Leasing Options celebrates 25 years in business

Over the past 25 years, the company has increased its offering of manufacturers and funding choices, and has provided nearly 60,000 vehicles to the UK market since the company began.  

Nigel Brain, co-founder and managing director at Leasing Options, said: “25 years ago, costs to fund and lease vehicles were very expensive. The access to these funders and preferential rates was a ‘best kept secret’ only large firms and blue chip corporations could access.  

“We wanted to prove that leasing could be done for much less, and make it accessible to as many people as possible from a sole trader, or a small medium business. We’ve thankfully been proved right.”  

The family-run business, which celebrated its birthday by blew out the candles on several birthday cakes by driving through them in an Audi R8, says it has recently seen unprecedented growth. The company experienced 88% growth within the last two years, with the past three years seeing the best direct sales figures in the company’s history.

Recent years have shown a huge investment in staff and training, with local talent identified and hired where possible. The company also recently purchased personal FITBIT activity trackers for all staff to try develop and encourage a healthy workforce. 

Nigel Brain added: “We are so pleased with how the business has progressed over the past 25 years and now is the right time to push the business forward and increase our services further in the near future.”
