Contract Hire with Maintenance
Fully maintained contract hire offers you and your company convenience and reassurance, knowing that you will not be faced with unexpected bills, and enabling you to budget company car maintenance costs with confidence and total control.
Our aim is to find the right solution from our wide range of products and services and recommend that you compare both contract hire without maintenance and contract hire with full maintenance prior to signing. Contract hire agreements that include maintenance are constructed to cover all your motoring costs excluding fuel and insurance.
Fixed cost motoring could be cheaper and more cost effective than you think. Fully maintained contract hire agreements are not just for fleets; they are also ideal for SMEs and individuals who want to fix their costs.
Contract Hire with Maintenance includes
• The cost of any additional servicing and maintenance (including replacement parts) required to keep the vehicle in good order and serviced to the manufacturer’s recommendations
• Road fund licence for the contract period
• Provide and pay for all tyres that require replacement due to fair wear and tear
• Current MOT certificate (where applicable)
Minimising risk on vehicle maintenance expenditure
Including maintenance provides a cost-effective way against unforeseen maintenance expenditure.
Things like clutch replacement, battery or mechanical failure happen and sometimes they don’t, but if they do it can result in unforeseen costs.
Contract hire providers negotiate favourable labour rates and discounted terms on service items, tyres, parts and materials, based on their fleet size that often run into several thousand or more vehicles.
This buying power results in lower vehicle fleet maintenance costs, with the savings reflected in the contract payments.
Effective vehicle maintenance administration.
Effective vehicle maintenance administration
Contract hire providers have professional fleet controllers that arrange all aspects of your vehicle’s maintenance schedule, deal with manufacturer recalls and service updates on your behalf, minimising off-road time and keeping you on the road.
Fleet controllers also control and log all paperwork and analyse vehicle data such as mileage and repair history. This data provides an invaluable source of information that can be provided for the purpose of providing effective vehicle management and control, saving you time in vehicle administration whilst at the same time knowing that your vehicles will be maintained to manufacturer standards and quality repairs carried out without fuss.
How Contract Hire with Maintenance can save you money
Contract hire providers are more likely to achieve a profit on end of contract sale if the vehicle is complete with full service history, making maintained contracts a more attractive proposition than those of non-maintained contracts.
To encourage maintained contact business, contract hire providers often offer incentives such as reduced cost of funding or an increase in predicted future residual value of the car; both of these factors effectively lower the cost of the rental making a fully maintained contract more competitive.
Always compare both contract hire with and without maintenance, as the saving may surprise you.
