What is Van Leasing?
Van leasing is one of the growing ways to drive a brand new van for a specific period of time. Van lease deals typically last between 2 and 5 years. Simply put, you choose a new van or pick-up, pay an initial payment and then pay a monthly amount to drive it for a certain time period that you choose. And at the end of the lease period you simply hand it back. Taking a van leasing deal means you get access to all the latest van makes and models that have the newest technology, latest practical features as well as the most efficient engines
Benefits of Van Leasing
Van leasing provides so many benefits, including affordable fixed monthly fees, no risk of vehicle depreciation as well as no selling hassle at the end of the agreement, giving you much greater control over your automotive outgoings. And if you are a business then you can offset the VAT of the lease and you can even claim the lease payments as a business expense. Furthermore, you and your employees are always driving the latest vehicles, both helping the company's brand image whilst removing some of the risks associated with older vehicles at the same

How do I know what van is right for me?
You're likely to have really personalised, individual business needs and our advisors are always on hand to help you make that choice. Do you need a double-cab, or will a single-cab with a three-seat bench suffice? If you're concerned about load space, will an affordable small van like the Vauxhall Combo Cargo, which has a payload up to a whopping 900kg, actually mean you don't need to lease a medium-sized van? If you're thinking about leasing an electric van, then range between charges will be uppermost in your thoughts. The Citroen e-Dispatch, for example, has a great range of up to 205 miles and is built for comfort, but if you're covering hundreds of motorway miles each week, rather than criss-crossing counties, then a traditional diesel-powered van lease might be better suited to your needs.
Do you take Wear and Tear into consideration when leasing a van?
We realise that a van is built to graft, and a van lease will always take into consideration something called 'fair wear and tear', where a vehicle's condition deteriorates over time. What the lease industry considers to be fair wear and tear is actually standard and set out by the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA). And you perhaps won't be surprised to learn that there are different BVRLA guidelines for Light Commercial Vehicles compared with regular cars. For example, there's leeway and flexibility in terms of the 'working surfaces' of the van, ie, surfaces affected by the payload, body floors, tail boards and wheel arches. However, damage caused to the interior door lining, bulkheads and interior wheel arches through neglecting to secure a load properly is not acceptable and will need to be repaired before the end of your lease deal. You can see details of the BVRLA here and our advisors at Drivespeed Leasing are always on hand to explain the 'wear and tear' process, too
Do I need to tax and insure a van I lease?
All our van Contact Hire deals come with the road tax paid. But you'll need to arrange your own insurance, as it's not included as standard with a Drivespeed Leasing deal. The lease customer needs to be the main driver on the insurance policy, though you can add other named drivers to the policy. And it's also your responsibility to ensure you have a fully comprehensive insurance policy.
