UK campervan converter Wellhouse Leisure is launching Wellhouse Leasing to offer business and private users a choice of funding options for its latest models.
Finance packages to be offered will include Personal Contract Hire, Business Contract Hire, Finance Lease and Hire Purchase. Wellhouse Leasing is being managed by Drivespeed Leasing, a contract hire, finance and leasing provider.
The first model to be offered through Wellhouse Leasing is the Wellhouse Ford Custom Le-Tour Van. The vehicle is based on a Ford Transit Custom van, but can also be adapted into a camper van. It retails from £29,995 and is available from Wellhouse Leasing on a Business Finance Lease scheme from £449 plus VAT per month.
Wellhouse Leisure is a Ford accredited Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM), and offers a range of other campervans based on the Ford Transit Custom or the Ford Tourneo Custom. These will also be available through Wellhouse Leasing from early 2019.
David Elliot, chief executive officer of Wellhouse Leisure, said: “Having experienced the growth in the campervan market in recent years, it was obvious to me that the finance offerings available to them was lagging behind other sectors, such as cars. The opportunity to work in partnership with a trusted brand like Drivespeed was the ideal chance to bring something new and beneficial to offer to the campervan market.”
Phil Elms, managing director of Drivespeed Leasing, said: “As a leasing company we have seen a huge upsurge in demand for competitive finance packages on converted vehicles. We wanted to ensure that acquiring a fantastic Wellhouse Leisure campervan was more affordable than ever for customers, so we used our unique understanding in this area to develop a great range of ‘ownership’ and ‘user-ship’ finance agreements to achieve this.”
Based in Huddersfield, Wellhouse Leisure has been operating since 2003, through a period when the number of vehicle converters in the UK has risen from 50 to more than 500.
