What is a Commercial Vehicle?

If you utilise a vehicle for transporting goods, materials or other assorted items for business purposes, it is known as a 'commercial vehicle.' They have many different intended purposes, but are mainly used by a range of different businesses across the country. Whether you opt for a singular vehicle or a whole fleet, buying outright can be costly, and can be considered a bad investment for your business. Luckily, there are commercial vehicle leasing deals out there to suit all preferences and budgets.

Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC) we have a vast collection of van, pickup and car leasing deals perfect for personal and business use alike. All of our leasing contracts can be tailored to you, allowing you to make initial and monthly rentals in line with your budget. We can even deliver your brand-new motor straight to your location across mainland UK as part of your lease agreement, allowing you to enjoy your new vehicle as soon as possible.

Different Uses

As previously mentioned, commercial vehicles have many different uses when it comes to businesses. One of the most popular variations are vans, used for their various styles, sizes and payloads depending on the business's needs. Panel vans are often seen on the roads, driven by tradesmen and delivery drivers alike. Pickup trucks are also considered to be commercial vehicles, with easy unloading and offloading features usually preferred by construction workers transporting heavy materials to and from jobs.

Here at MWVC, we have a range of van leasing deals perfect for helping businesses manage their finances. This all-new Ford Transit Custom is just £188.75 * per month ex.

How Can Businesses Benefit from Commercial Vehicles?

If you're just starting out, it might be tempting to buy a cheap, old commercial vehicle to get you started. However, buying outright can put a significant dent in your finances, and over time, the vehicle will have depreciated. By turning to commercial vehicle leasing, you can have a brand-new motor for a fraction of the price of buying outright, with monthly rentals that never change throughout your contract. Commercial vehicles also come in a range of styles and sizes, allowing you to choose the very best for the needs of your business.

When leasing for a business, if you're VAT registered, you'll be able to claim back up to 100% of the VAT on the rental payment of any commercial vehicle. Road tax is also included, even in personal car leasing. If you're looking for a pickup lease deal, this new Ford Ranger is just £225.70* per month ex. VAT, with a payload of 1056kg perfect for transporting heavy machinery and tools. You can find the rest of our pickup special offers here.
