Leasing FAQs

Our quick and handy FAQ answers the most common leasing questions we receive from our customers.

Do I own the car?

No. The finance company owns the vehicle; they will be registered keeper of the vehicle.

How long will delivery take?

Delivery times vary dependant on the manufacturer, the offer and the type of deal your looking to take advantage of. If your speccing a car from factory then delivery can vary significantly, from 12 weeks to 6+ months. Stock offers are tyically available within a few weeks of completing your order.

Initial Rental - What is it?

An initial rental is the first rental payment you will make to the finance company. Some people call it a deposit, but it's not. It's typically taken 1-2 weeks after you've taken delivery of your car. This payment is usually a multple of your monthly rental which is typically 1,3,6,9 or 12x the monthly rental. This then adjusts how much you pay every month. The higher the initial rental the lower your ongoing monthly rental and vice versa.
