LEASING Options celebrates 25 years with an Audi R8 cake-buster! It was its own style of blowing out the candles to mark a quarter century of offering contract hire deals to businesses and personal customers.
Family run Leasing Options has recently seen unprecedented growth. The company experienced 88% growth inside two years, with the past three years seeing the best direct sales figures in the company’s history.
Over the past 25 years, the company has increased its offering of manufacturers and funding choices to combine and enhance its deals. This has meant that Leasing Options has provided nearly 60,000 vehicles to the UK market since the company began.
Nigel Brain, co-founder and managing director at Leasing Options, said: “25 years ago, costs to fund and lease vehicles were very expensive. The access to these funders and preferential rates was a ‘best kept secret’ only large firms and blue chip corporations could access.
“We wanted to prove that leasing could be done for much less, and make it accessible to as many people as possible from a sole trader, or a small medium business. We’ve thankfully been proved right.”
Recent years have shown a huge investment in staff and training, with local talent identified and hired where possible. The company also recently purchased personal FITBIT activity trackers for all staff to try develop and encourage a healthy workforce.
Supplying a national market with cars delivered anywhere from Edinburgh to Lands End, Leasing Options supply from 37 car manufacturers and have delivered nearly 60,000 vehicles, but at the heart is a family business that managing director Nigel Brain and his partner Karin still keep in close contact with.
Nigel said: “We are so pleased with how the business has progressed over the past 25 years and now is the right time to push the business forward and increase our services further in the near future.”
