A Van Lover’s Guide to Van Leasing

You’ve either always loved vans or have now decided you simply need a van. Be it for practical purposes, escapism and adventure, or in pursuit of your latest hobby, vans always appeal! That’s why we’ve made van leasing a viable option, no matter what. 

Van Leasing Explained

At Summit Vans, we recognised complex van leasing options were causing confusion, so we’ve come up with some simplified solutions and made this guide as an easy way of understanding them. 

How Does Van Leasing Work?

Van leasing is basically a long-term rental agreement where you pay a fixed monthly fee to use the van for an agreed period of time – we call this flexi-lease

People seem to love this option. One of the main reasons is because at the end of the lease term you simply return the van, with no worries about depreciation in value or the stress of trying to sell it yourself on eBay or Facebook Marketplace. 

Can You Lease a Van for Personal Use?

Obviously! Vans aren’t just for tradespeople. We lease vans to all walks of life. From outdoor thrill seekers who like to canoe, kayak and mountain bike their way around a weekend, to growing families who just want the extra space for all their kit.

Some are obsessed with vans (like we are) and drool over every detail, whereas others just want to get on the road. Whichever way, at Summit Vans, our van leasing deals are purposely designed to be flexible and convenient for each customer. 

Van Leasing for Business Owners

Van leasing makes a lot of sense for a lot of business owners. Our team takes on board your company’s needs and offers solutions to accommodate. In fact, we’ve leased fleets of vans tailored to a wide range of businesses, across a breadth of different industries and professions.

Benefits of Leasing a Van

Of that there are many, but here’s a few for you to chew over…

  • Flexibility: Van lovers can try out a variety of van models over our 6,12 or 24 month flexi-lease periods, with a brand new van at the start of each term! This way, you can always keep it fresh and benefit from the latest features and technologies, rather than committing long-term. Whether it’s a certain size van, its custom features, or one within your budget you desire, there’s always a solution.
  • Reduced Financial Commitment: With minimal upfront payments (including £0 actual deposit) and fixed monthly fees, our van leasing deals offer affordability paired with quality. Van lovers who want to minimise their financial commitment while still enjoying the benefits of leasing a luxury van are queuing up!
  • Maintenance Included: Unexpected repair bills are a thing of the past. Many of our leasing agreements include maintenance and service packages, giving you peace of mind on the road and in the pocket.
  • Tax Benefits: For business owners, leasing vans can offer tax advantages, such as claiming back VAT on monthly payments.

What You Should Know Before Leasing a Van

Before you rev up the engine, here are a few things to consider…

  • Mileage Limits: Most leasing agreements come with mileage restrictions, and we’re no different. So make sure to choose a plan that aligns with your anticipated usage.
  • Wear & Tear: We get it, vans are a lifestyle vehicle. We expect wear and tear, yet excessive damage may incur additional charges at the end of the lease term.
  • Early Termination Fees: If you decide to opt out of your deal by ending the lease early, you can expect some termination fees (sorry)! Whilst some circumstances are considered, it’s our job to make sure you choose the right lease term from the start.
