Declined by mainstream
Most of our customers come to us because they have been declined by other car leasing companies, the main reason for this is, most other companies will look at your credit score first, which is generally computer automated. At CVS Ltd we look at each individual application and look for two main factors:
We need to be able to see that you are traceable at your address, you can show us this by sending us a copy of your driver’s licence and sending a copy of a utility bill.
Send us 3 months worth of current bank statements, clearly showing incoming, outgoing and balance.
You will also need to fill out an application form, which you can do securely online either Personal or Business, or if you prefer to download the application forms here – personal-contract-hire-application-v7 or business-contract-hire-application-v3.

London driving tips
- Parking, plan your trip and research what parking is available. Parking spaces are few and far between in any city, but be sure to park in the correct designated areas otherwise you will get a ticket or clamped.
- Pay attention to signs, OK this sounds silly but in cities, many of the bus lanes and box junctions have a camera watching your every move.
- Cyclists, there are many cyclists in London and the majority of them do stick to the highway code, however, there are a few that traffic weave, and jump lights so it is best to double check when manoeuvring.
- Don’t forget the congestion charge, make sure you make yourself aware of the congestion area.
