A big thank-you to one of main VW suppliers, Johnsons Fleet, for visiting the CarLease UK team with their new demo – the VW T-Roc (a small SUV option).
As a credit broker, not a lender, we do not supply the cars directly from our premises in Greater Manchester. We work alongside a select number of franchised dealerships who supply the vehicles for us; they will actually organise the delivery directly to our customers home or business address. As such we work very closely with our suppliers to ensure that our customers receive the highest possible service, in-keeping with the approach of CarLease UK.
Some customers do get nervous about leasing a car online; the knowledge that we operate in conjunction with franchised dealers often provides comfort. Additionally, transactions do incur problems and difficulties; by working with trusted suppliers, we can be confident these are resolved quickly by our supplier partners.
As we have been exploring recently, knowing the finance product you are undertaking for your car arrangement is very important. As part of this, we have been discussing the following notion – is it better to buy or lease your vehicle? If you want to own a vehicle (or at least want the ability to own the vehicle) you need to ask your dealer or credit broker to supply you with an ownership based finance product.
This could include hire purchase or personal contract purchase. As already highlighted, there is no right or wrong way to conduct the transaction; it is about you getting something with meets your needs a requirements.
For customers looking at a purchase-style product, we tend to find these are customers who want to keep a vehicle for a long-period of time, usually 5-10 years. Where we ask customers to be careful is for those circumstances where they believe that a purchase-style product will “make them money” or that they will be able to exit the agreement, without at cost, whenever they wish. This is not a true reflection of what actually goes on and customers need to be mindful of exactly what will happen during the transaction. When we get asked about purchase style-products, we commonly offer our personal customers a PCP option – this operates like contract hire in that you make an initial payment/monthly payments with such amounts being based on a) mileage; b) term; c) vehicle required.
The crucial difference is that a PCP will offer a guaranteed future value (balloon) which enables the customer to purchase the vehicle at the end of the contract or, should they wish, hand the car back to the finance company.
