Short term vehicle hire from 1 day through to 28 days throughout the UK. There is a wide choice of vehicle available from small cars through to family vehicles, estates, automatics and executive vehicles. These can be picked up from a wide variety of locations. Hirers will need to be over 25 years of age with a clean driving license that has been held for more than two years (some endorsements are allowed – please contact us for further detail). Payment is made by credit or debit card with a small deposit required at time of collection.
Short term lease is generally from 5 months through to 12 months. This is ideal for a wide variety of reasons including pre contract vehicles, job probation period vehicles, customers who do not want to commit to a three year lease. These vehicle come from a wide range of suppliers and vehicles options change all the time. We can normally get these delivered out within 10-14 days from the time of a signed order.
The vehicle of your choice is leased on an annual mileage allowance, which is calculated upon the estimated mileage that you expect the vehicle to cover over the course of a year. The annual mileage is used by the finance company to estimate the depreciation of the vehicle at the end of the lease period and therefore ultimately is used to calculate the monthly payments you pay. Lease or Hire negotiate with the finance company to get you the best deal available using multiple sources of funding and encouraging competition amongst providers for your business.
If you are happy with the proposal an initial payment is required, usually 3 monthly payments in advance followed by fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract, for example, 23 months on a two year contract. During the term of the agreement the vehicle is yours to use however ownership of the vehicle remains with the finance company removing any depreciation risk to you. At the end of the contract you simply hand the vehicle back and lease another vehicle or walk away.
