Simple Steps to Leasing a Vehicle

When it comes to buying your next vehicle, it can be hard to decide which payment route to go down. Nowadays, it is becoming increasingly popular to opt for vehicle leasing, which allows customers to drive a brand new car for a fixed monthly cost. It can be a great way to manage your money, and allows you to drive the latest model without breaking the bank. But where do you start? Luckily, we’re here to help.

Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC) we lease a range of cars, vans and pickups for private hire and businesses alike. With a range of monthly rentals and vehicles to choose from, we have car, pickup and van lease deals perfect for any budget. Looking for the best car leasing procedure to follow?

Find a Vehicle and Get a Quote

First things first, you need to decide upon your next vehicle. Buying a car can be a difficult decision to make, especially with a range of different models to choose from. By narrowing your choice down to what amenities you want, you can settle on the next perfect vehicle for you. Once you’ve decided, you can enquire by getting in touch with one of our friendly sales executives, who will discuss all of your specific requirements with you.

A range of topics will be covered during your quotation, including your expected annual mileage and your contract length, plus a few other small details. You have a couple of options when it comes to choosing your perfect agreement; do you go for a customer maintained agreement or a funder maintained option? The former means you will pay solely for the vehicle in your monthly rentals, whilst the latter involves paying for the vehicle plus maintenance and parts replacement. Here at MWVC, we offer car, pickup and van leasing in the UK on a range of different deals, with models designed to suit every customer. You can view our special offers here.

Funding and Financing

Once you’ve discussed the details of your quote, it’s time to explore your funding options. This decides which funder will handle your lease agreement. Once you’ve decided upon the best van, pickup or car lease deal, you need to send in your finance application, which isn’t as scary as it sounds, and your account manager can guide you through it. The application contains basic details about yourself, such as your address, your state of employment and a few more little details. Your sales executive will provide you with more details on your call.

Following this, you will be sent a vehicle order form to get the wheels turning for the delivery of your new motor. This will include similar details to your quote, but will inform you of your proposed delivery date. All you have to do is read it over, sign it, and send it back. Here at MWVC, we can discuss all documents and added extras with you, including the BVRLA “Fair Wear and Tear” policy, which you can find here.


You will need to iron out a few more details with a member of the admin department, who will make sure all documents are signed before booking your delivery date. Your brand new vehicle will be delivered at a date best suited to you, so make sure you’re available! Here at MWVC, we deliver all leased vehicles directly to any door across mainland UK. Once your driver has delivered your car, they will talk you through the basics and will be ready to answer any questions you may have. Then the vehicle is yours for the next few years.

Once your contract is up, you can give your old car back in exchange for a brand new model, and you can browse our extensive vehicle leasing deals once more. Alternatively, there may be options to keep your vehicle, which you can discuss with a member of the team. Here at MWVC, we will keep in constant contact with you throughout your contract, preparing you for the end and discussing your options.
