Testimonials

Over the past ten years Howlett's have arranged the supply and finance for 10 of our company cars and three commercial vehicles. You have provided a first class personal service, always listening to our needs and doing your utmost to deliver those requirements.

I have no hesitation in recommending Howlett Leasing.

S Burgess, Lonsdale Metal Co Ltd, London

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.

Mr Faiers, Sudbury

I cannot recommend Stacey highly enough. I was told about her from our local garage and cannot fault the service she provided. She found a great deal for me on the car I wanted. I'm so pleased with it. Thank you Stacey.

Rachel Mozley, Grantham

I have now had 3 cars from from Howlett Leasing, and had excellent service. Stacey is very patient and listens to what you want and comes up with several options. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to lease from her.

Digital Healthcare have used Howlett Leasing since October 2004. We have always found them to be very competitive on price, friendly and helpful to deal with and excellent at providing the service required in a very short space of time! Having challenged them twice this year I have been extremely pleased with every aspect of the service provided. This being my first experience of arranging new lease vehicles I would recommend Howlett's to anyone.

J Witts, Digital Healthcare, Cambridge

I have just taken delivery of a new Peugeot 208 Allure from Howlett Leasing on a Personal Contract Hire. It is the first time I have ever had a top-of-the-range car, and still trying to master everything on the touch-screen.

Am delighted with the car, and thank you to Stacey who was so patient with me as I changed my mind again and again, then didn't send the right forms, but we got there in the end. Nothing was too much trouble for Stacey as she re-calculated three times, but it was all worth it in the end.

Mr Eric Britt, Huntingdon, Cambs

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

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

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.
