So, you want to lease your next car. You’ve seen Harry down the road caning about in his M140i and know he’s on an apprentice wage. You want a bit of that action. But where do you find these weapons for peanuts?
My previous two cars have been leased, for cheaper than you could ever purchase them. No maintenance, full warranty, a nice easy life. Sure, leasing isn’t for everyone. Its not for those who want to heavily modify your car, nor is it for those who want something to sell at the end. But its a hassle free way to get in something brand new and otherwise unobtainable.
So join me as I share my experience in hunting down the most awesome deals on the market. **Disclaimer** All information provided is based on personal opinion, and there is NO paid sponsorship or affiliation with any of the mentioned companies.
you what is up guys welcome back to ride with me today I'm gonna be talking about car leasing or personal contract hire now the reason I'm getting behind this is because my previous two cars I'm not ashamed to say have been leased the cut price 300 and the golf GTE both on lease both very very good deals that I've sourced and often people come to me asking me about where I get the lease deals from especially after I've done videos in the past about tips on getting cheaper car insurance for young drivers and this is the same sort of thing so I mean there's a lot of deals out there's a lot of different companies that deal with leasing and there's a lot of good deals to be had on especially on high-performance cars cars that you think are probably not very obtainable often when you see people driving around in these high-end vehicles they tend to be leased it's nothing necessary to be ashamed of it's your preference at the end of the day do you want at least you want to buy outright do you want to finance everyone's got different methods of doing these things it depends what sort of car you want it depends how you want to obtain it the price that you've got apply etc etc a few benefits of leasing I mean you get a brand new car which is great you I mean if you get it for a main dealer it'll be a place of picking it up at the dealer as if it's a brand-new car or if you get it for a broker or somewhere they'll deliver it to your door also another great thing about leasing is really you don't incur many maintenance costs because an MOT doesn't have to be done for the first three years of ownership so if you have a two or three year lease they have to worry about that in terms of servicing servicing you don't necessarily have to do depending on whether your car is on a long life service schedule or not the last two cars I've owned have been on long life service which basically means that I don't have to service them within two years or certain amount of miles now my contract is two years and it's less mileage than that so I won't have to service the car before I give it back ever so literally all I'm worried about is insurance and feel amazed it there's no worries apart from maybe if you need new tires if you go hooning that's pretty much all you're gonna have to worry about but in terms of the car itself you tend to be able to get some good deals that are cars that would definitely be an unobtainable and finance so that's what we're gonna have a look at today where I've sourced my previous two deals so just to give you a bit of context my GTD was 256 plan a month no deposit and my cup of 300 which is completely specs out effectively most options available around the car 350 a month no deposit so I'm going to show you where I got those deals and also to show you where I look to check for new deals for my next vehicle if that's the route I choose to go down let's jump into it so the first website I'm going to talk to you about today is cars 2 by Dakota UK now this website is fantastic for comparing lease deals across the UK from various different websites and brokers and this goes for not only leasing but also purchasing new cars as well but I found this is a great comparison site and it's easy to walk down to what cars you specifically want so let's go to personal racing and it'll just give you a brief search to select make and model also at the bottom here there will be lots of lease deals that come out with the best and most popular lease deals currently so at the moment you can see there's at least steel here for an a 250 AMG line which 236 pound 62 a month on a 24 month contracts 5000 per annum with a 20 29 29 initial payment and there's a few different ones on the year if you go through it'll show you some very popular deals that come up at the moment on different websites with the like of the website present as well now if we just go for just a random car and let's say I know there's some good deals at the moment on the Mercedes a35 the new version so let's do that so we go to Mercedes a-class so it's going to bring up basically all models of this car from all across the different websites that they have on the comparison so it'll do it start it price low to high monthly and it will show you the initial payment the actual mileage and the term and the admin fee that you have to pay as part of the deal as well so that brings me nicely onto the first website that I actually want to show you of some people that I personally recommend again this is not sponsored or affiliation anything like that is she's just companies that I've dealt with personally so central vehicle leasing naturally least me my Golf GTD which you've seen in previous videos and the price that I got off of them was bringing it was 256 pound a month with no deposit and that was a really good deal now this company if you do sign up so their weekly or monthly newsletter they do send you in via email lots of deals like for example this Audi a5 is on screen at the moment a 42 FSI black edition I received an email from the guy who dealt with me through central vehicle leasing with lots of quotes for that particular car we've no deposit etc on this particular one it's showing 215 ninety-nine a month with 3000 initial deposit but they do quote for no deposit or lower deposit deals as well obviously the personal higher monthly payment just goes up so it's a very good website very flexible there's lots and lots of offers and they often have the lowest price around as you saw and that comparison site cast a barcode UK just a minute ago so there's a few offers that they've got here at the moment so you've got a few little cars a road nurse at Leon you've got cash cow for Cougar St line and Mercedes 300d l' 380 399 so you can go and view all special offers and basically it will show you everything that they've got going on and the the personal deposits are usually quite high in this initial section but you can adjust those when you get quotes it depends whether you want to do a high deposit and low monthly payment or a low deposit at higher monthly payment etc etc so there's quite a few different models they have available on here if we keep scrolling until we find something that might be useful to show so at the moment the Cupra deals are still floating around so they've changed it it's no longer the cook for 300 it's now the Cupra 290 and there's a few emission regulations they had to deal with so there's a slightly different model and also has the now copper batteries and things like that but the deals are still on on multiple websites so I'm gonna show you a deal one here so it shows you really the savings that can be had so these are the two ones that are on offer at the moment on central vehicle leasing so you've got the site lay on 1.5 TSI Evo and also the 2-liter TSI – Nonnie Cupra which is the new model and it shows you the list price of the vehicle as well as the quoted price so you can see that as a big saving really because 245 99 so you're looking at the same sort of price roughly as like a sort of 1.4 fr or something like that so it shows you the sort of prices that you save on here as well so if you actually go onto a car you can see the the quote and you can change the initial rental for example training for one month so there you go so it now changed it to 292 + 99 per month with no deposit which is again a fantastic deal so these site Cooper deals are still really really good there's some often sometimes deals on the Gulf rs3 etc as well there was a lot of good deals on the audi s4 about a year ago which are now sort of vanished it's quite expensive again but you do get these deals pop up every now and then and people talk about them all over the internet so just keep your eyes peeled so this is just an example of a website that really does offer some great deals sometimes so this is one to look out for another website that I've dealt with personally this is nationwide vehicle contracts now the deals on here aren't usually exceptional but they do do lots of more regular cars quite unquote so my mum actually uses this company and she has just a Peugeot 107 and the prices are really good their maintenance packages are really good so for smaller cars this is usually quite a good website to go for so I mean there's a there's a deal here Fiat 500 1.2 s for a regular car 124 pound 47 a month with a relatively low deposit and again there's lots of lots of options on here to change the maintenance to change the initial rental those sort of things and spec the car out so with any of these lease deals you can spec the car how you wish and they will just quote you accordingly so it's worth having a look to see what your ideal specification is the spec on my Leon Cupra 300 is actually pretty high specifications I put loads of options on it and that ups the price by about 90 pounds a month on the initial the cost that I was quoted but you know I wanted one that was pretty much fully loaded so that's the price you pay so that leads me on nicely to IMG say Warrington which is a popular dealer that has the set low and Cooper deals now they often I mentioned on the forums and things like that because they often have these deals on so this is kind of very similar to the deal that we saw on central vehicle leasing the difference between going through an actual main dealer or IMG say at Warrington and going through one of these websites such as central vehicle leasing is it's a different experience in terms of pickups so central vehicle leasing is a company that will actually spec the car for you order it and then it will just be delivered to your home when it's ready whereas something like IMG sia is an actual car dealership it's a main set dealer and it will be basically the same sort of experience is buying a car you'll have to go and pick it up from said dealer it depends what you prefer it different depends what's more convenient and but it's very similar similar experience so when you actually lease to remain here it is a lot more like buying the actual car so not only that but it's also worth looking on the manufacturer websites themselves in the offers section so I'm on the BMW offers section on their main website at the moment and you can see there are some personal contract hire sections that show the lease deals that are currently on through BMW themselves so currently there is a good deal on the BMW m1 for ti5 dog which is a very well sought-after car so you can see here the list price of this car is thirty six thousand five fifty which is a few thousand more than my Cooper was after all the spec so you can see here the initial mentor in the monthly rental so you can see really is it's quite a low price to be paying for such a car considering when you buy one the actual depreciation will probably be similar to what you're playing over the course of the two to three year period in this case it's a four year term but some some websites will be will change things accordingly so you can see as I change it here it will change the monthly rental price they want a higher monthly rental for a shorter term but some websites will have different deals now there's one last website that I want to mention which you might not think of and that is hot to UK deals now this website is synonymous with just basically shoppers going to find the best deals across any website or any retailer now if you just type in the words lease on this website you often stumble across quite a few interesting car lease deals and it shows you the overall price that you'll be paying over the few years that you rent the car so for example there's one here it's Mercedes Benz C 200 AMG line 269 panamath lease plan 360 pound a mean so basically shows you what the deals are where to find them so we're on to a new site which I've seen before called manche policing this is one of the one of the websites that has a lot of these deals similar to yes leased or cutting UK in places like that so they have often on the front page the best deals that I have going available so you can see here there's a no deposit deal on asset loan 1.5 tier sorry Evo 149 96 with no deposit which is really a very very low price for a car that he's effectively brand new nice and reliable so this is a lot a lot of the reason people decide to lease because it's known if snow fast you know you have the car for two years and then you send it back so scrolling down it shows you kind of what you'll be spending over the course of the two or three or four year periods so it often works out a lot cheaper than what the depreciation would be if you was to buy the car brand new now of course you could go and buy a car slightly used you know secondhand it's been used for a year it's a few thousand miles on and most of the depreciation would have already happened but a lot of people do like to have a brand new car so you can see here that central vehicle leasing deal I was talking about with the a5 Black Edition is on here so that is a good deal that people are picking up on very good price you can add the auto box for 10 pound a month so obviously these are people who have also been receiving the update emails from that website so I'd highly recommend going and checking out central vehicle leasing because they are one of the ones that crop up very very often if not then it costs to buy Dakota UK is probably the best place to actually search for these deals and as I say you'll have a few of these names pop up very often you'll be able to go and check them out and see what the best deal is for you so it's great to know what car you want but of course you can see what the latest deals are as well especially if you go to a website like Hot Deals Lakota UK sorry hot UK deals to coat UK where you will find a lot of the different offers that are available currently also this is a car that comes up very often at the moment Astra 1.60 elite now the elite is like the fully loaded model which is quite good so if you're after a slightly cheap car 119 panel mount for 24 months with 1,000 pound deposit so this is one I see often on nationwide vehicle contracts and something that comes up a lot moment but as the time of year changes you find the type of cars change very often you know as I said we've had lots of deals on the go file before the s4 etcetera the current ones really are the site layout cobra the a35 and the other lay ons Astra and at the moment the a5 Sportback but that is obviously subject to change these things only hang around for a very short period of time so it's great to keep checking back you know I've still got another sort of eight nine months with my Cooper 300 and I'm already looking around at what deals are available because the lead time on new cars sort of tends to be three to four months maybe more depending on the car the manufacturer so the best thing to do is to shop around and just try and snag the best deal possible when it comes up which is what I've done for my previous two cars the Gulf and the cook for 300 so best of luck guys finding exactly what you're after and I will see you in the next video
