Top 4 benefits of car leasing?

Do you see a brand-new car down your road? Why not try leasing.

This week we are looking at the benefits of leasing.

First things first: what is it? Vehicle leasing is the use of a motor vehicle for a fixed period of time at an agreed amount of money. Pretty simple stuff, so what are the top 4 benefits…

1. Avoiding unforeseen expenditure.

Leasing a car, you will benefit from avoiding any unforeseen expenditure with a set of monthly payments scheduled throughout the duration of the lease agreement.

In addition to this benefit, you can apply an extra fee to the monthly bill in order to have maintenance and servicing covered. Definitely one more thing off your busy mind!

2. Vehicle depreciation? No worries.

Once the lease period has lapsed (usually two, three or four years), you simply return the car, not having to worry about the value of your vehicle decreasing because the job of selling it falls upon the lease company. Ensuring you’re always driving one of the latest models, no hassles.

3. Low monthly payments.

Monthly payments are often significantly lower than they are for buying a car on finance, meaning you could be driving your dream car WITHOUT the nightmare price hanging over your head.

4. Get the most for your money.

The cost of leasing compared with buying can vary depending on the make, model and version of your chosen vehicle. For example, a Ford Focus Estate 2.0 TDCi 140 Titanium 5dr depreciates quickly, retaining less than 40% of its initial value after three years, so this would definitely be cheaper to lease than buy.

Car leasing or purchasing… there’s only one clear option. Why not take a look at our latest offers? More information regarding vehicle leasing can be found here.

CVSL and AlphaElectric unveil new add on packages

The Discovery and Comfort packages offer a reduced risk approach to implementing electric vehicles into your fleet:
