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
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.
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.
We needed a new family car quickly! Knowing we would need a new one in 2 years time we decided to lease one! First Vehicle finance was recommended to us by a friend and the recommendation was spot on! What amazing service and we got our new Audi Q5 at an even higher spec than we expected! Awesome !
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.
Hi Will I am currently out the country working, I have been in regular contact with my wife she told me that the transfer of the vehicles went down without a hitch, unfortunately I was in Iraq when this all happened so as yet I have not seen the car in the flesh, but I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help from start to finish of the process, I had a good experience the first time I dealt with you and have had another flawless experience this time and I look forward to dealing with you again in another 3 years thanks agaim Will.
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.
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 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.
MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE WHEN LEASING A CAR
When it’s time for a new vehicle, you’ve many options: You can buy new, buy used or lease. Leasing a car has some definite pros. It offers you the chance to drive the latest models for less than the cost of buying the car outright. You also get to drive a new car every few years, and you won’t have to worry about any major repairs.But that’s if you do everything right. Do things wrong and the benefits of leasing a car can fade faster.
NOT NEGOTIATING THE PRICE
When leasing a car, people often forget to negotiate the cost of the vehicle, also called the capitalized cost. Instead, they focus on reducing monthly payments or lease terms. That is a mistake that can cost you hundreds of pounds. Some leases subsidized by the manufacturer have specific terms, but most leases are completely negotiable. Just as you would if you were buying a car, research to determine a fair price for the car. Then, use your research as a platform for negotiating with dealerships.
UNDERESTIMATING THE AMOUNT OF MILES, YOU’LL DRIVE
Most leases will have a per-year mileage cap of 12,000 miles, which can tick by pretty quickly. Some leases have a cap of 15,000 miles, which will result in slightly higher monthly payments or upfront costs. But if you think you may exceed the cap in your car lease, you probably will, and paying for the miles up front will be less expensive than paying for them when you turn the car in.
NOT MAINTAINING YOUR LEASED CAR
You might be tempted to skip routine maintenance and neglect minor dents and dings because you plan to walk away from your leased car at the end of your term. But that can be a big mistake. It is important to maintain your car to factory specs because in the lease language, there is a clause that goes along with excess mileage and refers to excess wear and tear. Usually, there is a post-lease inspection. Lessors will look at the excess wear and tear at lease end and will charge you for any damage that does not qualify as fair wear and tear. It strongly advised keeping your car maintained and fixing even small scratches and dings as a way to protect yourself against potential charges when you turn your car in.
Most leases are closed-end, meaning you simply turn the vehicle in at the end of the lease. Sometimes you've the option to buy the car for the predetermined residual value. This could be a good deal if you’ve put low miles and low wear and tear on the car.But if your lease is open-end, be sure it will work for you. It might have lower payments, but you run the risk of owing money if the value of the car is determined to be below the residual value at the end of the lease. Again, pay attention to mileage caps and excess wear and tear fees that may be imposed at lease end. That information is all going to be in the fine print. So get out your magnifying glass and take on a small headache now to avoid an even bigger one later on.
