No deposit leasing is a way to lease a van without having to pay a deposit, so you don’t need to save up large amounts of cash prior to your arrangement.
Pay a monthly fee and use the van for the duration of your contract. Depending on your agreement, you’ll be able to pay a balloon payment at the end of your contract and own it, or hand it back and get another one.
Here’s what you need to do:
There are two types of leasing when it comes to vans, business and personal. Business leasing is where you lease the van through a company, and personal leasing is where you lease it through yourself.
There isn’t much difference, but business leases come with tax benefits, which means it is often cheaper than personal leasing. With either, you can choose whether to hand the van back or buy it at the end of your agreement.
Can I lease a van with bad credit?

Can you claim van lease payments on a tax return?
Yes, you can claim the cost of van rental as an expense when filing your tax return. Your rental payments can be a tax-deductible expense.
Do lease vans come with insurance?
Our lease vans don't come with insurance, so you'll have to get an insurance deal before you drive your van.
Do you need good credit to lease a van?
As with any finance agreement, good credit helps. Poor credit doesn't mean you can't lease a van, but your monthly payments will be more.

How much does it cost to lease a van?
It depends on various factors, such as your credit rating and the price of the van. Your lease agreement will also contribute because you can claim 50% VAT back on personal contract purchase agreements.
Is it better to lease or buy a van?
If you plan on keeping the van, you should consider buying. However, if you want to switch the van then leasing is a great option. Business van leasing is popular because business owners don't have to worry about losing a valuable business asset if the van breaks.
