All you need to know on leasing a new Apple iMac or Mac Pro
Are prices of your iMac leasing excluding VAT?
Yes they do. VAT is reclaimable in the normal way.
Is HardSoft the cheapest place to lease an iMac?
Yes, our package is always the best value. Happy always to beat any comparable quotation.
What is ‘Pure-Rental’ and why is it cheaper than the ‘Flexi-Lease’ by nearly 20%?
You waiver the ownership option and we collect and sell the iMac. ‘Pure Rental’ is a bit like contract hire and there are no options to Renew and upgrade in the deal..
Are the Apple Macs new?
Yes and are all the latest specs.
Are there any extra costs when I lease a Apple Mac?
No, though there is an Administration Fee shown on the lease paperwork. This is normally £50 and collected by direct debit.
Are HardSoft officially Apple Authorised to offer Apple computers?
Certainly yes and we have been for nearly ten years. Our official ID with Apple is 300206.
How quick is delivery and is it free?
Normally a couple of days but we should be able to deliver quicker and yes delivery of the iMac or Mac Pro is free.
Can I still lese an iMac or Mac Pro is my company has a poor credit rating?
Yes but will need to ask for Personal Guarantees and may ask for additional info to prove affordability. This is usually a bank statement. Any information provided is treated in the strictest confidence.
I am a home user, can I still lease from you?
Unfortunately not but all Apple iMac computers are available on zero per cent interest free finance. Go along to https://interestfree.hardsoftcomputers.co.uk/
Is insurance included?
No not on Apple Desktops. We can add Insurance and add it to the direct debit after delivery if you don’t have any policy in place. Insuring an iMac is £110 annually per iMac, which is a competitive fee on an ‘all-risks’ policy.
When is the first payment?
Its paid on the first day of the month after delivery. This is paid by direct debit
How long is the Lease?
It’s three years though if you opt for the ‘Flexi-Lease’ you can choose cancel and return the Apple iMac or Mac Desktop After two years. This is subject to a £75 collection and reprocessing fee. No further payments would be made.
Do I have to pay a large lump sum at the end to own the Apple iMac?
Our popular Flexi-Lease scheme includes the option to own for normally £1. If you choose the cheaper ‘Pure-Rental’ then yes, you will need to buy the iMacs at the then fair market value.
Can you register the Apple equipment under the Apple Device Enrolment Program
Yes, we can. Our DEP reference number is 6DBD7F0. Only Apple Macs and iPads from an Apple Store or an Authorised stockist such as HardSoft can be registered under DEP. HardSoft can assist with VPP as well.
Do you offer an Mobile Device Management for iMacs?
Yes we do we provide VM Ware Airwatch as our solution. This is approx. 80 pence per week extra per iMac or iPad.
It the iMac needs repairing under your three year warranty can I take it into an Apple Store?|
You can do but only in the first year. You will find our No Quibble three year warranty is better than Apple Care as it includes a Loan Mac whilst yours is being repaired. The Loan Mac would be a MacBook laptop of equivalent spec and is generally delivered the following day.
Can I collect the order from your office?
Yes, you can though it would be from our Sawbridgeworth HQ and the collection needs to be arranged in advance.
Does the Financial Conduct Authority control HardSoft?
Yes, our FCA registration is referenced under FRN 716391
