What ID Do I Need To Lease A Car Or Van?

Short term car & van leasing from FLEXED


The ID and information required when leasing a car or van varies depending on whether you’re looking for Personal Leasing or Business Leasing.

However, the application process works in pretty much the same way; you’ll be required to fill out an application form which should only take around 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

As we have our own in-house finance department, the whole process from start to finish is quick and easy. As part of the process, every new customer will be credit checked to make sure you’re eligible for finance and that leasing is the right option for you – this applies for both Personal Leasing and Business Leasing.

FLEXED - short term car & van leasing

FLEXED offer short term leases or long term rentals for both Personal and Business Leasing.

For customers applying for Personal Leasing, the application form asks you to fill in personal details about yourself including your name, marital status and number of dependents. You’ll also be required to provide a five year address history and a history of your work and income (a minimum 6 month history).

Your bank details and income/expenditure completes the form, all you need to do then is sign the form and include your email address. A decision will be made by our in-house team within 24 hours (weekdays).

If you’re applying for Business Leasing, the information required is based around your company and the directors/partners. Your company name, company number, registered address and date of establishment are some of the questions that appear on our Business Account application form.

You’ll also be required to include your contact details, trading address (if different from your registered address), fleet details, principal directors/partners details and your companies invoicing and bank details. After adding a signature to the application form, it will be sent to our in-house finance department who’ll make a decision based on the information and documentation provided.

Once your application has been approved, your new account with Flexed is opened and you’re ready to lease a car or fleet of cars through Personal or Business Leasing – which ever one is more relevant to you.

At Flexed, we don’t charge a standard deposit, however in some instances where a credit score during the application process falls into a ‘grey’ area, we might ask for a refundable security amount to help back up your application. This deposit will sit in your account and be refunded back to you at the end of your lease contract, unless you incur some outstanding charges during your lease term.

Our short term 28 day rolling contracts are the perfect solution for those of you looking for a low commitment type of lease, as most tend to want you to commit to a long term contract which can be tying.

Short term leasing is the ideal choice if you just need something to fill the gap while you make a decision on the best solution going forward, or you have staff members on a probationary period but need to get them on the road quickly and as easy as possible.

It might simply be that you fancy trying out the latest models, in which case our 28 day rolling contracts are ideal – once you’ve completed your 28 days, you’re free to return the vehicle, swap to another make and model or stick with the same one and there’s no additional charges to pay.

All cars available to lease with Flexed are less than 12 months old, with 85% of them being less than 6 months old. Our fleet of vehicles are changed roughly every 6 months to ensure we always have the latest models available for our customers to lease.

Included within our 28 day rolling contract is UK road tax, manufacturer warranty, breakdown cover, vehicle maintenance and 1,250 miles per month (with additional mileage available).

At Flexed, we also offer long term rentals on 3, 6 and 12 month leases, however this option is only available with select vehicles. With long term rentals, you agree to keep the vehicle for a minimum term – the benefits are the same as our 28 day rolling contracts, however the mileage per month is 833 but can be increased to suit your needs.
