Car Leasing

Car leasing is the most popular way that people purchase their new cars here in the UK. In fact, 80% of all new cars on the road in the UK are financed and purchased through some form of car leasing arrangement. When it comes to leasing there are a couple of points to consider, firstly are you going to be leasing the car personally or through a business agreement? On personal / private agreements all the prices quoted include VAT, whereas on a business lease all prices exclude VAT. This is the main principal difference between the two agreements.

Business Car Leasing – as a business owner or company director it is one of the perks of the job that you get to choose what car you want and to some extent how much you choose to pay. Having said this, in todays world when you lease a car through your business there are now a number of points to consider. The government has made it very clear that buying new cars that are CO2 emissions friendly and eco friendly mean that you will get the most tax relief at the end of each year. As a result of this hybrid and green cars have become very popular with business users. Cars such as the Audi A3 are now very popular because of their green appeal.

Personal / Private Customers – When you buy a new car on personal lease you get exactly the same car as you would if you went into a dealership. You get the same warranty, specification and cover as you would normally expect. The main difference is what you pay for the car. As an online business we use various lenders and negotiate deals in bulk on many different cars and as such we can save money on the cost of the lease when we supply them to you. All cars are delivered free of charge to address across the UK and normally take anywhere from 8-12 weeks for delivery.  The main benefit of leasing your new car from Car Leasing Online is that the monthly repayment is fixed and as such won’t change over the duration of the lease, allowing you to monitor and manage your money finances more efficiently.

Car Leasing Explained

Car leasing is one of the most popular ways to purchase and finance your new car. Here in the UK it is estimated that nearly 80% of all new cars on the road are financed and used in this way. There are a number of reasons for this, principally it offers new car buyers a very cost effective way for them to get behind the wheel of a new car every 2-3 years. It also takes any stress or worry out of your motoring as all new cars come with full manufactures warranty.

When it comes to leasing your new car there are two main points to think about – are you a business customer or a personal customer? The main reason this is important is that business customers have their prices shown without VAT and personal customers have the VAT included.

There are a couple of different options and contracts available when it comes to leasing a car and in today entry we will try to explain them and make them as simple as possible.

Personal Lease:

PCH – personal contract hire is the simplest way of leasing a car as a private customer. You simply pay a deposit of between 3, 6,9 or 12 monthly rentals up front and then each month pay your agreed rental. At the end if the agreement the car is simply returned with nothing more to pay. This allows you have a nice new car regular.

PCP – personal contract purchase is similar to PCH, although at the end of the agreement you have the option to purchase the car.

Hire Purchase – This option essentially lets you fund the cost of the whole car, minus any deposit that you put down. Typically this option has higher monthly payments compared to the other finance options.

Business Lease:

Contract Hire – as with the PCH for private customers, contract hire works in a very similar way. The only difference being that all prices are plus VAT on business prices.

Finance Lease and sale and lease back are just some of the other options available for business customers, although contract hire is by far the most popular option.

I hope today’s entry has explained on some way the options that are available to you should you wish to purchase your new car with Car Leasing Online. If you are unsure or have any question then please do give us a call and one of our leasing experts will be on hand to help and advise.

Personal Car Leasing Advice

September is one of two months in the year when new cars and registrations take place and if you are looking for a new car, now is a good time to start thinking about the make and model you would like to buy. Quite often, new cars that are going out and being sold on personal lease can take up to 6 weeks to be delivered from main dealers and this is why August is a good month to start thinking about your next new car.

When leasing a car on Personal Car Leasing there a number of points to consider. These include:

How long do you want the car for?

This affects the monthly payments as how old the car is at the end of the agreement affects its long-term residual value and has to be taken into consideration when working out the monthly payments.

How many months initial rental do you want to put down (Pay)?

The initial deposit or up-front payment as it is sometimes known as, is often 3, 6, 9 or 12 x the monthly rental and this payment has an effect on much your ongoing monthly rental will be. As a general rule, the larger the initial deposit the less the ongoing monthly payments will be.

What sort of annual mileage will you do each year?

The annual mileage has large effect on the residual value of the car and this is considered and influences the monthly rental cost.

The process involved in leasing your new car is fairly simple once you know what car you want.
