Vehicle leasing or car leasing, in short, is the use of a vehicle for a fixed period of time in exchange for an agreed amount of money.
Originally, more widely taken advantage of by businesses as a way of allocating vehicles for its members of staff, private individuals and sole traders also take advantage of car leasing. Mainly because leasing is a great way of acquiring a new vehicle without a large initial outlay.
At the end of the agreed term, the vehicle is returned to the leasing company (also known as the finance company) who then usually sell the vehicle via the British Car Auction.

Availability of car leasing deals
We try to secure stock car leasing deals that are eligible for a quick delivery due to demand. You will find some will be listed as "in stock" which means they are faster delivery. However, that could vary from 2-4 weeks dependant on the location and type of "stock".
If these car leasing vehicles are built and already in a compound, they could take up to 2-3 weeks to arrive with the dealer. Then dependant on the volume of car leasing deliveries, it could take 1-2 weeks to be delivered to the customer.
Often, the car leasing vehicles are on site with the dealer so delivery can take place after the ordering and finance documents have been done. Due to distance selling regulations, you may be required to wait 2 weeks before the vehicle will be released. So, a vehicle that is on-site could take 1-3 weeks for delivery.
If the car leasing vehicle is not in stock there are then two other types of 'availability'.
Pipeline stock deals - These car leasing deals are vehicles that are pre-ordered. They may or not be already built, however, pipeline vehicles mean they have already started the order process and will arrive faster than if they were ordered fresh from the factory.
Factory order - These car leasing deals are vehicles that have not yet been ordered. They will be available to order as a 'blank canvas' so you may be able to tailor-make your order. When ordering a factory order car leasing vehicle, we suggest you utilise the manufacturer configuration to gain full knowledge of the specifications. Although we will do all we can to provide accurate information, we are reliant on data that is subject to change, so the customer must be happy with the vehicle configuration they have selected.

As the name suggests Personal Contract Hire (also known as personal leasing) is simply contract hire but for individuals. Personal Contract Hire (PCH) is based on a fixed term contract where customers pay an agreed monthly charge for the use of a vehicle for a previously agreed period.
It benefits customers wishing to eliminate the financial risk associated with disposing of a vehicle. Contracts are usually taken over two, three or four years, providing a high level of flexibility. Some contracts can be formally extended beyond the end of contract date if required. Just ask and we can answer any of your questions regarding extending your contract.
PCH is very similar to business Contract Hire; both are based on a fixed annual mileage agreed on inception of a contract. You will need to decide how many miles you drive each year before quotations can be obtained. Once you have stated how many miles you drive in a year and considered which vehicle you would like to lease a quote can be created for you by one of our sales team.
Regulations with regard to making mileage amendments after contracts are live vary from funder to funder, so it is always better to be as accurate as you can be. If you do exceed the agreed allowance at the end of your contract you will pay an excess mileage charge, which will have been agreed upon prior to signing the finance agreement.
Please remember this when deciding upon your annual mileage. If you are looking to have predictable motoring costs adding maintenance to your monthly payment is easy. Maintenance is there to put your mind at rest should any challenges arise with your vehicle and generally covers servicing, routine maintenance, tyres, exhausts and batteries.
Please note that it is the responsibility of the person named on the finance agreement to arrange and pay for fully comprehensive insurance for the vehicle. It is important that the vehicle is returned in accordance with the guidelines set out in the 'Fair Wear and Tear Guide', a copy of which is made available to customers when they are near the end of their PCH agreement.
Contract Hire, sometimes referred to as an Operating Lease, is a long term rental agreement. Contracts range from 12 to 60 months and are tailored to the businesses requirements.
The Contract Hire Company reclaims the VAT on the original purchase, which reduces your monthly rentals (which are + VAT). Contract Hire is a very popular choice for VAT registered companies as they can claim back 50% of the VAT on the finance element for cars and generally 100% for commercials (subject to no private use, no exempt turnover and not being on the Flat Rate VAT Scheme).
On contracts with maintenance the VAT on the service element is 100% recoverable. One of the major benefits is that there are no disposal worries as the future value is underwritten by the leasing company. Another benefit of Contract Hire is that it is generally 'off balance sheet funding' (subject to legislation change) which means it can improve your gearing ratio (assets to borrowing ratio) and therefore possibly your borrowing ability in the future.
Vehicle leasing can be seen as being very similar to renting a car out where you will use that car for a certain period of time for a fixed monthly rental. Vehicle leasing allows for a choice to made from a variety of vehicles that we offer including the specific make, model, and specifications. Your leasing contract will be tailored for your needs and requirements depending on how long you wish to take the vehicle out on contract for, how much mileage you do per annum and whether you wish to put down a deposit or not. When it comes to returning your vehicle at the end of the leasing period, the vehicle will be collected by the finance company, inspected and payments will stop. Allowing you to then find another great lease deal to replace that vehicle!
That is correct, all the vehicles we supply are brand new. Often, we may be able to supply ‘Pre-registered’ vehicles where in order to meet the terms of that specific cheap pricing, they would’ve been registered at an earlier date. These vehicles are still brand new though, simply registered before the day of delivery.
Vehicle leasing is an ever-growing sector of the car industry and there is no better time to start than right now! Benefits of leasing include:
• Being able to keep driving a brand new vehicle every few years (once your contract has finished) allowing you to always be up to date with the latest makes, models and technology that manufacturers have to offer.
• Leasing new vehicles allow for you to not associate with expenses that are linked with older vehicles (High maintenance!).
• Leasing is often the best and cheapest way to go if you are after obtaining a brand new vehicle.
• Vehicle leasing allows for a broader choice of vehicles to be taken into consideration and often, customers find that they can lease a much better vehicle than what they first anticipated!
• Fixed costs on your monthly rentals include manufacturer warranty, road tax and RFL (Road Fund License) as standard! There is also an option to add a maintenance package to all of our vehicles should you wish. Having these fixed monthly instalments help for you to always understand exactly how much you will be spending.
• When leasing your brand new vehicle, you don’t have to worry about depreciation! New vehicles lose a massive amount of money on them over the first few years of ownership however, with Leasing, you don’t need to worry about this as the vehicle is never actually owned by you!
• When your contract is due to end, you don’t need to worry about selling as you simply just return the vehicle back to the finance company.
A lease agreement can be applied for by anyone 18 or over and you must hold a full UK driving license.
The proofs which are required to be supplied will depend upon your credit score, history and also what finance company is being used. Most will require a proof of address, proof of income and a proof of identity in the form of your passport or driving license.
That is correct, these two are the same where a long-term lease agreement (usually 2-4 years) is arranged with the customer for a vehicle of your choice.
This is then followed by the initial rental (1st months payment) and then your subsequent monthly rentals. At the end of the contract, your vehicle is then returned to the finance company.
We have access to all major manufacturers and models of vehicles. If you are unable to find the vehicle you are after on our website, please contact us on our phone number 03333 70 2121 or alternatively, you can request a manual tailored quotation by clicking here.
Usually, stock vehicles are deliverable within 2-3 weeks depending on how quickly actions are taken from all parties involved. However, stock vehicles are sometimes "pipeline" meaning they may be longer. So it is best to allow us to check individually on your chosen option.
If a vehicle is required to be ordered to specifically fit your needs and there aren’t any vehicles readily available, we would need to look into placing a factory order. These lead times can differ from 8-16 weeks depending on the manufacturer and vehicle etc.
Of course, it is possible for a cherished number plate to be placed onto your lease vehicle however, you would need permission from the finance company as they essentially own your vehicle. Upon receiving their permission, they will then be able to guide you through their process of how to go about this.
This would often need to be done after taking delivery as you will be required to liaise directly with the finance company.
During the contract, you are responsible for keeping the car in good condition, all routine servicing, maintenance and MOT’s (if necessary). You will need to ensure that you stick to your annual mileage allowances and ensure that any damage is rectified that doesn’t fall under the fair wear and tear guidelines.
With a lease contract, there is no option to purchase the vehicle at the end. The vehicle must be returned to the finance company. You can request to purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease but this will be at the finance companies discretion, at the time. At the start of the contract, the agreement is that you do not own the vehicle.
This is simply the way in which the payment plan would be structured if you went for that contract profile. These profiles are always catered to your needs whether you wish to put down a deposit or no deposit at all and are broken down into initial payments of 1, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months up front.
For example, if we look at the profile of 3+47, this would be a one off initial rental payment equivalent to 3 monthly rentals at the beginning of your contract followed by 47 monthly rentals.
The higher the up-front payment (initial rental), the lower your subsequent monthly rentals will be. The total cost of the contract will always be the same whether you put no deposit down or a deposit to lower your monthly rentals.
For an additional monthly cost on top of the monthly rental, a maintenance package can be applied to any of our vehicles which we offer. The maintenance package allows for all servicing costs to be covered along with MOT’s too (if necessary). Other things covered under the maintenance package includes replacement or repair on tyres, bulbs, wipers etc.
Benefits of having a maintenance package
Maintenance packages allow for the peace of mind on your new lease vehicle knowing that all servicing and required maintenance is covered and tied up within your monthly rentals.
Advantages to this include:
• Manufacturer servicing with authorised garages
• Electrical & mechanical repairs or replacements which also includes labour
• Lower vehicle running costs
• All parts required to repair/replace under fair wear & tear are included. This means things such as brake pads, batteries, wipers etc.
• Easy booking process
To undergo any maintenance on your lease vehicle, this is to be done at any of the approved garages for that manufacturer within the UK, which are also to be approved by the finance company who own the leased vehicle.
You can, however, maintain the vehicle yourself which means all costs will be your responsibility.
In order to lease a vehicle, a credit check is required to be put in place so that the finance company can ensure that you are eligible to afford the monthly payments across the course of the contract.
Our finance application process is quick and easy and shouldn’t take too long to complete. We then will put your finance application through to the finance company who is offering the best pricing on the specific deal we have quoted you on.
Most finance companies which we use are after a good to excellent credit rating however, some are more lenient than others.
Many finance companies aim to have a decision back within 1-2 days depending on certain factors and if they require further information from you. As soon as we receive communication from them, we pass this straight across to you.
You aren’t required to be employed in order to take out a lease agreement but you must have some sort of steady income such as a pension or benefit allowance in order to show the finance company that you can afford the monthly rentals.
All of our deals are by various finance companies, whoever is offering the cheapest pricing for that certain deal.
Within some finance documents, it will specify exactly when payments will be taken. However, some finance companies take the initial payments on or before delivery, some around 7-10 days after delivery. And then your remaining monthly rentals will begin around 1 month after you have taken delivery.
This will differ depending on which finance company your vehicle is funded by and sometimes initial rentals may be required before taking delivery.
Your leasing contract will include the following as standard:
• Road tax for the full duration
• Full Manufacturers warranty
• Breakdown cover
Your leasing contract will not include:
• Servicing & maintenance (Unless you have opted for the additional maintenance package to be added)
