I had dealt with First Vehicle Finance before and on both occasions I have found the service to be excellent. They listen to the requirements and deliver.
I have used First Vehicle Finance a few times now, I would never go anywhere else. They are extremely professional, understand customer needs and very competitive in price. David has been fantastic as always and always follows up on after sales care. I would highly recommend them.
David - a quick note to thank you for sorting out the X3.
The car arrived at 9:10 this morning, and Bernard Rooney followed up with a call to see if everything was ok.
I did not expect this level of service as we had not bought from you before, and I'm delighted.
Thanks for all your help over the months on sorting out the finance and spec on my X3 and June and John's X1.
Many companies spout about excellent customer service but few deliver like your company has.
Thanks again, Giles
I would like to thank Chris Fairchild and Juliet Whitmore for their efficient and friendly service. Their experience and care showed, I now drive the car I wanted, within the budget I had in mind and am glad to say the whole process was painless. Many thanks and all the best! Will definitely recommend.
First Vehicle Finance Ltd and David Linsdell (our Account Manager) have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. We needed a new pool car for our business and selected a Smart car. We received 3 quotes from lease hire companies (2 were on our network preferred supplier list) and First Vehicle had the best quote; significantly cheaper monthly costs, more choice of model and the best delivery date. The whole process has been efficient and extremely professional and we have been very impressed with the personal attention to detail displayed by David and First Vehicle. I would sincerely recommend them as the Vehicle Lease company of choice, and have urged our franchise network to adopt them as a preferred supplier.

My truck back has now had the top installed. I can honestly say it's now my favourite car I've owned (over my RS5)
And I can't thank you enough for your hard and consistent service you've offered me. Please don't change your ways. You're a great company to deal with. Hats off to Will for battling hard for my custom. I wasn't an easy client.
Will be in touch in the next month for another truck and van

I am a company car user and have 2 cars with First Finance and regularly speak to Richard Mayle and Juliet via email,in the last few weeks I purchased a car for my wife, very happy with the car everything from start to finish happened so easily and efficiently. Fantastic service.
The car arrived today and I just want to say 'thank you' for your work and your support in getting it to me ready for my move on Saturday. You made it very easy for me and gave me confidence throughout that it was all under control.
I really appreciate you doing all of this and wish you a great Easter weekend.
All the very best
Helpful and friendly team of people. We have been using First Finance for a number of years now and would highly recommend them.
I am would just like to say thank you to First Vehicle Finance for organising my new car that arrived this week.
This is now the second car I have had from you and on both occasions, I found Will and Rob to be professional and efficient in the way that they dealt with my order.
I will continue to recommend your service to my friends, family and colleagues in the future.
The most popular option for the business user, contract hire offers fixed and inflation proof vehicle funding with optimum cash flow. Administration is kept to a minimum, company drivers have security and guaranteed mobility and the company receives the benefit of 'off balance sheet' funding.
Tell us the vehicle you want at the annual mileage you require and we will tailor the package to suit your needs. First Vehicle Finance will then acquire the vehicle for you and deliver it to any UK address of your choice.
At the end of the contract the vehicle is collected from you and your commitment ends (try our 'ONE-CALL' scheme).
Contract duration can be from 12 to 60 months on all new vehicles up to a total mileage allowance of 155,000 miles. On Used and nearly new vehicles the term will be determined by the age of the vehicle at the outset.
Ownership of the vehicle remains with the finance company during the contract period. We can offer you a purchase price to buy the car from us as a third party after the contract terminates.
Responsibility for insurance is with you as keeper of the vehicle and this must be fully comprehensive.
The finance company. This is one of the major benefits of Contract Hire. The finance company calculates a residual value at the time of quoting. If at the end of the contract the vehicle is worth less than originally expected, they are responsible for the loss.
The second-hand car market is very unpredictable, so why should companies risk their profits by gambling with an unknown vehicle sale price when they come to sell in two, three or four year's time? Contract Hire companies have dedicated used vehicle disposal departments that are expert at predicting and achieving the very best prices for their vehicles at the end of the contract .
This depends on the contract selected. If a non-maintenance contract is chosen, the customer is responsible for all routine servicing and maintenance costs under the terms of the agreement
Assuming a maintenance package is taken, the customer need never worry about any unexpected servicing or maintenance costs. A replacement bulb, a new tyre or a blown clutch is only a free phone call away from a quick, no-cost repair. This gives great peace of mind and allows the customer to run their business, rather than worrying about the running of vehicles. Try our 'ONE-CALL' scheme.
A Non-Maintenance Contract means that the customer is responsible for maintaining and servicing the vehicle as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. However, the road fund licences are covered for the full contract period. Let us quote you!!
A Full-Maintenance Contract is where the supplier is responsible for maintaining and servicing the vehicle and includes all costs due to fair wear and tear. Additional facilities may be added to a Full-Maintenance contract such as RAC cover and relief vehicle cover. Let us quote you!!
Contract Hire guarantees that vehicles will be off the balance sheet.
This has the following advantages:
A deposit of three month's instalments is usually required. In certain circumstances, such as a new-start company, six month's advance payment may be required.
We arrange delivery and collection anywhere in the mainland UK.
We undertake to source your vehicle from our contacts in the industry at full fleet discount, including any specific promotions/support available at the time. If, however, you have a local, preferred supplier, we would be happy to order the vehicle from them on your behalf.
No! Ownership and the subsequent disposal responsibility remains with the finance company. If you do own the vehicle at the end of a contract, it means that you have to go through the inconvenience of disposing of it and arranging finance for your next vehicle.
First Vehicle Finance arrange collection of your old vehicle whilst delivering your new vehicle. Nothing could be easier. If a third party wishes to purchase your old vehicle this can also be arranged
Yes. 100% of the monthly rentals may be offset against Corporation Tax. For vehicles costing over £12,000 a proportion is disallowed. To find exactly how much is allowable a simple calculation must be followed. This calculation is commonly known as the 'Half the difference rule'.
12,000 + 1/2 (Cost-12,000) x 100%
For example, if a vehicle costs £15,000, this is how the calculation works.
12,000 + 1/2 (15,000-12,000) x 100% = 90% 15,000. Firstly take 12,000 from 15,000 (cost) = 3,000 Divide this by 2 (to find half) = 1,500 Add this to 12,000 = 13,500 Divide this by 15,000 (cost) = 0.9 Times this by 100 to find the percent = 90%
Vans are fully tax efficient and so are not subject to this equation.
If you wish to end the contract early a termination charge is payable. Typically, this is 50% of the outstanding monthly rentals payable.
The customer has three options available at the end of the contract period.
Charges are possible for two reasons:
