A Simple Guide from FLEXED on How Short Term Leasing Works
What is short term leasing?
At Flexed, we specialise in flexible short term leases that both Business and Personal customers can take advantage of. So, if you’re interested in leasing your next car but don’t wish to be tied into any kind of long term agreement, we are your best solution.
Our short term lease contracts allow you the customer to stay in full control over how long you lease a vehicle for, only having to commit to a minimum 28 day lease and after which you get to decide whether to continue leasing for longer, swap to another model or make or simply return the vehicle without obligation.
Our minimum lease period is 28 days but you can ‘roll on’ for up to 12 months or longer – it’s entirely up to you what happens next and when.
If, for example, you lease a car for 6 months but after 2 months you decide the vehicle is no longer required, with short term leasing you can simply change the length of your lease at any time, or if after 2 months you find yourself unhappy with the car you’ve chosen to drive, you can swap to another model or make with no additional charges to pay.
You can swap vehicles as many times as you like with a short term lease contract, so if you’re someone who struggles to make their mind up, short term leasing is the ideal solution.
How much per month it costs you to lease the car of your choice depends on a number of factors including what type of vehicle you decide to lease, how long for and the mileage allowance chosen. What we do guarantee, is that the price quoted is what you’ll pay every month, with no hidden fees or extra charges waiting to surprise you.
What’s Included On A 28 Day Short Term Lease?
On a 28 day short term lease, the price includes UK road tax, manufacturer warranty, breakdown cover, vehicle maintenance and 1,250 miles a month (additional mileages available). All of our lease cars are new under 12 months old, with 85% being less than 6 months old but DO NOT come with insurance cover – the lessee must ensure their lease vehicle is insured and with vehicle leasing, a fully comprehensive insurance policy must be taken out.
Please be aware, exceeding your agreed mileage allowance could result in excess mileage charges at the end of your lease.
When Short Term Leasing Works
If you’ve ordered a new vehicle but need something to ‘fill the gap’ whilst awaiting delivery or you simply need to lease a car for a couple of months whilst deciding on a permanent solution, short term leasing is the perfect choice.
You might simply enjoy driving and testing out some of the latest models without having to commit to anything long term, knowing that you can swap and change as many times as you like without having to pay any additional charges or it could be that your company has taken on new members of staff on a probationary period but need them to be out on the road as quickly as possible without any fuss.
Basically, short term car and van leasing avoids long term tie-ins often associated with renting a vehicle.
However, we also offer long term rentals from 3 months, 6 or even 12 months on a number of select vehicles – call 0800 311 8290 to find out more.
What are the benefits?
Whilst our short term lease contracts work in a similar way to your more ‘general’ type of lease agreement, with short term leasing you don’t need to sign up for 2 to 3 years or more.
The same as a ‘normal’ lease contract, you choose the car, van or pickup from our website that you want to drive and pay a monthly amount for the privilege. However, once your initial 28 days is up, you have the freedom to either return the vehicle without obligation, ‘roll on’ for longer, or swap to a different model or make.
How Do I Get Started?
Once you’ve decided which car, van or pickup you’d like to lease, we ask new customers to fill out one of our application forms and be credit checked to ensure eligibility for vehicle finance.
Each application, whether it’s a Business or Personal one, is dealt with by our own in-house finance department, so a decision is made within 24 hours (weekdays), therefore, you could be driving away or taking delivery of your new lease vehicle within a matter of days.
All that’s left for you to cover is the insurance (must be a fully comprehensive insurance policy) and fuel, then you’re ready to go!
