LeaseMe
Essentially
 

Is a maintained operating lease. In other words, the residual risk for your vehicle remains with us and off your balance sheet.

It works like this

LeaseMe Essentially is an operating lease which can be maintained or non-maintained. Like a rental, we retain ownership during and after the agreed
lease term.

  • 10,000km over/under buffer

    10,000km over/under buffer

    We give you a 10,000km buffer over the life of the lease. So, for example, if the lease allows for 100,000km and on return the final mileage is 105,000km, you won’t be charged for the extra 5000km travelled. If you exceed the 10,000km buffer, you pay an agreed over km rate for all of the additional kilometres travelled.

    To help you control the mileage, we’ll run a recalculation for you once a year on your actual kilometres compared with what was allocated.

    Similarly for vehicles that have travelled 10,000km less than what was budgeted, LeasePlan will refund you at the agreed rate. For example, if the lease allows for 100,000km and on return the final mileage is 95,000km you won’t receive a refund. If you return the same vehicle with a final mileage of 89,000km you will be refunded for the 11,000KM that were not travelled.

  • Kilometre variation management (Recalculation)

    Kilometre variation management (Recalculation)

    We use estimated annual kilometres to calculate each lease. In some cases, actual usage may differ from the estimate. We track kilometre estimates either when drivers refuel or when vehicles obtain a WOF or receive servicing checks. That way, we are able to identify vehicles that are travelling outside of their agreed lease terms (both high and low). You can then modify the lease to better align operating budgets with actual usage:

    • Pay no more than necessary if the vehicle is travelling less distance than planned, and avoid large adjustments at lease end if vehicles are travelling more kilometres than initially budgeted. Use recalculation adjustments to gain a true indication of the actual fleet costs, for budgeting and reporting purposes.
    • Match costs to the period in which they are incurred.
    • Use recalculation adjustments to gain a true indication of the actual fleet costs, for budgeting and reporting purposes.
  • Monthly fleet reporting

    Monthly fleet reporting

    Our monthly reports give you easy access to the information you need for better fleet decisions and cost controls. We can send these reports to whichever email address you choose.

    Optional scheduled servicing

    Are you getting the most from your fleet?

    With LeaseMe Essentially you have scheduled servicing budgeted within the lease. This includes labour, parts and materials required to service the vehicle as per the manufacturer's schedule located in the warranty and service booklet. The service plan does not include Warrant of Fitness or items that are subject to wear and tear. Scheduled servicing saves you money and time and adds extra peace of mind:

    • Minimal downtime for servicing and repairs. LeasePlan supports the Franchise Dealer Network which ensures the work will be done by fully qualified senior automotive engineers with extensive experience.
    • Online Maintenance Self Service Tool for our approved suppliers means your maintenance jobs are undertaken quickly and efficiently.

    Scheduled servicing will not be included with the non maintained operating lease option.
