Twenty of MKM's UK branches now offer flexible packages on kitchen and bathroom finance to customers.

The UK’s largest independent builder’s merchant recently launched the scheme at MKM Home in Hull following on from 19 other branches nationwide.

The merchant is set to rollout the offering at further branches throughout the UK later this year, with 30 more expected to be live by the summer.

The success of the initial launch has prompted the roll-out to support more customers.

Finance packages are available across the merchant’s entire bathroom and kitchen product offering (based on minimum spend), including tiles.

Working in partnership with Novuna Personal Finance and Clear Compliance, it is the first time that MKM has offered financing on such a scale and across such as wide range of products.

Rob Barnes, Business Development Director at MKM, said: “Our competitive finance packages are designed to help customers spread the cost of any project, whatever the scale, and can be applied to a wide range of products.

“It is great to have already launched the offering at 20 of our branches nationwide and at our flagship MKM Home showroom in Hull, and we are looking forward to rolling our finance packages out to more branches throughout the year, helping more customers achieve the home of their dreams.”

Three different finance options are available. Customers can choose between interest-free credit; buy now, pay nothing for 12 months; and interest-bearing credit.

Branches can select the terms that are most relevant to their audience, with MKM Home Hull, for example, opting to offer up to five years interest-free credit, buy now pay nothing for 12 months, and spreading the cost over five years with interest-bearing credit.
