    Has anyone ever had anything from them? or know someone that has?

    Want to find out what they are like and whether they are a rip off or ok?

    Our washing machine has just packed up, it does every time we move, i have had it 10 years, i know i can get it fixed again, but im wondering now whether its time for a new one, i cant afford one out right, and cant get credit, so this buy as you view thing would be the only way i could do it.

    Anything anyone knows about them would be great.

    Not heard about them but if they are anything like bright house you will pay a fortune over time because they don't credit check ...

    yeah the interest is 20%, i dont mind that to much, the lady on the phone said they come out every 8 weeks to empty the coin meter, if i have to put, say £50 in every 8 weeks, when they come if there is more in there they give me back the diffrence, if there is less, then i will have to make it up in cash.

    It all sounds a bit to good to be true so im doubtful lol

    I rent my washing machine and my dryer from a company near me
    is £34 for the month, i've done this because me and appliances don't get on
    and they upgrade them every year
    I know i have paid more than if i bought one, but i break things :(

    Anything like this near you Layla?

    Yeah what about hiring one? we used to hire our TV for something like £11 a month from a branch of hughes electrical. Its quite a good idea really, as you can always have the latest model, and if it stops working they just relace it. You could do that short term till you can buy your own. Although if its an option its worth sopping round on deals in new ones. Our one we had to ditch when we moved, and I got a brand new inidsit washer (again from Hughes) for £179, and its great!
