How to compare offers

Are you looking for a good operational leasing deal? The best proposal isn't always the cheapest. It is important to compare, in detail, the different offers and to make sure that you are making the right choice.

To help you compare the various offers you have found on the market, below you will find a guide with all the points to be borne in mind.

 

Firstly, make sure that it is:

  • The same car (make, model, engine capacity, transmission type, fuel type and optional equipment)
  • The same contract duration
  • The same number of kilometres contracted
 

It is also important to clarify:

Whether it will be necessary to make a down payment. If it is, state the amounts. Then confirm the monthly fees and check whether they include VAT (Value-added Tax).

In addition, you must make sure that you are comparing offers that ensure exactly the same services.

For example, an offer seems very attractive to you, but when you look at it closely, you see that car insurance is not included or the replacement vehicle in the event of a breakdown. If these are things you rate highly, you must ensure that they are included in the operational leasing service you hire.

Check if all offers include the services below and make sure you compare them in a fair and comparable manner. Only in this way can you choose the best operational leasing offer for your company.

 

Contract duration

The minimum term of a operational leasing contract is 12 months. Is generally up to 36 or 48 months in duration, however a longer duration can be defined.

 

Number of kilometres contracted

You also must confirm the supplement value per km traveled more and deduction per km traveled less.

 

Contract opening expenses exemption

Confirm that there will be no charge for the opening contract process.

 

Down payment

Check that the proposals you are reviewing require a down payment.

 

Maintenance

Preventive maintenance, scheduled and that follows the revision plan indicated by the manufacturer, and corrective maintenance, for all unforeseen repairs should be included.

 

Insurance - Own damage and deductible

Check if the insurance is included and what is your deductible. Besides that confirm if it includes civil liability, protection of the driver and occupants and isolated glass breakage.

 

Roadside assistance

It must be available whenever requested and from Km 0, both nationally and internationally, including breakdowns, towing and occupants repatriation.

 

Replacement vehicle

In case of accident, repairs, breakdowns, overhauls, theft or robbery. You should also check the category and number of available days with a replacement car.

 

Tyres replacement

Check the number of tyres contracted. Ideally, their replacement should be unlimited. Also check if the respective alignments and calibrations are included, as well as the repair of punctures.

 

IUC (road tax)

Confirm if the payment and legally required documentation for the car circulation are included.

 

Reconditioning insurance

Protection, upon termination of the agreement, of any costs associated with damage that are not the result of normal use of the car. This way, you avoid surprises at the end of the contract.

 

Total premium guarantee

Damage caused or increased in the vehicle owing to negligent use by the driver.
