CVSL delivers van at Nottingham care home

We have recently delivered a modified van at the Grand Care Centre in Nottingham. The vehicle will ensure that residents can reach hospital appointments on time and in the familiar comfort of their own transport. The customised van will make a 4-mile daily trip to a local hospital, which before had to be made by private or hospital transportation.

The vehicle has been altered to meet the needs of the residents, including chair lift, removable seats as well as a hand-held rails and a ramp.

Kay Johnson, Client Experience Manager, said:  “The health, wellbeing and happiness of our residents is always our number one priority, as is providing a home-from-home experience in surroundings that provide the highest levels of comfort. We were in desperate need for a vehicle that could take our residents to and from important appointments as well as out and about for recreational activities and we’re delighted with the end result of this minibus. Right from the word go it has been a pleasure to work together with CVSL – the modifications made are perfect for our needs and the end result has exceeded our every expectation.’’

Here at CVSL we are much more than just a leasing company, this is a great example of how we go that extra mile for our clients to meet their expectations.

Important changes in Vehicle Excise Duty from 1 April 2017

The Government is introducing some important changes in Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) starting from 1 April 2017. Vehicle Excise Duty is also known as Road Fund Licence or Road tax.

So what does it all mean?
Vehicles that are registered from 1 April 2017 will be taxed a flat standardised VED of £140 on all vehicles, including cars, armoured cars and motorhomes (except zero emission cars for which the SR will be £0).

Vehicles that are excluded from the new VED are: commercial vehicles (LCVs), motorbikes and heavy goods vehicles.

The first year rates of VED will vary according to the vehicles CO2 emissions level however; a flat SR of £140 tax will apply in all subsequent years unless you drive a zero emission vehicle.

In addition to standardised VED, any cars reaching their second license period – this includes cars with a list price of over £40,000 per year will incur an additional charge of £310 per annum over the next five years.

What happens to cars that are already registered before 1 April 2017?
Current legislation won’t change for cars that are registered before 1 April, so if you are planning to buy or lease a car after this date with a listed price of over £40,000 or more you could save significant money by doing this prior to the date.
