Hi guys, good morning. I'm looking at a large van i.e. Citroen Relay or similar size that I can stand up in. What we do is mobile dog grooming. Can I fit the van out inside with all my equipment i.e baths, grooming tables etc etc. and sign write the vehicle? At the end of the lease how does that vehicle have to be returned? Obviously I would remove all my equipment but do I need to remove all the inside van flooring for instance and all the sign writing? How does it all work please? And do you supply them with a full maintenance and for what period? At the end of that period, say 3 years for instance, can I get another new van and just continue? Thanks, Kev

Hi Kevin, thanks for your question. Yes, the van can be fitted with all of the equipment you need for your dog grooming business, and you can definitely sign write it (we recommend using vinyl signwriting as this can be easily removed at the end of the contract). If you were going to be choosing a Contract Hire agreement the vehicle needs to be returned in line with the Fair Wear and Tear guidelines of the finance company. We can definitely include full maintenance on Contract Hire. The periods of the lease is 2, 3, 4 or 5 years, and at the end of the term we can arrange for your old van to be collected and a new one delivered, we will contact you to arrange another fantastic deal.
