Contract Hire

We recognise that no two businesses are the same, and so we customise our contract hire solutions for individual companies. We can take over ownership, financing, compliance, maintenance and replacement of your vehicles – so you can concentrate on your core business.

The key to our contract hire services is flexibility. If you have an aging fleet that needs replacing, a sudden need to expand or re-structure, want to release the capital tied up in vehicles for investment elsewhere, or just achieve more predictable maintenance costs to aid forecasting, we can help. We can create a contract hire service that meets your needs, and which has the flexibility to adjust as and when the business environment changes. Plus, our independent status allows us to supply vehicles from any manufacturer, to suit your precise operational requirements.

What is contract hire?

Our full service contract hire represents the complete fleet solution and provides you with the exact vehicle for your needs, in your livery and without the burden of ownership or disposal.
The asset is provided to you for a fixed period of time (usually 12 months to eight years) and with a mileage allowance which matches your specific transport requirements.

We take care of the vehicle financing, all servicing and maintenance, administration and documentation.It’s perfect for companies whose business requires them to operate commercial vehicles, but for whom road transport is not a core interest or skill, as it leaves you free to focus on your business.

Operating Benefits

Running a fleet of commercial vehicles is becoming increasingly complex, with continually emerging legislation governing safety, operational factors and environmental impact. We can ensure all your vehicles comply with all legislation and that all documentation is kept up-to-date

Transportation is a critical service for many businesses, and it has to deliver every time, time after time. We make sure that all vehicles follow a strict service schedule and that any unforeseen interruptions, such as tyre failures or breakdowns, are dealt with rapidly and have minimal effect on your commercial operation. And using our knowledge of your business, and our experience of road transport and logistics, we can produce specifications for new vehicles that will improve the efficiency and productivity of your fleet.

  • Reduced and simplified administration
  • Proactive compliance management
  • Optimised fleet availibility
  • Professional advice and support

Financial Benefits

Contract hire allows you to benefit from:

  • Off-balance sheet funding
  • Predictable and stable costs fixed for the contract term
  • Ease of forecasting and budgeting of fleet costs
  • No reduction in your ability to borrow funds for other purposes
  • Vehicle provision can be paid for out of revenue
  • No hidden costs

Balance Benefits

The services that we provide release your company’s resources – people, capital and time – enabling you to allocate them to other areas. It allows you to focus on your core business objects and create a more efficient corporate structure.

  • Preserving the capital intact
  • Increasing purchasing power
  • Focus on core business activity
  • Minimised risks
  • Investment safety
  • Swifter reactions to changes
