Collect the furniture from your local collection point on production of supporting documents which confirm proof of ID and current home address, details along with a copy of your Interest Free credit forms. If you have opted to sign your agreement through an ‘e signature’ you must still down load a copy of your form and bring it with you.

Records of the documents produced will be made and kept securely with the collection details.

If you wish to go ahead, simply click on the interest free credit option in the checkout, and follow the instructions. In selecting this process you will be asked to create a temporary account with a password. This is necessary in case an instant decision cannot be made by the underwriters. They may require you to submit additional information to assist your application. The account will allow you to keep track of its progress.
The decision will be returned automatically either on the screen or via email directly from Hitachi Capital Finance. If you make a mistake, or are in any doubt please call us for assistance on 0800 804 8879.
Q. What happens after my online Interest Free Credit application has been approved?
Once your application has been accepted you will need to proceed with the ‘E signature’ solution. You will be presented with an electronic copy of the application directly on the screen and invited to click on the relevant boxes. Following final confirmation, your order will be processed by Furniture Village, and separate paperwork listing the items you have chosen, will be posted to the billing address provided. We strongly recommend that you print out your Interest Free Credit agreement and retain a copy for your own records.
On some occasions Hitachi Capital Finance may require you to sign the forms physically. If this is the case they will instruct you on screen and they will send the forms to you requesting a signature before proceeding with the order.
Please note: no documents will be sent to you unless you request these from Hitachi Capital Finance during your application process. There are clear buttons on screen to help you.
Your 14 day cooling off period, during which you may cancel the contract at anytime, starts the day after your E signature has been completed on the credit agreement. In cases where a personal signature has been requested, this period starts the day after the agreement is made. (This does not apply to loan applications made in store.).
IMPORTANT NOTE: Delivery or collection of your items cannot be made until Hitachi Capital Finance has confirmed with Furniture Village that your approved application has been processed and signed.
Q. When do I start paying my Interest Free Credit instalments?
Once 75% of your order’s total value has been delivered to your home address, the Interest Free Credit loan company will contact you to advise that the instalments will begin to be collected from your nominated bank account. Generally the first instalment is around 4 weeks after the delivery day.
Q. What happens if my online Interest Free Credit application is declined?
If, for whatever reason, your loan application is not approved, Hitachi Capital Finance will contact you immediately regarding their decision. Furniture Village will also contact you separately and ask if you would like to select another payment method to continue with your order.
Hitachi Capital Finance will send you by email or post a leaflet with details of how you can get further advice regarding their credit decision.
In the event that you choose to cancel your order, once you have advised us in writing, either by post or email, any deposits paid will be refunded back to your card. This, in some cases, can take up to 7 working days to be credited back to your account.
