There are plenty of advantages to business contract hire, but like most financial agreements there are some disadvantages to look out for:

Disadvantages of Business Car Leasing:

  • Early termination can be expensive if required to do so. Normally 50% of the remaining contract is expected as the charge.
  • If you do more miles than stated in your contract you will be charged excess mileage for each mile over that stated in your contract, normally billed as pence per over mile.
  • You must look after the vehicle and return it in a well-maintained condition otherwise you will be charged for any damage over and above that stated in the 'Fair Wear and Tear Guide' from the BVRLA.
  • You must have fully comprehensive vehicle insurance.
  • You will never own the vehicle as there is not always an option to buy the vehicle at the end of the lease contract.
