How Leasing Works

Contract Hire (or Personal Contract Hire for individuals) is a fixed term contract where you or your business pay a set monthly rental for the use of a new vehicle for a set period. It benefits anyone wanting to eliminate the financial risk, outlay and ‘hidden costs’ often associated with buying, owning and then selling on of a vehicle.

After you have chosen your new lease vehicle, it is purchased by one of Lease Comparison’s chosen funders (or finance companies) who will charge you a fixed monthly rental until the end of the lease period, giving you the use of a new vehicle. Once the term is over you simply hand the vehicle back, and either take out a new lease or not – it is completely up to you. There is no risk of depreciation, no hassle part exchanging and no need to borrow money to buy the vehicle. The finance company take on the risks of ownership, including: depreciation, unforeseen changes in vehicle value and the cost of interest. 

All vehicles from Lease Comparison are new and supplied direct from an Authorised Franchise Dealer. This means they come with the manufacturer’s warranty and roadside assistance. Road tax is included for the full term and Lease Comparison also offer delivery free of charge to your door, anywhere in mainland UK.

"Is leasing for me?"

If you're used to buying outright or borrowing to finance your vehicles, you might be surprised when you find out how much of the cost you could save by leasing a vehicle - and the cost is set for the length of the contract which means no nasty surprises.
