Ford Contract Hire

One of the finance solutions available through Ford Lease is Ford Contract Hire.

How it works

This provides an alternative to vehicle ownership - you pay an advance rental followed by fixed monthly rentals - at the end of the agreement, you simply return the vehicle to us.

  • Ford Contract Hire from Ford Lease is available to business users only.
  • You pay an advance rental - usually a minimum of one month. This is then followed by a series of monthly rentals over a typical term of 24-48 months. You will not own the vehicle at the end of this agreement.
  • At the end of your agreement, the vehicle is simply returned to Ford Lease. Further charges may be required subject to the condition of the vehicle and mileage.
  • For further peace of mind, servicing and maintenance packages can be added to your contract at extra cost.
  • Rentals exclude VAT and annual mileage would usually be 10,000 miles. We can however provide a tailored quote specifically for your business needs should a different mileage band be preferred.
  • It may be possible for VAT registered businesses to reclaim all or part of the VAT element of the monthly rental

Ford Leasing - Frequently Asked Questions

How does Ford Lease work?

Ford Lease is ideal for businesses that rely upon the efficient use of their cash flow as it makes your business vehicles simple to budget for. It’s a fixed yet flexible rental lease that allows you to select the vehicle (or vehicles) that your organisation needs.

There are two finance options available through Ford Lease: Ford Contract Hire and Ford Finance Lease.

Both options require an advance rental followed by fixed monthly payments for a term length that suits your requirements, typically between 24 and 60 months. With Ford Contract Hire, you simply return the vehicle at the end of the term whilst with Ford Finance Lease you'll have three options at the end of the agreement:

  • Sell the vehicle on behalf of Ford Lease to a third party
  • Agree a part exchange price with your Ford Dealer and the Dealer purchases the vehicle from Ford Lease.
  • Ford Lease will return 100% of the sale proceeds to you less any fees associated with the vehicle sale.

Terms and conditions apply. Please ask your local Gates dealership for more information.

What does my agreement include?

There are a host of benefits available when you choose Ford Lease. They include:

  • Road fund licence for the duration of the term
  • No admin fee for contract amendments
  • One call number for driver support services

Maintenance packages are also available at additional cost covering scheduled servicing, maintenance and repair and unlimited like-for-like tyre replacement and puncture repairs.

What happens at the end of my agreement?

Once the agreement has ended, you can choose to do one of two things:

  • Sell the vehicle to a third party on behalf of Ford Lease.
  • Agree a part-exchange price with us, after which point we will purchase the vehicle from you.

A balloon option is also available, enabling you to reduce the cost of your monthly rentals by making a final payment at the end of the term.
