Alternative Audi Leasing Deals
Excellent, clear and responsive service. Everything John told me was accurate and couldn't be happier with the aftercare.
This is the second time that I’ve used Vantage for my personal lease, and they pulled a fantastic deal out of the bag once again. I had a wide range of vehicles to chose from, and the sales specialist fully understood my individual circumstances and matched me to the perfect vehicle. Paperwork was completed from home with no issues, and delivery was quick and hassle-free. I’d definitely recommend Vantage to anyone looking for a cost-effective, convenient and above all professional service.
Vantage Leasing were great from start to finish. Unfortunately my previous Evoque was stolen in December 2021 and I was searching for a replacement immediately. I stumbled across Vantage Leasing whilst obtaining quotes, and I was dealing with John Livesley who was fantastic. John's communication and efficient service made Vantage stand out from the rest, he always responded on the same day and kept me in the loop at all stages. John's knowledge of the car industry is second to none - he was always upfront and honest with me about any potential delays or issues, and he managed to find me a 22 plate Evoque around 12 months faster than other companies could! I would recommend Vantage to everyone, there were no tricks or fibs like I had experienced when obtaining quotes from other companies, just honesty and transparency. I'm now back in my dream car already thanks to John.
i though the service was very professional with a touch of care to there customers. we delt with a guy called John Livesley and he was really good and went and got what we needed with no head aches at all. with his knowledge of cars and the industry he made this a seamless experience
