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

17 April 2019

Maintenance cover takes away the stress and time involved in having to maintain your vehicle. 

We understand the importance of providing businesses with vehicle maintenance and routine service packages that offer 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 are included within your monthly rental 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

- Road Tax

- Replacement Vehicle (available at a small additional cost)

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. 

Fixed monthly payments

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

Value for money

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