Contract Hire and Leasing

Purchasing business vehicles outright can put a significant dent in your company’s capital, especially when you have a large fleet of vehicles to manage. And because cash flow is vital to your business, contract hire vehicles may be the best option for you. A great way of spreading the cost of your assets, the right business car lease deal will provide you with a funding option that offers less risk, and is easy to manage.

CLM provides a complete vehicle leasing package, so whether you require fleet vehicles at a reasonable cost, business car lease deals that are tailored specifically to your business, support with administration or a completely outsourced business fleet management solution – our team of experts can help.

Contract Hire Cars for Your Fleet

Whatever fleet vehicles you’re looking for, and whatever budget you have, our team will be on hand to support you when it comes to your business car contract hire needs. As market-leading contract car hire providers, we will offer you a complete fleet vehicle leasing and management solution, at a competitive rate.

Finding the Best Rates for Your Car Lease Contracts

Our market-leading Smartpanel Funding solution uses individual fleet vehicle lease tendering from competing contract hire and leasing suppliers to provide you with the lowest possible contract hire rates.

Smartpanel incorporates a carefully selected panel of competitive fleet vehicle leasing suppliers and a tender process for each new vehicle, which creates competition between the panel members and leads to the lowest rentals being submitted.

We typically work with three or four contract hire providers for each client, selecting the most competitive quote for each new car ordered to ensure the best possible rental rates – great news for companies that are looking to cut the cost of their business fleet management processes and maintain their profitability.

This ensures you enjoy optimum rentals that will not suffer from ‘rental creep’ over time, as well as providing the management of legacy suppliers without conflict of interest.

Used in this way, Smartpanel has saved many tens of thousands of pounds in acquisition costs for our clients.

Benefit From Our Buying Power and Leasing Company Management

In addition, as an independent company with no ties or allegiance to any one manufacturer or dealer group, we can provide a centralised sourcing service to suit your fleet management needs. With a network of preferred suppliers across all UK franchises, you will also benefit from our buying power, based on the purchase of thousands of new vehicles each year.

With our panel funding system, we handle all the administrative burden associated with the service to allow you to concentrate on core activities.

We act as the fleet manager to manage the whole competitive tendering process, centralising all day-to-day fleet administration and driver contact for both the legacy fleet and the new fleet going forwards. We also provide full invoice validation and management, together with consolidated monthly reporting and accounting.

Fully Outsourced Fleet Management Services

Other benefits include a full range of vehicle fleet management services that you can select from our comprehensive range, to support your contract hire vehicle fleet. These include accident management, fuel card monitoring, strategic fleet management reporting, vehicle logistics management and maintenance management for pay-on-use contracts, to extract further savings across the fleet.

As fleet management and leasing experts, we can offer your company the support required to cut costs and minimise administration when it comes to your fleet leasing responsibilities. Contact our team for more information on how we can save you money on business vehicle contract hire.
