The minimum mileage allowance can be as low as 5,000 miles per annum then increasing to a maximum of 50,000, however this is dependent on the funder.
Private individuals must be over 18 years of age, you must be a resident in the UK for a minimum of 3 years and be on the electoral role at their current address. To achieve the best price there may be other criteria according to a specific offer you choose as we use various funders.

For private individuals we may require last 3 months bank slips and/or payslips.
We will endeavour to inform you of the outcome within 48 hours of your application, however, this may be affected by the volume of applications at the time and any requests for clarification or further information.
All of the data will be encrypted from our server to the client machine using a SSL certificate to ensure the data is not put at risk. All data is then encrypted into our database, which is accessed by ourselves through the password protected section of the site.
All vehicles we supply are new unless otherwise specified and benefit from full manufactures warranty.
Due to the extraordinary level of discount we receive on new vehicles it is not normally cost effective to supply used vehicles. However, occasionally if we are offered an exceptional batch of quality cars we may put together a bespoke offer.
We do not take vehicles in part exchange although we may be able to put you in touch with a local dealer who could give you a price for your current vehicle.
Sometimes a dealer will ask for a deposit to order the vehicle. This is very rare and is usually a) if the vehicle is of an unusual specification or colour or b) to secure a build slot of a vehicle which is yet to be released. We will notify you of this prior to you placing an order. The deposit will be payable directly to the dealer. We charge a document fee of £195 + vat (£234 including vat) at the point of issuing the finance agreement which is payable to us before delivery of the vehicle. The deposit or initial rental required by the finance company and detailed in your agreement is payable directly to the finance company. This is usually taken by direct debit immediately after delivery of the vehicle.
If you cancel your order, we will charge a fee of £300.00 + VAT. You will receive notice in writing of the charge and this may be paid by cheque or direct bank transfer.
The contract agreements will be posted to you for completion and we will ask you to return them along with any proof of identity, address or other information relating to the credit application that may be required by the funder such as driving licences, passports or utility bills.
This will depend if you have chosen a stock vehicle or if the vehicle is being factory built to your exact specification. You will also be required to sign and return any documents and initial payment to us before we can arrange a delivery date. Your account manager will give you an estimated delivery timescale upon placing your order.
We prefer to use our network of preferred suppliers as we have agreed standards of service and an excellent pricing structure, however, we will negotiate with your local dealer if you would like us to and if they can meet the required terms then we can use them to supply cars or vans for commercial vehicle leasing.
We will deliver your vehicle anywhere on the UK mainland during our normal hours of business, Monday to Friday 9am to 5.30pm. Other delivery time slots may be arranged if necessary but will be subject to availability. Most deliveries are driven although if you specifically request it we may be able to arrange a transporter in some circumstances although this may incur an additional cost.
Monthly payments are taken by direct debit and must be from a bank account that matches the name of the individual on the agreement.
If you want to end your agreement early you will normally be charged an early termination fee which will depend on how far into the agreement you are and the current mileage of the vehicle. It is also dependent on the type of finance you have chosen. The best thing is to contact us for guidance if you think you may need to do this.
Depending on the type of contract you have chosen the vehicle will either be returned to the funder or you will make any final payments to retain ownership or dispose of the vehicle. Vehicles are expected to be returned in a reasonable condition as stated in the BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear guidelines a hard copy of which can be forwarded to you upon request from your Account Manager or Customer Service team.
We will normally arrange collection from an address specified by you anywhere in the UK mainland. It is however a clause of most finance agreements that they reserve the right to ask you to return the vehicle to them at the end although this is not normally enforced.
Depending on the mileage of the vehicle we can obtain a quotation for you to extend the vehicle although the terms are dependent on the particular funder.
All new vehicles will come with a warranty the length of which is dependent on the vehicle you have chosen. Any manufacturing faults or defects that occur during this period will be repaired under the warranty and you will also benefit from roadside assistance for at least some of the warranty period.
If you have chosen a non-maintenance contract then you will be required to service the vehicle in accordance with manufacturer's guidelines at your own expense and all servicing and repairs should normally be carried out by a main franchised service centre. If you have opted for a full maintenance contract then you will simply need to contact the funder who will arrange for the work to be carried out by an approved local supplier at no additional cost. Relief vehicles can also be included in the maintenance costs which is particularly beneficial for commercial vehicle leasing where a vehicle needs to be fit for the purposes of the business.
Full maintenance includes all routine servicing, repairs, maintenance and tyres required due to normal wear and tear throughout the term of your agreement subject to contracted mileage limitations.
This is dependent on the type of finance agreement you have chosen for full details please visit the finance options section of our website.
The individual named on the agreement is responsible for arranging fully comprehensive insurance on the vehicle for the entire duration or the contract.
As members of the British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association (BVRLA) we adhere to the Leasing Broker Members Code of Conduct.

DPF stands for Diesel Particulate Filter, a device designed specifically to remove diesel particulate matter (also known as soot) from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. Wall-flow DPFs usually remove 85% or more of the soot; sometimes even 100% under certain conditions. Other filters are for single-use only, which should always be replaced once they get filled with ash accumulated over time. Diesel vehicles with DPFs regularly need to go through a process of regeneration to clear out soot and allow the vehicle to operate properly. Failure to follow the process and ignoring warning lights will likely cause damage to the vehicle. If you plan to use it mainly for town-based, stop/start driving then you should consider that a petrol, petrol hybrid, electric or alternatively fuelled vehicle may be more suitable for your needs. Alternatively, if you proceed to order a diesel vehicle, then giving consideration to a change in your journey profile by incorporating longer journeys in order to limit the possibility of considerable downtime and expensive repairs is recommended.AD Blue is a consumable that is not covered under a maintenance agreement. The cost and replacement of this is your responsibility.
