Lead in Vehicles – The Solutions

Numerous problems face the HR Manager, the Accountant & sales managers in relation to the fleet they provide for their staff, and one of the major issues in 2014 is the delay when ordering new vehicles with the majority of manufacturers now looking at a 10-12 week wait on fresh orders.

Replacement Cars

Another reason for the requirement of the lead in replacement vehicle is new employees that have to undergo a 3-6 month probationary period before they become a permanent employee, and at that stage their company can then enter into a three year deal on a lease vehicle. This is why the lead in vehicle is becoming a more popular choice for fleet providers such as Jensen Fleet Solutions and its customers.

Jensen Fleet Solutions hold a fully stocked rental fleet from a small car to a large car. Any corporate customers can hire a car or van for a period form 1 day to 1 year at competitive rates that include the maintenance on the vehicle. The beauty of this is, there are no penalties to hand the car back early. This product is proving to be highly beneficial to customers who need to hand back there previous lease vehicles and are waiting for new cars to come in. The option of flexibility for companies is proving to be a winner every time.

The rental option offers peace of mind to the companies who know that their staff are been looked after and are happily on the road without a major commitment and minimum upfront payments.

At Jensen Fleet Solutions we feel the best way for all us to manage the rental division is to build the contract around our customer, as no two customers’ requirements are the same.

Why You Should Lease Your Next Car

Leasing has many advantages one of the main ones being that you can replace your vehicle with a new one every 2-4 years depending on the contract you sign up too.

One of the main reasons companies lease is that they do not hold any equity in the car, they return the vehicle after 2-4 years and all they have paid is a monthly finance cost over the contract period. There are little or no benefits to holding equity in your car as cars depreciate quickly and so the sell on price is greatly reduced.

When you lease a vehicle or vehicles, your payment is made up of the cost of the vehicle at the start of the lease, less the value of the vehicle at the end of your contract. Mileage allowances will play a big part here as a vehicle that returns after 3 years with 100,000 Kilometres will be worth significantly more than a vehicle return after the same period with 250,000 Kilometres on the meter. The average mileage of company vehicles in Ireland is 60,000 Kilometres per annum.

From a corporate point of view, the main advantages to leasing are:

  • Lower Monthly Payments
  • No Down Payment
  • More Cars More Often
  • Fewer Maintenance Headaches

There is also VAT relief available for companies that lease their vehicles. Since the Finance Act of 2008, the Revenue provides that any accountable persons (i.e. the company) can deduct up to 20% of the VAT incurred in the respect of purchasing and hiring vehicles. Terms & Conditions apply.

For companies who buy new cars every 2 to 3 years leasing will allow them to lower their payments or to drive a more expensive car with a monthly payment similar to a less-expensive car.
