A. No - with a personal car hire agreement (PCH) and Business car hire agreement (BCH) then the car needs to be returned at the end of the lease agreement. As a default there is no option to purchase the vehicle.
A. We have written a specific article on this question you can find that here
A. If the car has been in an accident then it is the same as any other situation as you would need to get in touch with your insurance. The insurance is the driver's responsibility.
If you are unfortunate enough to have your vehicle stolen or written off, there may be a shortfall between the value of the vehicle and the outstanding finance amount. In these circumstances, optional GAP insurance would cover the difference and would allow you to replace the vehicle without the burden of any shortfall.
A. We offer a maintenance package that covers all of the above. In the event of an MOT, the car is new and doesn't need one!
Once you have taken delivery of your vehicle, our optional maintenance package takes the worry out of vehicle ownership. Maintenance is carried out at the main dealer of your choice leaving you in control of where and when. Most main dealers will offer a courtesy vehicle whilst yours is being serviced or repaired, but if you can't be without a vehicle you can arrange a relief vehicle as an optional part of the contract, available after 24, 36, or 48 hours.
A. In the unlikely event that your vehicle is having problems and needs repairs then your first port of call is to speak with your vehicle's manufacturer's local dealership to get it repaired or the finance company that owns the car. They will either repair the problems under warranty or explain how it can be done outside of warranty if that's the case. Each manufacturer has its own policies in regards to repairs on recurring problems. Unfortunately, All Car Leasing is unable to help in this situation as we don't own the car and we have no authority to be able to repair it on your behalf.
If you are unhappy with your dealership/manufacturer's stance on the matter we recommend speaking to your finance company ensuring you keep an accurate record of all dealings in relation to the matter.
A. Most new vehicles have breakdown cover as part of the manufacturer's warranty. If it doesn't we can arrange optional cover through the AA, for additional peace of mind.
A. If you aren't sure what your credit status is then it would be best to check our leasing credit page as it has more in-depth information about having bad credit or general credit information.
As a default, we can not help individuals or businesses with bad credit.
A. Details can be found on the required documents page
A. Yes! If you are a parent or a partner etc and you would like others to be able to drive this is fine as long as the leaseholder is the main driver on the insurance. Provided they are fully insured there won't be a problem. However, we are not able to lease if the car will be used as a taxi, hired out, etc.
A. It is the leaseholder's responsibility to arrange collection at the end of the contract with the finance company or dealership. All Car Leasing does not own the vehicle or have a collections department and unable to provide this service. Please view your contract with the finance company for specific details pertaining to your arrangement. We recommend arranging a suitable collection date at least a month before the end of the contract.

A. As a finance provider, we need to lend responsibly so we only lease to people or organisations that can show proof of income. If you can show us that you have a regular and permanent cash flow we can help, unfortunately, we would not be able to lease to individuals on JSA, benefits, or students.

Delivery is free of charge to anywhere within the mainland UK however deliveries to Northern Ireland we can arrange for the car to be transferred to an Irish port but this will incur additional charges.
