What is it about cars that makes everyone want to drive the nicest and most expensive models that they can lay their hands on? Perhaps it is because people are aware that the car they drive will influence the opinion that the people they meet will come to about them. This is particularly true for salespersons and executives who have face to face interactions with prospective clientele, they need to ensure that image they convey is the image that is going to land them the job.
When choosing what sort of car to equip yourself or one of your workers with there are a few factors to take into account. Do they need to carry a lot of equipment for presentations or overnight stays? Is the car comfortable enough for long haul journeys? What sort of mileage per gallon could you expect from the car and should you choose a diesel vehicle to further reduce these fuel costs? These are all valid questions you should consider.
Many smart businesses these days realize that buying fleet cars is more trouble than it is worth. Instead, they choose to obtain their fleet vehicles through contract hire lease. This means that they have no worries regarding depreciation or repair bills, and when the time comes to replace the existing fleet with new cars, they don’t have to go through the trouble of selling their existing fleet in order to finance the purchase of new cars.
It is a common misconception that when you lease a vehicle you are limited with regards to the options available to you. a good leasing company will actually provide more options and not less, this is because unlike a traditional dealer who will only be able to provide one make of car, a leasing firm can provide any make and model, you will also be able to specify exactly what extras you would like, and choose the color, engine size, and fuel type.
Leasing is not only available to business customers, in fact, members of the general public are now coming to understand the benefits of leasing just as businesses have done for a while. Perhaps the current economic climate has helped to bolster this trend, but it seems that more and more people are reluctant to burden themselves with a huge debt to buy a car that will, by the time they have finished paying for it, be next to worthless.
