Thank you to our relationship manager, from Hitachi, for allowing us to photograph this beautiful machine – the VW Golf GTI!
As a lease car credit broker, not a lender, we work alongside a select number of finance companies who offer contract hire and leasing products to individuals and businesses in the UK.
When you review our website for your next lease deal & vehicle, you will be looking at prices from any number of major leasing companies including:
· Lex Autolease;
· VWFS; and
The benefit to the modern customer is that there is both choice and competitive pricing for any make and model of vehicle.
For a consumer, it is pragmatic to ask us, or your credit broker, which finance company is being utilised for the proposed arrangement. As the terms and conditions will differ for all major companies, there are different rules and nuances which exist between them. For example, some finance companies allow a 6 or 12 month formal extension at the end of the contract whereas as others demand the vehicle be returned or some will allow you to buy the vehicle at the end of the contract. There are no “standard practices” across the industry, so you do need to reflect on the finance company’s approach before committing to the deal, as you need to ensure this meets your needs and requirements. As contact hire is credit-based, whether you are an individual or business, you have to consider what requirements the finance company have – some will ask for 5 year address history whereas some will ask for a full income/expenditure analysis before approving you for credit.
