6 Steps to Leasing a Vehicle
At GB Vehicle Leasing, we aim to make leasing a vehicle as easy and straightforward as possible for our customers. With unrivalled customer service, we are here to help both businesses and personal customers with all your car and van leasing needs. From our experience, we often find customers are unsure about the leasing process and have never leased a vehicle before. Therefore we've put together a list of steps involved in leasing a vehicle in order to make this process easy to understand.
Step 1: Choosing Your Vehicle
Our interactive website enables you to search by make, model, bodystyle or budgets to choose the ideal vehicle for you. You should consider what you want the duration and annual mileage allowance to be for your lease contract as well as the finance type to opt for. Our leasing consultants are always happy to discuss any of the above with you if you are unsure.
Often a vehicle is one of the most valuable possessions you own and therefore we understand this is a big decision to make. We’ve put together a list of factors you may want to consider when choosing which vehicle to lease. Also, you could take advantage of our exceptional special offers.

Step 2: Initial Contact
Once we receive your enquiry, one of our highly experienced consultants will call you to discuss your enquiry. Our team has been carefully selected and trained to an exceptional standard so that you can be sure you’re getting the right guidance from the very first call with us.
This initial contact gives us the opportunity to discuss your specific requirements regarding the vehicle and the leasing contract. Also, our leasing consultants will be more than happy to answer any questions you have regarding leasing a vehicle.
Step 3: Get Your Free Quote
Based on the information you provide to us, the sales consultant will run quotations using the funders at our disposal. You will be provided with a free quotation at the best possible price for the vehicle you desire.
Step 4: Proposal
If you’re happy with the quote provided, then you are required to complete a finance application form on our website. Our team are always on hand to guide you through this if you are unsure about anything. Once completed, we will send this form to the appropriate finance company for them to review. This is to see if you are approved for credit for the leasing contract.
Step 5:Place Your Order
Once the credit has been approved, our admin team will send you the order along with our Terms and Conditions. This is confirming your details, delivery details, vehicle details and finance details. You’re then required to review and sign the Order and Terms and Conditions and return to us. The Order is then sent to the dealer to secure the vehicle.
Our admin team will request any proofs of ID required by you and will forward them to the funder for approval. Once proofs are approved, a finance contract will be requested from the funder and emailed to you. When the finance contract has been signed, and once any ‘Cooling Off Period’ has expired, admin will organise delivery of the vehicle.
You will be required to sign a ‘Vehicle Acceptance Note’ confirming the vehicle is as ordered and in the condition you expected. This is confirmation that you are happy to accept the vehicle and therefore we advise that you conduct a thorough check of the vehicle before signing this form.
Please note: This is the typical process to leasing a vehicle however, on occasions, it could differ due to circumstances. Also if you decide to lease, you must keep the vehicle in good condition as you may pay for any damage outside the BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Guide. As well, you should be aware that if you exceed your mileage allowance for the complete duration of your contract then an excess mileage charge will be applied.
