I have just taken delivery of my Audi A1 on a Personal Contract Purchase, Stacey dealt with and organised it all very swiftly for me. A nice car at a very reasonable price per month - perfect!

Recommended without reserve
Having never leased before I was recommended to go to Howlett Leasing and was never disappointed. Stacey worked tirelessly and was available for help many times outside 'office' hours.
Very helpful, very efficient, very responsive, very considerate and worked through email very well, which suited my style as I was not always in the UK.
I can't recommend highly enough and would always make Howlett Leasing my first port of call if I want to lease again. Thank you.
Stephen, Bishops Stortford
Fantastic service from Stacey, when i ordered my car I was told because of the colour/trim choice I made that no vehicles of that colour/spec in UK. It would have to be a factory order and delivery would not be until December, we decided to wait as the colour was fantastic on that model.
So imagine my surprise when Stacey got in contact and said 'your car is ready when do you want it delivered', this was at the end of October a couple of months earlier than expected!
Thank you Stacey for all your hard work, and great service over the past few months, and for getting it for us at a very good price.
We highly recommend you to anyone thinking of getting a new car soon....First Class.

I have just had my Audi Q3 delivered on a business contract hire lease.
I would like to thank Stacey for all her patience in helping me to decide on this car and then finding it promptly for me.

I have just taken receipt of our new lease car from Howlett Leasing. Stacey has been very helpful and responsive. She took the time to guide me through the process to find the best deal for me. I would not hesitate to recommend them.'

Stacey at Howlett Leasing was brilliant from start to finish. Having never leased a car before she answered all my questions and provided good, practical advice. The process was extremely quick and painless, most of the paperwork was dealt with via email and I only had to visit the office to sign the final documents. My car was ordered on a Tuesday and I took delivery the Thursday of the following week.
I am extremely pleased with my Skoda Octavia 1.6D SE and the deal that Stacey put together for me. I would advise anyone looking for a family car with all the luxuries and extra's of more expensive cars, a huge boot, very economical and great styling, to consider an Octavia. I will definitely be using Stacey again and would be happy to recommend her excellent service to anyone.

PERSONAL contract hire – or PCH – is essentially the same as regular contract hire; except that it applies exclusively for private individuals. Hirers obtain use of a new car for a contractual period and make fixed monthly payments to a leasing company for the duration of the contract.
When the contract expires they simply return the car to the leasing company and renew with a new car and contract. As a result they never have to concern themselves with the possible resale value of the car.
Budget for maintenance, too
A great benefit for small business employees is that most PCH deals will include maintenance packages so users don’t have to worry about the general upkeep of the vehicle. Also, the monthly instalments should generally be lower than those of personal loans. They will also be fixed which will help budgeting which in today’s uncertain climate is just the ticket.
It also gives many drivers access to more upmarket cars. We find that with a PCH deal people can afford a car that may otherwise be too expensive. As luxury cars tend to depreciate at the slowest rates, these can often provide the best PCH deals.
Personal contract hire is often popular with small business owners or the self-employed. If you are a limited company, then there is no company car tax to pay. If you are self-employed and not VAT-registered, it’s also an effective method of running a new car – costs can be set against taxable profits minus an element of private use.
You can recharge business mileage by using the AMAP method of 45p per mile (available at this rate for the first 10,000 miles), which is tax-free.
PCH is most popular form of car lease at the moment – a trend which looks set to continue.
