All you need to know about leasing a new Apple MacBook
Is the Apple MacBook new?
Yes and the latest models.
Are there any extra costs over and above the prices?
No, though there is an Admin Fee shown on the paperwork for the MacBook which is normally £50
How quick is delivery of the MacBook?
Normally 2-3 days though ask us and we can do it quicker.
Is delivery included in the costs of the MacBook?
Yes. We can deliver on a Saturday or Sunday to suit.
What if my Company has a CCJ or a poor credit history. Can I still lease a MacBook?
We may need to ask for Personal Indemnities and may ask for additional info to prove affordability such as a bank statement.
Do prices quoted for the MacBooks exclude VAT?
Yes they all do.
How competitive are HardSoft lease prices on the MacBook?
Very. Established for thirty years HardSoft invented IT leasing to small businesses and though not always the cheapest our service and overall package remains the best.
Why is the ‘Pure-Rental’ price of the MacBook cheaper?
Because you do not have the right to own the MacBook at the expiry of the lease. It is simply a long-term hire whereby you return the equipment at the expiry.
I am a home user, can I still lease a MacBook?
No you can’t, as it is legally not allowed. HardSoft do offer interest free credit on Apple MacBooks. Have a look at https://interestfree.hardsoftcomputers.co.uk/
Does HardSoft add Insurance and add it to the direct debit after delivery?
No, we don’t but we may do so if you cannot confirm that you have your own cover in place. If we are forced to add insurance, it is about £110 per annum per MacBook. This is a very competitive ‘all-risks’ policy.
When is the first direct debit paid for my new MacBook?
It’s is paid on the first of the month following delivery.
Is there an APR on the lease of the MacBook?
Leasing is a ‘hire agreement’ and therefore is not subject to any APR calculations.
Are you Apple Authorised?
Yes we are and have been for over ten years. Our registration with Apple is 300206. We are also regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority
Can I take my MacBook to an Apple Store for repair?
You can only in the first year. You will find our Three years No Quibble warranty is better than Apple Care. It includes a Loan MacBook whilst yours is away being repaired.
How long is the Lease?
It’s three years though remember you can cancel and return MacBook after two years or Renew into a new contract – just like a mobile phone deal.
Do I have to pay a lump sum at the end to own the MacBook?
Our popular Flexi-Lease includes the option to own for normally £1. If you choose the cheaper ‘Pure-Rental’ then yes, you will need to buy the equipment at the then market price.
I am a student, can I lease a MacBook?
No. Unfortunately offers are only for business users including the self-employed.
Is there a ‘cooling off period’ when I lease a MacBook?
No. Unless you are a Sole Trader where the Consumer Credit Act is applicable.
