Testimonials

The service Howlett leasing provide is first class being friendly and cost effective. From the outset we were informed of the progress of the order for the Ford Ranger and once delivered the communication continued ensuring we were happy and that everything was correct on the vehicle. We had the top and tow bar fitted before delivery as a special order which again was handled in a professional and efficient manner.

Thanks again for your service the Ranger is fine and having now driven it for some time and had the opportunity to tow with it I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for pick up with a bit more class.

When the time came to change my car I wondered if I could afford a Jaguar? I visited two local dealers to have a look, get some idea of price and maybe arrange a test drive. Before I left the house my wife said 'make sure you get a red one, I like red'.

The first dealer said they didn?t have red in stock, they quoted £1500 deposit plus £484 per month on a Personal Lease for the basic model. I visited another dealer who had the Racing Red R Sport Black Special Edition ex demo in stock. The best deal they could do on that model was over £700 per month but offered a better deal on new one at £1500 deposit and £499.66 per month.

I called Stacey and she came back to me with exactly the car I wanted. I couldn?t believe it when she quoted over £110 per month cheaper than the dealer.

The application process was simple, Stacey took care of everything and the car turned up exactly when I wanted. To say I am happy is an understatement. If anyone is thinking of changing their car and looking at new or nearly new you should consider leasing and speak to Stacey.

This is the second time Stacey has found the exact truck and spec faster and cheaper than I could find else where. You get exactly what you ask for with no hassle, with Stacey doing all the work. Thanks for all the work and will be using you again.

Alan Wilkinson from KLH Architects recently took delivery of his new Golf. Having met Alan at a local Networking event, Babergh Friends in Business, we discussed his requirements over a few meetings. His new appointment with KLH Architects meant he needed a car with a good MPG and an affordable monthly payment, without foregoing the essentials and a few luxurys. Alan had this to say:-

'I'd like to thank Stacey Howlett for the excellent service that she provided me and for helping me choose a great car for my needs. She was really helpful throughout the process, right up until the car was delivered. We had a lovely delivery driver who went through the car and showed me everything that I needed to know. Thank you so much again and I would definitely recommend Howlett Leasing to friends, families and other companies'ť.

We at KLH have been very happy with your service and are very likley to recommend you or use you again.

Thank you.

Howlett Leasing offer a superb service. Quotations cover a range of vehicles and plans available. Once you make your choice the order process is user friendly and easy to use. Howlett Leasing keep you up to sate on progress. If you have any queries during the process, or afterwards, they are always there to help and if they cannot directly assist they always direct you to who you need to speak to. I have just ordered my second car on lease from Howlett Leasing - I had to come back to them as their whole service is brilliant.

My first dealings with Howlett Leasing, having been recommended by a colleague, and I found them very helpful, accurate and delivered on time, not forgetting great pricing! I will thoroughly recommend this company to all my associates and look forward to continued business in the future.

It Could be a Year of Car Hire Chaos Abroad!

Holidaymakers are being warned to expect a summer of car hire disruption. The DVLA is to scrap the paper counterpart of driving licences from 8 June,  drivers will need to obtain a special online code before heading abroad – or they may be refused a rental car.

The DVLA is abolishing the paper counterpart that accompanies all UK photocard licences which will no longer be legally valid. All endorsements will be held electronically on a web-based service called “Share Driving Licence”.

Fears are growing the new rules will  lead to some hirers being turned away by car hire firms because they insist on examining the paper document to check on any endorsements or bans.

After 8 June holidaymakers will have to log on to the DVLA website the day before they leave and input their driving licence number and national insurance number. The system will then generate a one-time passcode which the holidaymaker can give to the hire company when they arrive at the desk.

However, the code is only valid for 72 hours, which means holidaymakers hiring a car in the second week of a foreign trip having to find an internet cafe and log on abroad, or pay roaming charges, if they want to show the car hirer their record. If they fail to produce the online code, the car hire firm may call the DVLA’s premium rate line (charged at up to £3 a minute) to check the driver’s status – if they can get through.

The Share Driving Licence system, which is still being worked on, will be ready in time for 8 June. Consumers will also be able to download their driving history as a printable PDF, although it is unclear whether all car hire firms will accept that.

Few people seem to be aware of the changes,  even including people working close to the industry. Car Hire Staff can phone the DVLA’s 0906 premium rate number, and charge the customer accordingly. However, the DVLA couldn’t say what would happen to car hirers abroad as foreign hires are not part of its remit.

Holidaymakers are advised to follow the DVLA instructions but at the very least to take their national insurance number with them. Also obtain a PDF copy of your driving history from DVLA prior to heading off on holiday is “probably a wise move especially in the first months of transition”.

To access your driving history, the car hire company will enter the last eight digits of your driving licence, plus the passcode you have brought with you.  Or you can do it at the desk with your smartphone if you can remember the website address, don’t mind the data roaming charges, can remember your national insurance number and are impervious to the long queue developing behind you!
