Why Should I Lease My Next Van?

Many motorists throughout the UK are choosing to lease their vehicles rather than buying them outright. This goes for people who need their vehicle for personal use, and for people who need it for business use too. There are so many leasing options available that pretty much anyone who needs a vehicle - whether that's a car or a van - can get a great deal on it.

Here in the UK we love our vans - they're everywhere and always have been. Vans allow us to transport goods and materials in an easy way, and will always be popular across a wide range of industries. They come in all different shapes and sizes, at LeaseVan can provide you with a van that is the exact shape and size that you want - not to mention the colour and all sorts of other specification you require. We stock a wide range from all of the best manufacturers, and this allows us to provide every customer with the van which suits them, whether its for business use or just sporadic use a couple of days a week.

This page aims to outline the reasons why you should lease your next van instead of buying one outright. As you've probably already surmised, we are massive advocates of leasing and believe that it's the way forward for the vast majority of motorists - van users, car users, tradesmen, and all sorts. The advantages of leasing vehicles is becoming harder to ignore, which we are extremely pleased about.

Below you will be able to read about the popular leasing options for vans specifically, and some explanation as to how they�re advantageous. Of course, given that vans are used as commercial vehicles generally speaking, the below paragraphs will mainly focus on business lease agreements, though we will touch upon that too.

Business Contract Hire

Contract Hire is said to be the most popular form of leasing in the UK. This is because it offers a number of benefits to drivers, whether they're driving a van or a car, and whether that's for personal or business use. The main advantages of Business Contract Hire are:

  • The fact that you can reclaim 50% of the VAT on the finance
  • A guaranteed fixed cost motoring experience
  • Low initial payments as opposed to a large initial deposit
  • Improved cash flow within the business
  • A number of different, flexible payment options to suit many businesses
  • Maintenance packages which will cover the cost of any repairs you may require throughout the contract
  • The fact that you can reclaim 100% of the VAT on the maintenance

Business Contract Purchase

Some people like the idea of leasing and how it is fixed cost motoring, but some are put off by the fact that the vehicle will never be theirs (though many people see this as an advantage). For people who do want to eventually own the van they're leasing, Business Contract Purchase may be the right option.

When you enter into a Business Contract Purchase arrangement, you are essentially purchasing the van in a much more gradual way, which consequently is much more manageable. As with Business Contract Hire, your initial payments will be low - which is very seldom the case when you�re buying a vehicle outright, as large deposits are often required.

Another great illustration of the flexibility of Business Contract Purchase is the fact that you can, if you want to, decide not to take up ownership of the car once the agreement comes to an end. The payments you make throughout the agreement will also of course be fixed and thereby provide you with some security, allowing you to budget for other things that your business may need.

Will I benefit from van leasing?

There are a great number of people who will find that leasing their van is a much better option than going out and buying it brand new, outright. For starters, when you lease a van from us, the one you get will be brand new and in perfect condition, as we source all of our vehicles directly from the manufacturer themselves.

Basically, anybody who would like to enjoy a much more straightforward and hassle-free motoring experience will not regret leasing their van. Whether you're a lone tradesmen who requires a van for the day-to-day transportation of yourself and your working materials, or if you're a large business which requires a whole fleet of vans, you'll be doing the right thing by leasing.

As there are so many different leasing options available, there is a deal which will suit almost everyone who requires a van. The two listed above are by no means the only options you have - there are a handful or so more - but they are arguably the most popular.
