Only thing I have ever bought on finance is a house, certainly wouldn't get finance on a vehicle that loses it's value at a rate of knots the older it gets, whereas houses rarely get go down.

ditto.

Although I have bought a couple of things on 0% when I couldn't beat the price.

Sorry but for some it’s not a choice, if they want a newish van they have no choice but to borrow. Don‘t forget even older vans can sell for more than £20,000. They only choice some have is wether or not to buy. There are no options that I would vote for. Also there will be posters on here who are in this position, I don’t think this is respecting their situation.

With regard to some posts, I'm adverse to borrowing money, only ever had one loan in my life, but for those who are happy to do it, why not? After all, the choice for some is to have something whilst they are young enough to get best enjoyment out of it, or wait until they are older and then might not get the best out of it. I've had friends who have borrowed to finance new cars their entire life, never heard one yet say "wish I hadn't".

Lots of folk here are up to their neck in it with buying new cars every 2 years, and theyre not cheap ones either, first hickup and its all gone, nop and as clarkson said on t gear get a job and work hard, either that or don a mask, opps forgot I'm doing that already.

If the deal is right for you then why not. Seems strange to me to just dismiss something on such a vague question as the OP. If offered a 0% finance deal why not take it.

In Yorkshire , you rarely get summat for nowt. Especially finance.
Apart from my first mortgage, i only ever borrowed to finance business expansions and stock..
We've been extremely fortunate in being able to negotiate good interest rates, by putting up a substantial deposit and paying the balance off from the increase in turnover.
A prospective buyer with a bucket of cash, will always get a better deal than Joe public.
If you're desperate to get this mega- van. Do it quickly.......
The spectre of inflation is being raised by the Powers that be, so that we won't be too shocked when it arrives.

You are starting to set parameters and terms on the deal though, The OP just asks a very simple question about using finance with no terms or parameters mentioned in the OP. Companies do at times do genuine deals at 0% interest to shift stock to make way for new incoming stock.
