Howlett leasing was recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad they did.
Very friendly service and always on hand to explain things in laymans terms. I'm very happy with my vehicle and when my agreement is up will no doubt be talking to Stacey again.  Karl Marie, K & J Construction, Surrey

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

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'.

David Blundell Electrical, Colchester

Howlett Leasing was recommended to me by one of our employees who had used their service. I have to say that I was delighted with the service provided by Stacey, nothing was too much trouble for her and the car was delivered within the timescale, excellent!

The car we selected was the Skoda Superb Estate 2.0TDI CR SE; the car had an excellent write up in the motoring press:- (www.whatcar.com/skoda/superb/estate/review/) and for the price, delivered on space, comfort and value, the car suits ideally the needs of our sales rep travelling around the country visiting customers and prospects carrying sample products with him.

Delighted, thank you.

Sandy Lawson, Dynamite Baits, Nottingham

Great service...
I was recommended to Howlett Leasing and I was impressed with the whole experience from start to finish. Stacey is efficient quoting on the exact
vehicle spec I asked for and at the best price. Communication was spot on and the vehicle delivered on time. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stacey to anyone looking for cars or commercial vehicles.

Paul Browne, Kent

Fantastic service from Stacey, when i ordered my car I was told because of the colour/trim choice I made that no vehicles of that colour/spec in UK. It would have to be a factory order and delivery would not be until December, we decided to wait as the colour was fantastic on that model.

So imagine my surprise when Stacey got in contact and said 'your car is ready when do you want it delivered', this was at the end of October a couple of months earlier than expected!

Thank you Stacey for all your hard work, and great service over the past few months, and for getting it for us at a very good price.

We highly recommend you to anyone thinking of getting a new car soon....First Class.

Mr Peter Cole, Manningtree
