So you want to own a Mercedes Benz or any premium vehicle but the cash flow isn’t quite flowing? Well we’d all love to drive a premium car but when we look at the costs of just financing the vehicle it can be cause for a mini heart attack. If you’re looking to own a Mercedes Benz but are a bit strapped for cash then you’ve probably been looking at a number of car finance options to get an understanding of the market and most importantly to get the best deal that will suite your budget and lifestyle. The search can be quite overwhelming but there is a great solution; why not rent a Mercedes Benz with the intention of owning it? Well now you can with MercX.

About MercX

The company knows that rent to buy is fast becoming an attractive offer for most people to own a car because it is the most flexible and quickest way to finance a car. With this method you do not need a bank or an expensive vehicle finance facility to finance your car. The great thing about the company is that anyone can apply to own a Mercedes Benz or any other premium car even though you may be blacklisted. Looking for car finance whilst blacklisted can be very frustrating and discouraging because most financial houses will not consider your application because you are viewed as a risk. With MercX you can apply for the rent to own option and your application will be considered based on your affordability and not solely on your credit score.

The rent to own option of owning a vehicle means that you can rent a vehicle for a specified period of time chosen by yourself which can range between 24, 36, 48 or 60 months and at the end of the specified term you will own the vehicle after paying for 1 extra month of rental and registration which is what would be the purchase month.
