After leasing my first vehicle from Stacey a Ford Transit Custom for work, i was keen to upgrade the family car too. This ticked all the boxes spec wise and power wise, even more impressed with the size of the boot considering its a saloon. Im really happy with the automatic, having never owned one before i was slightly anxious about having an auto but im very happy i made the switch. We took out a 2 year PCH on 8,000 miles per year, which i think will be tight but its reassuring that we can change that if we think we will go over. I look forward to leasing our next vehicle again in 2 years time.

Fantastic service from Stacey and a great price too. If you can't see the exact deal you want, just ask - I did and was amazed with the offer. I would not hesitate to recommend Howlett Leasing, they are superb.

Stuart O'Neil, Essex

I would like to thank Stacey and the team at Howletts for the superb service that Pewter Partnership have received. They made the whole process of leasing cars for our staff easy and the level of customer care has been exemplary.

Will Pewter, Suffolk

Excellent Service and experience
I have recently started leasing a car and this is the first time I have leased a car so needed lots of information. I used Stacey at Howlett Leasing and she was very helpful and walked me through each step until after the car was delivered.
I would highly recommend!!

Shelley Roberts, Hampshire

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

This is the second van that I have leased through Howlett Leasing and on both occasions the service has been excellent. Stacey couldn't have been more helpful and was always available to answer any questions. My new van turned up when expected and I am delighted with it. Fast, friendly, proffessional service thanks.

Ross Holmes Plumbing and Heating, Sudbur

Good understanding of what the client wants. Explain everything very clearly with good advice tips to help the client to make the correct decision before placing the actual order

Paul Pun, Romford Essex

I have just taken delivery of my Audi A1 on a Personal Contract Purchase, Stacey dealt with and organised it all very swiftly for me. A nice car at a very reasonable price per month - perfect!

Karen Williams from St Ives

For over 6 years, we have leased a number of Peugeot hatchbacks through Howlett Leasing. We have always received the very best of personal service and look forward to its continuation in the future.

J Mabb, Beef & Lamb NZ Ltd, Essex

This was the first time I’ve leased a new van. My customer experience from Stacey at Howlett leasing was exceptional, from the first phone call I made to the delivery of new van was second to none. I would highly recommend using Howlett leasing as I will be again if I ever decide to lease another vehicle. I went to other companies for quotes but the thing that set them apart was nothing ever seemed like a problem and Stacey wasn’t ever ‘pushy’ to sign on the dotted line like some of the main dealers out there.

Why you should read this about WLTP

WLTP is the new method of measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissionsVirtually all new cars will have to show the new WLTP measurement from September 01, 2018.It will affect fuel consumption figures, and CO2 emissions, all of which are predicted to worsen.This will have a potential knock-on effect on Vehicle Excise Duty, and benefit in kind company car taxation.

HAVE you ever wondered why the official fuel consumption of your vehicle might claim to be 67.3mpg, yet you struggle to breach the 50mpg mark? Well, you’re not alone. What’s the point of ‘official’ figures that are wildly misleading? That’s why the new WLTP test regime has been implemented. It replaces the existing NEDC measurement that is currently in use. All new cars must be tested under the new WLTP regime by September 01, 2018.

WLTP stands for Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure. WLTP is the replacement for NEDC. NEDC stands for New European Driving Cycle. The latter was a lab-based system with a noble ambition of measuring fuel consumption and emissions so consumers could compare vehicles. Except it wasn’t accurate. Or designed for the new breed of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. It’s simply not fit for purpose any more. WLTP, while still lab-based, measures cars over much more realistic ‘in-life’ conditions. There’s much less of the steady driving measured by NEDC; more of the stop-start, accelerate-brake you experience in everyday driving. And more emphasis on urban driving conditions. WLTP also lasts longer (double the distance to 14.5 miles), has a higher average speed (21mph versus 29mph) and features more gearchanges. So you get the picture; it’s a much tougher test.

What will be the effect of WLTP on my choice of car?Cars tested under the previous NEDC method are likely to show substantial increases in CO2 emissions and a worsening of fuel consumption. For example, cars that were once below 110g/km of CO2 may now have emissions in excess of 130g/km. This will have an impact on future company car choice, simply because the benefit in kind value will increase (since company car tax is based on a combination of CO2 emissions, P11D value and fuel type). However, existing business motorists should note that WLTP tested figures will not be applied retrospectively to existing company cars. WLTP may also impact your choice of car if you company has a company car policy based on CO2 emission bands. Or if it certain cars are placed outside a company car policy based on fuel consumption criteria. WLTP also places more emphasis on the detailed vehicle specification than the old test. So it recognises factors such as the rolling resistance of tyres (the impact of choosing 20 inch alloys against standard 18 inch alloys, for example). Or how options fitted by a car manufacturer may affect the overall CO2 emissions. While this may seem disadvantageous for the consumer initially, the WLTP ratings are much more realistic and reflect more closely everyday usage

The WLTP transition timelineMoving to the new new WLTP test procedure has already begun. This actually commenced from September 01, 2017 for all new car models. New car models will, however, continue to be taxed under NEDC correlated values. (A formula to prevent additional complexity during the transition phase.) But there are further important dates that will affect business motoring. Here’s what you need to know: September 01, 2018 Mandatory WLTP testing for all new car registrations from this date.January 01, 2019 Another critical WLTP date. From the beginning of 2019, mpg and electric range must be represented by WLTP data; NEDC correleated figures will be shown for CO2 emissions.April 06, 2020 Consumer information switches from NEDC CO2 figures to WLTP CO2 figures.Car taxation from this date will also be based on WLTP CO2 figures.
