3 reasons to choose Northgate’s 12months+ plan over buying

Northgate have launched 12months+, which gives fleet owners a unique and flexible alternative to contract hire

Here at Northgate, we’ve been supplying affordable and flexible fleet solutions for over 35 years. Therefore, we are excited to unveil 12months+ , a minimum term product that requires no deposit1 and enables you to change your vehicles once during the term.

So, what else makes 12months+ different from contract hire? And how will it benefit you instead of owning your own vans? Here are three reasons to choose 12months+ :

  • An all-inclusive package with predictable costs

Running a light commercial fleet comes with many challenges, such as increasing charges for servicing, maintenance, breakdown and compliance, as well as vehicle depreciation.

With Northgate’s 12months+, the costs are agreed from the outset so you won’t get any big surprises.

As with all of Northgate’s rental products, our 12, 18, 24, 36 and 48 month minimum term packages come with road tax, servicing and maintenance included as standard2. In the event of a breakdown, you get 5 star AA breakdown cover and a courtesy vehicle if we can’t get your van back on the road within 2 hours.


  • Flexibility to change your vehicles

Flexibility has always been at the forefront of Northgate’s proposition. If you suddenly require a different vehicle to one you have on hire, 12months+ allows you to change to a different vehicle once during the term3.

This unique offering from Northgate gives you a flexible alternative to contract hire, helping you to run your fleet efficiently.

Do you own your own vehicles but want to move your fleet to 12months+ ? Northgate’s We Buy You Rent package allows you to sell your old vans to us and rent your fleet from us, releasing capital to use in your business.


  • We reward your loyalty and no deposit required

Running a business can be expensive and Northgate wants to enable our customers to manage their finances more effectively.

Therefore, if you sign up to a 12months+ contract, you will get the most competitive deposit on the market – in fact, no initial deposit is required1.

Unlike many contract hire agreements, 12months+ enables you to achieve better rates with a shorter minimum commitment to reward your loyalty. Simply, the longer the term you pick, the better the rate.
