Your choice of vehicle is one of the most important decisions you make when choosing a rental contract. The different cars are financed not only by different leasing companies, each with its own rules and means of deciding important values, but also carries different future values. Leases generally provide for early termination fees and limit the number of miles a taker can drive (for passenger cars, a common number is 10,000 miles per year, while the amount can be set by the customer and can be 12,000 to 15,000 miles per year). If the mileage allowance is exceeded, a fee may be charged. Merchants generally allow a tenant to negotiate a higher mileage premium for a higher rent. Leases generally specify the amount of wear allowed on the vehicle and the taker can expect a charge if that wear has been exceeded.  A maintenance lease (generally known in the UK as contract rent) may cover all operating costs of vehicles without fuel or insurance. Similarly, for this reason, off-road cars like the Jeep Wrangler are bad candidates for a lease. Prematurely terminating a PCH means that you may have to pay the full rental fee, so think carefully before terminating the contract and finding out exactly that total cost. The PCP and the PCH allow you to rent a car. But PCP also gives you the opportunity to buy the car and become its legal owner at the end of the lease. Most consumer leases will clearly indicate at the top of the form that this is a lease agreement. And indeterminate leases are a type of rental that is most common in business or vehicle rental contracts and not among consumers.
In this type of leasing, it is the tenant who assumes financial responsibility for the risk at the end of the lease. Many leasing companies often use different methods or credit-score cutoffs to determine the monetary factor – the lease-equivalent of the interest rate – that they calculate for the leases they have entered into. Even with the same score, it is possible to obtain very different monetary factors from different leasing companies. In comparison, vehicles that have more niche appeal or are generally driven at a rough distance generally offer much less good rental options than other cars of the same price range or from the same manufacturer. Sports cars, for example, often have very poor residual values because they are not as popular as passenger trucks and sedans, and the athletic driving style of their drivers allows them to experience more wear and tear on their mechanical components. Also known as walk-away leasing, this is the type of leasing that most consumers receive. It allows you to return your vehicle at the end of the lease and not be responsible for anything other than excessive wear and mileage. The choice of the manufacturer and the brand of the vehicle you want to rent is used to determine the available choice of the leasing company. As a general rule, most producers and traders only cooperate with a leasing company that is held in captivity, i.e.
owned in whole or in part by the manufacturer or which has a specific contract with that manufacturer or brand. This alone can have a very significant impact on the final terms of your lease. As a consumer, make sure you only accept a closed lease. Even though most of the non-commercial leasing contracts you will find will be of this type, read your contract carefully to be sure. If the market value of the car is considered to be less than the residual value agreed at the beginning of the lease, it is up to the purchaser to compensate for the difference from the rental company.
