Hi Andy. I'm interested in a finance lease on a citroen dispatch. Do Vanarama offer unlimited mileage, same as citroen do?

Our expert Gary answered... Hi Anthony, that's an interesting question. It's true of finance leasing in general that there aren't technically any restrictions on your mileage. This is in comparison to contract hire, which would involve a strict mileage limit built into your contract. When a member of our team gives you a quote for a Finance Lease, they will base it on your individual requirements and expected mileage to make sure that your payments are realistic. One aspect of this is the Optional Final Payment at the end of your Van Lease, which is based on the residual value of your vehicle as determined by the finance company. The residual value takes into account the contract length and approximate mileage, so it's important for this to be accurate, andHigher mileage would reduce the residual value of the vehicle over time. its worth taking this into account when you're looking at the costs. If you'd like to discuss this further with our team, they'd be happy to help. They can be contacted on 01442 820554. Thanks, Andy.

Is there an annual mileage limitation on your leased vans?

Our expert Richard answered... Hi Leigh, thank you for getting in touch with us.If you go for a contract hire agreement you will be asked to estimate your annual mileage at the beginning of the contract, to establish the most suitable arrangement for you. You would then be expected to stay within this mileage, and would be charged for excess mileage at the end of the contract if you go over it. For Finance Lease agreements you will still be asked about your typical mileage but excess mileage charges won't apply. Instead, your final rental (balloon) would be calculated based on the residual value of the vehicle at the end of the contract. That means its still important for your mileage estimate to be accurate, as your mileage will impact the vehicle's residual value.If you have any more questions or would like to discuss this with an experienced member of our team, we'd be more than happy to help.Kind regards,Lucy

Our expert Gary answered... Hi Trevor and thanks for your question.

Is there an excess mileage charge and do you allow the vans to be stickered?

Our expert Gary answered... Thanks for your question. With regards to mileage, there will be an excess charge calculated in pence per mile. We would need to run a quotation to see exactly what this cost would be. We recommend using the vinyl type of sign writing which can be easily removed at the end of your contract. You are more then welcome to give me a call and we can run through all of the details over the phone if you would prefer. Kind regards, Richard Wells

Hi there, I have a quote at the moment on a pick up. The deposit represents the first three months payments or is equal to that, is this deposit payment deduced from the overall length of the lease, in my case 60 months? Or does it represent the first three months' worth of payments? What I am trying to say is really, when does the first payment fall due under personal contract hire?

Our expert Richard answered... Hello Anna, thanks for your question. I would have to look at your exact quotation to be able to advise. The majority of the contracts will have your initial rental followed by a further 59 rentals, but there are options as you have mentioned where you pay for the last 3 rentals at the start of the contract. This option is not as popular but it does give you a few months rental free at the end of the agreement where you can save for the next initial rental if you take out another vehicle. If you would like to discuss this further, then please contact one of our specialists on 01442 838193. Kind regards, Richard Wells.

Hi, I currently have a van contract with you & to date one year in I have exceeded my mileage allowance within my contract. Is it possible to amend my mileage/monthly rental? Many thanks.

Our expert Richard answered... Hi David, thank you for getting in touch. That's correct! We will have to check which finance company you are with, however we should be able to get a price to increase the mileage in your monthly payments. It would be worth giving us a call first, as it may be less money to pay the excess pence per mile at the end of the term, instead of increasing the monthly rentals. Please give us a call on the below number and we will be able to talk through the options. Please call 0845 094 1399 and select option 4. Many thanks. Kind regards, Richard Wells.

If i decided to lease a pick-up for 2 - 3 years depending on price, is there an option at the end of the lease to buy the pick-up or do i have to start the lease again with another vehicle?

Our expert Richard answered... Hello Kevin, thanks for your question. The answer is yes, there is an option to buy the vehicle after the lease is up. We can offer two different leasing options for personal. Below, I have written a brief description of both the terms we offer: Personal contract hire (PCH) is a perfect product for an individual who wants fixed cost motoring and is confident about the mileage and condition of the vehicle over a set period of time. It is an easy and cost-effective way to fund vehicles and it enables you to control one of your biggest expenses. PCH is available with or without a maintenance package, which offers fixed cost motoring with noHidden extras. Personal contract hire is similar to Business contract hire. However, as an individual, you will not be able to recover any VAT or take advantage of any tax allowances. Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is fast becoming one of the most popular ways of financing the new vehicle of your choice, simply due to its flexibility. You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. In return, you get fixed cost motoring for the term of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the minimum guaranteed future value), part exchange the car and use the equity you have built up as the deposit on another new car, or hand the vehicle back to the lender and walk away without owing anybody anything (subject to the mileage and condition of the vehicle at this time). If you'd like to discuss this further please call us on 01442 838 195. Alternatively, please let us know the best contact number for you and I will arrange for one of our specialists to call you. Kind regards, Richard Wells.
