Is it a good idea to lease a van in the UK?

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.

How does van leasing work?

Van leasing can be straightforward and at the end of your lease contract, you won’t have anything more to pay as long as the car is still in good condition and you didn’t exceed your agreed mileage. Here’s how it works...  

  • Choose your van

    Compare from the makes and models on offer, including the monthly rental cost, to find a van that suits your needs. Once happy with your decision, complete the application form. 

  • Decide on contract length

    You’ll usually be able to choose a contract of 24, 36 or 48 months. Monthly payments can be cheaper for longer contracts, but you’ll need to pay for an MOT if you lease for more than three years. 

  • Agree annual mileage

    Specify how far you plan to drive the van each year up to 30,000 miles. Try to be accurate with your estimation as you could be charged for excessive mileage when you return the van. 

  • Pay an upfront fee

    You’ll make a downpayment, typically between one and nine months of the fixed lease price. The higher the upfront payment, the lower your remaining monthly payments will be. 

How much does van leasing cost?

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

What are the pros and cons of leasing a van?

There are many advantages to leasing a van, but there some disadvantages to consider as well: 

  • Tick

    Pros

    • 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 

  • Cross

    Cons

    • 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 

How to get the best van leasing deal

When you decide to lease a van, it’s cost-effective to get the right deal and contract to suit your needs. These pointers should help: 

  • 1

    Decide on your budget

    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. 

  • 2

    Select the right van

    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. 

  • 3

    Predict annual mileage

    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.

    Shop around

    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. 

Can I lease a van with bad credit?

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.
