More and more people are searching for practical options to be able to save money without sacrificing comfort and style. Even with a steady source of income, people are still always on the lookout for smart ways to minimise their expenses and one of the strategies to serve this purpose that’s also gaining popularity is van leasing. But is leasing a vehicle really a more practical investment compared to purchasing your own vehicle? Here are basic explanations of this option’s edge over owning a vehicle.
1. When it comes to price, leasing a vehicle surely beats buying a brand new car. The difference in value is from 30 to 55% which is definitely a substantial amount that you may allocate to other basic necessities. Payments are more manageable and have consistent value, whatever marque you may choose. Van leasing is definitely a more viable option for business owners needing a vehicle or an entire fleet of vehicles for operation purposes.
2. Upgrading is easier to do. Why? A van, no matter how flawless it is when you get it, will depreciate in actual and aesthetic value over time. If you own it, you’re stuck with it until you decide to put it up for sale, naturally at a much lower price since most vehicles (with the exception of vintage cars that have been maintained by experts) really do not increase in value. But if you’re just leasing it, after the period of use provided by the contract (which is typically three to four years) you can easily transition to a vehicle model that will suit your needs and style preference. You have a wide range of options. Name your model and you can have it for the period that you need it.
3. It’s also less demanding and stressful to just lease a vehicle. Road tax, maintenance (such as exhaust and tire replacements) and other usual concerns that most car owners have to be attentively responsible for are often included in the lease contract or package. Also, the package includes routine services to make sure that the vehicle is in tip-top form throughout your use – no shopping around for reliable mechanics to handle repairs which can be a time-consuming and frustrating trial and error process.
4. If you end up falling in love with the vehicle after years of use (something that often happens to a lot of people), many vehicle leasing companies have a flexible provision for clients who want to own the vehicle at the end of the lease.
