Running a successful business is tough enough, without having to worry about keeping your fleet of company cars and vans on the road.
If you're a small to medium-sized enterprise, it's unlikely your business has a dedicated vehicle fleet manager. This means the responsibility falls with somebody already juggling the demands of a full-time job. Even dedicated fleet managers require support in keeping their vehicles running smoothly, not to mention conforming to regulatory requirements.
Leasing your business vehicles with an added maintenance package gives you more time to focus on building a profitable company. It also means you and your employees can showcase your business in brand new vehicles, which are often equipped with the latest safety technology.
There's no need to put all the work on one person - at Hitachi Capital, we can provide you with a dedicated account manager to help manage your vehicle fleet - leaving you to focus on driving your business forward.
Benefits of business contract hire
Many businesses still feel like owning their vehicles is the best option, but there is an alternative. Rather than tying up large sums of capital in depreciating assets, you can lease your vehicle fleets with a low initial outlay and fixed monthly payments for easy budgeting.
Furthermore, VAT registered businesses can enjoy tax benefits when choosing business contract hire. You can claim back up to 50% of the VAT if the vehicles are used for both business and personal use. If you are using your vehicle fleet strictly for business, you could claim back up to 100% of the VAT.
By leasing your business fleet, you and your staff can continuously drive the newest vehicles, often featuring the latest safety features, enhancing your company's reputation and helping to keep your employees safe.
All this without having to worry about depreciation - as Hitachi Capital owns the vehicles, we also take on the risks associated with residual values and disposals.
Why lease with Hitachi Capital?
Whether you need a business-critical van, or company cars for your teams, our experts will work with you to provide a flexible fleet leasing option, tailored to your needs.
Leasing your car and van fleets not only gives you access to newer, often safer, vehicles. It also means you have access to a named, dedicated account manager who can provide detailed insights on your fleet, including cost, efficiency and performance.
Furthermore, if your business has environmental objectives to meet, Hitachi Capital offers a wide range of the newest and greenest vehicles, which can help you to achieve those targets. Thanks to our strong relationship with manufacturers, we can also offer some exclusive deals that might no be available on the high street. And when you've picked your vehicle, we'll even deliver it to you.
We have extensive experience providing business leasing options for companies of various sizes. Our existing clients include Hendra and DB Schenker Rail UK, so you know your business is in safe hands with us.

Electric vans: the future of light commercial vehicles?
So far, the vast majority of electric vehicles to have come onto our roads have been cars. But, with battery capacity growing and efficiency improving, electricity is becoming a more realistic fuel for vans as well.
