FAQs
Does BoConcept Scotland offer any discount for up-front or cash payments?

At BoConcept we work hard to deliver the best value to our customers at all times, and every item in our collection is priced accordingly. We believe that everyone deserves access to great design, so with this in mind, we do not offer any discounts to those placing large orders or in a position to make upfront or cash payments. Why should one person pay more for something than someone else?

DEPOSIT DOWN

The next step in breaking the overall sum of your balance into smaller chunks, Deposit Down is a credit free option where you will pay a deposit (minimum 35% of the order value) upon placing the order for your design, followed by the remainder of the balance one week before your delivery.

35% Deposit£1750.00
Payment one week prior to delivery£3250.00
Total Amount to Pay£5000.00

INTEREST FREE CREDIT

This option allows you to spread your costs over twelve fixed monthly payments, interest-free. We will ask for a deposit (minimum 15% of the order value) at the point of order, then the remaining balance will be split into equal monthly payments spread over a maximum of 12 months.

When setting up your agreement you can choose to defer the starting date of your repayments by up to 12 months.

You can pay off any or all of your finance balance, in as many or as little payments as you like, during the deferral period. There is no charge from Hitachi to do this. If you pay off your finance balance in full within the deferral period, you will not be charged any interest and your agreement will be ended.

The repayments will start at the end of the deferral period. Hitachi will write to you to let you know when this period is almost over.

No. Neither Hitachi nor BoConcept will charge you for setting up the payment agreement, or for any early payments or settlement.
