About Short Car Leases

Short Car Leases

We don’t claim to say that Short Car Leases is a new way of doing vehicle contract hire, we don’t claim to be the first, but what we try and offer is choice. Not just choice in short term vehicles, but even down to the contract itself.

Short Car Leases offers two types of contract, flexi and fixed. You may find that only one type of contract is suitable to you and your business needs, but we are here to help you make the right choice.

Short Car Leases is part of Cocoon Vehicles, established in 2007 by ex-dealer management hoping to make a difference to the way customers were treated. Since then thousands of vehicles have been delivered, hundreds of customers happy and the company still happily trading with years of experience under the belt.

So, how are we different to other providers?

  • Short Term Flexible Leasing – Yep, 28 days and above – Hand back when you like!
  • Short Term Fixed Leasing – 6 to 18 months on a wide range of cars and vans.
  • Long Term Leasing – Of course we can still offer traditional Long Term Leasing
  • Vehicle Purchasing – Cut out the dealer and get a quote from us! You maybe surprised!
  • Ex-Fleet/Ex-Rental Cars for sale – We look after our cars, so grab a bargain by buying ex-fleet

We offer a few more services on top, so take a look around the website and see what we can do to change your opinion of the motortrade.

Short Term Flexible Leasing

For Cars (and Vans) 28 days and over, then give us a call on 0330 330 9425 and quote ~Flexible Leasing~

Most vehicles (when in stock) can be delivered the very next (working) day. So we can move pretty quick, all we ask is that we have a credit line in place.

When you have done with the vehicle, so long as you have agreed to the terms of the contract, can be off hired and collected within 1-2 working days, so the contract is very flexible and much cheaper than daily rental.

With cars from just 28 days and our best prices on 90 days minimum commitment, flexible car leasing offers a service that can be tailored around your lifestyle or business commitments, changing with customer demand or even the weather.

Most of the vehicles we provide on Flexible, has maintenance included for the duration of the contract. So its as simple as provide the fuel and the insurance and you are good to go.

What do you need to do next…

  • Choose your vehicle
  • Choose your monthly mileage allowance
  • Choose a minimum term
  • Apply for a credit line

After the Minimum Term, just give us 28 days notice to cancel or swap your vehicle for another (Doc Fee’s and Delivery Costs may be payable).

Short Term Fixed Contracts

If you know how long you require the vehicle for, then Short Term Fixed Contracts maybe the way to go. Most vehicles are cheaper than Flexible, however the downsides are simple. The majority of the vehicles have already been ordered with the manufacturer and not always in stock, so what you order may not arrive for a week or two.

However, this is a fantastic way of changing your car every 6 months, every 9 months or every 12 months. We have customers who like to have a convertible for the summer and a 4×4 for the winter periods. We have others who like to swap their sales consultants cars every 6 months to refresh the plate. Others just find it a more convenient way of leasing.

When taking a short term contract, you must remember that you cannot end the vehicle early without paying a penalty, you can’t even extend the contract at the end. The maximum amount of miles you can do is 2000 so if you do go higher than this, you may want to consider flexible leasing.

What do you need to do next…

  • Choose your car (Vehicle determines contract length)
  • Choose your mileage
  • Select if you want maintenance or not
  • Apply for a credit line

Non-Status Leasing / New Business Start-up’s

Non-Status Car Leasing has become very popular since the credit crunch, more and more mainstream funders want to see positive results from a business or individual. This isn’t always possible for many reasons such as overseas parent company, the way the business is structured financially or maybe its a new start.

We can help in many of these situations, so just ask. 60% of our applications are accepted on standard terms by providing the required paperwork. Even if its a non-standard contract we may ask for a bond, guarantee’s, higher initial payment or even a mixture of all three of these. At the end of the day we are letting a vehicle go out for a small percentage of the vehicles worth.
