Non-Status Contract Hire and Leasing

Types of Non-Status

Short-Term Cars & Vans

Utilising our short-term vehicles, we can provide cars and vans to those that fit into the categories above.

Every application is looked on its own merit and our experienced underwriters look at both affordability and stability as part of the credit checking application.

Terms may differ from those advertised, this includes a higher documentation fee of at least: £295.00 + VAT. Security deposit, guarantees and indemnities may also be required depending on your circumstances.

No Credit Check Car Leasing?

No firms should allow you to have a vehicle finance agreement or hire agreement without performing the neccessary checks for FCA compliance and anti-money laundering regulations.

However, many companies offer affordability based agreements.
