What is a maintenance agreement? What's included and what isn't?

30 July 2020


Maintenance cover takes away the stress and time involved in having to maintain your leased vehicle. This may also be known as a service contract.

We understand the importance of providing businesses and private individuals with car and van leasing deals that include maintenance and routine service packages offering good value for money and peace of mind.

Our vehicle maintenance management service is your one-stop-shop for sustaining the day-to-day efficiency of your vehicle, be it a car, van or commercial vehicle. We take away the worry and resource involved in the upkeep and smooth running of your vehicle(s). 

The cost of the following items is included within your monthly rentals when taking up the option of maintenance in addition to the standard vehicle warranty. 


Funder maintained includes:

- Routine Servicing

All vehicles are serviced in line with the manufacturers recommended servicing intervals. 

- Mechanical Repairs

- Tyres

Premium brand tyres are fitted by our approved suppliers. We replace all damaged tyres and any tyres with a tread depth of 2mm or less across the central 3 quarters of the tread band (the legal minimum is 1.6mm).

- Batteries

- Exhausts

- Breakdown Recovery

- Road Tax

- Replacement Vehicle (available at a small additional cost)


What's not included in funder maintained?

- Driver error or driver induced faults

- Accident damage

- Missing/Broken items

- Vandalism or stolen items

- Windscreen and/or glass replacement

- Fuelling Error

- Lubricant and Fluid Top Ups between service intervals, for example, AdBlue® 


Customer maintained includes:

- Road Tax


Why choose a maintained package?

Fixed monthly cost

During the quoting stage, you will be given two options; a customer maintained price and a funder maintained price. Our transparent communication ensures you’re never charged with unexpected costs. 


We use our industry expertise to keep costs much lower than would be available to you as an independent buyer.

QUALITY of work from Fully qualified dealer approved technicians and garages

Your vehicles will benefit from quality workmanship and the highest standard of care from trained experts.


           Minimum downtime and disruption to your business. We will look after you and your vehicle.

No unplanned maintenance charges

           No more unexpected expenses. You're fully covered. 

           TAX BENEFITS

           Claim back 100% of the maintenance VAT element of your agreement (VAT Registered Businesses Only)

           Single point of contact & dedicated account manager

           We assign each customer with a single point of contact for all account management needs, including routine servicing and maintenance queries. 


Funder maintained cover provides you with a comprehensive solution to your vehicle maintenance needs, saving you both time and money.

Maintenance cover is, therefore, an option that we strongly recommend whether you're choosing personal leasing, business leasing, fleet leasing, leasing a car or leasing a van.
