Contract Hire

A simple and cost effective way to fund any number of vehicles.

Contract Hire is a simple and effective way to fund any number of vans.  Contracts range from 24 to 60 months and are tailored to your requirements.

With small initial rentals and fixed monthly costs, Contract Hire makes budgeting more simple.  Also, you have no risk of residual values at the end as you hand the van back.  Additionally, maintenance and recovery can be included in the monthly rental.  In turn, this eliminates most of the stress and financial risks of van ownership.

We know there may be downsides to Contract Hire being your best finance route.  More information is available online below, and we are on hand to help.  Get in touch to discuss your requirements and our van finance deals.
