Comparing Van Subscription Services

Not all vehicle subscription companies offer commercial vehicles, so we’re here to tell you where you can subscribe to your next van.

Each and every van subscription company has it’s own pro’s and con’s, so use our website to compare the different services that they offer.

At the end of the day, you need that vehicle to fit around you and your business.

If you spot an error with our van comparison chart, please use the contact page to drop us a line.

Some of the van subscription businesses advertise their best rates on taking the vehicles for periods of 24 months, a vehicle subscription should really be flexible or you might as well just take out a van lease.

But many of the providers on this website require you to take the vehicles for 28 or 90 days to get the best price. The beauty of this is that you do not need to pay an early termination fee.

When comparing your van quotes, it is really important to make sure that they match quote-for-quote, you need to look out for the following pitfalls:

  • Minimum Period
  • Excess Mileage Charges
  • Do you pay monthly or 4-weekly?
  • Are tyres included?
  • What are the return standards like?

28 Days vs. Monthly

One of the points touched on above is the payment frequency. Are the rates advertised per month or per 28 days?

The 28-days figure automatically makes the figures look more reasonable, but remember there are 13 lots of 4-weeks per year.

Utilise a calculator and work out the monthly rate by multiplying it by 13 and divide it by 12.

Flexed (part of Autohorn) advertises 28-day rates. Cocoon Vehicles, Mycardirect and Wagonex advertise monthly prices.

Example

Var Subscription Company – Advertises 28 Days Figures

Vehicle 1 is £399 + VAT per 28 days
The equivilent monthly rate is £432.25 + VAT

We get this figure by multiplying the 28 day rate by 13 and dividing it by 12.
