Short, Simple, Clear Car Leasing


With Contract Hire for both Business and Personal customers, the amount you pay over the lease term chosen by yourself is the same no matter what payment profile you opt for.

Basically, a payment profile when leasing a car or van is how the payments are structured. Most lease offers allow the customer to choose an initial rental/deposit equal to 3, 6, 9 or even 12 of their monthly payments made up front.

Basically, a payment profile when leasing a car or van is how your payments are structured.

An example of a payment profile that you will come across when leasing a car or van is 3 + 35 which is a popular choice with customers. What this means is that your initial rental/deposit will be equal to 3 of your fixed monthly payments up front followed by 35 monthly payments.

This example is based on a customer who has chosen to lease a brand new car or van on a 36 month (3 year) lease contract. If your monthly fixed amount is £350, you will pay 3 x £350 = £1,050 up front followed by 35 monthly payments of £350.

Generally, the higher the initial rental/deposit you pay up front, the cheaper your monthly rental amount will be and vice versa. However, the total amount you pay for the duration of your chosen lease term remains the same.

How much you pay up front is entirely up to you and comes down to how each individual customer wants to structure their lease.

At Clear Car Leasing, you can lease a brand new car, van or pickup for either 18 months, 24, 36 or 48 months (4 years).

We can tailor the right lease contract for you based on what vehicle you’d like to lease, how long for and the mileage allowance chosen.
