Testimonials

This is the second time I have used Howlett leasing as I was so impressed with the service the first time. Stacey is brilliant and would definitely recommend. She found me the best deal for my Fiat 500 and kept me informed, without hassling me like a lot of dealers do.

Amy Fisher

Fantastic service and company! Made the process very simple and great communication throughout!

M Creegan, Maldon

Over the past ten years Howlett's have arranged the supply and finance for 10 of our company cars and three commercial vehicles. You have provided a first class personal service, always listening to our needs and doing your utmost to deliver those requirements.

I have no hesitation in recommending Howlett Leasing.

S Burgess, Lonsdale Metal Co Ltd, London

I first noticed Stacey's post on LinkedIn. I needed a new company car so I contacted Howlett Leasing and requested a quote on the new model of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV GX3+, we got the quote returned faster than the two Mitsubishi dealers we asked and Stacey's quote was the most competitive.

The new car was press released on the 26th October and the dealers were quoting long delivery times in late November. Stacey managed to get us a car only 3 days after the launch delivered on the 29th October. I would 100% recommend Howlett Leasing for competitive prices and outstanding customer service.

Paul Clark, PRM Waste Systems, Somerset

First class service from order to receipt of the car - outstanding in every way - a great team to do business with.

Jason Marshall, Lumina Prime, Horsham

Having leased a car previously from Howlett, I did not hesitate to approach Stacey when I considered a replacement under similar terms. I also approached three main dealers who were quite aloof in dealing with me. Howlett Leasing offered better terms, and Stacey dealt directly with a main dealer on my behalf. I will return to Howlett Leasing when this car needs replacing. I recommend Howlett Leasing for great service.

Thank you Stacey for making the lease of my new Toyota C-HR an absolute delight. From initial enquiry through to provision, you provided a fantastic service, keeping me updated and delivering on your promises. You made a complex process a complete breeze. Lovin' the car too. If you need a business lease, use Stacey. 100%

Craig Davies, Norfolk

Excellent service from Stacey and the whole process from start to finish was painless, efficient and very professional.

Carol Schleip, Hadleigh

'Stacey at Howlett Leasing offered fantastic service when I was looking to get a new car. I have never leased a car before so had many questions, which Stacey was able to answer swiftly and efficiently. I had a couple of queries regarding items that came as standard with the car and again Stacey was able to answer all the questions very quickly. The whole process was dealt with via email and I didn't even need to attend the office. The additional bonus was that the car was delivered right to my front door at a time and date that suited me. The whole process was easy and effortless and I would recommend Stacey to friends and family that are thinking of leasing a car. I would also use Stacey at Howlett leasing again should we need to lease more cars in the future.'

Thanks again - I love my car.

Jo Isaac, Halstead

My experience with Howlett Leasing has been excellent from start to finish. This is the second car I have leased through them. Stacey is very helpful and professional. I will definitely be leasing from them again, and would recommend them to family and friends.

Ad Blue

As part of the overall drive to reduce emissions, and to comply with the new Euro 6 emission standards, more and more diesel cars now include SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology.

Used in the right way, SCR can help to reduce Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions by as much as 90%, with fuel efficiency also increasing by between 3% and 5%. For the technology to work, vehicles need to be fitted with a special tank for storing a liquid-reductant agent known as AdBlue®. So if your vehicle is fitted with AdBlue® there are a few things you’ll need to know.

What exactly is AdBlue®?

AdBlue® is a mixture of water and urea, which you top up periodically, as you do with fuel. As you drive, AdBlue® flows from the tank into the exhaust pipe via a dedicated catalyst. The effect is a chemical reaction that converts most of the NOx molecules into nitrogen and water. This is then released into the atmosphere as steam.How do I fill up the AdBlue tank? AdBlue® is available from an increasing number of fuel stations and motorway services, but your dealer will also be able to supply AdBlue®. New vehicles tend to have a filling point next to the fuel cap, however it does vary depending on the manufacturer and model so it’s best to refer to the owner’s manual before you start.

How will I know when it’s needed?

It’s important to take action as soon as you see any relevant warning lights on your dashboard. There are three possible warnings:-
First Warning - advises you that the AdBlue® tank is getting low. Second Warning - will give you a mileage range and sometimes is accompanied by an acoustic warning. Final Warning - at this point the vehicle will either go into limp home mode (run at reduced power) or will not restart once the ignition has been switched off.

Many leasing companies consider AdBlue® to be a fuel and therefore the cost of refilling is not covered by maintenance contracts.
