Van Contract Hire / Lease FAQ’s

HOW MUCH WILL MY LEASED VAN COST?

The amount of your rental cost will depend on a number of factors, including the value of the van, the annual mileage you are allowed to do under the terms and conditions, and the length of your contract. One final thing that can affect how much van rental you pay is whether you want to include a maintenance package or not. This will cover things such as tyres, services, MOTs etc.  

DO I OWN THE VAN AT THE END OF THE LEASE?

Van contract hire is when you pay a fixed monthly rate on the van or vans of your choice. You don’t actually own the vehicle, and at the end of your agreed rental period, you can simply hand the vehicle back if you don’t want to purchase it outright. 

WHAT VAN CONTRACT HIRE TERMS DO YOU OFFER?

We offer finance on our entire range of vans, both brand-new and used. We have finance terms for as little as one year and as long as five years, so you can choose the term that suits your unique circumstances the best. If you aren’t sure what sort of package you could get for your budget, speak to one of our expert team who’ll be happy to advise you. 

WHAT IS VAN LEASING?

Leasing, also known as ‘contract hire’, offers a cost-effective solution for driving a new commercial vehicle. With leasing, there’s no hefty upfront cost. Instead, you enjoy fixed monthly payments covering the vehicle, road tax, breakdown assistance, and depreciation concerns. Plus, there are potential tax benefits. At the end of the lease, upgrading is hassle-free.

Van leasing simplified:

  • Select your desired van or pick-up.
  • Choose your contract length.
  • Set your initial payment size.
  • Agree on your fixed monthly lease fee.
  • Enjoy delivery anywhere in the UK.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VAN LEASING

There are numerous benefits that make van leasing a popular choice for businesses and sole traders in the UK, including:

  • Drive a Brand New Van: Upgrade to a modern vehicle with advanced technology and fuel efficiency.
  • All Leading Van Models: Choose from a variety of leading manufacturers to get the exact specifications you need.
  • Low Upfront Lease Payments: Improve cash flow with lower initial capital outlay compared to buying outright.
  • Protect Your Savings: Keep profits in the bank with affordable, fixed monthly lease fees.
  • No Van Depreciation Risk: Avoid the expense of van depreciation that comes with ownership.
  • Fixed Monthly Van Lease Fees: Enjoy predictable monthly costs throughout the lease term.
  • No Big Repair Bills: Minimise downtime and costly repairs with a reliable leased van.
  • Road Tax Paid: Vehicle excise duty (VED) covered for the duration of the lease, along with manufacturer’s warranty and breakdown cover.
  • Full Maintenance and Servicing Options: Opt for a maintenance package covering servicing, tire replacements, and routine maintenance.
  • No Vehicle Disposal Hassle: Simply return the van at the end of the contract, eliminating the stress of selling.
  • Different Van Body Types: Explore various van options, including panel vans, pick-ups, tippers, dropsides, Lutons, and box vans.
  • Make the Right Impression: Present a professional image to customers with a clean, modern van, potentially leading to repeat business.

WHO CAN LEASE A VAN?

Van leasing suits businesses of all sizes and individuals seeking practical vehicles for leisure. Business lease applicants must demonstrate trading status, income, and pass a credit check. They may need to provide business bank statements, VAT returns, and financial accounts. Personal lease applicants, who may not meet business lease criteria, must be 18 or older, hold a UK driving license, provide 3 years of address and employment/education history, have a steady income, be on the electoral register, and have no bankruptcies or CCJs. They also undergo a credit check.

IS A VAN LEASE RIGHT FOR ME

Looking for a new, clean, reliable, and efficient van? Leasing is the answer. Experience the latest van technology, including fuel-saving powertrains and safety systems. With manufacturer warranty and breakdown cover, enjoy peace of mind. Plus, lease allows for easy van swaps every two or three years.

HOW DOES VAN LEASING WORK?

Van leasing is a simple process:

  • Choose your desired make and model of van.
  • Select the contract length and estimate your annual mileage.
  • Decide on the initial payment amount, typically required by most lease companies.
  • Compare available van lease deals.
  • Apply for the lease, undergo a credit check, and await approval.
  • Upon approval, the van will be delivered to your address or made available for pickup.
  • Make monthly payments to the lease company.
  • At the end of the lease term, return the van with no additional payments, barring any excessive damage beyond normal wear and tear.

 

 

WHAT TYPES OF VAN CAN YOU LEASE?

Discover a variety of van types available for lease:

  • Small vans: Ideal for small businesses such as tradespeople, dog walkers, and florists. These vans are fuel-efficient and fall into lower insurance groups, reducing insurance costs.
  • Medium vans: Featuring side-loading capabilities, these vans offer ample space for tools, goods, or equipment transportation while still fitting into standard parking spaces. They typically accommodate two passengers and one driver.
  • Large vans: Perfect for transporting large or heavy items, offering ease in goods and cargo transportation, although they may require some practice due to their size.
  • Pickups: Combining car comfort with the ability to transport up to a tonne of cargo, pickups offer versatility for various transportation needs.
  • Dropside tippers: Designed with sides that drop down for easy access during manual or forklift loading, making them suitable for professions like landscaping and scaffolding.
  • Electric and hybrid vans: Offering eco-friendly options with ranges of over 200 miles on a single charge, catering to environmentally conscious businesses.

CAN I LEASE A VAN FOR BUSINESS USE?

Yes, leasing a van for business use follows a similar process to personal leasing. You select the vehicle or fleet, make monthly payments throughout the contract duration, and the lease company will typically assess your ability to meet these payments.

 

IS VAN LEASING A GOOD IDEA?

Leasing a work van is often a smart choice for several reasons. Firstly, it typically offers greater affordability compared to outright purchasing. With leasing, you make smaller monthly payments, covering only the van’s usage, rather than the entire purchase price upfront. This can significantly ease financial strain and provide more flexibility for your business expenses.

CAN I LEASE A VAN IF I'M SELF-EMPLOYED

Of course, being self-employed doesn’t hinder your ability to lease a van; you can still access van finance options.
