Personal Van Leasing with Select

Our vans and pick-up trucks aren’t just reserved for business customers, they’re here to be leased for personal use as well. 

You might need all the room and practicality of a light commercial vehicle for your holiday needs. Or you might want a durable van or pick-up to stow your bikes, kayaks and camping gear for those adventurous weekends away.  You can lease a van or pick-up truck with plenty of seats for all the family - particularly with a double-cab pick-up or crew cab van - making it a brilliant alternative to a traditional car.

We’ve got personal lease van deals from all the major manufacturers, including Toyota, Isuzu, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Vauxhall, Nissan, Fiat, Peugeot and Volkswagen.  Here at Select Van leasing we’ve also got a host of electrified vans available to personal lease customers, helping to drive down your fuel costs.

Speaking of costs, with a personal van lease your road tax is paid for the length of your agreement, you also get free breakdown cover and manufacturer warranty protection, and you’d insure it just like you would any other vehicle.

Personal Van Leasing Explained

To find out more about the amazing benefits of a personal van lease deal, keep scrolling below.

How does a personal van lease work?

Many companies and sole traders lease a van purely for business use, and they can take advantage of generous tax advantages in doing so.

But you don’t have to lease a van for business reasons - because vans and pick-ups are often the perfect vehicle for personal use as well.

Whether you’ve got a home improvement project, a hobby that means you have to haul bulky items on the road, or whether you just want a rugged vehicle to take you off the beaten track - a light commercial vehicle might do the job for you.

And when you lease a van for personal use, you take advantage of benefits like having your road tax paid, getting free breakdown cover, and enjoying the protection of a manufacturer’s warranty.

The whole process is simple - just choose your van, select the length of the contract, and set your agreed annual mileage.

You can also add an affordable ‘maintenance’ package, too, which covers you for servicing, maintenance, and the replacement of worn tyres.

We’ll deliver your brand new van direct to your door, and anywhere in the UK.

Personal van leasing FAQs

You can, yes - you don’t need to be a business person to enjoy a van lease. Many businesses choose to lease a van for company use and there are lots of tax advantages to doing so, such as being able to claim back 100% of the VAT.

But a van also makes sense for many lease customers who want to use it solely for personal use. A van will carry things like mountain bikes, kayaks, paddle boards, and camping kit much easier than a typical car can.

And there are also plenty of vans with seating for the whole family, meaning it’s just as comfortable on the school run as it is heading to the great outdoors at weekends.

Leasing gives you access to fixed cost motoring that helps you to plan ahead and manage your monthly budget.

You’ll pay a low initial fee followed by affordable monthly payments, and you can fix the length of your contract for two, three or four years.

At the end of that lease period, you simply hand the vehicle back and walk away. You’re not left with the depreciation cost that new vehicles suffer, you don’t need to have large sums of money tied-up in the outright purchase of a new van. When your lease contract ends, you’re free to choose a brand new vehicle.

You can also add a low-cost ‘Maintenance’ package to your agreement, which covers you for the replacement of worn tyres as well as servicing and routine maintenance. You can read more in our guide on servicing and maintenance packages.

Perhaps most importantly of all, our expert Select Car Leasing consultants will do all of the hard work before delivering the vehicle to your door.

The initial payment, like with any lease agreement, is a way to reduce the size of your monthly fee. The larger your initial payment, the lower your monthly fee, and vice versa. With a personal van lease you can adjust the size of your initial payment to suit your circumstances, helping you to find the deal that’s perfect for you and your budget.

All of our personal lease vans come with road tax, breakdown cover and manufacturer’s warranty included.

But if you want extra peace of mind, you can also add an affordable, optional Maintenance package to your monthly fee. It doesn’t just cover you for servicing and routine maintenance, it also includes the replacement of worn tyres.

Take a look at the ‘Lease Deals’ tab at the top left hand side of the page to discover a huge array of vans at the cheapest prices. Many of these vehicles are in stock and ready to be delivered - which means no waiting around for a new van to be built.

And our ultra-affordable personal lease vans cover all bases - from fully-electric pick-ups to tried-and-trusted vehicles like the Ford Transit and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Whatever van you’re looking for, and whatever you’re hoping to do with it, you’ll find a deal that’s affordable.

Select Van Leasing boasts more than 20 years in the trade, which means we’ve established unparalleled relationships with dealer groups, manufacturers, and vehicle finance companies - all of which ensures you get the cheapest possible rates on your personal van lease.

We’ve got a whole host of vans and pick-ups available with a personal lease contract at Select Van Leasing, from small vans like the Ford Transit Courier to larger vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. We’ve got cargo variants of some of the most popular cars and SUVs, such as the Land Rover Defender and Mitsubishi Outlander vans. You can also choose a practical MPV light commercial vehicle, such as the Volkswagen Transporter Shuttle.

The specialist leasing consultants in our Select Van Leasing division live and breathe light commercial vehicles. You might have questions about payload, load lengths, insurance implications or the choice between single and double cabs. You might also be considering a van with an electrified powertrain. If you’ve got any query at all - including what van might be right for you on a personal lease deal - simply reach out by hitting the ‘Enquire’ button on our website or picking up the phone and calling 0118 338 3799.

An excess mileage fee may apply if you exceed your total contract mileage. That fee will be detailed on your Finance Agreement - so be sure to check it and mitigate for it if you think you might exceed the annual mileage limit.
