Traffic Light System

Traffic Light System on Short Term Leasing Accounts

Traffic Light System on STL Accounts

Our Short Term Car and Van Leasing Accounts operate on a traffic light system, this is to help us monitor your account and make sure its operating within our guidelines and that you are complying with our terms and conditions.

The idea is simple, if you keep your payments up to date and your vehicles are returned within the return condition parameters then you will be in the GREEN.

Should you continuously bounce payments, return the cars with excessive damage or mileage or receive a high number of PCN’s, then you may go into the RED.

See our Traffic Light Chart below:

Traffic Light Account Application

If your account does fall into the red, then there is a possibility that your vehicle may not be renewed at the end of the contract. Should you still be in your vehicle, it may be repossessed.

We are also obliged to inform our subscribed risk based systems such as Hireguard, Prohire Risk or BVRLA Risk. This may prevent you getting further cars with similar rental and short term leasing forms.

Non-Status Account Management

If you are on one of our non-status short term leasing programs, it is really important to stay in the GREEN. If you had risk terms put in place at the beginning of the contract, they maybe repeated at renewal or if you are in the RED, your account could be cancelled altogether.

What our customers are saying

We have used Cocoon Vehicles for several years now for short term flexible car leasing for Altitude Internet – this allows us to “pick and choose” vehicles as and when we need them without being saddled with long term expensive leasing agreements or cars that are not required.

The service has been excellent, we’ve always been offered a good choice of vehicles and at attractive rates.

We highly recommend Cocoon Vehicles and look forward to a continued long term relationship with them.

Updated 12 March 2019 – we have continued to use Cocoon for short term vehicle leasing and currently have a 1 Series, a 5 Series and an XC60. We have never had an issue with them and would recommend highly for short term leasing needs.

We’ve been hiring vehicles with Cocoon since 2014 which speaks volumes about their service., before, during and after each individual lease. 5 Stars all day long!
