How it works

Ford Contract Hire is a fixed term operating lease. You simply make an initial payment followed by fixed monthly rentals for the duration of the agreement.

  1. Select the Ford you want.
  2. Choose the hire period that's right for you and your business (between 24 and 60 months).
  3. Choose your maintenance option.
  4. Choose your annual mileage.
  5. Your Ford Dealer will then be able to calculate your initial payment and fixed monthly rental.
  6. At the end of the agreement, simply return the vehicle to us, take out a new Ford Contract Hire agreement and collect the latest model.*
* Further costs may apply subject to mileage and condition.

Service, maintenance and repair

Ford Lease offers a maintenance plan that can be included with your Ford Contract Hire agreement for a fixed monthly fee*.

This fee covers your vehicle for:

  • Routine servicing, maintenance and repairs.
  • Tyre repair and replacement.~
  • Exhausts.
  • Batteries.
  • MOTs (where applicable).
VAT registered businesses may be able to recover the VAT charged on service, maintenance and repair.

* Subject to fair wear and tear
~ Upgrades and winter tyres excluded
Service, maintenance and repair plans are not available with Ford Acquire or Finance Lease.
You should always seek independent professional advice in relation to taxation and VAT issues. Restrictions apply.

Value added services

These value added services are only available with your Ford Contract Hire product

Flexible Contract Management:

  • Agreement rescheduling: The term and mileage of your agreement can be amended should your original business requirements change.
  • Early settlement: If you wish to return the vehicle earlier than the agreed date then the agreement may be ended upon payment of 50% of the outstanding rentals, subject to at least 12 months of the agreement having been completed.
  • Excess mileage: If you have two or more Ford Lease vehicles on contract hire then our pooled mileage facility could be of help, allowing you to offset excess mileage on one vehicle with an 'under mileage' vehicle on another agreement.
Fair wear and tear
Fair wear and tear is the policy adopted by Ford Lease and supported by the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) to describe the condition of a vehicle, which is considered acceptable and appropriate given its age and mileage at the end of the agreement. Ford Lease will only charge for damaged or missing items in excess of this 'fair wear and tear' policy.
