Who Are We?
We are DRIVE CAR FLEX, our goal is to offer a flexible approach to traditional car leasing. It’s ideal for those who need a month-to-month car arrangement on something new or nearly new.
Subsidiary of Cocoon Vehicles, based in Derby. The company has been offering short-term car lease schemes since 2007 and although Car Subscriptions seem to be the new buzzword, we’ve been doing it for years!
All of our flexible car subscription vehicles are based in Leeds and behind the vehicles is one of the top vehicles suppliers in the UK. Cocoon offer the software and the Leeds supplier offer prestigious vehicles from the likes of Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Volvo and Volkswagen.
We’re family owned, honest and upfront from the beginning with no hidden charges.
We like to be upfront about what is going to happen, how we expect you to treat the vehicle and the conditions it needs to be in at the return stage.
Our underwriting process is nice and simple and has been streamlined following customer feedback. New business start-up’s are also welcome to apply.
What do we offer?
We offer fixed and flexible short-term car schemes and which way you decide to go is up to you. But let’s look at the two contracts we offer:
Month-to-month car subscriptions are ideal for those who want to run a vehicle on a flexible basis without the commitment of a traditional car lease. You only pay for the time in the vehicle, unlike other car subscription firms and to return the car, we just require 1 month’s notice (subject to availability).
Our car subscriptions (or flexileases) come with all the motoring essentials:
- Routine Maintenance
- Tyre Provision Where Applicable
- Breakdown Assistance
- Manufacturers Warranty
- Road Fund Licence
All you need to provide is fully comprehensive insurance and fuel (or electric for those opting for an EV).
Our car subscription payments do not cover accidential damage, driver negligence and out of contract charges such as PCN admin charges, VE103b or bounced direct debits.
Short-Term Car Leases
Our short-term car leases do run like traditional contract hire agreements, but instead of being over 2 or 3 years, they are over 6 to 12 months. Manufacturers use companies like ourselves to get cars on the road, when they are returned they go back to the owners and generally go on-sale as approved vehicles.
Our cars are all UK dealer supplied and are generally brand new or pre-registered. We have a fantastic range of cars from the likes of Audi right through to Volvo.
Delivery times aren’t as good as our Car Subscription vehicles, and usually take between 1-3 weeks to be delivered.
We can deliver our fixed contracts free of charge anywhwre in England and Wales, of course covering Yorkshire.
What happens at the end of the contract?
At the end of the contract you can swap your vehicle for another, which we would love you to do.
You can return the car back to our nominated fleet centre, if this is a Car Subscription then it will be Leeds but our short-term fixed contracts can be elsewhere.
Or for a nominal fee, we can collect your vehicle on a specified time/date.
If you are taking another car from ourselves, we do not charge for collection of your old car.
Where do we cover in Yorkshire?
