Leasing a Car or Van for your Business

Does My Business Need a Car or a Van?

When you're looking for the perfect vehicle or fleet for your business, you need to consider the very best model for your needs and how much it's going to cost. Buying a car, van or pickup outright can put a serious dent in your finances, and isn't considered a good business investment in the long term. Therefore, vehicle leasing is the most cost-effective option, providing you with a brand-new vehicle at a fraction of the price. From large and small van lease deals to cars and pickups perfectly suited to your business preferences, we've got the perfect deal for you here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC).

All of our vehicle leasing contracts can be tailored to your budget and preferences, perfect for personal and business contracts alike. If you need a whole fleet of cars or vans, buying outright can be incredibly costly, especially if you're a small business. By selecting a van leasing deal suited to your business, you can monitor your monthly expenses and payments, allowing you to manage your finances effectively. If you're unsure of whether a car or van is best for your business, read our latest article below.

Consider the Vehicle's Main Purpose

One of the most frequent questions that passes a van buyer's mind is, "what exactly do I need this vehicle for?" It's an important question to ask yourself, as you don't want to end up with a vehicle that's either too small or has the wrong payload. For instance, if you work in construction, you're going to need a large van with plenty of storage space for your tools and equipment. If you need to nip in and out of town with ease and fit into smaller spaces, a van such as the Citroen Berlingo might have the perfect dimensions for you, and choosing the best vehicle will usually work out to be more cost-effective too.

If you need a smaller commercial vehicle to help you carry out your work with ease, this Ford Transit Connect costs just £148.35* per month ex. VAT on a business lease deal with us. If you're a VAT registered business, you can even enjoy tax and VAT benefits, saving you more money in the process.

Your Business and its Needs

Much like your vehicle’s main purpose, the sector you specialise in also has a major influence over the vehicle you may choose to opt for. Tradesmen such as electricians or plumbers are often seen in larger vans with double back doors or sliding doors for ease of access. On the other hand, small mobile businesses such as dog groomers may only need a simple car or microvan so they can discreetly park up and a client's home. A vehicle that has the perfect amount of space for you and your equipment can help you feel more comfortable in your vehicle. If you're still stuck for choice, then don't worry. Our sales team will offer objective advice on the very best vehicle for you and your business.

Here at MWVC, we provide pickup, van and car leasing in Leicester and across mainland UK, delivering your brand-new vehicle directly to your door or business premises. This all-new Ford Fiesta microvan is perfect if you need a car-sized vehicle but with extra storage space, at just £159.07* per month ex. VAT. These micro vans are ideal no matter whether you need a singular model or a whole fleet for your business, and you can even opt for a mild hybrid version to make your business eco-friendlier.

The Benefits of a Company Car

If your business doesn't necessarily require a van, but your employees often need to travel around, then it might be worth considering company cars. It could provide a recruitment incentive if you're looking to expand, especially if you operate a car fuel benefit. If you're looking into company cars for your business, you should consider vehicle leasing as a way to cut costs and let your employees drive the latest models.
