If you or your business normally buys its cars with cash, a bank loan, or through a traditional Hire Purchase scheme, then you may find Business Contract Hire a far more cost-effective option.

Not only does Contract Hire allow you to run a new vehicle for an inclusive monthly rental, but it also releases valuable capital from your current vehicle or your next potential purchase. Contract Hire means you can afford an even better vehicle than you initially thought.

Contract Hire can offer a package to include routine servicing and maintenance costs for a small increase in the monthly rentals. All scheduled maintenance work will be carried out by the main dealer network and at a local dealer of your choice. Maintenance packages include replacement tyres (excluding punctures), batteries, exhausts and all parts that are subject to fair wear and tear**.

At the end of your agreement we will arrange to collect your vehicle free of charge from your office address. Not only does this avoiding time-consuming disposal issues and any worries over depreciation of the vehicle* but allows you to make the best use of your valuable time. Annual Road Fund Licence is included in the monthly rental for the duration of the contract.
