Why Use a Hired Car?

Posted on by Whitgift Hire Team

Family or Personal Car

Leasing vs. Buying

Some of the advantages of car hire apply more to the business end of car leasing, either for staff cars or commercial vehicle leasing. However, these can also apply to personal car hire, as the ease of mind brought about by paying a set amount every month, with no nasty surprises, can bring great peace of mind.

When leasing, remember that usually everything, bar the petrol, is included in the hire cost – there are no unexpected repair bills. This allows for accurate budgeting over the hire period, with any extra costs agreed in advance so as not to be a surprise.

Some specialist vehicle hire companies, such as Whitgift Hire, offer unlimited mileage and breakdown assistance within the hire price, providing a convenient and cost-effective option.


Commercial Vehicle

Leasing vs. Buying

Leasing a commercial vehicle has a number of advantages, not least of which is the fixed cost, with no eye-watering extras. All repairs are the responsibility of the hire company. The included insurance, breakdown cover, and road tax means all you need to worry about is the petrol.

The option of contract hire is one that may be advantageous to many businesses, allowing for the leasing of a vehicle or number of vehicles for a set period. This cuts out the need to purchase cars and vans outright, with 24-hour breakdown cover and unlimited mileage offers potentially proving lucrative to many companies.


Holiday Transport

Car Hire vs. Public Transport?

When it comes to holidaying, the car hire concept is a no-brainer. When arriving at the airport, simply finding the car hire agency and getting the keys is takes away all of the stress of getting packed onto the airport bus.

Trying to find the right public transport to get to your destination while lugging bags and baggage is no joke. And being stuck to the close environs of your holiday home takes a lot of the joy from the holiday experience

With a holiday car hire, you can set your pace, explore the area, and have a place to store your possessions while out enjoying yourself. London can be an expensive city to travel round on the underground, while a hired vehicle allows you to explore the surrounding regions that have plenty to offer.
