handing key

Athol Car Hire has a product called 6 MONTHS+ that bridges the gap between conventional Car and Van Rental and long term Leasing or Contract Hire.

Starting from just £254.75 + vat per month, this product is particularly suitable to Employers taking on new or temporary Staff or perhaps for a New Employee requiring temporary transport to/from work whilst they decide what vehicle to purchase, perhaps waiting to complete their work probation period before making the decision to outright purchase or maybe whilst they await delivery of a new vehicle.

The main advantage of this product is that it provides a hassle free solution to your short term motoring needs which includes everything in the price except the fuel.

Q: What is the minimum duration for Short Term Car or Van Leasing?

A: The minimum period is 6 months.

Q; What is the maximum duration for Short Term Car or Van Leasing?

A; You can continue to extend the hire duration beyond the initial period for a long as you want to, but if you know from the outset how long you require a vehicle, then Athol will make sure you’re offered the right product for your needs. If longer than 18 months, then it may be more cost effective for you to consider Contract Hire packages from us. – see 24-36 month Contract Hire terms or talk to our Showroom Sales Team at the Dealership.
