One of our most frequently asked questions is “Should I take out contract hire with maintenance?”.
Many individuals and businesses do not consider maintenance when they are taking out a leased vehicle – why would they need it, after all?
New cars are under warranty, aren’t they?
Well yes, they are. But there are still other running costs associated with any vehicle, and it makes sense to consider a good value maintenance package as you can fix the costs of your motoring for the term of your lease.
In addition, the cost of your maintenance is spread out, meaning that any unforeseen problems don’t result in an unexpected bill.
What does a leasing maintenance agreement cover?
A Full Maintenance agreement covers servicing and maintenance costs, including replacement parts, road tax for the term of your lease, replacement tyres (fair wear and tear) and an MOT certificate if required.
Will I save money by taking out a lease with maintenance?
Because Rosedale Leasing is part of the Lookers family, our buying power and relationships with nationwide companies means that we can offer highly competitive maintenance contracts – it is unlikely that any individual or even fleet manager would be able to negotiate the same terms.
So, by taking out a maintenance contract, you have effectively already negotiated highly favourable labour rates and terms on tyres, parts, service items and materials.
Maintenance contracts are also often competitively priced because funders like vehicles to come back for resale at the end of a lease term with a full and complete service history. Well looked-after vehicles are more likely to make them a profit.
Could a leasing maintenance save my business money?
All of your vehicle maintenance schedule will be arranged by professional fleet controllers, ensuring that manufacturer recalls are dealt with if they arise. Service updates will also be issued on your behalf – for businesses, this is crucial for keeping vehicles on the road and minimising down-time.
For fleet managers, paperwork and vehicle data like mileage and repair history will be controlled and analysed by a fleet controller, allowing for easy management of company vehicles. Company vehicles will always be maintained to manufacturers’ standards and repairs will be carried out in a hassle-free way, saving you time and money.
