Lots of choice
We’ll show you the latest in-stock deals, with all the key details you need to make an informed decision.
Leasing a van in the UK can be a smart choice for businesses or individuals who need access to a vehicle without the commitment of ownership.
It provides flexibility, access to reliable newer models, and cost control through fixed monthly payments without the need for a large, one-off fee to buy the vehicle.
But the decision does depend on individual circumstances and needs, so it's essential to weigh the pros and cons and review the terms and conditions before committing to a van leasing deal.
The cost of van leasing will depend on a number of factors, including the:
age, make and model of the van you want to hire
amount you pay upfront
length of the leasing contract
agreed annual mileage
Our table shows you the average monthly leasing costs for a number of popular models:

Ability to drive a reliable new van without having to sell an existing vehicle or have the cash to buy it outright
Road tax and warranty could be included, so you don’t have the additional costs but do have peace of mind for any repairs
You don’t have any responsibility for the van at the end of the contract and can hand it back and start over with a new lease
You won’t own the vehicle and, unlike other forms of van finance, once the contract is finished you have nothing to show for the monthly payments
There might be charges for additional wear and tear and it could be expensive if you breach terms such as maximum mileage
You may need a good credit record to give the provider confidence you can keep up with repayments on the van lease
Work out how much you can afford to spend per month to lease. Don’t forget running costs such as fuel and any insurance you might need for the van or its contents.
There’s plenty of choice, but make sure you pick the right van to suit your business requirements, such as having enough space of being fuel efficient if you’re travelling large distances.
Take time to assess how far you’ll drive each year so you get the right deal from the outset and won’t face extra mileage charges, which can later prove expensive.
Don’t settle for the first van that pops up. Ensure you compare a wide range of deals before making a final decision. We’ve partnered with leasing experts Moneyshake to help find you a great deal.
You might be able to lease a van if you have bad credit, but your choices are likely to be more limited and the monthly repayments may be more expensive to reflect your poor credit score.
An alternative is to save up and buy the van outright because this doesn’t involve a credit check. However, if you need to take out a van loan to enable you to make the purchase, having bad credit might hold you back here as well.
It is always worth taking steps to improve you or your business’ credit rating because this will help any time you want to access credit, such as applying for a loan, for example.
