What is car leasing?
Put simply, car leasing, also known as car rental, is an easy way to get the car you want at generally lower monthly payments than what are usually associated with buying a car on hire purchase or PCP (personal contract purchase).
You simply choose the make and model of a car you like which fits into your budget, choose your contract length (usually between 24 and 60 months), make your monthly payments and then hand your car back at the end of the contract.
Is car leasing right for me?
This all depends on individual circumstances, but if you’re looking for a flexible way to drivea brand-new car with lower monthly repayments and extras such as road tax, breakdown cover, warranty and delivery included, then car leasing could be the perfect option for you.
How do I get a car with Hippo Leasing?
We aim to make it as easy as possible for you to get behind the wheel of your new car.
How long does it take to lease a car?
Your leasing application should only take a day or two to go through, however, if you’ve leased a brand-new car, delivery time depends on the manufacturer. It can take anything up tosix months for a brand-new car to be delivered, as it needs to be put into production. However, if the car of choice has been registered, or we have it in stock then delivery could take just a few days.
Do you carry out a credit search?
Yes. Initially, we’ll carry out a soft credit check to give you an indication of approval. It won’t affect your credit score. If you decide to go ahead, your lender will then carry out their full credit check.
But don’t worry. Even if you have a low credit score, we can still help you secure your next car. We have a large number of bad credit deals available.
Is delivery or road tax included?
If you decide to lease a new car, nationwide delivery and the first year’s road tax are both included. However, if you choose a used vehicle, the cost of delivery and road tax are extra. We’ll calculate the delivery costs depending on your location.
If you’d prefer not to pay for delivery, you can, of course, pick up your car at our state-of-the-art dealership in Blackburn.
Do lease cars come with insurance?
No, our standard lease deals don’t come with insurance included. We understand that leasing a car is a big commitment, and we can offer GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) insurance which is a policy designed to provide financial protection for you should your vehicle be declared a total loss by your insurance company.
How long is the warranty on a leased car?
If you’re leasing a new car you will have a manufacturers warranty from when the car was made (usually 3 years). If you’ve chosen to lease an older vehicle, then we will add a three-month complimentary and comprehensive warranty giving you complete peace of mind.
