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..

Howlett Leasing supplied me with my work van and the service Stacey gave me out of this world! Not only did she give me the best price out of all the quotes, the service was by far the best! I won't shop around next time and waste my time, I'll go straight to Howlett Leasing!

Limelight Design, Bury St Edmunds

Another straightforward transaction. Stacey is always very professional and keeps you informed every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend her company to anyone.

I have no hesitation in recommending Howlett Leasing who have supplied our vehicles for several years. Every time they have made the whole process straightforward and simple with the minimum of fuss and just the right amount of help and assistance in getting the right vehicle for our work and the right deal for our budget.

Mr R Lewis, Trad Oak Carpentry, Essex

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

Zoey Timpson, Suffolk

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.

I have just leased my second vehicle in succession from Stacey at Howlett's as I could not find a better combination of vehicle choice, overall service levels and all encompassing rates from any of the supposed 'national' alternatives.

The fact that they are within 10 miles of my home meant that I could see them any time to suit me should I have a concern with regard to any aspect of the vehicle.

Although this is my second vehicle with Howlett's I have been treated as a life long customer and Stacey and the team could not do enough to find the right vehicle for my specific requirements the second time around. She was ready to suggest some exciting alternatives to what I thought I may want.

I have no hesitation in recommending Howlett's to help you with searching for your ideal next lease vehicle.

Mr Andy Cornwell, Sudbury, Suffolk

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

'Being a small business owner myself, when I needed a new car I wanted to use a local Company to support the local community. Having met Stacey at a networking event it was an easy choice and the friendly and very efficient service combined to make it a first class decision - also taking my personalised number plate was easy. A great deal, with great service at a very competitive price - what more could you ask for - other than of douse hot sunny weather like today to enjoy the Cabriolet!'

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.
