Keep an eye on our special offers as this varies from time to time.

What is pay as you go?

“Pay-as-you-go” means making your monthly payments on time to continue using the vehicle.  All our cars have telematics equipment installed, and every month you make your payment, you will receive a new code by text. Once entered into the immobiliser, the car will continue to operate.

Does my car come with insurance and tax etc.?

You have to insure your car yourself with a fully comprehensive insurance prior to collection of the car. Your lease cars comes with the first year’s road fund licence. The second and third year of the Lease Period, you pay for the annual road fund licence for the Vehicle. If you fail to pay for a road fund licence, this will entitle us to immobilise the Vehicle using the System.

You are covered for the full 3 years on mechanical faults by the terms as set by the manufacturer. General wear and tear and maintenance is your responsibility (see below).

What's covered in my service plan?

You have a full servicing plan throughout your lease. We will notify you when your due to be serviced and you can book the car in at time that suits your schedule.

What is general wear and tear?

General wear is items such as tyres, brake pads, clutch, windscreen wipers, scrapes, dents and scratches etc. Fair wear and tear occurs when normal day-to-day usage causes deterioration to a vehicle. It is not to be confused with damage such as impacts, harsh treatment, or negligence.

The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) is the trade body for leasing companies. The BVRLA has created an industry wide standard that defines fair wear and tear at the end of a lease agreement – you can view the details of the BVRLA guidelines here.

Can I end my lease early?

If you were to end your lease early you would have to pay 50% of your remaining contract.

How do I make my monthly payment?

All monthly payments must be made by direct debit which is set up at the beginning of the contract.

What happens if I miss a payment?

If you miss a payment, a £25 late payment fee will be charged.
If your direct debit is cancelled by yourself or the bank, an additional £25 will be charged to reset your direct debit.

If you miss a payment, you will not receive your code and your car will be disabled so you cannot drive it.

What happens if I get a parking ticket or speeding fine?

If you receive any kind of ticket or fine, you will be liable to pay this.

How do I enter the code?

We issue the codes to you by Text after we receive your monthly direct debit. Our accounts team are closed from 16.30 on a Friday and re-open at 9.30 Monday morning. Codes cannot be issued within those times.

YOU MUST ENTER YOUR GIVEN CODE WITHIN 12 HOURS

At Wheels4Sure, we have two types of units:
If you have a remote in your car you have a PASS-TIME unit, when you receive your code please make sure you have the keys in the ignition turned to the right but without engine running. You must PRESS CLEAR TWICE and then you will hear a beep, then you PRESS PAY and enter the code that you have been given and you will then hear chirp.

If you do not have a remote you have an ON-TIME unit, when you receive your code just enter the code onto the keypad.
