Testimonials

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.

Leasing is easy with the right person to help. This is the 3rd car I’ve leased with Stacey and I have to say she has always outdone herself with her wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise. I’ve recommended lots of people her way and they all say the same. I’ve got this car on a brilliant deal thanks to Stacey and I love it, it’s economical and looks great! If you want a professional and an awesome deal Stacey is definitely your go to girl.

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.

Fantastic, efficient service from Stacey from start to finish. 5/5 from me!

Zoe Cutting

'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

Took delivery this week of my new car arranged by Howlett Leasing. Didn't have a clue what was the best option for me after having a company car for the last 15 years but my excellent contact at Howletts explained everything I needed to know to make an informed decision. Great range of cars available at amazing prices which I couldn't beat anywhere else, added with great service made dealing with Howlett a pleasurable experience. I will certainly be using Howletts again and recommending their services to friends and colleagues.

'Stacey has always provided a brilliant service, taking a lot of the pain out of renewing the car each time and always going out of her way to meet my requirements. I highly recommend Howlett Leasing.'


Alan Wilkinson, Suffolk

Thank you Stacey for all the quotes and help and very pleased with the X Trail. Thank you for helping trading the van too and see you in 3 years time!

Edward Hyde, Roger Hyde Ltd, Ipswich, Su

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.

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”.
