Step 1 The Leather Material
Three great materials on our leather seats Robust leather. Strong and durable. Nappa leather. More fragile but smells of heaven, vanilla and Cuban Cigars. Its about £500 more on 5 seats. Alcantara Effect. Suede effect. Benefits from a Scotchguard treatment
1. The most popular colour is black leather understandably. At Swiss we are happy for you to customise your leather and we will build it. We have over a dozen colours 2. Choose thread colours. Its better to keep one colour in most cases to simplify things and blend in
After Sales Leather. 1. Comes witha 12 month Guarantee but you can upgrade to a 3 year National Guarantee. We often ask for larger deposits or payment in full if you order leather. This is especially true if you are making some marvelous creation. 2. In some cases we can stochguard the leather £299 up to 5 seats
Typical Starting Costs
3 Seats from £1049 + VAT = £21 a month 5 Seats from £1499 + VAT = £31 a month based on a 4 year deal on a new van. Add extra for some stich patterns, bespoke design service, Nappa etc Typically add £500 resale value in 4 years thats not accounted for in final payment so you are better off
Most of our competitors tend to be leasing franchises that all sell the same “specials” that tend to be basic vans purchased at the same time by the hundred. Often the vans you are offered have sat around a while. They tend to prefer contract hire as it locks you into them for some time. We work via banks rather than by these franchises so we are not as tied in so can offer more of an array of van finance deals. This is why our vans are fresher and deals better. There is no leasing franchise taking a cut. All methods are tax deductible. All methods you should really have GAP Insurance Policy in case the vehicle is written off. Many commercial insurance policies will not pay new for old.
Hire purchase – VAT down or VAT deferred . HP is a great way to actually buy a van. If your VAT registered claim the whole VAT amount back within three months. Sometimes a pre registered van is cheaper. Click Here.
Contract Hire – This is more popular on cars than vans. Many customers think there is no credit check but there is. Its better for large fleets and doesn’t offer any advantage for less than fleets of 10. If you want to change over 10 vehicles in one go and they are basic then please get in touch.

Lease purchase. Not always the best deal as some manufacturers offer discounts that cannot be used on lease purchase. Its just like HP but with a final payment and once it’s paid you get automatic ownership. It’s better once again for VAT registered businesses especially if you want a T6.1 for example to keep at the end and convert to a motorhome. Sometimes a pre registered van is cheaper. Click here
Finance Lease – By far the most popular method as it attracts the lowest payments . It’s gets the largest discounts from manufacturers same as contract hire. However you can fit accessories many of which you cant n contract hire
Operational Lease – Is just like finance lease however you can hand back the vehicle at the end. Some of our Mercedes vans are like this
Asset Finance – We can finance many products not just vans
Credit Limit – Pre approve your van purchases 90 days in advance. Useful for example if you have a contract tender.
If you write a vehicle off in say year one the insurance company may well pay you less than the settlement value. Thus through no fault of your own you may need to buy a older cheaper van to reach the same monthly payment. Click Here to buy a GAP Policy
