Have you considered commercial van leasing?

Buying a new business van or commercial fleet for your company is an expensive upfront cost. You have to ensure you have the capital to purchase a new vehicle(s). So why not consider business contract hire for your van or think about fleet van leasing?
You've heard the term van leasing before, or perhaps you've been recommended by a friend to look into it. There are many pros and cons as to why leasing a van for your business is more beneficial than buying outright.
If you're a sole trader, small business or a fleet manager, at some point you would have considered the best options for being able to get a new van or perhaps a fleet of company vehicles, and one of those choices would have been leasing a van.

What is van leasing?

Van leasing is the hiring of a vehicle over an agreed period of time between 24 months and 60 months. An initial rental, normally 3/6/9/12 times the monthly payment is paid upfront, and then pre-agreed monthly payments are made for the duration of the agreement at which point upon completion the van is returned, allowing you to either get a new van or leave entirely.

What are the different types of hire agreement?

The most popular is Business Contract Hire or Finance Lease however there are a wide range of different agreement types that are weighed up by our leasing experts when considering the best finance product for your business, read our guide to eligibility and more information on the different types of finance product here.

  2. The hassle of maintenance can be included for a small amount extra per month
  3. A smaller upfront payment compared to outright purchase
