Car Leasing FAQs
Once your lease contract comes to an end, all you need to do is hand back the car to the company, who will usually collect it for free! They will check the paperwork, inspect the car for any damage and check the car is within its mileage limit. It is never expected for a lease car to be in brand-new condition at the end of the lease, and wear and tear on the car won’t constitute for damage costs to be paid. If you plan ahead and are taking another deal, you could get your new car delivered at the same time as the other is being collected – avoiding any long waits in between!
Mileage options on the website range from 5'000 annual mileage to 35'000, depending on the car. The differences in mileage will mean a difference in price. Every deal on LeaseLoco is completely unique to you, and you can choose your mileage based on your driving habits and how much you want to pay. If you go over your agreed mileage allowance, you will have additional costs so think carefully about how many miles you will need! But don’t stress amigos! In many situations you can have your contract mileage amended quite easily if you think you would like a higher or lower mileage by calling your leasing company during your lease. Read about how to win on your contract mileage.
While for many of us it is difficult to calculate the specifics of exactly how many miles you are doing every year, be realistic about how many miles you may drive in a year, checking your previous mileage and how many you may drive in the next few years – probably add some extra miles for a safety net too! chicos

So Amigos, when you lease a car, it is the same concept as leasing or renting a property. You will usually pay a deposit or upfront fee and then pay monthly payments for an agreed amount of money for an agreed amount of time. Similar to in a flat where the landlord owns it, but you live in it and when the contract ends you move out – leasing a car is the same. You don’t own the car or buy it at the end of the contract, you give the car back at the end of contract! Just as a flat or house is inspected when you move out, the car will be inspected when you give it back to see if there is any excessive damage. Don’t worry too much about that though, as a lot more falls into general wear and tear than you would think!
As we are the UK's biggest car lease comparison website, we make it super quick and easy for you to filter and compare millions of deals from the UK's leading car leasing companies to best suit your needs. The reason that the deals are so cheap is because you get the best discounts when a broker, funder or dealer takes on a huge pool of cars to get that volume discount and they cannot fulfil that order. So then they cut the prices and you get to benefit from all these discounted cars. At LeaseLoco we compare millions of deals, so you can have the confidence that you’re getting the best deals from us.
Manufacturer’s warranty, road tax & breakdown cover are ALL included in your lease. Not only that, but delivery is completely free. You will get your car delivered straight to your door. And you can make everyone jealous. At no added cost. Your friends, your colleagues, everyone. The only thing you will need to organise yourself is insurance! Every motor on the road in the UK is lawfully required to have insurance and this goes for leased vehicles too! It’s almost the same as insuring a car you have bought, but the biggest difference is that the leasing company will be the registered owner of the car instead of you. The good news is that this means they are responsible for road tax on your car.
If the car is in stock, we would expect delivery to be 2-3 weeks. For factory orders, delivery can vary significantly depending on manufacturer and model and with the current semiconductor chip shortage this is quite fluid at the moment. Lead times can be anything between a couple of months up to 12 months in some instances. As we are a price comparison site, we would always recommend checking specific delivery timescales with our leasing partners, who are the suppliers of the deals, as they will be best placed to confirm this. We've made contacting them direct from the deal page super quick and easy by simply clicking call or message and they will be happy to help.
