  3. Choose your maintenance option
  4. Choose your annual mileage
  5. Furrows Transit Centre will calculate your advance rental and fixed monthly rental
  6. At the end of the agreement you simply return the vehicle to us, take out a new Ford Contract Hire agreement and collect the latest model (further costs may apply subject to mileage and condition)

Fair wear and tear:

Fair wear and tear is the policy, adopted by Ford Lease and supported by the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA), to describe the condition of a vehicle which is considered acceptable and appropriate given its age and mileage at the end of the agreement. Ford Lease will only charge for damaged or missing items, in excess of this 'fair wear and tear' policy.
