I have just taken delivery of a new Peugeot 208 Allure from Howlett Leasing on a Personal Contract Hire. It is the first time I have ever had a top-of-the-range car, and still trying to master everything on the touch-screen.
Am delighted with the car, and thank you to Stacey who was so patient with me as I changed my mind again and again, then didn't send the right forms, but we got there in the end. Nothing was too much trouble for Stacey as she re-calculated three times, but it was all worth it in the end.

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.
I would like to thank Stacey @ Howlett Leasing for delivering excellent customer service from start to end.

Howletts were not quite the cheapest deal out there, but the benefit of having a face to deal with, who will almost certainly be there when you next call, rather than a voice on the phone anywhere, is in my view worth a bit extra. They have continued to keep in touch 6 months after I took out my lease and are very keen to make sure I am happy. Will be going back there again next time I lease..

Excellent service from Stacey and the whole process from start to finish was painless, efficient and very professional.
Carol Schleip, Hadleigh
The Service provided by Stacey was personal and professional. I was unsure what I wanted and she was patient with me, helping me to find the perfect little car.
The whole process went smoothly, including the test drive! I love my new car and would use Howlett leasing again and thoroughly recommend them for anyone wanting a great service and value for money.

Stacey at Howlett leasing was very professional. I had concerns as never leased a car before. The service was second to none. Highly recommend....

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.

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.

WITH more than 772,096 sales under its belt, it’s time for a new Range Rover Evoque. And here it is, the all-new Range Rover Evoque, featuring a range of traditional, mild hybrid and plug-in electric hybrid variants. Although we’ll have to wait a bit for the really low emission tax busting PHEV models to really make the Evoque a company car hit.
Prices start from £31,600 and the trim grades are: Evoque, S, SE, HSE and First Edition. It’s virtually the same size as its predecessor, but sits on Land Rover’s new mixed-material Premium Transverse Architecture. This means there is more interior space than before. A longer wheelbase yields 20mm extra rear kneeroom and an increase in small item stowage – the larger glove box and centre cubby can now fit tablets, handbags and bottles with ease.
The good news for business motoring drivers is that, for the first time, there is mild hybridisation of the engine and transmission. The mild hybrid powertrain is a first for Land Rover and works by harvesting energy normally lost during deceleration thanks to the engine-mounted belt-integrated starter generator, storing it in the under-floor battery. At speeds below 11mph, the engine will shut off while the driver applies the brakes. When pulling away, the stored energy is redeployed to assist the engine under acceleration and reduce fuel consumption. Available across the range (when specified with automatic gearbox) of four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, the mild hybrid delivers CO2 emissions from as low as 149g/km and fuel economy from 50.4mpg. While the mpg sounds laudable, for company car drivers, that means a benefit in kind of 37% – so it will still be expensive until that PHEV version comes along. The 150PS diesel engine with front wheel drive emits 143g/km offering a company car tax banding 1% lower for 2019/20.
