Personal Contract Hire

As the name suggests Personal Contract Hire (also known as personal leasing) is simply contract hire but for individuals. Personal Contract Hire (PCH) is based on a fixed term contract where customers pay an agreed monthly charge for the use of a vehicle for a previously agreed period.

Advantages:

  • Flexible initial payment
  • Fixed term contract
  • Fixed mileage contract
  • Fixed cost motoring
  • Flexible profiles to suit you
  • You only pay for the use of the vehicle
  • At the end of your contract simply hand the vehicle back
  • Option of including maintenance with the contract
  • No depreciation or disposal risk

Disadvantages:

  • Vehicle must be returned in a well maintained condition
  • Early termination can be expensive
  • You must have fully comprehensive vehicle insurance
  • You will never own the vehicle

More Information on Personal Contract Hire:

It benefits customers wishing to eliminate the financial risk associated with disposing of a vehicle. Contracts are usually taken over two, three or four years, providing a high level of flexibility. Some contracts can be formally extended beyond the end of contract date if required. Just ask and we can answer any of your questions regarding extending your contract.

PCH is very similar to business Contract Hire; both are based on a fixed annual mileage agreed on inception of a contract. You will need to decide how many miles you drive each year before quotations can be obtained. Once you have stated how many miles you drive in a year and considered which vehicle you would like to lease a quote can be created for you by one of our sales team.

Regulations with regard to making mileage amendments after contracts are live vary from funder to funder, so it is always better to be as accurate as you can be. If you do exceed the agreed allowance at the end of your contract you will pay an excess mileage charge, which will have been agreed upon prior to signing the finance agreement.

Please remember this when deciding upon you annual mileage. If you are looking to have predictable motoring costs adding maintenance to your monthly payment is easy. Maintenance is there to put your mind at rest should any challenges arise with your vehicle and generally covers servicing, routine maintenance, tyres, exhausts and batteries.

Please note that it is responsibility of the person named on the finance agreement to arrange and pay for fully comprehensive insurance for the vehicle. It is important that the vehicle is returned in accordance with the guidelines set out in the 'Fair Wear and Tear Guide', a copy of which is made available to customers when they are near the end of their PCH agreement.

I would highly recommend Planet Leasing if you are considering leasing a car. From my first conversations with Elliot who found a higher spec Audi A3 at a lower price than my previous car, to the help and assistance through the ordering and delivery process provided by Kirstie and the administration team, their customer care service was exemplary. Calls were always answered promptly and politely and each member of staff did their upmost to answer any query even if the relevant person was not available – a rare quality these days. Thank you all very much for ensuring my new car arrived on time and I will be sending my daughter hopefully very shortly when she passes her test!
