A. Insurance is not included, because every customer is different; ie age, area etc, therefore it is difficult to cost insurance in with the lease price. All lease vehicles must be insured fully comprehensively.
A. Vehicle leasing deals are usually taken over a 2 or 3 year term. Deals are advertised as 3+23 or 3+35 contracts. The ‘3’ stands for 3 rental payments in advance (known as initial rental payment), then +23 or +35 equates to the quantity of payments you will pay throughout the contract term. You will also see deals advertised for comparison on different payments profiles, for example 6+23 and 6+35; this allows our customers to see other options available. Some customers prefer to pay a higher payment at the front of the lease, which in turn reduces the monthly rental amount for the balance of the contract.
A. Most initial rental payments are collected by the finance company within 10 days of vehicle delivery. In a very small number of cases, the supplying dealer will request this payment on behalf of the finance company prior to delivery and where this is the case you will be notified well in advance.
A. A MOT is required on any vehicle after a three year period from first registration.
A. On both ‘business contract hire’ and ‘personal contract hire’ the finance company are the legal owner and keeper of the vehicle on the V5 document. This must be disclosed to your insurance company from the outset. If you require further clarity on this question, please call one of our team and they will be happy to explain in more detail.
A. No. When the contract expires you simply return the vehicle to the finance company and take up a new lease vehicle, should you choose. (We will contact you prior to the end of your contract to help search for your new vehicle).
A. Every lease vehicle contract gives an ‘excess mileage’ price, therefore should you exceed your agreed total mileage, any additional mileage would be charged at this rate. EG: Excess pence per mileage rate = 8p. 1000 miles over the total contract mileage would be charged at £80.00 +VAT = £96.00. The finance company will invoice you after your lease vehicle is returned.
A. 99% of leasing offers are on brand new vehicles, however some finance companies will process leasing contracts on vehicles up to 12 months old. All of the leasing deals on our website are either brand new or pre-registered (delivery mileage only) UK vehicles, supplied via UK main dealerships.
A. Road fund licence is included for the full contract duration on 99% of deals. Please check the details associated with your deal of interest to ensure this is the case.
A. All lease vehicles come with the standard warranty supplied by the vehicle manufacturer.
A. You can opt to include what is called a ‘maintenance package’ in with the price of your lease. This generally covers you for your annual vehicle service, tyres and any wear and tear items which need replacing (excluding damage). Please check the full content of the package with the provider, as some maintenance packages have varying levels of cover.
A. We will charge a non-refundable processing fee once you have placed your order. Please check your quotation paperwork and ask your contact if you are unsure.
A. The majority of lease vehicles include delivery to a UK mainland address which can be your home or workplace. The vehicle will usually be driven to your delivery address and the mileage incurred may be included as your usage.
