    What is a vehicle lease?

    A vehicle lease is an agreement with a specialist finance company that allows a business to obtain the benefits of using a vehicle for a fixed period of time and an agreed number of kilometres, for a monthly payment.

    What are the benefits of an operating lease?

    With no major upfront costs and a single monthly payment, you’ll know what you’re spending each month. So you get the vehicles you need and keep your cashflow in check. Plus, we take care of all the vehicle admin for you, so you don’t need to spend time sorting out fuel receipts, tolls notices and registration. And it’s not just for big businesses either. Leasing can suit businesses of all sizes with the need for only 1 vehicle or 5,000.

    What is included in a Fully Maintained Operating lease?

    • Scheduled servicing and maintenance
    • Replacement tyres
    • 24/7 roadside and breakdown assistance

    What happens at the end of a lease?

    You have 2 options available to you:

    1. Upgrade your current vehicle
    Discuss with your Account Manager six months out from the end of your current lease, what replacement options are available. Your Account Manager will be able to provide you with an update on all the latest makes and models and the most cost effective lease options to meet your needs.

    2. Extend your current lease If you would like to continue driving your existing vehicle, you may be able to extend your lease, based on the lease term to date, vehicle's age and odometer usage. Simply call your Account Manager and request a quote based on the term of the extension available and the additional vehicle usage required.

    Where do I return my vehicle at the end of lease?

    All vehicles are to be returned to our independent vehicle assessment partners. Staff will complete an assessment of your vehicle in line with FleetPartners’ Fair, Wear and Tear Guide. A report is then forwarded to FleetPartners together with photographs, and a copy is sent to your company together with a refurbishment cost. Any discrepancies should be discussed with your Account Manager within 48 hours of receipt.
