Car Hire and Leasing vs Buying a Car

At Amber Vehicle solutions we offer a car hire and leasing service that is second to none, but many people still prefer to buy their car instead. In this article we will take a look at both of these options, what the differences are, and what the pros and cons of each method of owning a car are as well.

Leasing A Brand New Car

Vehicle Lease Hire is a great way to drive a brand new car every few years, in a similar way to long-term rental contract. If you think about it in terms of a mobile phone contract – like your mobile you won’t own the car but you will get to treat it as your own. The legal owner of the car should be listed as the leasing company, and once you get to the end of your lease you will have to give the car back. Occasionally the leasing company may offer you the option to buy the car at the end of the lease, but that is between you and your chosen company. Leasing is a great option if you fancy upgrading to a new car model every few years, and they tend to be built to order so you may have to wait a while.

Lease deals are usually only available for brand new cars and so you will be covered by the same manufacturer’s warranty as if you had bought the car outright. Most lease deals will last about the same time as the manufacturer’s warranty so you shouldn’t have to worry too much about any repairs that need doing if anything does happen to go wrong with the car. Most new cars won’t need a MOT either until they are three years old, so this is money saving as well.

However, leasing is not for everyone. Some people are put off by the fact that they won’t actually own the car, and the fact that there will be mileage caps and extra charges for any damage not repaired.

Buying a New Car

This is when you choose the exact specification, colour and model of your car and then it is built in the factory and shipped to your house. If you don’t mind waiting for your car to be built then this is the best way to get exactly the car that you want, with the satisfaction of knowing you are the first to drive it and it will arrive with no delivery miles on the clock either.Buying a new car is great, yes, but there are some things you will need to keep in mind before you commit to this. You will need to remember that it will take a long time to build and be shipped over to the dealer. Also, you will face depreciation costs as soon as the car is delivered to you and any maintenance costs associated with the car will be your responsibility.
