What is the Deal with Leasing a Van?
When people talk about leasing a van, they most likely mean Business Contract Hire. Fortunately, the fundamentals are straightforward, but to assist you, we have compiled a list of everything you need to know about when leasing a van from MW Vehicle Contracts (MWVC).
Once you've discovered the van you're looking for, a member of our team will discuss it with you and go over all of your specific needs. This is referred to as qualification, and it will cover everything from your average yearly mileage and how long you would like the vehicle to how the van will be used and who will most likely be driving it. This doesn't take much time, just a few minutes, but it allows us to completely grasp each client's needs and, as a result, recommend the best type of funding for you.
The initial rental is the first payment of the agreement, followed by your monthly rentals after that. At the quoting part of the process, you choose the amount that you will have discussed with your sales executive during the qualification process. However, it is usually based on a multiple of the monthly rental and would be three, six, or nine times the monthly rental. Initial rentals of one or twelve times are also possible with MWVC.
The term refers to how long the agreement will last and, as a result, how long you will have the vehicle. Contract hire agreements range from 24 to 60 months, or two to five years. Nevertheless, most people stick to three years. This is usually a good compromise between budget and maintaining a relatively new vehicle. Furthermore, in the majority of cases, it means you're always covered by the manufacturer's warranty. At MWVC, we take a holding deposit to secure the vehicle, once the order has been made we usually deposit it into your account 14 days after you have taken delivery.
