Contract Hire – Plus
What is Contact Hire?
Contract Hire provides a complete fleet solution for businesses we will specify the exact vehicles for your needs, vehicles are also supplied with your livery and you do not have the burden of ownership or disposal. The assets that you contract hire are provided and fully managed by us for a fixed period of time which usually ranges from 3-5 years, there will also be a specified mileage allowance that matches your specific business activities.
The fully managed service included with contract hire means that we take care of all aspects of your fleet on your behalf including vehicle finance, servicing and maintenance, administration and documentation. Contract hire is the perfect solution for companies that operate a large fleet of commercial vehicles but do not have the time to manage them all and keep them compliant. Ultimately, contract hire enables companies to focus on other areas of their business while we keep their fleet fully operational and compliant.

Seven Asset Management – The Key Differences
The broad definition of ‘Contract Hire’ covers a wide spectrum of service performance standards. At its most basic level, vehicles are supplied at a low rate with everything thereafter recharged as ‘additional’ items, resulting in potentially large, unexpected costs and charges. Seven is not simply a vehicle supply company. We are an asset ‘management’ company, dedicated to supplying and supporting the best specification vehicles with the lowest whole life cost for our customers.
Vehicle Management ‘Not just commercial vehicle Contract Hire’.
We believe this is why we have one of the highest levels of customer renewals within the industry. Our commitment is to always deliver on the principle of exceptional Customer Service. Incorporated within Seven’s services is the management of all regular scheduled servicing, safety inspections and general maintenance, MOT applications, preparation and presentation for tests, all warranty claims management and full tyre management service.
Industry leading performance
Our annual MOT HGV first-time pass rates currently exceed 97% with final pass rates exceeding 99%. When compared against the current industry averages of 82.8% and 89.7% respectively.
A UK wide network of fully approved and regularly audited professional maintenance centres ensure that vehicles are maintained to the legislative and manufacturers standards required. Seven provide a ‘round the clock’ support network wherever the vehicles operate throughout the UK.
