Volkswagen allows customers to lease vans online


Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Volkswagen Financial Services UK (VWFS) have launched a new digital platform that allows customers to lease vans on contract hire online.

'Contract Hire Direct' lets customers pick their model and calculate a suitable finance quote online for stock vehicles. They can then speak to a member of the Contract Hire team to place an order. Once finance is approved, the customer can select a Van Centre for collection or arrange delivery direct to their door.

Users will be able to search for vehicles and configure quotes based on the term, mileage, deposit and maintenance package.

Funding is directly with the manufacturer to give peace of mind and the partnership between the Volkswagen Group Brands and VWFS ensures customers are provided with competitive rates and unbeatable service.

Sarah Cox, Head of Marketing for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “The typical customer journey has changed and we are excited to be launching this new system via our award-winning website to keep up with the demand. As part of our Working With You promise, we’re committed to evolving our services to meet the ever-changing needs and requirements of the modern-day business, and we would expect to see more direct sales options coming on line in future.”
