Frequently asked questions
Flexible vehicle hire can be anything from four weeks through to three years. It is perfect if you are unsure of your business requirements and need the ability to reduce or expand your fleet with short notice.
Long-term hire is usually based on a fixed two or three-year period, with a cheaper rate.
Vehicle hire offers flexibility in both vehicle choice and duration of contract. Long term rentals are typically periods in excess of 27 days and are designed for businesses who need a permanent vehicle to suit their needs. Hiring is an increasingly popular way of utilising a vehicle for business usage.
Owning a van or car can result in heavy value depreciation and unexpected repair costs, avoidable expenses through vehicle hiring as these are typically inclusive of the service. The costs of the initial hire are usually lower than the deposit for a brand-new vehicle, and the ongoing hire costs also tend to be lower across the full hire cycle.
Yes, we can help you with that, whether you are looking for a small selection or a large fleet, we can provide the right number of vans and cars for your business’ needs.
For our business-to-business rental solutions , customers are expected to provide their own fully comprehensive insurance cover, either a fleet or a specific vehicle policy. We can provide insurance cover for you through our specialist division Radius insurance.
In the instance of a registration specific vehicle insurance policy, customers must cite that the vehicle is for business use, supply an accurate estimate of annual mileage and cite that a leasing /rental company is the registered owner of the vehicle.
The general age requirements to hire a vehicle are from the age of 25-75, with a minimum of two years driving licence and a maximum of six penalty points within the last three years. However, car hire suppliers may opt to add an additional daily fee for drivers under 25, commonly known as a “Young Driver Fee”. Most suppliers also require you to be at least 30 years of age to hire a luxury vehicle.
The answer depends on the length of your hire agreement. There’s usually no mileage limit for short-term business vehicle hire, but there can be exceptions based on the vehicle type, location, and length of contract. Contract business van hire, also called leasing, does involve mileage limits as this affects the vehicle’s value after the lease ends.
All our vehicles are costed and supplied based on an agreed annual mileage. If a vehicle is returned early, then mileage is aggregated. This means the mileage covered is calculated annually and cross referenced against the agreed annual mileage. If it exceeds the agreed amount, a pence per mile charge is applied for the excess.
Hiring or leasing a vehicle gives the customer an opportunity to always keep a new operationally and financially efficient fleet. There are no depreciation costs to think about and costs such as service, maintenance, repair, replacement, road fund licence and recovery can be included.
You also have complete flexibility to add, reduce, adapt and change your fleet, particularly in long term flexible hire, where you can always adjust your fleet to meet your business’ changing requirements.
If your hire/lease vehicle has been declared a ‘total loss’ (written off or stolen) you need to let us know as soon as possible. We require written confirmation from your insurance company that the vehicle is a total loss before providing an amount for settlement of the vehicle contract.
The vehicle will remain on hire until such time that it is settled, and payment is received from your insurance company. This includes any excess charges that need to be paid by the customer. Any replacement vehicle supplied will also be chargeable in all cases.
Yes, as part of the business account application process, you will be asked to submit some information. This is just for us to assess your suitability and affordability for the solutions you need.
We won’t base any decision solely on your credit score. We’ll also consider other factors such as your ability to make regular payments on time and any other debts you may have and in the instance of an existing customer, we may well look at your historic trading relationship with us.
At the end of your hire/lease with us your vehicle will be checked in and you will be given the opportunity to inspect the vehicle and confirm its return condition. This will be recorded electronically, and we will note any additional items of damage that differ from when the vehicle was originally supplied.
We operate in line with BVRLA fair wear and tear standards, so we will only apply charges we feel are necessary. A service level agreement is provided in all cases, and this clearly outlines our approach in respect of additional charges and our approach to in life and end of life repairs.
