How To Deal With Delays When You’ve Bought A New Car

Waiting for a new car that you’ve bought recently?

Chances are, you’re facing a bit of a lengthy delay right now, and if you’re without reliable transport for one reason or another then that delay is likely to be wreaking havoc with your day-to-day life!

But there’s a solution.

Dealing with delays when buying a new car is a lot easier than you might think. You don’t have to be without a car, you don’t have to be reliant on public transport, and you don’t have to settle for something you’ve found on eBay that might end up costing you five times what you paid for the car itself in potential trips to visit a mechanic…

When it comes to filling the gap between now and finally being able to collect or take delivery of your new purchase, a flexible short-term lease is the perfect solution.

Doesn’t leasing a car involve long-term commitments?

Not with a short-term contract like the ones we offer here at Flexed! Short-term lease contracts tend to give you a much greater degree of flexibility when it comes to getting your hands on a vehicle, and that flexibility and lack of long-term obligations is what makes these kinds of contracts such a good solution.

What is a short-term lease and how long does it last?

Essentially, a short-term lease lets you get into the driver’s seat of a high-quality new car for a shorter period of time than a conventional lease contract. As we mentioned above, you don’t have to worry about long-term commitments and obligations, these types of contracts are built around you and your needs, particularly when it comes to contract length.

With regards to how short the nature of short-term actually is, it depends entirely on you. Here at Flexed, we offer lease deals that range anywhere from 28 days all the way up to 12 months. We work with our customers and clients to determine how long they need a vehicle for and which vehicle they’re looking to drive, and we start to create a flexible contract from there.

Can you really lease a vehicle for just 28 days?

Of course! Leasing for 28 days/1 month is simple (and entirely possible). It’s also one of the most flexible ways to lease a vehicle.

We offer 28-day rolling contracts and flexible 1-month leases here at Flexed, which not only gives you the flexibility to change your vehicle or return it after that initial 28 days, but you also have the benefit of being able to add on additional time with ease if your situation changes or you simply need the car a little longer than expected. Particularly in the case of delays when purchasing a new car, this is extremely handy, as there are often knock-backs or certain situations that can sometimes occur which can extend those delays a little more.

What’s included with a 28-day lease?

As well as their flexibility, our 28-day rolling leases boast a whole bunch of benefits, with one of the main ones being the fact that it’s practically a complete package that allows you to get out on the road with ease. In the case of getting a vehicle to provide transport until your new car is ready, this makes a short-term lease incredibly convenient!

Our 28-day rolling lease contracts include as standard:

You also have the added benefit of being able to add insurance to your lease for its duration as an optional extra. That means there’s no running around to find the best deal on a car that you’re only using on a temporary basis – we do all of the hard work for you. Plus, you choose a mileage allowance that suits your needs, and like we mentioned previously – the duration is entirely down to you, and you can extend it at any time if you need the car a little longer.

What are the other benefits of a short-term lease?

Aside from getting you the transport you need whilst you wait for your new car to be ready, short-term leases give drivers like yourself a wealth of benefits both on and off the road.

For one, you get access to a huge variety of top-quality new vehicles that all come with that new car smell… There’s nothing quite like it! We have a diverse range here at Flexed, and if we have a vehicle in stock, we can get it to you within 24 hours of your contract being signed and accepted. You can either collect your car from us, or we can deliver it to you anywhere across the UK (delivery charges apply).

We’ve already talked about the amazing flexibility and lack of long-term commitments with a short-term lease, but you can also budget a lease with ease (particularly if you include insurance in your contract). Everything comes together in one affordable monthly payment. All you have to worry about is fuel (and insurance if you choose to sort that yourself). It’s easy and convenient!

How do you apply for a short-term lease?

Our process is simple:

  1. Simply choose your preferred van or car online with your chosen mileage allowance and how long you’d like to lease the vehicle for.
  2. Submit an application by completing our straightforward one-page electronic form online. We’ll ask for details about you which we’ll then send over to our in-house credit team for approval.
  3. Once you’re approved, all that’s left to do is simply make your first payment by card to order and hold your vehicle, and we’ll send out your new contract ready for your signature!

Once your contract is signed and returned, we can sort out getting your car to you. Like we said above, you can either collect your vehicle directly from us, or we can deliver it to a location of your choosing anywhere across the UK for a small delivery charge.
