David Blundell Electrical from Colchester, Essex, recently took delivery of his brand new Vauxhall Corsa 1.3 CDti SX on a Business Contract Hire agreement, David said .... 'Why can't everything be as simple as this? An easy to use service, very straightforward, just how I like it with just a few forms to complete. I am very pleased with the car, it was the right car at the right price with a good mpg and easy to park'.

"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

This is the second personal leased car I have taken with Howlett Leasing.  The Seat Ateca is lovely, so easy to drive too.  The service provided was good from everyone, from the collection of the old car to the delivery of the new Seat.
