Testimonials

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

Carol Schleip, Hadleigh

"The passion and the process of leasing my Mercedes CLS is as much of an experience as a walk amongst the supercars in a showroom!
"Thanks again, and see you next time...!"

Tracy Dolan

"I have leased 4 cars from Stacey now and have various friends and family whom have used her company... Stacey is hands down the best person I have come across in this industry, she is hardworking, reliable and honest, I’ve always received great customer care and service and she always has cracking deals on!"

Cherelle Letter, Essex

I received great service from Stacey at Howlett's. I had never leased a car before and found Stacey to be very helpful and I didn't feel that any of my questions would be considered to be silly! I would definitely recommend to friends and family and will be returning when my lease has ended to find another great deal! Thank you.

Samantha Hindwell, Essex

I cannot recommend Stacey highly enough. I was told about her from our local garage and cannot fault the service she provided. She found a great deal for me on the car I wanted. I'm so pleased with it. Thank you Stacey.

Rachel Mozley, Grantham

I have dealt with car leasing companies in the past but never one that ticked all my boxes re professionalism, responsiveness, attention to detail, customer focus and business knowledge. Stacey did a fantastic job in securing me a great deal on my VW Golf, from point of enquiry to vehicle delivery. I will be recommending Howlett Leasing as the only go to leasing company for real results!

Chris Ives, Essex

Very smooth and easy way to obtain my new Mini Clubvan. I received updates from Stacey Howlett and Jon from Mini at every stage, including after sales care.

Mr Stephen Bass, Grays

I would just like to say a 'Big Thank You'! Over the past 4 years Ames has leased several vehicles from you and received various quotes from Stacey Howlett and her team. The service provided is always 1st class and a pleasure to discuss potential business. I would definitely recommend your company

AlRead, Altek Mid Environ, Birmingham

"An excellent , rapid and friendly service. Price reasonable. I would recommend Howlett Leasing."

Ronnie Howson

I needed a business car urgently so contacted Stacey at Howlett Leasing one afternoon. Within a couple of hours everything had gone through and I was choosing from a range of colours. The car was delivered promptly to my preferred location and is great! A truly First Class service and I would definitely recommend to others.

Drivers who leave engines idling ‘should be fined’

Almost three-quarters (72%) of drivers say they want councils to crackdown on engine idling, with 44% of those saying they should be fined if they refuse to switch them off, new RAC research suggests. However, one in four (26%) of the 2,130 drivers surveyed by the RAC say motorists should just be told to switch off without being fined, whereas 2% said offenders should be fined without any warning whatsoever.

While councils already have the power to take action against drivers who idle their vehicles while parked in the form a £20 fine, only a few choose to enforce this.

RAC head of roads policy Nicholas Lyes said:

“Many of the drivers we questioned would like to see some firm action taken against offenders. This is no doubt needed to bring about a change in behaviour.” 

“At the very least they would like a council official to speak to those who do it and ask them to switch off.”

 “You could liken the current situation with engine idling to that of taking your own carrier bags to the supermarket: everyone knew it was the right thing to do, but few of us did it until a compulsory charge was introduced. While the law is already in place for idling, enforcement is limited, if not non-existent. “The presence of enforcement officers and ‘no engine idling’ signs, complete with penalties, must be the next step in making our urban environments better for everyone who lives, drives and works in them.” At the end of June this year, the Government announced that it intends to launch a public consultation looking at increasing fines for idling drivers. A number of Councils have called for stronger powers to tackle the issue, inlcuding Westminster City Council leader Nickie Aiken who said: “Fines are our last resort but when we establish a pattern of persistent idling we need to be able to send a message.” Aiken added fines for company vehicles, such as supermarket delivery vans, that were caught idling needed to be “a four-figure sum to be a sufficient deterrent”.
