What is Business Contract Hire?

If you´re looking for a van for business use, you may want to take a close look at Business Contract Hire. Many people across the UK are now choosing to lease their commercial vehicles as opposed to buying them, as the former can be much more convenient for some.

Here at LeaseVan, we have a great many different vans available for Business Contract Hire. We can offer you the finest vans from the most reputable manufacturers - such as Ford, Fiat, Citroen, Mercedes-Benz and many more - all for superb monthly fees.

When you lease a van instead of buying it outright, you are making life a whole lot easier for yourself - it´s one less thing for you and your business to worry about. When you buy a vehicle outright, you of course have to sell it on once you no longer have use for it - which can be a really stressful experience. However, leasing eliminates all of that - once your contract with us comes to an end, you´ll simply hand the van back to us and we´ll take it from there.

Another massive advantage to leasing is that you can gain access to maintenance packages - which will be included in your monthly cost - which will cover everything. This will mean that you won´t have to worry about how it will impact your wallet (or your company´s finances) if something goes wrong with the van - your package will cover this.

Business Contract Hire is a way in which you can enjoy hassle-free motoring, allowing you to concentrate much more on your business as opposed to how you get from A to B. All of the vans we stock come directly from the manufacturer and are brand new, so you can rest assured that what you´ll be getting is a top-of-the-range vehicle which will serve you well.

So what is Business Contract Hire?

As with most leasing agreements, Business Contract Hire gives you access to a vehicle for a set period of time. For the duration of the contract, you will be able to use the vehicle as though it is your own, and enjoy all the same perks a vehicle owner does - without all the hassle that comes with it.

Usually, Business Contract Hire agreements will last for anything between two and five years. Generally speaking, the longer the contract, the lower the monthly payments will be.

Who would be suited to Business Contract Hire?

It´s not just large businesses who require multiple vehicles who would be able to enjoy the advantages of Business Contract Hire contracts - absolutely not. Small businesses or one-man enterprises will also find that it is financially advantageous to them. Many people who take out this sort of agreement are self-employed tradespeople who need a reliable vehicle.

We at LeaseVan understand that many people rely on their vans for their livelihood - without a van, many tradespeople and businesspeople have no way of getting from A to B. For this reason, we are committed to providing the very best customer service out there for every single one of our customers.

The advantages of Business Contract Hire

The servicing and maintenance of your van is something you won´t have to worry about - this will be included in your monthly fees, and will not incur any extra costs. If anything does go wrong with your vehicle, it will be fixed extremely quickly, as we understand that you need it back as soon as humanly possible, in order to run your business.

Business Contract Hire agreements are suited to anybody who wants to enjoy fixed-cost motoring at its best. This can be extremely advantageous for any sort of businessperson or self-employed individual, as it will allow you to see exactly how much of your money goes onto your vehicle. Your cash flow will greatly improve and you will be able to budget much more effectively if you enter into a Business Contract Hire agreement, as you´ll have a much better understanding of your finances.

The low initial payments are much more convenient than the sort of deposits you would have to make on a car that you plan to buy outright, which means that with a Business Contract Hire agreement, you´ll be able to gain access to a brand new vehicle much more quickly.

Business Contract Hire will also suit anyone who doesn´t want to worry about the depreciation of a vehicle - which surely is all of us?! As you won´t be selling the van on after you´re done with it - and will instead hand it back to us - you won´t have to go through the headache of trading it in or trying to sell it on for a reasonable figure.

Another fantastic advantage is the fact that you can claim 50% of the VAT on finance back, and 100% of the VAT on maintenance. If you´re coming to us for a fleet of vans, there are discounts available (if you´d like to know more about this, give us a call and talk to one of our knowledgeable and friendly members of staff).
