Funder maintenance packages for leasing and contract hire

Frequently asked vehicle leasing questions

We have listed some of the most commonly asked questions about personal and business leasing and contract hire, all of which can be found below. If you can't find the answer you are looking for, then why not get in touch and speak to a member of our sales team on 01332 300 044.

All of the lease vehicles that we source are brand new and supplied through vehicle manufacturers or UK franchised dealerships.

Yes, all our vehicles that are supplied to you will come with full UK manufacturer’s warranty. Each manufacturer sets its own warranty length, so it is advised to speak to a member of our sales team to discuss the warranty details for your chosen vehicle.

An initial payment is typically a payment of 3 regular monthly rentals made payable in advance. Larger initial payments can be made if desired, for example 6 regular payments. This will in turn lower the regular monthly rentals throughout the duration of the contract.

Maintenance is not included in all our lease contracts. If maintenance is included it will be clearly stated on our website. However, if you require maintenance, you can add this on to your lease package for an extra monthly cost. All our maintenance packages include servicing, exhaust, tyres, brakes, battery and labour. For more information, please go to the maintenance section of our website.

Yes, road fund licence (road tax) is included for either 12 months or for the duration of the contract depending upon the type of lease agreement taken out.

If you have taken out a personal or business contract hire agreement, your road fund licence will be provided to you for the duration of the contract by the funder. This is because the funder is the registered keeper of the vehicle.

If you have taken out a contract purchase, personal contract purchase, finance lease, lease purchase, business or personal operating lease, the funder will only provide you with road fund licence for the first 12 months as you are the registered owner of the vehicle.

Yes, every contract lease deal that we source comes with either 12 months or 3 years breakdown recovery, depending upon the manufacturer of your vehicle. If you would like confirmation about roadside assistance, please call 01332 300 044 and speak to a member of our sales team.

All your monthly rentals are collected by direct debit by the finance funder who you have taken your lease agreement out with and not Motion Vehicles.

If you are leasing a vehicle for business purposes and your business is VAT-registered, then you can reclaim 50% of the total payments made. If maintenance is included within your lease agreement, you will also be able to claim back 100% of the maintenance costs.

Any business customers who are not VAT-registered such as sole-traders, will not be able to claim back VAT or maintenance costs.

You can generally recover the VAT on all other business motoring expenses like fleet management or off-street-parking. There are specials rules for reclaiming VAT on road fuel used for business purposes, so it is advised to speak to your accountant for more information.

Once you have chosen a vehicle, contract type, advanced rental and annual mileage, you will receive a written quotation from a member of our sales team. The quotation will detail your chosen parameters and will confirm your monthly rental.

If you are happy with the quotation, you will be asked to fill out a credit proposal form, which will be used to gain credit from the finance company for the vehicle you wish to lease.

Once approved for credit, a vehicle order form will be produced and will need to be signed by yourself and returned to us. This form will confirm your quotation, vehicle details, colour, options and approximate lead time for the vehicle. Following its return, we will send the order form to the dealership involve to either secure your vehicle if in stock or to initiate the factory order.

Finance documents will then be produced by our admin department, sent to you, where you will need to read, sign and sent back to us along with your administration fee payment. From here, you will simply wait for you vehicle to be delivered.
