Important Factors to Ask your Leasing Provider About

When you lease a vehicle, you'll be provided with everything you need to know; your contract length, your initial and monthly rentals and delivery date are all key pieces of information you'll need to know. But other important factors often get forgotten about, and can leave customers feeling confused. When you lease a car, van or pickup, you need a company that will answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease, allowing you to focus on getting on the road in your brand new car as soon as possible.

Here at MWVC, we will fully explain your contract to you, and will stay in contact throughout your lease to answer any questions you may have. With a range of personal and business lease deals on a range of cars, vans and pickups, we have the perfect contract suited to your budget. We can deliver your brand new vehicle straight to your door, free of charge, across mainland UK, where we simply hand you the keys to your new motor. With a wide range of vehicles to choose from, we're guaranteed to have the best leasing deal for you.


It is recommended that you get your vehicle serviced as per the manufacturer’s recommendations to keep it in optimal driving condition. Although it isn't required by law like your MOT, it is still highly recommended that you get your vehicle serviced, and when you lease, servicing is a must. This is so your leasing company can check your service history to make sure the vehicle has been kept in an optimal condition. Make sure to ask about servicing when talking to your sales executive to make sure everything is explained as clearly as possible.

Here at MWVC, we provide a maintenance package tailored to your contract length and mileage, which covers servicing, tyre replacement and other consumable parts. We strive to lower the overall running cost of your vehicle by ensuring you are provided with regular checks, and it can even be incorporated into your agreement. We provide vehicle leasing in Leicester and across the country to hundreds of satisfied customers, and we’re recognised not just for our extensive range of car, pickup and van leasing deals, but for our exemplary customer service and added incentives.

Insurance and Tax

It's a legal requirement that all vehicles must be insured. Most on-road vehicles must also be taxed too, though there are some exemptions. Driving without either is a criminal offence (if you’re not exempt from paying tax), so it's incredibly important that you make sure your new vehicle is insured and taxed before you start driving it. When it comes to insurance, one of our funders offers an agreement with insurance included (called Arval Total Care), but most customers like to arrange their insurance themselves. Tax is included in your monthly rentals on contract hire, so you don't have to worry about taxing the vehicle yourself.

Following an initial rental with us, your monthly rentals will remain the same throughout your contract, and your vehicle tax will be included in this price. We will remind you to arrange insurance as we set up your contract, and we will always be completely transparent concerning costing. If you're looking to lease a van, pickup or car, our range of lease deals are perfect for all budgets. The Volkswagen T-Roc is currently £284.12 per month inc. VAT, making it the perfect choice if you're looking for more space. You can view the rest of our special offer car leasing deals here.

Fair Wear and Tear

All of our funders here at MWVC use the BVRLA's (British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association’s) Fair Wear and Tear guide. At the end of your leasing contract, someone will come to collect your car and check to make sure it's still in good condition. Of course, minor bumps and scrapes happen, but some instances go way past fair wear and tear, and you may be charged for larger dents and scratches. In instances of accidents, the usual procedure will take place where your insurance will help you out if the vehicle isn't a write-off, but you should still let your leasing company know as soon as possible.

Here at MWVC, we always aim to make sure our lease deals match our customer's needs and preferences exactly, and we're always ready to answer any questions you may have. Vehicle leasing doesn't have to be a complicated process, and our friendly sales executives here at MWVC are on hand throughout your contract to make sure you're constantly in-the-know.
