Why Choose a 12-Month Lease? 

A 12-month car lease is an ideal choice for those who require a vehicle for a short period or who prefer not to commit to a long-term contract. Here’s why it’s a smart option:

  • Flexibility: Life is unpredictable. A 12-month lease offers the flexibility to change your vehicle as your circumstances or preferences change without the long-term commitment of traditional leasing.
  • Cost-Effective: Avoid the hefty depreciation costs associated with buying a new car. With a 12-month lease, you enjoy a newer model car for a year without the long-term financial burden.
  • Business Benefits: For businesses, a 12-month lease can align with project durations or provide temporary transportation for employees. It's also a great way to manage a fleet without the long-term commitment or capital expenditure.
  • Stay Up-to-Date: Enjoy the latest models with the most current safety features, technology, and fuel efficiency. A shorter lease term means you can upgrade your vehicle more frequently.

Benefits of 12-Month Leasing

  • Ideal for Seasonal Use: If you require a vehicle for a specific season or part of the year, a 12-month lease is a practical solution.
  • Perfect for Transitional Phases: Whether you’re in between cars, waiting for a new model release, or in a transitional life phase, a 12-month lease provides a convenient stop-gap.
  • Tax Advantages for Businesses: Businesses can benefit from tax deductions on lease payments, making it a cost-effective option for corporate use.

12 Month Leasing FAQs

The vehicles offered have been inspected and, if necessary, refurbished. They are all in very good condition, but some vehicles may come with some wear and tear or minor damage like small chips, scuffs, or scratches.
