What if my Company has a CCJ or a poor credit history, can I still lease a Surface Studio?
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 Surface Studios exclude VAT?
Yes they all do.
How competitive are HardSoft lease prices on the Surface Studios?
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 Surface Studio cheaper?
Because you do not have the right to own the Surface Pro at the expiry of the lease. It is simply a long-term hire whereby you return the equipment at the expiry.

No you can’t, as it is legally not allowed. HardSoft do offer interest free credit on Surface Studios. 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 product. This is a very competitive ‘all-risks’ policy.
When is the first direct debit paid for my new Surface Pro?
It is paid on the first of the month following delivery.
Is there an APR on the lease of the Surface Studio?
Leasing is a ‘hire agreement’ and therefore is not subject to any APR calculations.

How long is the Lease?
It's three years, though remember you can cancel and return the Surface Studio after two years or Renew into a new contract – just like a mobile phone deal.

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.
