Why do I need Maintenance Cover?

Peace of mind motoring.

Maintenance contracts normally include all scheduled routine servicing, fair wear & tear on tyres, batteries and exhausts. Maintenance Cover can be included with any of our business or personal contracts.

Maintenance Cover will be a fixed monthly amount that you can optionally add. To avoid any nasty surprises or unexpected bills.

If you choose not to include our maintenance cover you will need to make your own arrangements to ensure the vehicle is serviced during the full term of your agreement with us.

What is Maintenance Cover?

Maintenance Cover for vehicle leasing or Contract Hire agreements where the cost of one or more of the following items are included in your monthly rental:

  • Routine Servicing (as required by the Manufacturer)
  • Mechanical Repairs
  • Tyres
  • Batteries
  • Exhausts
  • MOT (required once the vehicle is three years old)

All new vehicles come with a Manufacturer’s Warranty, which guarantees to replace failed components for a fixed period of time with no charge for the parts or labour, subject to the vehicle being looked after and serviced at the correct intervals.

Warranties should not be confused with Maintenance Cover, which will cover you for the cost of routine servicing, and any components and tyres that wear out gradually due to normal usage. These things are not covered by the manufacturer’s guarantee.

Benefits of Maintenance Cover:

  • Fixed cost motoring for the duration of your car leasing contract
  • Cheaper than paying for servicing and repairs as and when needed
  • No unexpected bills
  • Protection against future price increases on parts and labour
  • Servicing and repairs by an approved garage in your locality
  • Fair wear & tear tyre replacement by an approved dealer in your locality
  • No need to pay for work done and then claim it back
  • Reduced administration as no supplier invoices or expense claimsYour vehicle is kept in peak condition throughout your contract

Please remember that all Maintenance Contracts are not the same, and different leasing companies will provide different cover in their car leasing maintenance packages. Please speak to a member of staff here at Tilsun Leasing for further details.
