Getting the Right Advice

Leasing a minibus for your college or university can initially feel like a daunting task. However, here at VanLease UK our business philosophy is to offer a consultative approach to all prospective clients, so that we can move through the process together and achieve the most pragmatic solution.

We do also recognise that there are varying levels of experience within the different colleges and universities that contact us. For example, if your college or university is currently leasing a minibus you are probably conversant with the required technical and practical considerations. However, should this be new territory for you we can guide you through the process, for example:

  1. Driving licence requirements – How old must a driver be? What licence do they require?
  2. Vehicle requirements – How many seats do I require? Are conversions for disabled students available?
  3. Health and Safety – When, and how, should the vehicle be maintained?

Getting the Right Quotation

Just from reading the information above, you will note that there are a number of considerations for your new College or University minibus leasing deal. In addition, you will need to prepare the following below, in order for our team to assist you in receiving the right quotation for your new vehicle, including:

  1. Mileage – how many miles will the vehicle be covering each year?
  2. Contract Length – how long do you require the vehicle for, i.e. 2, 3 or 4 years?
  3. Maintenance – do you require a full service and maintenance agreement to include the cost of all servicing, consumables and tyres during the course of the contract?
  4. Options at the end of the contract – will the institution want the option to purchase the vehicle or will the vehicle be returned at the end of the contract?

Once our team at VanLease UK have gathered the information above, they can produce a number of quotations and options which best fit your requirements.

How Can Leasing Help Our College or University?

Modern educational institutions are no more different to businesses in their approach to making cost-efficient solutions which secure a positive future for their stakeholders. While buying a minibus has often been the route forward, budgetary constraints mean that paying upwards of £30,000 for a new vehicle are simply no longer available.

In contrast, contract hire and leasing, offers a more cash-flow efficient process whereby the vehicle is paid for on a monthly basis. If you do opt for a full maintenance contract, this allows you to be covered for all routine servicing, tyres, exhausts and road fund licence for the duration of the contract. As such, you can more accurately forward budget based on this certainty of cost.

At the end of a contract hire contract, you simply return the vehicle and VanLease UK can arrange a new vehicle to arrive in its place. This removes the time consuming process of selling a vehicle and also prevents vehicles being retained outside of their manufacturer warranty.
