Contract Hire: Is It Right for You?

Navigating the world of personal contract hire can be a journey filled with emotions. From laughter to tears and moments of sheer frustration, our team at Embrace Leasing has experienced it all. Our primary goal is to meet our client's needs to the best of our ability. We pride ourselves on being the facilitators of dreams, a sentiment echoed by the positive feedback we consistently receive.

Many clients approach us with a vague understanding of how personal contract hire (PCH) works. Some have a clear vision of their requirements, down to the specific alloy wheels they desire. Over time, we've become adept at anticipating the questions that arise when considering a personal lease. For instance, one memorable client challenged us to locate a Fiat with a built-in SAT Nav. To her surprise, we delivered a sleek Black Fiat Abarth, a choice she hadn't initially considered.

A frequently asked question revolves around the ownership and registration of the car. To clarify, the finance company retains ownership. With a personal contract hire, clients rent the vehicle for a predetermined duration, ranging from 24 to 48 months. It's essential to be cautious on the road, as any driving penalties will first be addressed to the finance company, who will subsequently contact the client and may impose administrative charges.

Another common topic is mileage. Clients have the flexibility to decide on an annual mileage limit. While opting for fewer miles can reduce costs, ensuring the chosen limit aligns with one's lifestyle is crucial. Should one exceed the agreed mileage, additional charges per mile will apply.

Lastly, the delivery timeline for the vehicle is a concern for many. While some cars can be delivered within 72 hours if available in stock, others might require more time for various reasons, such as manufacturing delays or transportation needs. We're always available to provide updates and answer any queries through a call, email, or chat on our website.

Understanding the Fine Print

When considering a personal contract hire, it's essential to delve into the specifics. The duration of the lease, the terms of mileage, and the responsibilities associated with vehicle maintenance are just a few aspects that clients need to be aware of.

Mileage Considerations

While the flexibility to choose an annual mileage limit is advantageous, it's crucial to be realistic about one's driving habits. Underestimating can lead to additional charges while overestimating might mean paying for miles you're not using. Regularly reviewing and, if necessary, adjusting your mileage agreement can help avoid unexpected costs.

Delivery Expectations

The anticipation of receiving a new car is always thrilling. However, patience is sometimes required. The car's location, manufacturing status, and transportation logistics can influence delivery times. Embrace Leasing strives to provide accurate delivery timelines and keep our clients informed every step of the way.
