Personal Contract Hire (PCH)

What is Personal Contract Hire (PCH)?

A Personal Contract Hire agreement is a long term arrangement which allows a person to lease a car or a van. The standard time span for one of these contracts is anywhere between 2 to 5 years

Its no wonder why more and more people are choosing to lease their vehicle, rather than buying their cars outright! It's a much more cost effective way of owning a new vehicle and keeping the running costs down.

Some essentials you need to know about leasing are here:
• Fixed Monthly costs - At the start of the contract, a fixed monthly cost will be agreed for between 2 to 5 years
• Mileage Limit - A mileage limit will be agreed at the start of the contract, but don't worry if you think you'll go over, you can always add on additional mileage with us, throughout your contract
• There is no balloon payment at the end of the contract, you simply hand your vehicle back at the end
