Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why should I lease a van?
Leasing means you can drive a brand new van every 2 to 5 years, plus you enjoy fixed price motoring as costs won't change during the period of the lease. You also don't need to worry about depreciation or selling the van in the future.
Q: What are the requirements needed to qualify?
If you are applying for a lease for your business then you will need to have at least one UK-based director or proprietor.
Q: How long are the leases?
The length of a lease varies to suit your needs and ranges from 2 years to 5 years.
Q: Is there warranty on a leased vehicle?
All vehicles come with a full UK manufacturer's warranty.
Q: Are maintenance costs included?
A maintenance contract is optional and covers all routine servicing and repairs due to wear and tear. We tend to recommend maintenance contracts on business leases where the driver is likely to exceed 10,000 miles per annum.

For business users it's a minimum of one month's rental. You can make a larger initial payment which will reduce your monthly payments.

Delivery is free on all vehicles anywhere in the UK and we will deliver right to your door or business depending on your preference.
Q: Can I increase my mileage allowance?
Your mileage allowance is agreed from the outset but it can be amended if there is a change to your circumstances. This will usually mean altering the monthly payments.
Q: What happens if I exceed the agreed mileage?
If you exceed your mileage allowance then you will receive an "Excess Mileage Charge" for each mile that you go over the amount stated in your contract.
Q: Where do I go if the vehicle needs a service or repair?
We recommend you use your local main dealer for your make of car, or take the vehicle to any reputable garage.
Q: Is roadside assistance included?
In the event of a breakdown you are in safe hands as all vehicles are supplied with roadside assistance.
Q: Am I able to terminate the lease early?
Ending a lease early is possible but in doing so you may have to pay an Early Termination Fee.
Q: What happens at the end the lease?
There are various options and these depend on the type of contract, but you can usually ask to extend or hand the vehicle back and start a new lease. When you return your vehicle, it will be assessed for "fair wear and tear". This means an acceptable amount of deterioration based on normal usage. Any damage needing repair will incur a charge.
Q: Can I buy the vehicle at the end of the contract?
You may be able to purchase the vehicle from the finance company at the end of the agreement depending on what contract you are on. The price will be based on the estimated residual value of the vehicle.
