Top 3 customer questions of the week

End-of-contract vehicle purchase, early cancellations, and pre-purchase vehicle viewing are the key subjects we've answered questions on this week. Here's what we replied…

If I lease a pickup truck from you will I be able to buy it at the end of my contract?

If you are looking to own the vehicle at the end of the term, Contract Purchase or Lease Purchase will be the best finance options for you. These are the only options we offer that allow you to take ownership of the vehicle. Out of the two, Contract Purchase is the most popular, but have a read on the below links to see what would be best for you:

I am nearly 3 years into a 5-year Finance Lease, what are the costs to terminate the contract early?

We can always look at ending the agreement early. With a Finance Lease agreement, you need to sell the vehicle at the end of the term, if you are ending the agreement early we will need to see how much the vehicle is worth and compare that against the amount still owed to the finance company. We will then be able to work out if you have positive or negative equity.

As for next steps, the best course of action is to get in touch with the sales team on 01442 838 193 who will be happy to help.


I'm about to order a van on Contract Hire. Is it possible to view the vehicle before proceeding with finance application?

Although the majority of our vehicles are in stock they are in stock all around the country in various compounds. We do not have any vehicles at our head office that we would be able to show you, however please get in touch and we will see if we can get something arranged.
