Contract Hire and Leasing Guide

Contract Hire with Maintenance
All Vehicle Contracts Contract Hire and Leasing Guide - Contract Hire with Maintenance

    Fully maintained contract hire offers you and your company the convenience and reassurance that you will never be faced with unexpected bills, enabling you to budget company car maintenance costs with confidence and total control.

    Our aim is to find the right solution for you and your business from our wide range of products and services, and recommend you compare both contract hire without maintenance and contract hire with full maintenance. Contract hire agreements that include maintenance are constructed to cover all your motoring costs excluding fuel and insurance; this includes:

    • The cost of any additional servicing and maintenance (including replacement parts) required to keep the vehicle in good order and serviced to the manufactures recommendations
    • Road fund licence for the contract period
    • Provide and pay for all tyres needing replacement due to fair wear and tear
    • Current MOT certificate were applicable
    Why should I include full maintenance in the contract?

    Put simply, fixed cost motoring could be cheaper and more cost effective than you think. Fully maintained contract hire agreements are not just a benefit for fleet managers with larger fleets; fully maintained contract hire agreements will fix costs for the duration of the agreement and hedge against unforeseen repairs or rises in maintenance charges for anyone who chooses contract hire with maintenance. This includes personal contract hire.

    Edging your risk on maintenance expenditure

    Including maintenance provides customers with a cost effective edge against unforeseen maintenance expenditure.

    Things like clutch replacement, battery or mechanical failure happen, sometimes they don’t; but if they do it can result in unforeseen costs.

    Because contract hire providers are able to spread your vehicle maintenance expenditure over their fleet size, they can negotiate favourable labour rates and discounted terms on service items, tyres, parts and materials, based on their fleet size that often run into several thousand or more vehicles.

    This buying power results in lower vehicle fleet maintenance costs, with the savings reflected in the contract payments.

    Effective vehicle maintenance administration

    Contract hire providers have professional fleet controllers that arrange all aspects of the vehicles maintenance schedule, deal with manufacturer recalls and service updates on your behalf minimising the vehicles down time and keeping your vehicle on the road.

    Fleet controllers also control/log all the paperwork and analyse vehicle data such as mileage and repair history. This data provides an invaluable source of information that can be provided to customers and fleet managers for the purpose of providing effective vehicle management and control, saving you time in vehicle administration, knowing that your vehicles will be maintained to manufacturer standards and quality repairs carried out without fuss.

    How Contract Hire with Maintenance can save you money

    Contract hire providers are more likely to achieve a profit on end of contract sale if the vehicle is complete with full service history, making maintained contracts a more attractive proposition than those of non-maintained contracts.

    To encourage maintained contact business, contract hire providers may offer incentives such as reduced cost of funding or increase in predicted future residual value of the car; both these factors would effectively lower the cost of the rental making a fully maintained contract more competitive.

    Always compare both contract hire with and without maintenance, the saving may surprise you.
