This leaves you with a more efficient fleet that is protected from the uncertainties associated with vehicle ownership.
We take care of the administrative burden associated with buying and maintaining your fleet, leaving you free to focus on your core business.
As well as freeing up your capital, Contract Hire eliminates exposure to unpredictable residual values. Our buying power and agreements with suppliers enables us to pass on real savings to you in the form of lower rentals. And with one fixed monthly cost you’ll find it easier to budget accurately and predict your company’s cash flow.
Off Balance Sheet Funding
Under contract hire your vehicles do not appear on your company’s balance sheet as they are owned by us. The removal of capital assets from your balance sheet can enhance your company’s gearing (borrowing) ratio.
Fixed monthly cost
A fixed monthly payment is charged over the life of the contract and the initial up front payment is normally just three month’s rental. Fixed monthly costs for the period of the contract makes budgeting much easier. In turn more accurate budgeting improves your company’s cashflow.
