What we do and how we do it
Essentially we're a van leasing broker; what that means to you is that we are independent and can make sure that the van you drive, and the leasing product you choose to finance it with, are the best for both you and your business.
Our aim is to help you get behind the wheel of a new van, in the most cost-effective and simple way possible, at the same time as giving you fantastic levels of customer service. You can read more about that here.
Hopefully, if we get that right, you'll not only came back to us, you'll tell friends and colleagues about us. You may already know which van you need, and what type of leasing product you would like to use to drive it. If that's the case, then what we'll be able to help you with is ensuring that the deal you choose is the best available.
There are three main lease products that you can use to finance your new van. They are:
- Van finance lease
- Van contract hire
- Van lease purchase
They are all different in terms of how they are set up, what they mean to you from a tax point of view, and how much flexibility they have. So they all have some differences. You can find out more about the financial part here.
They are, however, all the same in the sense that there are three main things that determine what you pay by way of monthly payment or rental.
The cost of the vehicle (s):
It goes without saying that the less you pay for the vehicle, the cheaper the payments or rental will be. Where you'll benefit from dealing with us is that we order significant volumes of all of the vehicles featured on our special offer page here. So, instead of getting the discount equivalent to one or two vehicles you will get the benefit of the discount appropriate for literally hundreds of vehicles.
The interest rate:
Just like when ordering the vehicles, the more finance volume we put through our funders, the cheaper the cost of money becomes. Just like discounts, this is reflected in the leasing prices quoted.
The residual value:
All of our funders will have an idea of what they think the vehicle will be worth at the end of the leasing contract you take out. Other than the mileage you do in the vehicle and how long you want to keep it for, they will take into account what the industry think it will be worth at the end of the leasing period via programmes like CAP or Glass's Guide.
They will also look at their own experience of that particular vehicle i.e. does a particular vehicle attract buyers from a certain sector that is higher risk? How many they have of that model on their books will also be taken into account - if they have too many they might decide to lower the predicted value, which would make the payments or rental higher and stem the flow of that particular model or if they feel they don't have enough of that particular model on their books they may do the opposite.
In all three of these cases our volume of over 2,500 vehicles a year means that not only do you get the best discount and the best interest rates but we can make sure that as we have relationships with all of the finance companies that operate in this sector, you will be quoted the best leasing rate for your new van, pick up truck, or even car.
Obviously the deposit you pay, as well as the term of the agreement, will also affect the monthly payments or rentals, but that's very much down to what you want to pay up front and how much you can afford/want to spend.
But even if you don't know already what van you want or how you want to pay for it, we will help you choose the best option that suits your circumstances and budget. We won't sell to you, we'll help get you behind the wheel, and you'll always get what's best for you, not what's best for us.
The bottom line is that you will get the best deal possible, whatever van you need. We'll make the whole process straightforward and hassle-free.
Deposit can mean initial payment or initial rental depending on the contract type.
