Simple answers to your most popular questions
Leasing a new car from Car Leasing Specialists is a fast, simple and straightforward process but we know you may have a few questions you’d like answered before you proceed. Below are answers to the questions our customers ask most frequently:
How does Car Leasing Specialists work?
Car Leasing Specialists is a website designed to let you easily search and identify your next car from our database of over 1000 vehicles. Once you've identified your car we let you quickly calculate a customised car-leasing quote based on your exact requirements. You can then choose to print or save the quote, apply online, customize the quote further or keep browsing and get quotes for further vehicles.
Can I choose any colour of car?
Yes, you can choose any colour available in the range of car you choose. One thing to bear in mind though is that the more flexible you are with colour, the quicker the delivery of your new car will be. Choosing a popular colour like white, which is usually in stock, will take less time than if you order a car that is a specific, less popular, colour.
Can I add optional extras onto my new car?
We can supply and fit a range of extra items to your new car. If you have specialist items that you want to fit yourself feel free to fit these at your own cost
Can I brand my new car?
Absolutely ? what could be a better advert for your business than a great new car with your brand on it! All we ask is that if you choose to return the car to us then please remove all the lettering and decals before the lease period ends.
When will my new car be delivered?
We provide free-of-charge delivery of your new car to any UK mainland address and aim to do so within 7 - 10 working days. If you choose a model that isn't readily available and can't wait we will endeavour to recommend another suitable car.
Will my new car be covered by the manufacturers warranty?
Yes, all our vehicles come with the full UK manufacturers warranty.
Will my new car be maintained?
It can be if you want - we offer a fixed cost maintenance plan but don't insist that you include this. All of our vehicles are brand new and come with a full manufacturers warranty. Service intervals on new commercial vehicles have become far less frequent than they used to be. Doing an average mileage means you may only need one service a year to keep your car in tip-top condition.
Is road assistance included in the lease?
All of our cars are delivered with the manufacturers roadside assistance package. In most cases this offers 3 years cover but you can opt to extend this beyond to give yourself complete piece of mind should the unforeseen happen.
Is there an annual mileage limit on my new car?
Your car lease agreement will include an annual mileage limit. However, our contracts are extremely flexible and we can arrange to increase or decrease the amount of mileage you require. We are here to help that's why we make sure that our lease deals are the most flexible available on the market.
How long is the lease period?
Our car lease agreements range from 24 to 60 months depending on the vehicle and contract chosen.
Is there an initial deposit when leasing a car?
Yes, but the amount you pay is up to you and depends on the lease option that you go for. While a minimum one payment upfront is available, typically an initial deposit of 3 monthly payments is required. Larger deposits can be given to reduce the monthly payment.
Will the lease agreement include road fund license?
Yes, either for the duration of the contract or 12 months. This will depend the type of lease agreement chosen.
Will the lease agreement include insurance for my car?
No, the car lease agreement does not include insurance. You have to arrange your own fully comprehensive insurance for the vehicle.
