What is Business Contract Hire?

Business Contract Hire is a leasing solution where a business rents a vehicle for a fixed period, usually ranging from 24 to 60 months. This option provides a simple way to manage a fleet without the responsibilities of ownership. It involves fixed monthly payments, allowing for easy budgeting and financial planning.

Key Benefits

  • Fixed Monthly Payments: Budget with confidence with predictable monthly expenses.
  • No Depreciation Concerns: Eliminate the risk of vehicle depreciation, a common issue with owned assets.
  • Maintenance Inclusion: Option to include maintenance and servicing in the contract for peace of mind.

How Does It Work?

  1. Select Your Vehicle: Choose from a wide range of vans that best suit your business needs.
  2. Customize Your Contract: Decide on the contract length, estimated mileage, and whether to include maintenance services.
  3. Monthly Payments: Make fixed monthly payments throughout the duration of the lease.
  4. Return the Vehicle: At the end of the lease, simply return the vehicle, avoiding the hassle of resale or disposal.

Is Business Contract Hire Right for Your Business?

Business Contract Hire is ideal for companies that prefer not to engage in the complexities of vehicle ownership and value the ease of fixed monthly costs. It’s particularly suitable for businesses that want to regularly update their fleet without dealing with depreciation or resale issues.
