Can Car Leasing Save You Time And Money?

Jun 6, 2008
For people that don't want to purchase a vehicle outright car leasing is a good option. it is a way of financing a vehicle that can work out cheaper per month than purchasing a vehicle and as a result often allows the person leasing a vehicle to afford a vehicle that might ordinarily be out of their budget. It differs from other forms of ownership in that at the end of the agreement the person leasing the car returns the vehicle to the people they have leased it from.

As a result it can be seen as a longer term version of car hire. The period of a car leasing contract typically lasts between a year and three years with the longer term contracts generally costing less per month. The major benefit of this type of agreement is that it enables the person that is leasing the vehicle to keep a close eye on their expenditure. There are a number of agreements that include insurance and maintenance costs so that the person leasing the car does not experience unexpected costs as a result of problems that could result from using a vehicle. This can make a person that leases a vehicle much more confident about their monthly costs and not feel worried about incurring additional costs.

People that utilise car leasing are often able to afford a vehicle that they might not ordinarily be able to afford. This is because when leasing a car you do not have to pay a large down payment as is necessary when purchasing. Also because you do not pay off the value of the car over the period the monthly cost can generally work out less than paying for a vehicle. The person leasing the vehicle does of course not own the vehicle at the end of the contract but rather returns the vehicle to the owner. This in itself has a number of benefits to the person leasing the vehicle.

Firstly they do not have to worry about the depreciation in value of a vehicle and secondly they do not have to concern themselves with selling a vehicle on when they want to upgrade. At the end of the contract with the leasing company the person using the vehicle can simply return the keys and walk away or choose a different vehicle.

There are also numerous benefits for the people that present the car leasing deals. These advantages include that for a person that leases a vehicle they can receive an income for a vehicle and providing they price their deals effectively there can be a lot of money in car leasing. The person or business that leases a vehicle does however take the risk of ownership of the vehicle. If the vehicle depreciates significantly in value over the course of the contract then the people that lease the cars out are the ones that suffer.

If the car leasing company fails to build in a large enough margin they can suffer losses but this is unlikely. It is however likely that people that lease a vehicle are likely to be harder on a vehicle than if they owned it and as a result the leasing company suffers the effects of a mistreated vehicle.

People that utilise car leasing often update their vehicles regularly and they can typically drive around the newest versions of a vehicle and update every couple of years. This means that they can often afford vehicles that would usually be out of their budget and as a result they can also feel less anxious about its upkeep.
