Paying monthly or on a short term basis seems to be preferred by many


A new survey has found that only around half of drivers in the UK actually own their car outright, as more and more motorists turn to leasing as a preferred option, happy to pay on a monthly or short term basis.

According to the survey which involved questioning 2,000 motorists in the UK, around 40% of adults said they don’t think they’ll ever own their own home, with 40% also saying that owning a car outright isn’t important to them and would much prefer to pay month-to-month or on a short term basis.

With Personal Contract Hire (PCH), you can lease a brand new car for a chosen length of time, paying a small initial deposit/rental followed by affordable monthly payments and at the end of your lease term, you simply return the car and start again with a new contract.

Short, Simple, Clear Car Leasing

Leasing in the UK is becoming increasingly popular, as 40% of drivers in the UK say they don’t want to own their car.

Today, it seems that many people are happy to pay for what they want from month to month and don’t necessarily feel the need to own a car outright which is why leasing in the UK has become increasingly popular over the past few years, as it allows you to drive a brand new car without having to deal with depreciation or selling it on when the time comes – all for an affordable monthly amount.

Many of us these days are more than happy to pay for the latest and greatest mobile phone on a monthly basis just to have it in our possession and it’s the same with our cars – you can tailor a lease contract to fit in with your monthly budget and also reap the benefits that come with leasing such as UK road tax for the duration of your chosen lease term, manufacturer warranty, breakdown cover (subject to warranty), free delivery and collection.

All of our cars and vans are brand new, available to lease for either 18 months, 24, 36 or 48 months (4 years) depending on your preference and for extra peace of mind, you can add a maintenance package to your lease contract which covers servicing, tyres and general fair wear & tear cover.
