When you lease a car or van from Flexed, there are two options available for customers to choose from – Personal Leasing or Business Leasing.
The process is pretty much the same for both personal and business customers wanting to open an account with us; the appropriate form will have to be filled in, a credit history check carried out and a decision made based on the information and documentation provided, which of course will differ depending on whether you’ve opted for Personal Leasing or Business Leasing.
Choosing The Right Vehicle
We have a huge choice of cars and vans available to lease at Flexed from small city cars, to medium hatchbacks, estate cars, pick ups, saloons, SUVs, small or large vans and convertibles. Choosing the right one to represent your business is probably the easiest and most enjoyable part of the leasing process and here at Flexed, our team will provide you with all the help you need to ensure the right vehicle and contract based on your requirements is tailored for you and your business.
Once you’ve decided on which car or van to lease for your business, we ask you to carefully consider how many miles you’re going to cover annually so that an appropriate mileage allowance can be chosen – please note, exceeding your agreed mileage allowance could lead to charges at the end of your lease contract based on a small fixed fee for every mile over.
Something else to bear in mind, choosing a mileage allowance for example of 15,000 miles per annum when you actually only cover 10,000 miles or less, means you could end up paying more for your lease vehicle every month than is needed.
Our short term lease contracts give businesses the flexibility to be able to lease a car or van for a minimum of 28 days and after which, the vehicle can be returned, leased for longer or swapped for another make or model and there’s no additional charges to pay.
We also offer long term rentals at Flexed from 3 months, 6, 9 or 12 months, however this is only available on select vehicles but could be of interest to Business Leasing customers – call 0800 311 8290 to find out more.
All of our vehicles are less than 12 months old, with 85% being less than 6 months old. We change our fleet of cars and vans every six months to ensure that both Personal and Business Leasing customers always have the latest models to choose from.
Your Business and The Application Process
Our Business Application form asks for you to provide information such as company name, address, contact details, fleet details, director/partner details, invoicing details and bank details. Further information and documentation may be required if your business is less than three years old, such as 3 months’ business bank statements and a guarantee from a company director.
We accept Self-Employed, Sole Traders, Limited Companies and Partnerships with our Business Leasing contracts and depending on your business history, the information/documentation provided and the result of your credit history check, a decision will be made on your eligibility to lease.
Once your Business Application has been approved, an account will be opened for you and your leasing journey can begin with Flexed.
It might be that you’ve got new employees on a probationary period but need to get them on the road as quickly as possible, or a fleet of vans is urgently required to carry bulky items associated with your business – whatever the reason, our flexible short term leasing contracts mean you can simply lease for a minimum period of 28 days on a rolling contract, enabling YOU to choose how long you want to lease for.
At Flexed, our short term leasing contracts enable you to remain in full control without having to commit to anything long term – you might lease a car or van for 6 months and decide later that you only need the vehicle for 3 months and with short term leasing, you can simply change the lease length, as you’re not committed to leasing for anything further than the minimum 28 days.
Businesses registered for VAT can also claim back 50% of the VAT costs once their contract ends. If your lease vehicle is used purely for business purposes only, then 100% of the VAT can be reclaimed and to keep running costs down even more for your company, vehicle maintenance is also included as part of your lease contract with Flexed.
