Leasing – everyone should be doing it but why?
You get to drive a better car or van than you ever thought you could afford and with short term leasing, you can drive the car of your choice for 28 days on a rolling contract which can be increased to 3, 6, 9 or 12 months with the option to change your lease car after the initial 28 days if you wish.
Short term leasing is the ideal service for both personal use and business customers who are looking to lease a car or van for the short term without having to be tied into a long term contract.
If you’re looking to lease a car for just a couple of months whilst you weigh up your options, then our short term leasing service is for you.
And for peace of mind, when you lease a car or van from Flexed you can take advantage of the fact that maintenance is included as part of your contract, as well as UK road tax, breakdown cover, full manufacturer warranty and 10,000 to 15,000 miles per annum (calculated on a pro-rata daily basis) – so what’s not to like about leasing?
Basically, you get to drive around in a brand new car or van of your choice (of which we have a wide range to choose from) for a monthly fixed fee. You can choose to extend the lease after your initial 28 days is up, or you can simply return the vehicle.
Our flexible service means you’re always in control – allowing you to lease a car or van short term for 28 days with the option to increase or decrease the length of your term at any time.
Whether you opt to lease for 28 days or 12 months, you’ll be responsible for ensuring that the monthly fixed rental payments are covered for the duration.
After 28 days, you can choose whether to return the car or van or if you would like to swap to another vehicle and you can do this as many times as you would like – with no additional charges to pay!
Before you can lease a car or van, personal information, some forms of documents such as proof of ID and a credit check will be required to assess whether you’re eligible for leasing.
This is part of the process for both personal and business contracts, however the type of documents and information required may differ.
You must be confident that you can afford to keep up with the monthly payments before you sign the agreement.
When you lease a car or van, there are restrictions that apply around what you can and can’t do with your vehicle. The main one is the agreed mileage which if you go over could mean extra charges at the end of your contract, whilst paying for more than you need is also not recommended.
You must also make sure that your lease car or van is kept in good condition whilst in your possession and inspected carefully before being returned.
The BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear guide explains what is and isn’t covered and should be used as a reference when checking for any damage.
At Flexed, we want out customers to treat their lease car or van as if it’s their own and we encourage this. However, when it comes to making modifications to your lease vehicle there is a process which must be followed.
It might be that you’d like to have a tow bar fitted, or your company decals added to your van by having it wrapped. Whatever the modification you have planned, you must seek permission first.
You may also need permission if you plan to take your lease car or van out of the country. A VE103 form might need filling in before heading off abroad.
