Consider A Lease

This week on Thursday at 8pm the boys from work and I had our usual poker game, as we do every fortnight at Kenneth’s house. The conversation was flowing from topic to topic but the hot debate of the night on this occasion happened to be about the vehicles that all of us drive.

There were no prizes for guessing how much Kenneth was paying – his personal contract hire Jeep Cherokee was displayed on the drive of his home in all its glory and he would waste no time informing you of how much he was paying per month and what sort of mileage limits he’d be benefitting from. Without going into specific numbers he made it clear that it was probably time for us to start thinking about taking out similar deals for such a nice car.

Daniel was next up to have his say and he seemed a little sheepish after – the amount he paid for his new Audi Q2 was nothing to shout home about in comparison to the favourable deal that Kenneth had informed us of. He said that he was inclined to think that a lease Cherokee could be a good choice – it would provide extra space and it was affordable.

Following on from here I piped up with what I had to say. I explained to the lads that although I have been driving a Suzuki Jimny for quite some time, I needed something with more space and off-road capabilities and had in fact been considering something similar to what Kenneth had after originally seeing his vehicle a couple of months ago. The main difference was that I was more interested in a business lease Jeep as putting the deal through my company could save me some serious dosh.

Last up was Jimmy who had been waiting patiently to tell us about the sports coupe that he drives proudly up and down M42 on his commute. He said he would find it difficult to imagine life without a fast car like a coupe. However in the coming months he was also considering a contract hire Jeep Cherokee – it was clear to see the impact that Kenneth’s speech had had on the group.
