About Select Car Leasing
Select was started in 2004 by two men with a true passion for cars and people, Mark Tongue and James O’Malley.
With over 10 years of customer service experience in the motor trade, the pair had a vision to provide people with a smart and hassle-free way of obtaining a brand new car through the concept of leasing. From the back room of a house in Reading, they leased their first car in March of that year.
At Select Car Leasing our mission is to be the UK's leading Car and Commercial vehicle leasing broker. We take immense pride in this business and work with integrity, honesty and dedication to exceed customer expectations.
Our employees are fundamental to the success of the business and they strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience. We are committed to our staff and provide an environment where development can thrive and a culture where staff are recognised for their contribution to the Select Car Leasing story.

Our staff's relationship with our customers is what makes us different, and we’re delighted that Trust Pilot continue to award us the 'Excellent' rating for customer satisfaction.
Customers repeatedly tell us that, while they love our great prices and our extensive range of makes and models, more importantly, it's our friendly, knowledgeable, professional staff and the guidance they offer that keeps people coming back time and again.
The significant on-going growth we have enjoyed as a company over the past 15 years has been in large part due to customer's loyalty and referral. Today we are proud to be one of the UK's leading vehicle leasing companies.
With over 35,000 personal and business customers serviced to date across all parts of the UK, this year alone close to 20,000 people will order a car from Select. We employ approximately 150 staff across 2 locations in Berkshire, including our flagship retail store in Reading where customers can come in and meet the team.

We are also a key sponsor of our local Championship football club Reading FC.
In January 2016 we became a key sponsor of Championship football club Reading FC and as a result, our company name appears on the dugouts and around the ground at every home fixture. We've always been based in Reading so it's a great opportunity for us to work with the club and engage the wider community. Company Director Mark Tongue said "Having recently acquired additional premises in Reading town centre, this is the perfect time to secure a partnership with a football club so openly invested in its local community. We are very much looking forward to working with the Royals and connecting with the club’s supporters."
