What is Car Leasing?

When you lease a car, the car is yours to drive and operate - as you would if you were to buy a car. The key differences between the two are the ownership and maintenance of the vehicle.

When you buy a car with cash, you own it. (In Malaysia though, most drivers buy a car on a hire-purchase bank scheme. In actuality then, the bank owns it until you pay off the loan!) When it comes to car leasing, the car leasing company owns the car you drive.

What do I need to know to search for in a car lease?

What's the purpose?
It is important to know the purpose of your car lease. Is it for a company or for your individual needs? If it is for business purposes, then perhaps you would like a mid-sized sedan capable of ferrying clients to and fro destinations.

What's your comfortable budget?
To ask is on your budget. As car leasing is a much longer liability than short-term rentals, you may want to take a look at how much you are willing to pay per month.

The type of car you should get would first have to fit within your purpose and your budget available. Once we ascertain your purpose and budget, we will recommend you the best cars for your leasing needs.

How do I inspect a car before leasing it?

Ensure that the car has no visible marks when you receive the car. Ensure that the boot, the paint, the windows are not in any damage whatsoever. Lastly, check that this is the car that you are leasing based on the age and mileage of the car.

What are my payment options?

You can pay monthly via bank deposits, cash, and receipts or through automated credit card payments.

What do I do when the car has a breakdown or gets damaged?

Breakdowns?
We provide all maintenance services for any breakdown situations. However, as is provided in all our cars, a spare tire and other equipment are available in the boot. If it is currently not within the best time frame, you may wish to replace the tire on your own, or wait for our technicians to arrive to rectify the problem. Tire punctures are considered minor accidents and most car companies will not repair it. You can call the car company for assistance but they may charge a nominal fee or go to a gas station for assistance.

Accidents?
First off, do not panic. Next, call one of our 24-hour operators for advice and action to take next. Do not admit guilt or exchange particulars. Call your leasing company immediately for advice. If there are any injuries, call for an ambulance. Do not move the car or admit guilt.

Declare the damage and the extent of the damage when you return the car and we will follow-up with the course of action from there. Be advised that a portion of your security deposit may be forfeited to maintain the car. You may have to pay for the 'loss of future use of car' because the businesses cannot rent or sell the car you have leased anymore.

Call the respective car leasing companies up for direct assistance at their websites. If all else fails, you can call our 24 hour-service operators at (+60) 01 7204 3348 during office hours or (+60) 172043348 after office hours for assistance.

If the car is making strange noises?
For your own safety, please stop driving the car and park it in a safe place. Immediately call the leasing company up for assistance. If they do not pick up, call our 24 hour-service operators at (+60) 01 7204 3348 during office hours or (+60) 172043348 after office hours for assistance.

Terminating a Lease?

The termination clause will be based on our partner's Terms & Conditions. General practices will be, forfeiting the security deposit or maximum value in the remaining period. There are diplomatic clauses which you can choose to return the car after a certain time period of leasing.

About to sign a contract lease?

When signing a lease, always ensure that the model number, license number and configurations are as the car that you have requested for. Also check if there are any defects or damage found in and around the car. Ensure that the handover process is done properly and drive on!

Collision damage waiver (reduces insurance excess) - A type of waiver that reduces Insurance Excesses.

Who is liable for the Fines or the Accidents?

Depending on the offence, you will be receive it within 2 weeks through mail, or 1 week if you check for the records online. Not to worry, the payment grace period starts from the date that you have received the physical mail. If you receive a fine in Malaysia, expect to see the fine about 2 months later.

The person who was driving at the moment of time will be liable for breaking the traffic code. However you may receive additional fines from the partner company if he or she is not the named driver as was signed in the contract.

Do I pay for Road Tax/ Car Insurance/Radio Tax/Maintenance?

No, the cost of leasing the car has already factored in all the required annual taxes for your convenience. However, it may be an optional option for hybrid leasing.

The leasing company will check for your availability for the scheduled maintenance. A replacement car will be provided during the maintenance period.

Can I sublet/rent my car to someone else?

No. It is signed under your name and hence no insurance will be provided for someone else. In addition, the leasing company has only agreed to lease the car to you and only you. To loan the car to someone else will most likely incur a penalty from the leasing company. This is especially true for high end sports cars.

Employment Pass(EP) Holder/Permanent Resident (PR)/Traveler. Can I lease or rent a car?

Yes. As long as you are legally allowed to drive in Malaysia by way of license, you are allowed to rent a car.
