Athol Garage provide Contract Hire facilities as an easy cost effective way to fund private or business motor vehicles. Rather than purchasing outright you can rent it long term which makes it easier to budget and can often save you money.
For a fixed monthly payment you can lease brand new Nissan Cars and vans without having to find the initial capital to purchase them. At the end of the contact you simply hand the vehicle back so that you never have the hassle of selling it or the risk of it’s eventual residual/disposal value.
Typically, contact hire is for a fixed term between three and four years with an option to include routine annual Service Maintenance
Our Sale Team will listen to and discuss your vehicle type & mileage requirements with you to determine the best Nissan vehicle & contract term on offer within your budget.
