Business Contract Hire

Business Contract hire is perfect for businesses that would like a brand-new vehicle but don’t want to own it. It is a long-term agreement which lasts between 2-4 years and can be tailored to your requirements. You can select the length of the term, mileage and initial deposit, which help lower the monthly rentals.

It is important to bear in mind that when using contract hire, if you exceed the annual mileage then you could see additional charges at the end of the agreement. So, make sure that when agreeing contract, you choose a reasonable mileage limit so that you avoid any charges later.

Once you have completed the agreed contract then you will hand the van or pickup truck back.
