Leasing is a cost-effective and hassle-free way to drive a brand new vehicle whilst benefiting from fixed monthly payments, manufacturer’s warranty, road tax and free delivery. We supply all makes and models of new vehicles from a national network of franchised main dealers. You don’t even have to collect your vehicle as delivery is free of charge. There is even the option to add maintenance which covers your cost of servicing and replacements tyres.
CAN ANYONE LEASE A CAR?
One of the great things about leasing is that almost anyone can do it. If you hold a full UK Drivers’ License you can enquire on any leasing contract. It is however worth remembering that you will need to be put through external credit approval with one of our affiliated finance companies to make sure you will be able to fund your monthly payments. Rest assured this is a quick and easy process.
IS LEASING RIGHT FOR ME?
If you would like an affordable way to drive a new vehicle every 2 or 3 years, avoiding MOTs and unforeseen bills, leasing may will be the best option for you. This means you benefit from the latest models, technology, safety features and fuel efficient engines, with no residual risk and no hassle of having to dispose of your old vehicle. Simply hand the car back at the end of the contract and take out a new one.
With over 18 years experience we’re able to make the process of driving a new vehicle as simple and hassle-free as possible. Over the years we have been able to forge strong, lasting relationships with the largest dealer groups, manufacturers and vehicle finance companies, enabling us to secure the best discount terms. We focus on building long term customer relationships, ensuring that repeat customers and recommendations form a substantial part of our business.
Do I need to complete an MOT for my lease car?
A MOT is only required on any car after a three year period or once the vehicle is 3 years old. Therefore, unless your lease term exceeds a three year period, you will not need to obtain an MOT certificate.
Is car insurance included in the leasing price?
Insurance is not included. Every customer is different; ie age, area etc, therefore it is impossible to cost insurance in with the leasing costs. All lease cars must be insured comprehensively.
Can you explain 3+23 for a 2 year contract or 3+35 on a 3 year car leasing agreement?
Car leasing deals are usually calculated over a 2 or 3 year term. Deals are sometimes advertised as 3+23 or 3+35 contracts. The ‘3’ stands for 3 payments in advance, then +23 or +35 equates to the quantity of payments you will pay throughout the contract term. You will also offers shown 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.
Who owns the car?
On both ‘business contract hire’ and ‘personal contract hire’ the finance company are the legal owner of the car on the V5 document. The finance company the lease is taken out with, will record the customer/business as the keeper of the vehicle on their internal records for the lease term. If you require further clarity on this question, please call one of our team and they will be happy to explain in more detail.
What happens if I exceed the annual mileage on the lease contract?
Every lease car contract gives an ‘excess mileage’ price, therefore should you exceed your agreed total contracted mileage, any additional mileage would be charged at this rate. EG: Excess pence per mileage rate = 5p. 1000 miles over the total contract mileage would be charged at £50.00 + vat = £60.00. The finance company will invoice you after your lease car is returned.
Are all lease cars brand new with no previous owners?
99% of car leasing offers are calculated on brand new cars. All of the car leasing deals on our website are brand new UK vehicles, supplied via UK main dealerships, unless stated otherwise.
Is Road Tax included in the car leasing price?

Are lease cars covered by any form of warranty?

What is maintenance?
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 car service and any wear and tear items which need replacing (excluding damage). Please check the full content of the package as some maintenance packages may exclude tyres and/or exhausts.
Are there any administration fees?
