Vehicle Maintenance Explained

Learn exactly what you pay for in maintenances packages.

Forget about those surprise maintenance bills from the garage! When it comes to Car & Van leasing, there’s no getting away from those extra costs associated with servicing and repairs and tyres for your chosen lease vehicles However these costs could be massively reduced if you add a maintenance package to your lease agreement. A maintenance package is optional, but it can provide you with peace of mind and protect you from unanticipated expenses.

  • All consumable items eg. bulbs, batteries, exhausts, wiper blades, alternators, starter motors.
