What is short-term car leasing?

Essentially, our short-term lease and rental system offer fully managed daily rental solutions for various vehicles, including cars, vans and trucks.

What are the benefits of short-term car leasing?

If you’re looking for a flexible rental model with a low initial outlay, then short-term car leasing is most likely the option. With no minimum rental term, we can provide a solution to whatever period of leasing you or your business requires.

Despite this option being budget-friendly, it still provides you with many of the perks available to our longer-term rentals, such as a diversity of mainstream vehicle choices, as well as a comprehensive range of specialist vehicles.

You can also choose to incorporate Motrak Telematics system too. As one of the significant providers of telematics and in-vehicle CCTV in the UK, Motrak specialises in a wide array of fleet tracking solutions for numerous industry areas. This allows you to manage your fleet effectively, with low costs, flexible propositions and an intuitive user interface.

The more general benefits of short-term car leasing on your business are worth noting, too. Besides the low up-front costs, you ensure that your business is using modern, up-to-date vehicles. This is a much safer option than providing staff with second-hand cars, which is often a cost-saving alternative that companies consider.

While second-hand vehicles may be cheaper to purchase outright, leasing a car on a short-term basis can result in lower running costs and an eco-friendlier business model, both of which could see your business save money in the long run.

With fuel costs rising, considering our eStart Zero Emission Vehicle Transition Plan could help your business both economise and reduce its carbon footprint.

Is Litelease the right choice for you?

If you’re looking for something more extensive than a short-term rental but still flexible and budget-friendly, our Litelease option might be the choice for you. This model covers everything from short-term pre-contract plans through to medium-term contracts on a variety of vehicles.

Litelease offers flexible rental terms, ranging from 3, 6, and 12-month agreements. These plans are provided with maximum flexibility and minimal paperwork and fuss while ensuring your business has access to the same array of vehicles but on a more fluid basis and avoiding the commitment of a long-term contract.
