Vanarama Short-Term Leasing
- Vanarama will offer predominantly high-spec, premium brand cars and vans on 6 to 18-month leases to limited companies
VANARAMA looks set to disrupt the short-term leasing market with the launch of Vanarama Short-Term Leasing. Initially available to business customers, Vanarama will offer predominantly high-spec, premium brand cars and vans on 6 to 18-month leases to limited companies.
The company is responding to a growing demand from vehicle leasing customers for short-term leasing solutions. Personal leasing customers should also be able to benefit from Vanarama’s short-term offering which will be fully-FCA regulated later in the spring.
It has developed close relationships with some of the leading wholesale rental vehicle providers, from where the short-term rental stock will be sourced. These trusted relationships mean that the company can access brand-new, high specification vehicles from the leading marques, offering them to their short-term leasing customers for the equivalent price or less than some of its competitors are offering more basic, less prestigious models.
Headed up by Michael Consitt, Vanarama Short-Term Leasing will benefit from his wealth of experience, including time at CarLeasing365 – which he brought to the market – and online provider FlexxiLease.
He is confident that there is a massive demand for the short-term product: “No matter the size of a company, there is often a need for a short lease – established businesses may have short-term contracts to fulfil or perhaps have or an employee in need of a flexible transport solution, or even have new recruits with a qualifying probation period.”
It’s not just business customers who see the need for short-term leasing, as Michael explains: “Sometimes personal leasing customers might need a short-term lease to fill a stop-gap between vehicles, but many people also see the benefit of changing their van or car more frequently, much as you would a mobile phone contract.
“Customers get the latest high-end technology, always have a vehicle that best suits both their current lifestyle and budget, and – with the latest safety features – it may just save their life.”
Andy Alderson, CEO of Vanarama, concludes: “Of course, there are already companies out there offering short-term leasing solutions. By launching our own offer, however, not only can we use our buying power to source customers some great deals, but we can also offer them the reassurance of the Vanarama brand and the award-winning customer service for which we’re known.”
