What is contract hire?

Contract hire is a fully maintained leasing product. It allows you to take control of a vehicle for a fixed period without taking ownership of it. During the contract agreement we can also manage the maintenance of the vehicle for you, once the contract ends you return it to us.

We also provide a 24/7 nationwide support centre for the lifetime of your contract with us, covering maintenance as well as unplanned breakdowns, replacing the vehicles where required. The vehicles are also supplied in your colours and branding, ensuring they can be used straight away and no time is wasted.

It is a very popular way to fund a vehicle fleet with fixed monthly costs so you can budget accurately. Contracts range from 12 to 84 months and are tailored to your specific business requirements.

Features and benefits of contract hire

Fixed rentals throughout your contract hire enable you to budget accurately and smooth out your cash flow – so that you have no nasty surprises, particularly as your vehicles get older.
