BCH Finance Explained
Business Contract Hire
Available on new cars, new vans and special offers
Our new vehicles and special offers may be available to you through a Business Contract Hire (BCH) agreement from Lombard Vehicle Solutions, which is designed to be a straight forward way to drive a new car.
How it works
You select your chosen vehicle, then decide how many miles per annum you want to travel in it and for how many years. You can set your annual mileage to anything between 5,000 and 50,000 miles, depending on the agreement duration you need. The maximum planned mileage on the car at the end of the agreement can be no more than 100,000 miles and the duration of the agreement can be set to between 24 and 48 months.
Based on your chosen vehicle, term and annual mileage, you'll make a fixed monthly payment for the duration of your agreement.
Any advance payment you make will reduce your monthly payments throughout your agreement.
Once you reach the end of your agreement, you simply hand the vehicle back. Providing you’ve looked after the vehicle and kept within your contracted mileage there will be nothing more to pay.
The vehicle needs to be in a condition in line with its age and mileage. It’s important to try and accurately predict your mileage. For any excess mileage you’ll be charged a pence per mile fee. This fee will be detailed on the initial quote and agreement you sign. Condition is based on the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association’s Fair Wear and Tear Guide.
BCH is a hire agreement, meaning you’ll never own the vehicle. This means you avoid the hassle of deciding what to do with the vehicle at the end of the agreement as you cannot sell it - simply hand it back once your contract is up.
