Took delivery of the car yesterday - I love it.
I wanted to thank you for everything that you did. The process was very smooth and as always communication was excellent. I should also mention Juliet who was extremely helpful and responsive.
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.
I Received my Volvo V40 R Design today and could not be happier. The car has more than met my expectations, but just as important the service from you has been impeccable throughout. From the initial very competitive quote, all the way through to the delivery today was a pleasure that I could not fault in any way. Keep up the exceptional work, Thanks a lot.
Car arrived before time and is completely as expected, with no disappointments.
Thanks for your help, which in the time frame, went beyond exemplary. The service given was first class and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
First Vehicle Finance Ltd and Richard couldn't have been more helpful. My wife had a very specific car in mind and a set monthly budget and Richard took a great deal of time in helping to explain all of the finance options, helping every step of the way in making sure we got our perfect car and under budget! The process was made very easy and the service was fantastic to the extent that I am now looking to finance a car for myself with First Vehicle! Highly recommend!
Had a great experience with First Vehicle Finance. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted in terms of payment options, all I knew was that I wanted a new car! This was my first experience in financing a car, so obviously a bit apprehensive about what I was getting myself into. But Will was really helpful in explaining the different finance options they have to offer. I learned of the different payment profiles, monthly instalments, leasing contracts, all down to the nitty gritty. After this, I decided to go with FVF. The process was really easy, straightforward, and if I had question, they were more than happy to help, and quickly. Then I learned they deliver your car free of charge! Which saved me arranging a ride to the garage to collect :) All in all, great service and would recommend to family and friends.
FVF have been suppyling our vehicles for the last 9 years. They make everything seem so easy and straight forward. They even brought a car to us to test drive when all the local dealers did not have the car we were looking for. The team are so helpful and friendly.
I recommended FVF to a family member and a neighbour from which both have said how pleased they were with the service they received. If you are looking for a small hatchback or a prestige car the service is all the same which is first class. We look forward to dealing with Chris and the team for many years to come.
Good Morning Chris
Just reporting back on my new company car I recieved from you yesterday. Very impressed on the model and spec of the car,what is also incredible is that its a bigger engine than my previouse model yet it has a lower emission output.This is good from a tax point but also better for the enviroment.The MPG is also better so that will result in operating cost for the company being lower. I have to say that when my old car was collected it was a bit sad as it had given me 3 years of trouble free motoring.I had not even had to change one single light bulb on the car during that time.Look forward to the next three years of motoring with my new car. Thanks again for all the help with giving me and my colleques all the P11D information for us to send to the HMRC office regarding personal taxation liability and the delivery was right on the day specified.
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.
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.
