What areas do Buy As You View operate in and how do I find out if you cover my area?
Buy As You View will continue to service existing products and existing agreements for customers in the usual way, no matter where in the UK they live.
Can I purchase a product online?
Unfortunately Buy As You View is not in a position to accept new orders, but existing agreements are unaffected.
Is there a service package available for the products?
Unfortunately Buy As You View is not in a position to enter into new agreements for service packages, but existing service packages are unaffected by the Administration. You should continue to make your payments and make any claims in the usual way.
Do the products belong to me straight away?
As with any hire purchase agreement, as soon as you have made your last payment, the product(s) will then be yours.
What is the smart meter?
All customers are required to have a Smart Meter, which discreetly connects to your TV. If you haven’t purchased a TV from us, we’ll connect it to your existing TV while it’s used to pay for products such as sofas, beds, appliances or other electricals. If you fail to make payments on time, the meter will display the amount required in order to bring your account up to date, and after sufficient notice, may restrict the use of the television if payments aren’t maintained. The meter works in conjunction with your Direct Debit payments.
How do I pay?
You should continue to make payments in the usual way, as your existing product agreements are unaffected by the Administration – direct debits will be collected as normal, paypoint customers should continue to pay as normal, and for cash-paying customers, Customer Account Managers will continue to make their usual visits.
What happens if I struggle with payments or I’m having financial difficulties?
As a responsible lender, we want to help you keep on top of your finances. Our Smart Meter helps us to work with you to keep your payments manageable. If you are struggling with payments, we’ll work with you to help you get back on track and we won’t charge you late fees. Our friendly customer support team is available Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:30pm via email or telephone to help you with any queries you may have. *There are a number of organisations that can help you with debt advice and management, please visit our Debt Advice page for further information.
