How to pick a used car lease deal
There’s a common myth in the UK. That myth is that you can’t lease a used car. Well, we’re here to tell you that’s untrue, and we specialise in leasing used cars throughout the UK. In some aspects, leasing a used car is better than leasing a new car.
Secondhand car leasing is a fantastic way to finance a car for a short time period, so you can keep your car fresh by switching it up every few years, and you can drive a car that you might not be able to afford to buy.
Plus, we have used cars from various manufacturers, such as budget-friendly options like Toyota to more premium choices from the likes of Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

Used car leasing is the same as new car leasing, except the vehicle is older and you don’t have to wait as long for the car, but you still have the same contractual agreement.
Leasing a used car will save you more money on the overall least cost, and extra bonuses like insurance and tax.
Zero Deposit Car Leasing’s used vehicles can be ex-fleet and rental cars, which allow us to give our customers even bigger discounts.
These cars are all less than four years old and must meet a strict 124-point check before they are delivered anywhere in the UK.
This allows every single vehicle to meet the very high standards our aftersales team place on vehicle preparations for safe car leasing.
We offer two types of leasing, which are:
1. Personal contract purchase (PCP) – our most popular form of leasing, pay your monthly payments over your contract period and hand your car back at the end.
2. Personal Contract Hire (PCH) – similar to PCP, but you have the option to pay a balloon payment and own the car at the end of the lease contract.
We also offer business lease deals and personal lease deals so that you can get a used car for business or pleasure.
