about leasing

Business Leasing or Contract Hire is a rental agreement with a fixed cost.

You choose the manufacturers and models of vehicles that you want and agree the terms of the agreement, such as the maximum annual mileage and length of agreement and initial rental amount followed by fixed monthly rentals to suit your budget. You can include our optional maintenance and breakdown cover, so we manage and maintain the vehicles. The cost would be included in your monthly rental amount, meaning you can pay one fixed monthly payment.
