FAQs About the Vans
Which vans can I lease?
Specialising in leading makes, such as Ford, Renault, Toyota, Vauxhall, Volkswagen, Mercedes and Land Rover, we have a vast range of vans for you to choose from. Whether you are looking for 4x4s, pick-up vehicles, drop side pick-up vans, curtain side vans, crew cab vans, tippers or Luton vans, we have something suited to every requirement.
Will my van come fitted with ply lining?
It is mandatory for our leased vans to have ply lining fitted in order to better protect the van and help you avoid any unexpected damage charges. This feature is included in the main price, so you do not have to worry about any additional costs for this feature.
Can I modify my lease van?
If you are looking for a van with specific features, like a tow bar, this should be requested prior to purchase. If you decide that you would like modifications to be made during the leasing period, this may be permitted as long as the changes are small and reversible. If you wish to add company decals to the vehicle, which can be removed before you return the van, this will be allowed.
Essentially, modifications are permitted, provided that they do not damage the van and it can be returned to its original state. Any changes you make will be at your own risk, and before doing so, we strongly recommend you speak to one of our van leasing experts.
FAQs About the Vans

Will I be able to take the lease van outside of the UK?
To be able to take your lease van abroad, you will need to have the authorisation of your finance provider. You should contact your provider before arranging a trip in your van to make sure they will permit this and that you are aware of any restrictions.
If they are happy for you to take the van out of the country, you will need to order a VE103B form. This contains important vehicle and driver information and confirms that you are authorised to take the lease van abroad.
Will I be able to change my mileage cap during the lease period?
Some funders will let you alter the mileage allowance set at the beginning of the agreement, provided that you have at least six months left on your contract. Although, please be aware that you may be charged for doing this, so it is always recommended that you estimate the mileage you will cover with care when choosing a limit at the start of the contract.
FAQs About Additional Vehicle Costs

Tax will be provided for the first 12 months of your contract; however, after this point, the responsibility for taxing the van will be yours.

How much will I need to pay if I exceed the agreed mileage?
You will need to think carefully about how many miles you are likely to travel in the van, so that you can choose an appropriate cap. If you exceed the mileage allowance agreed at the start of a contract, you will be charged in pence for every additional mile over the limit you cover.
