Leasing is not for everyone, experiences or rumours you may have heard include:
·“It’s expensive”….It is the most efficient from a cash flow perspective and the easiest to budget for and in the case of many vehicles the least expensive.
·“The mileage charges are terrible” ….Only if you go over mileage and don’t tell anyone until the end of the contract. We can alter you contract as soon as you realise that the needs of a particular vehicle have changed.
·“The damage charges are awful” ….On the return of a vehicle as long as the vehicle has been serviced to manufacturer standards and has had fair wear and tear based on the mileage and in accordance to BVRLA (British Vehicle Rental Leasing Association) guidelines which we can advise you before you start a lease there should not be a need to worry.
·“Its really inflexible” ….We can change your mileage, change your term, change the vehicle whenever you want.
·“You can’t change early” ….We can give you early settlement quotations whenever you request and even include it into a new vehicle.
·“I can never speak to someone who actually knows what I am talking about” ….The team I work with are easily contactable and experts in their field as well as having knowledge across the business as a whole. Also we do not have any hold music or option 1 – 9 on an automated service.
·“I never own it” ….No you don’t. Also you don’t own something that depreciates monthly either. If you do want purchase a particular vehicle at the end of contract we can get a price to give you a choice.
So in short what we are best at is full maintenance leasing where we cover the cost of all servicing, maintenance, tyres, brake pads, light bulbs and anything else that you usually have to pay for, to give you more chance to get on with running your business whilst we manage your vehicles.
