Contract Hire

Contract Hire For Any Size of Business.

Regardless of whether you’re a sole trader searching for a van, truck or even car to grow your business or an established company needing a ‘can do’ minded vehicle provider to help manage your fleet, we can help.
We’re ready to offer Contract Hire on many brands of vehicle with an unrivaled choice of vehicles to meet the unique needs of your business.

What is Contract Hire?
Business Contract Hire is a practical and sensible route for companies to enlist vehicles for a set period and pay with settled regularly scheduled payments. When you take out a Contract Hire you’ll never own the vehicle and when the term of the agreement is finished, you’ll hand the vehicle back. At that point you can choose to hire a new vehicle or simply walk away!

What length is a Business Contract Hire?

We give set term contracts from six to 60 months.

How would I pay for a Business Contract Hire?

You’ll have to pay a deposit in advance, typically proportionate to three regularly scheduled installments. At that point you then pay month to month until your agreement closes.


What’s incorporated into a Contract Hire?

All our Contract Hires incorporate tires, upkeep, road tax and MOTs. A committed Account Handler will deal with your vehicles upkeep schedule and record. We utilize the very best vehicle technicians whenever required to ensure your vehicle is in the most ideal condition for work each day.

We have a UK wide supplier network; but, we are more than happy to support nearby Cheshire based businesses and are happy to utilize a provider of your choosing where required.
