Personal Contract Hire

As the name suggests Personal Contract Hire (also known as personal leasing) is simply contract hire but for individuals

Personal Contract Hire (PCH) is based on a fixed term contract where customers pay an agreed monthly charge for the use of a vehicle for a previously agreed period.

Advantages:

  • Flexible initial payment
  • Fixed term contract
  • Fixed mileage contract
  • Fixed cost motoring
  • Flexible profiles to suit you
  • You only pay for the use of the vehicle
  • At the end of your contract simply hand the vehicle back
  • Option of including maintenance with the contract
  • No depreciation or disposal risk

Disadvantages:

  • Vehicle must be returned in a well maintained condition
  • Early termination can be expensive
  • You must have fully comprehensive vehicle insurance
  • You will never own the vehicle

More Information on Personal Contract Hire:

It benefits customers wishing to eliminate the financial risk associated with disposing of a vehicle. Contracts are usually taken over two, three or four years, providing a high level of flexibility. Some contracts can be formally extended beyond the end of contract date if required. Just ask and we can answer any of your questions regarding extending your contract.

PCH is very similar to business Contract Hire; both are based on a fixed annual mileage agreed on inception of a contract. You will need to decide how many miles you drive each year before quotations can be obtained. Once you have stated how many miles you drive in a year and considered which vehicle you would like to lease a quote can be created for you by one of our sales team.

Regulations with regard to making mileage amendments after contracts are live vary from funder to funder, so it is always better to be as accurate as you can be. If you do exceed the agreed allowance at the end of your contract you will pay an excess mileage charge, which will have been agreed upon prior to signing the finance agreement.

Please remember this when deciding upon you annual mileage. If you are looking to have predictable motoring costs adding maintenance to your monthly payment is easy. Maintenance is there to put your mind at rest should any challenges arise with your vehicle and generally covers servicing, routine maintenance, tyres, exhausts and batteries.

Please note that it is responsibility of the person named on the finance agreement to arrange and pay for fully comprehensive insurance for the vehicle. It is important that the vehicle is returned in accordance with the guidelines set out in the 'Fair Wear and Tear Guide', a copy of which is made available to customers when they are near the end of their PCH agreement.

Testimonials

I have been really impressed with the professional and friendly way you have handled this lease deal. I have been impressed from start to finish.

Lyle Cross

Firstly I want to thank you for your help, time, and support the past few years. I know that you have at times gone out your way to achieve customer satisfaction.
You and your team are very professional, and I would not hesitate to recommend friends and anyone that I know who would wish to lease a car from yourselves.

The decision to lease a car through the business was a new concept to me but it made sense at the time and has been great value for money.
The service and commitent to please was well noted and for all that I would like to thank you very much

Gary Kent

I have thought long and hard about a personal lease for myself and gone through endless hours of comparisons since I first contacted Jacki Stevenson with no knowledge of personal leasing at all. It was her professionalism, swiftness of answering every query I had (and there are endless mails) and nothing was too much trouble. I had her do endless quotes of different makes, term lengths, costs etc.

It was her dedication for the sale and politeness in execution from conception to finality, that swayed me to go with yourselves regardless that I had got cheaper quotes. I was made to feel secure in my decision and backed by your company (trust in that I have dealt with you for two and a half years) as your employee I felt she is worth a moment of my time for the recognition she not only deserves but the fact that again, another trustworthy member of staff. You must have something good there….

Thank you once again Jacki, I m looking forward to my new, white Nissan Juke

In 2008 our Fleet of 50 cars was spread across a number of suppliers with a mixture of owned, leased and hire purchase vehicles. Windmill Leasing has helped us with every aspect of the transition to a fully managed and maintained fleet.

They were flexible during the transition period by supporting vehicles not originally supplied by them and managing the disposal of our owned and HP cars.

The new fleet of Golf and Passat bluemotion cars have reduced our fuel bills by 10% and overall our fleet costs have reduced by 22% over the past 2 years.

The main benefits, however, have little to do with cost and more to do with the service we receive. Our drivers deal directly with the Windmill Leasing Service Team for all their requirements – servicing, tyres, temporary vehicles, loans, accident management, repairs.

It is hassle-free for me, my Personnel Department and my Finance Team. We have a large mobile workforce – so that is really saying something. When I think back to the aggravation we had on a daily basis before Windmill Leasing stepped in I shudder.

Windmill Leasing is full of friendly and professional people who offer an exceptional service at a competitive price. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Nicholas Orme, Chief Executive, Portraya

Windmill Leasing are a company who have always had my best interest at heart. I have felt extremely well looked after and their prices are very competitive. They have always been efficient and their personal approach is credit to their staff and management. I am very happy to be a client.

Chris Pennell, Worcester Warriors Captai

I just wanted to inform you that I have received delivery of the Qashqai this morning. Of course very pleased to have it and most importantly thank you very much for all assistance through the process and the excellent service you have provided. I will definitely recommend your company for any future vehicle purchases

Merril Mathias, Luckings Logistics

I have just taken delivery of my new Mercedes SLK and called to let Claire know. Also to thank her so much for her help with my order.

However I wanted to email you, to pass on how impressed I have been with Claire's service level. She has worked on sourcing a car for me for a few weeks now and from beginning to end she has been outstanding. She was always very clear on what was possible or not and never over promised, unlike some sales people I encounted along the way! She soughtt out quite a few solutions to issues that presented themselves and ultimately went way beyond the service level I was expecting especially when we have never met face to face, only dealt with each other by phone and email, which sometimes makes things more difficult. I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire and your company to others looking for a car.

Viven Kyles,

I originally approached Windmill Leasing some 18 months ago when I was caught off guard and opened up one of their eshots. The first person I spoke to was Jacki,who immediately impressed me with her knowledge and speed in dealing with my requested. I am pleased to say I have been using them ever since.
