Things to Look For When Leasing Your Next Car

Things to Look For When Leasing Your Next Car

Our Leasing Guide

It’s one of those common things with leasing a car – You’re contract term on your vehicle comes to an end and you need to source your next vehicle. We’ve compiled some of the things we think you should be looking out for when finding your next vehicle.

Car Size

When looking around for your next vehicle, make sure the car size is suitable for your needs. Why drive around in an over-sized vehicle if you don’t require it? There are some things you should take into consideration, such as:

  • What will the car be used for?
  • Do you have kids?
  • Do you have pets?
  • What is parking like in your area?


Before you sign up to a lease, try to make an educated guess of your annual mileage allowance, this way you won’t overpay each month if you’re not going to use them all and you won’t be liable to an excess mileage charge at the end of the contract should you underestimate your mileage. Our team is always on hand to assist you with any excess mileage charges and it should be included within your official quote when signing your paperwork.

Certain finance companies may allow you to add miles to your lease and will adjust your monthly rentals accordingly – However, this is at their discretion.


Maintained / Non-Maintained

Leasing gives most drivers the option of paying for a maintained or non-maintained agreement. Those who opt for the maintained deals will generally find that the overall monthly cost goes up slightly, but in turn, they typically get benefits such as:

  • Servicing and MOT included during the contract
  • Replacement parts that would keep the vehicle in good condition (such as brakes, wipers, exhausts etc)
  • Breakdown cover included
  • Extended warranty periods*

Here at Smart Leasing Solutions, we would always recommend a maintained lease plan to save those potential headaches.

Should you opt for a non-maintained vehicle lease, then please be aware that the cost of servicing, maintenance or replacement parts will be your responsibility to keep in line with the manufacturer’s and finance company’s guidelines.
