Will kept my details on file and contacted me as soon as a deal became available on a car closest to my specification. After that, the whole process was pain free.
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.
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.

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.
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.
First class service received from David and the Team at First Vehicle Finance. You have made the process of arranging our lease plan so straight forward and easy to understand. Thank you so much for all your help. We are delighted with our new car. Kind Regards Dermot Kavanagh
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.
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.
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.
I first engaged with Chris Fairchild back in 2014 and have found him to be of great assistance, honourable and a thoroughly good person to deal with. My last 2 cars have been via Chris and I am sure many more will follow. It is with great delight I endorse his work and cannot recommend him highly enough.
Most of us have a pretty good idea of the cost of fuel, insurance and road tax. But when it comes to predicting the cost of service, maintenance and repairs, things can get a lot trickier. As you’d expect, all brand new vehicles come with a warranty that covers the failure of any parts which the manufacturer has guaranteed to work correctly for a certain number of years. Unfortunately, these guarantees tend to come with a list of exclusions, the most common of which is anything which could be considered ‘fair wear and tear’. This simple phrase is often the reason servicing costs seem to escalate and the final bill ends up being a lot more than originally quoted. For example, over the next few years, how many tyres will you need to replace, how many wiper blades, batteries or bulbs? Then there’s the cost of all the mandatory servicing routines required to keep your warranty valid. Whilst it might be tempting to put off thoughts of all the costs involved, simply dealing with it as and when necessary, you can be sure that the older the vehicle gets, the more it will cost to service and maintain.
Budgeting is so much easier when you can wrap up all your servicing and maintenance costs into one easy to manage monthly payment. It means you can relax, safe in the knowledge that the amount you need to pay has been fixed for the entire duration of the contract. Our comprehensive maintenance package covers all of the costs involved in scheduled servicing routines, as well as mechanical and electrical repairs or replacements. Of course, we can’t cover anything which requires replacement due to misuse, but if any of the parts covered by your contract fails due to fair wear and tear, or a manufacturing fault, then we’ll get it repaired or replaced at no cost to you. This even includes like for like premium brand tyres.
Every year we carry out over 150,000 service and repairs nationwide. It’s a scale of operation that gives us immense buying power, without sacrificing quality workmanship. As a result, you can benefit from some of the most competitive prices available and the peace of mind that all work is conducted by accredited garages who only ever use fully approved parts. It works like this… When it’s time for a scheduled service, or if any repairs need doing, we’ll arrange for your vehicle to be picked up from your home or work address and deliver it to one of our quality approved garages. And if you need a courtesy car, we’ll get that arranged for you as well. The whole process won’t take long because your package includes preferential booking times and, if the repair is urgent, we’ll make sure it gets prioritised. Either way, we’ll keep you informed every step of the way. Then, once the work’s complete, we’ll get it straight back to you. It really couldn’t be easier.
No matter how well your vehicle is maintained, there’s always the chance of an unexpected parts failure. If this happens to you, you’ll want someone you can rely on to help you get back on the road as quickly possible. So to give you the best possible service and support, our comprehensive Roadside Assistance Plan is delivered by the AA. And by using all their experience and expertise, we’ve been able to achieve the impressive record of fixing 82% of vehicles at the roadside, with an average attendance time of just 45 minutes. We can come to your aid whether you’re at home, on the road in the UK or even if you’re travelling across Europe. We’re available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and if we can’t fix it straight away, we’ll help you and your party reach your original destination.
The Maintenance Plan covers all parts and labour in relation to: •All scheduled servicing and maintenance routines
•All mechanical and electrical repairs or replacements
•Replacement of items failing due to wear and tear, such as:
•Unlimited premium brand tyres via our UK wide chain of fitters and mobile engineers (excluding replacements due to misuse)
