Making preparations to lease a new Volkswagen can be a bit taxing even more so you’ve never leased a car before because you have preferred to buy your own Volkswagen instead.
You may not have a full grasp of all of the leasing terms or you could be unclear about the whole process of finding the right vehicle and then agreeing to a Golf GTD lease deal. On the other hand, you might have no idea about all of the leasing options that are currently on offer.
So if this sounds a little familiar and you need to figure out how to find the right Volkswagen then here are some guidelines to assist you when it comes to making your choice.
1) Firstly, you should make a lot of preparations. This means that you should decide whether leasing is right for you both now and maybe even five years in the future. Then once you have made a choice you should find out more about the Volkswagen you want to hire. Take extra time to determine exactly what features you want in your new Volkswagen, such as interiors, colour, seats, body shape, doors and if the car will be well-suited to your driving needs.
2) Then, you need to become up to date with the leasing jargon so that you don’t become bamboozled with the terms, for instance, money factor (interest formula), capitalised cost (the car price) and residual value (the car’s value after the lease is over). Then you should determine an approximate value of the monthly payments, which will be manageable and you would like to pay. This type of information can be easily located by searching the internet and if you happen to be using the internet to hire a car then read through the web page before talking to a team or agreeing on a deal.
3) However, do not take monthly payments at face value as they are not as important as you may think. What I mean to say is that the monthly leasing fee is not always a good guide to value, because lower fees in most cases will mean you will have to hire the vehicle for a longer length of time. When you work out the total fee on the lease it might be exactly the same, so be careful not to be bamboozled by the numbers. So even if the car leasing company offers vehicles at a figure that seems high then you need to consider what else they may be providing you with.
4) You should do some research and take advantage of promotions. If you do this then you can then minimise the capitalised cost of the Volkswagen and also the leasing payments. Research the market and work out if any promotions are available at the moment and which leasing companies they are with. You should research the market and work out whether a manufacturer or a particular model is cheaper at the moment. For example, compared to other models Volkswagen car leasing is very affordable at present.
5) When looking at Volkswagens keep in mind what it is that you are looking for. You need to be objective and not get wowed by the first Volkswagen that you are taking out for a test drive or the latest model on the forecourt. Instead, focus on the exact features that you want from your hired car and only sign on the line if the car has all of the features you want.
By sticking to these guidelines choosing the right leased Volkswagen should be a lot less stressful and you’ll be able to find the right model for your particular needs, whatever the Volkswagen model.
