Non Status Leasing

Non Status Leasing on Cars and Vans

Businesses and Private individuals can increasingly find themselves unable to obtain credit for Contract Hire, Leasing or even Hire Purchase. This can be down to a number of reasons, including New Start Up Business with no trading results, a company established within 2 years with poor trading figures due to a business startup’s, CCJ’s or adverse credit.

Major leasing companies and funders have very strict criteria, there was a time when these big companies would accept just about anyone or anything, but they got stung with massive write off’s and vehicle repossessions. They now like to see positive balance sheets, 3 years worth of payments made on time or even a high credit score that even some millionaires fail to have.

Here at Equalease Short Term Cars, we have been helping Non Status customers since 2007, utilising our Short Term Leasing fleet.

Quick Application?

Just complete one of our proposal forms using the highlighted link, tell us you are non-status and our underwriting team will come back to you requesting more information.

We can help!

We can normally help in most circumstances, whether it has been a change of employment, recent divorce has scuppered credit or a few missed payments. So long as we can see that you can afford the car the answer could be yes!

The rates may differ from those advertised but generally, if we feel the risk is higher, then we will ask for a larger security deposit. We must make you aware, that failure to pay for the vehicle will result in termination of the contract. If a Direct Debit bounces and it is not settled within 48 hours, we will arrange collection of the vehicle and you will be billed accordingly.
