit Insurance is available, and it is optional although we strongly recommend you take it. Amongst other benefits, the prime benefit for musicians is cover for theft from a locked vehicle or locked premises. The added cost is a mere fraction of what it would cost if it were stolen and it wasn't at home. You can arrange this when you come into the store to finalise the paperwork.
- You can apply for 'no deposit' finance, same as in-store. Paying a deposit reduces your repayment amount.
- If the online approval system returns a DECLINED result - do not panic. It's not a categorical decline. You can request that a Senior Lender reviews the application, send Rockshop Online an email using the page above. The application will reviewed by a Finance Now Senior Lender during business hours. Remember that Finance Now WANTS to lend you the money and they will look for all ways in their power to lend the money. This online system is great, but it isn't perfect.
- If the system declines you, and a Senior Lender also returns a decline there is another application method that we can try with Finance Now which is called a 'non-conforming application'. This is a broader spectrum approval which covers first time borrowers, and borrowers with past credit issues. It's a chance for people to set or reset their credit history with Finance Now. The interest rate is 24.9%, $55 booking fee and $2.75 per month administration fee. The increased interest rate makes approximately $30 difference per thousand dollars over a 12 mth contract. What this means is that you CAN buy that gear NOW.
- You will need to come into a branch to sign the financial paperwork and collect the goods. When you do this, you will need to bring in some form of ID for us to witness. Acceptable forms of ID are drivers licences, Cards with your name embossed on them (most Credit Cards and SOME bank cards). If you do not bring this with, we can not complete the sale.
Unfortunately, we can't complete the entire transaction online, this process is just a 'pre-approval'. If you are unable to get into a branch, please call your nearest branch or email us so we can work out a form of payment for you.
- When the system APPROVEs you, it will give you a letter to print out and bring into the store. Once you bring this in, we will match it up with our system and be able to complete the paperwork. If you have opted to pay a deposit, this is when you should bring it in. We do not accept personal cheques - Cash, Credit Card or EFTPOS only for deposits.
- When you click on the Finance Now online application link, you are redirected to a secure iFrame hosted on Finance Now's secure server. You can be assured that your details entered will be confidential.
