Frequently asked questions

1. What is a lease?

There are different types but CLVR specialise in just two- both are very like long term car rental.

With CONTRACT HIRE you pay an initial payment, then monthly rentals for an agreed term whilst you use the car, and finally you ‘hand the car back’. The rental we quote you covers the car, delivery & collection, and Road Tax for the full lease term. You also have the option to pay a monthly fee to cover service and maintenance costs.

OPERATING LEASE is just the same save that only the initial Road Tax is included in the monthly rental.

2. Why Lease at All?

a) It can save you £000’s- we source thousands of cars so have the buying power and knowledge to get the biggest vehicle discounts and the cheapest lease rates- which we can then pass-on to you.

b) It is quicker, simpler & easier– no searching for and haggling to get the best discount on your new car, no trying to ‘work-out’ complicated finance deals, no worry about what is a good part-exchange price on the vehicle when its time to sell.

c) It is tax efficient!- we are not accountants and we don’t give detailed tax advice. But the fact is many companies cut their VAT & Corporation Tax bill through leasing their cars- ask your accountant to explain the detail.

10. Why not just go to one of the major dealer groups?

Why not indeed! – in fact we encourage it. Check out their cars, compare their prices then go with whoever gives you the best deal- 9 times out of 10 you’ll find that will be us.

11. Can I use my local dealership to supply the vehicle?

Not unless they can supply on the same heavily discounted terms as our selected panel of dealers- its possible but in practice rarely happens.

In most cases Yes – we can quote you for the additional monthly fee payable to cover routine servicing, replacement tyres and fair wear and tear maintenance costs.

13. Where would I get the vehicle serviced?

At your local franchised dealer or independent garage accredited to service up to manufacturer standards.

14. Is car insurance included in the lease?

No- you need to arrange comprehensive insurance for the vehicle- most of our customers just use one of the on-line price comparison sites to get the best deal.

15. Who do I pay and when?

We set–up the lease for you BUT all you pay us is a small Admin. Fee (in your quote) just before delivery- the Initial and monthly rentals are almost always paid straight to the lease co. by direct debit (initial rental on delivery and remaining rentals monthly thereafter).

16. What happens if I receive a traffic offence or parking ticket?

You still have to pay these!. Please refer to your lease agreement terms & conditions for specific details.

Back to top

17. What happens if my vehicle gets damaged?

We expect normal wear and tear such as a few stone chips. However significant impact damage will have to be repaired or you will need to pay an end of contract charge. Our funders adhere to the BVRLA ‘fair practice’ guidelines in respect of end of contract damage charges.

Back to top

18. Can I keep the car at the end of the contract?

You have options to request a purchase price for the vehicle or can sometimes extend the contract for a further period;- in practice though most people just hand the car back and pick-up a brand new shinny replacement car!.
