Business Vehicle Leasing: Should I Include a Maintenance Package?

November 30th, 2021

The cost of maintenance is definitely something you should factor in if you are considering business vehicle leasing. How much you pay to maintain your vehicle is a big factor when considering the whole life van lease cost.

Taking out a maintenance contract to support your lease is a great way to avoid unexpected servicing and repair costs. A maintenance package can also provide peace of mind, with features like service scheduling ensuring you never forget to arrange routine services.

In order to benefit our customers, we at Global Vans have partnered with a panel of premium funders who can offer you a vehicle maintenance package (Also referred to as Service Plus), alongside your finance option.

What are the Benefits of a Maintenance Package?

Fixed Monthly Cost: Letting you spread the cost of maintenance across the term of your business vehicle leasing deal.

Approved Garages: Repairs are carried out by accredited garages who comply with the high standards set out by the manufacturer and van leasing company.

VAT: If you are VAT registered, the cost of your maintenance contract is 100% VAT reclaimable.

What is covered?

Although packages can vary across providers, most maintenance packages include:

  • MOT (if vehicle lease is longer than 3 years)
  • Service Scheduling
  • Routine Servicing and Maintenance
  • Tyre Replacement/Repair
  •  Mechanical Repairs for Wear and Tear

What isn’t covered?

  • Accidental damage/vandalism
  • Repairs/replacements due to driver negligence (lack of routine services)
  • Broken, stolen or missing items (hub caps/aerials)
  • Tyre replacements due to theft/negligence/vandalism

Business vehicle leasing is a great way to keep an eye on your outgoings. A maintenance package can make this even easier. By ensuring that all routine servicing and repairs are scheduled, you ensure you’re complying with the specifics of your lease agreement. You’re covered for any unexpected repair or servicing costs within the agreement. You can claim back your VAT. Best of all, you can stay on the road.
