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 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 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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
The two common ways of financing a car as a private individual are personal contract hire (PCH) and personal contract purchase (PCP). PCH leasing allows you to drive your new car and change every few years, with relatively low monthly payments and no worries about the car’s resale value. PCP is similar but gives you the option of buying the car in the future. When you lease a car, there are strict rules and restrictions, so make sure you understand how it work.
According to the Finance and Leasing Association - 4 out of 5 people with PCP plans do not choose to buy the car at the end of their contract
If you are part of the statistics of people who will probably want a new car after 2 – 4 years, then leasing a car via PCH (Personal Contract Hire) - might work out cheaper for you. However, if you can’t afford the PCH monthly payments and have to cancel the agreement, you may have to pay off the leasing costs in full, which would end up costing you more.While PCP can be used as a way of leasing a car, it also gives you the opportunity to buy the car and become its legal owner at the end of the leasing contract.
PCH does not.To do this, you have to pay a ‘balloon payment’ – also known as the Guaranteed Future Value (GFV) – at the end of the contract. This is in addition to your deposit and monthly payments and will be a few thousand pounds. The problem with balloon payments is that the balloon payment could be more than what the car is worth in some cases.With PCP (Personal contract purchase) the total amount you repay in monthly instalments is based on an estimate of how much the car will lose in value though depreciation between the start and end of the contract.If at the end of the contract you don’t want to buy the car, you simply hand it back. As long as the car is in good condition and hasn’t exceeded the agreed mileage, you won’t have to pay any more money [Dehire damage & excess mileage charges may apply].
With both PCH and PCP the lender can repossess the car without a court order. But with PCP, once you have paid at least a third of the total amount payable, they can’t repossess it without a court order. Once you have paid at least half the total amount payable under the agreement, you also have the option to "voluntarily terminate" the agreement and hand the car back to the finance company.
