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
Helpful and friendly team of people. We have been using First Finance for a number of years now and 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.
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.
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

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
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 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.
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!
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.
Truth about leasing. Facts and Fiction of the car leasing industry.
With the new tax laws surrounding new and used cars, it's reassuring to know that lease vehicle contracts include the road fund licence of the vehicle, otherwise known as road tax. On Business Contract Hire and Personal Contract hire contracts, this is included within the contract for the full term of the agreement, meaning one less thing to worry about with your car lease. [N.B. - Only the first 12 months road fund licence is included in Personal Contract Purchase contracts]
At First Vehicle Finance, a common-sense approach to wear and tear is undertaken. This means our leasing providers won't penalise you on small imperfections that will more than likely be common place on a car being returned after a number of years.
The below points are classed as general wear and tear and are acceptable on returning a vehicle:
*Scratches up to 25mm
*Small areas of chipping i.e. the leading edge of the bonnet/front of car
*Small dents - up to 10mm (no more than 2 per body panel and paint surface is not broken)
*All tyres to be above the UK legal limit (1.6mm) and comply with manufacturer specifications
*Scuffs equalling 50mm on each wheel - with no damage to the sidewalls or tread
Conditions which are not acceptable include:
*Car doesn't meet MOT standard
*Excessive wear to brakes - grooved discs/worn out pads
*Insufficient engine lubrication such as low oil, or insufficient fluids causing damage to engine or workings
*Improper use of transmission - clutch slipping, gearbox whine etc.
*Cracks, holes or chips in windscreen
*Broken or missing mirror glass
*Car dirty inside and out - car should be returned in a clean and free from interior belongings/rubbish
*Scratches and dents bigger than stated as acceptable under fair wear & tear.
If you take into consideration the fair wear and tear terms, as mentioned above, you should occur no additional charges when returning the car at the end of your Leasing agreement. [N.B. - excess mileage charges will apply if you exceed the contracted mileage]
Your circumstances can change. There are occasions where early termination is necessary- however, it is likely there will be a fee incurred for early termination of your contract [approx 50% of all outstanding rentals on Contract Hire agreements]. Always check before taking out a lease contract through First Vehicle Finance so that you fully understand what happens if you have to end the contract early. Our sales executives at First Vehicle Finance would be happy to advise you on how early termination works.
If you're buying a car, either new or used, you will have to take into account the cost of a number of factors, which can include:
*Vehicle depreciation - pretty substantial when buying a brand-new car
*Repair costs - can cost thousands on older used cars
*MOTs and servicing is more likely to cost more on older vehicles, due to parts becoming old and less reliable *Associating costs when the time comes to sell your car - advertising, your time, hassle etc
However if you Lease You Will Save!
You will get :
*Use of a brand-new car
*Latest models and technology
*Less likely to have mechanical breakdowns, compared with and older vehicle
*No need to MOT in some cases, reduced MOT failure risk due to newer car
*No need to worry about selling and the associated hassle, time etc.
*Leasing is often less expensive than buying a brand-new car
*Get to drive cars you thought were financially out of reach
*Ideal for people only needing a car for a certain time period - job, age, situation
We hope this helps easy your mind and dispels some leasing myths. However if you are stuck or need help – contact us and we will advise you through your questions.
