Arval explains contract hire

Prevent JS Alert

Contract Hire is an easy and cost effective way to fund your company cars or vans. For a monthly payment, fixed for the duration of the contract you can enjoy the benefits of using a brand new fuel efficient car or van without having to find the cash up front to buy it outright. For your peace of mind Arval can also offer a range of packs that include all the other things you will need to run your vehicle. Check out our products and services page for more detail.

It’s Your contract

The contract itself can be tailored to suit your particular business need with a range of options for both the length of the contract and the annual mileage. The end of contract process couldn’t be simpler for you, as Arval retains ownership of the vehicle during the lease we will simply collect and sell the vehicle, meaning you are fully protected from the risks associated with the second hand market. We will also discuss with you well in advance the best option for your next vehicle.

Take a look at the video below to get a bit more detail on the benefits of business contract hire from Arval.


Contract Hire is an easy and cost effective way to fund your business vehicles. For a fixed monthly payment you can lease brand new cars and vans without having to find the initial capital to purchase them. The contract can be fixed to suit your needs and is typically between three and four years, plus you have the option to include maintenance within the lease because you never own the vehicle. At the end of the contract we will collect it and dispose of it. This means that you never take the risk on the final value or have the hassle of selling it. All you need to decide is which vehicle you want, the length of the contract and the expected mileage - we will look after the rest.


Personal contract hire is an increasingly popular way for an individual to drive the vehicle of their choice for an agreed period of time usually between 2 and 5 years and for a fixed monthly amount that includes road tax and is often far more cost effective than buying the car outright. All servicing and maintenance can be provided, giving you the peace of mind that you won’t have to deal with any costs you haven’t budgeted for. When your contract comes to an end, you can simply return your vehicle or replace it with a new one.

When it’s Time for a Change
We apply the British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association (BVRLA) standard to assess all vehicles returned at the end of a lease, and apply a threshold before applying any charges, so there are no unpleasant surprises. We’ll also talk to you well before the end of your lease to discuss your next vehicle and whether your needs have changed.
