Branding the vehicle
Many builders use their vehicle as a cost effective way to promote their business. This can range from a simple logo and contact details on the side or rear of the vehicle to a full wrap using company colours and branding. Specialist companies carry out this work and, if you lease your van through a major leasing company, they can organise this as part of the process.
“Your vehicle is a mobile billboard, seen by many people in your daily journeys (and when parked up). It makes sense to maximise the benefits of this, so having you company identity prominently displayed, along with key messages, emphasises your professionalism. And of course, your reputation and quality of work mirrors your vehicle”
Vehicle fit out
To carry tools and equipment in the safest and most space efficient way can require some additional racking and it’s really important to get this right as it comes in all shapes and sizes. Again, your leasing company can organise this for you to make sure you make the right choices and have the support of experts in this area.
“Many of the vehicles we supply are customised to fit the essential needs of the companies and artisans we supply. By having a well-laid out van, you minimise loss of materials and improve efficiencies – now, where did I put that?: damage to tools, materials and the vehicle itself, and demonstrates your care towards the high level of service you provide to your clients”
What else do I need to know about van leasing?
Contract hire is the most popular form of leasing. You select the length of the lease and the annual mileage you expect to complete and the leasing company will build this into a single monthly rental. You can also add other products and services into this monthly amount like servicing and maintenance cover, breakdown and insurance. You never own the vehicle so you hand it back at the end of the lease without the hassle of trying to sell it on the unpredictable used vehicle market. For more information on contract hire, read our article ‘What is Contract Hire?’.
“Contract hire simplifies your daily tasks – by ensuring the vehicle is fit-for-purpose for your jobs, allow you to concentrate on your business. Within our contract hire packages we can include the vehicle and the fit-out within it, your branding: the maintenance and tyres for the vehicle: safety items such as licence checking; telematics, even the insurance of the vehicle - and all for a fixed monthly amount!”
