How Contract Hire Works

At the start of your agreement you choose which Maxi Mover low loader van model is best for your requirement, plus any additional optional extras, then calculate what you annual mileage will be and what term you would like to hire the van for (12 to 60 months). You then pay an advance rental upfront. Your monthly rentals are based on the difference between the initial value of the vehicle and its projected residual value at the end of your agreement. All contract hire payments are plus VAT.

The benefit is only a proportion of the vehicle’s value is repaid, which avoids a large initial expense and keeps monthly payments lower. With a Contract Hire agreement, you can choose from the Full Maintenance with servicing and tyres option or with No Maintenance options.

At the end of the agreement your Maxi Mover will be off hired and subject to an inspection by the finance contract hire provider with potential costly cosmetic interior and exterior repair costs plus any over mileage charges, so it is advisable to return your contract hire vehicle in the original condition or allow for refurbishment costs in your budget.
