Testimonials

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

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 Sim, Bury St Edmunds


'From the moment the e-mail arrived, making me aware of the fantastic deal Howlett Leasiing were able to offer, to the moment the car was delivered, the service I have received has been 1st class. Stacey communicated with me all the way, patiently explaining how the lease worked and what was required. All the paperwork was sent through quickly and efficiently, and the whole process could not have been more straightforward. The car was delivered on time, with a full explanation of all the controls and helpful advice for maintenance and eventual return.

I would recommend Howlett Leasing to anyone thinking of leasing a car - the price was also considerably better than the Ford main dealer!'ť

Mr G Austin, Bury St Edmunds

Howlett Leasing have dealt with leasing the vehicles of my last 3 companies over a 10 year period and I couldn't recommend them high enough. Extremely helpful and efficient.We will definitely use them again in the future

Sandy Wright, East Lothian

I have purchased numerous cars and commercial vehicles through Howlett Leasing over the past 15 years for my personal use and my company Orchard Valley Homes. Stacey Howlett has always given me an extremely fast and reliable service plus effortlessly supplying me vehicles with long delivery times much, much faster than any main dealer could.

I would highly recommend Howlett Leasing to all my personal and business contacts as I know how fast and professional their service is.

I have just taken delivery of my amazing new Range Rover today which Howletts delivered months earlier than any Land Rover Dealer had quoted.

One very satisfied customer !

Mr Richard Wilding, Woodbridge

The service Howlett leasing provide is first class being friendly and cost effective. From the outset we were informed of the progress of the order for the Ford Ranger and once delivered the communication continued ensuring we were happy and that everything was correct on the vehicle. We had the top and tow bar fitted before delivery as a special order which again was handled in a professional and efficient manner.

Thanks again for your service the Ranger is fine and having now driven it for some time and had the opportunity to tow with it I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for pick up with a bit more class.

Aspect Commercial Wheels, Cowley

Excellent customer service and an excellent car at an excellent price!

Steven Rhodes, Bishops Stortford

A big thank you to Stacey at Howlett Leasing! It is rare to find companies that genuinely care about their clients. The service you provided was remarkable from start to finish - always available to help and you were very patient. I will definitely be using your company again and recommending you to others. Thank you!

Dominic Branson, Rochford

Having committed the cardinal sin of trying Vanarama for my new van, and despite their unbelievable prices I soon found things were not what they seemed. I soon lost faith. I'd known Stacey for a while and from the first call Howlett Leasing gave me an honest, competitive price with no strings attached, no onerous conditions to meet - just a great price quoted by humans, real people with experience of their profession, this was great! From there it was remarkably easy to process the agreement and take delivery in fact a matter of weeks before my Black Citroen Berlingo arrived. It has since done everything asked of it and more and I'm very pleased with the van and the deal. Stacey also helped with Van insurance too. Thanks Stacey and the Howlett team for processing the contract hire so smoothly, it was great doing business.

Graham Pretty, Colchester

This is the second van Adrian has taken from us.

Why Choose Personal Contract Hire?

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.
