5 good reasons why you should lease a car rather than buy

In the UK, more and more motorists are turning their back on purchasing outright and instead choosing to lease a car, simply because leasing gives you the freedom to revel in the latest and greatest cars on the market today without having to deal with depreciation or selling the car on.

With short term leasing, you can rent or lease a car for 28 days or more, without being tied into a long term contract.

All of our cars are brand new, come with a full manufacturer’s warranty, breakdown assistance, UK road tax, vehicle maintenance, plus delivery and collection is free.

Whether you opt to lease for personal use or through your business, here at Flexed we provide short term car leasing from anywhere between 28 days and 12 months.

So why is leasing becoming a more popular choice in the UK amongst motorists? Here’s 5 very good reasons why you should be leasing a car instead of purchasing one outright and why leasing is now the preferred option:


With a short term lease you have the option to drive one type of car for a period of time and without any hassle change over to another one that catches your eye without having to worry about what you do with the old one. You’re not tied into a long term commitment, so the flexibility this gives you makes short term leasing a fantastic way of being able to drive around in a brand new car.

More car for your money

When you choose to lease rather than buy, you may find that your budget allows you to drive a car that you otherwise couldn’t afford. This is mainly because the upfront costs when leasing are generally lower than if you was to buy a car outright, with just a small initial rental/deposit to pay at the start, followed by fixed monthly payments tailored to suit your needs.

Brand new cars with warranty

All cars available to lease at Flexed come with a full manufacturer’s warranty (variable depending on the make and model). Maintenance is also included as part of your monthly payments, giving you peace of mind and the freedom to enjoy your lease car without having to worry about extra costs associated with things going wrong. Also included in the monthly price you pay is breakdown cover, so in the event of an issue with your lease car, there’s help on hand.

No depreciation to worry about

This is one of the biggest issues when you purchase a car outright, because as soon as you leave the showroom in your brand new sparkly car it’s value drops and continues to do so. Of course, depreciation affects all cars differently, depending on what make and model you buy but generally every one loses a signifiant amount of its value in only a short period of time. However, leasing rather than buying enables you to drive a brand new car without having to worry about depreciation or having to sell it on when the time comes.

Help boost your credit rating

When you lease a car you continue to make monthly payments for the duration of your lease term and this could help boost your credit rating, so in the future it could make it easier to get credit such as a bank loan or just a simple credit card. Keeping up with your monthly payments shows you can manage money and are less of a risk.
