Contract hire is the most popular option for businesses such as limited companies, partnerships or sole traders. There are several commercial benefits in using this method of acquiring new vehicles. Not least fully budgeted motoring costs; car leasing enables a company to accurately calculate their motoring costs over any given period and not having to worry about residual values.
Companies that switch from owning their vehicles to contract hire are generally surprised at the amount of staff time that is freed up; owning a fleet of vehicles can be very time consuming, whereas car leasing is very straightforward and requires very little input from the company’s own staff.
Not all contract hire companies are the same. If you see a vehicle advertised on this site it is because we guarantee that it is available at the price advertised.

There is no right or wrong way to acquire company vehicles, although nowadays companies, even cash rich companies, prefer the simplicity of car leasing; being able to order their new lease car and just hand the previous car back at the end of the term and forget about it.
Over the past ten years the balance has gradually swung away from hire purchase towards contract hire. A major factor is that the monthly outgoings are generally much lower when leasing a car, compared to hire purchase.
