The car & van leasing process

1 Leasing Quotation Once you have chosen the car or van you would like to lease, request a quote via the website or give us a call and will we provide you with an official quote for your vehicle via our online system.

2 Application If you are happy with the quote that we have provided and you want to progress to the next stage just click apply on our online system to complete our short application form. Once we receive the form back from you will we pass it onto the underwriting team who will run a standard credit check. This usually takes between 2-5 hours before we receive a response.

3 Credit Approval At this point the relevant credit check has been passed and you will have been approved for your chosen lease.

4 Leasing Order At this stage we will confirm an estimated delivery date for your chosen colour and specification whether it's a vehicle that's in stock or a factory order. The order form will again be placed onto our online system for you to review at your own pace. Once you are happy you can submit it back to us which then gives us authorisation to secure your chosen vehicle.

5 Documentation At some point before delivery we will post you the official documentation for your new vehicle. These documents will need to be signed and returned to us before delivery can take place.

6 Vehicle Delivery At last, a date and delivery address will be confirmed with you and your brand new vehicle will be delivered!
