When you take out a personal or business contract hire agreement, you can add a maintenance package for a fixed monthly fee. This will give you complete peace of mind that any unexpected vehicle repair costs you may not have budgeted for, will be covered.

What is included in a vehicle Maintenance Contract?

Maintenance contracts are offered by the finance provider and can vary from policy to policy. Generally, most maintenance contracts include:

  • Routine Servicing (as required by the manufacturer)
  • Mechanic repairs due to fair wear and tear
  • Tyre repair and/or like-for-like replacement (exclusions apply)
  • Batteries
  • Exhausts
  • Breakdown assistance
  • MOT (if applicable) 

If you are interested in taking out a maintenance contract with your lease agreement, we will provide you with a full list of inclusions and exclusions offered by your finance provider.

What is excluded in a vehicle Maintenance Contract?

Typical exclusions include:

  • Repairs or replacements due to driver error or driver induced faults.
  • Repairs due to accident damage
  • Missing or Broken items e.g., Bent Aerials, Missing Hub Cabs
  • Vandalised and Stolen Wheels and/or Tyres
