"This has been absolutely hassle free and we wont hesitate to deal with these guys again"

Just a bit of feed back. We have leased a car through LeaseDirect for the last 12 months. It was organised from the UK and the car was ready as arranged. During the lease the wiper blades started to smear a bit. These were replaced with out a fuss. Service and WOF were also arranged very efficiently. This has been absolutely hassle free and we wont hesitate to deal with these guys again.

I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service, helpful staff and great choice of cars.

We didn't have any problems in 2 years, but it was good to know that all costs were covered. Having a lift to the airport when we left was the icing on the cake.


Louise and Phil, England

We are from Singapore and leased a car from Lease Direct for 10 months.

We are very satisfied with the company. From when we first contacted them while still in Singapore to the return of the vehicle, everything has been smooth, fuss-free, and efficient. Will lease from them again if we go back to the beautiful country of New Zealand!

Thank u! 


Thank you so much for looking after us with two cars for our year in NZ.

 Everything was so hassle-free. We were picked up from the airport and were driving away in our fully insured cars, with child seat and AA cover, within 30 minutes.

The fact that all maintenance was included in the monthly fee was huge peace of mind after hearing about friends who had bought second-hand cars that required thousands of dollars of repairs within 6 months. Getting reimbursed for the WOF and servicing was as simple as sending iPhone photos of the receipts to you, and the money was in our account within 24 hours.

We are leaving the country the day after I finish work, so dropping off the cars on the way to the airport makes the whole experience so convenient. Thanks again. I have recommended you to my successor.

A big thank you to yourself and the Lease Direct team for the great service you provided me for the past 13 years.

From my records, it was May 2001 that I took the first car, and since then, the vehicles and the service has been superb. The full maintenance aspect of the lease was brilliant and all servicing was carried out efficiently and with no inconvenience.

When I moved into semi-retirement, being able to purchase the current vehicle at the end of the lease period for a pre-negotiated price was a huge benefit, with no interruption whatsoever to my transport needs.

Thank you again for your wonderful service


Geoff Beaver, Tourplan Pacific Ltd.

I would like to say what a pleasure it was doing business with you and your Company.

 I was looking for trouble-free motoring and certainly achieved that. The service I received was excellent and everyone I was in contact with couldn't have been more helpful.
With many thanks.

Hi Team! I just wanted to let you know how great you have been to deal with.

From your very helpful website to your prompt and friendly communication! I love the car and I know it is going to make my business look great! Thanks so much for your help and fantastic service.          Warm regards.

" I'd like to thank you for making the past 9 years of leasing a vehicle a pleasure.

 As you'll know, I've had three vehicles over 3 separate lease terms and have found you and your staff to be flexible and happy to source the right vehicle at each stage. 
The overall service, including servicing and attending to any special requests has always been responsive and attentive. I've recently changed roles and a lease vehicle is no longer part of the package. If it had, I would certainly have been more than happy to continue to deal with Lease Direct, knowing your offering is competitive and backed by good service.  
All the best in the future.  Kind regards.

Jeff Briggs, Auckland

"Thank you for the great service we've had from Lease Direct over the last 3 & half years.

 It's been really convenient for us to have such a hassle free way of owning a vehicle with all the maintenance issues taken care of. The service has always been first rate - really friendly and accessible.  I'd definitely recommend Lease Direct to anyone contemplating a lease arrangement for their family vehicle. Best wishes to you all."

"I am writing this testimonial for Lease Direct because since 2003 we have had nothing but fantastic service from them.

Being in business is challenging, there are a great many risks. Leasing vehicles was a big decision, we did our homework very thoroughly. We searched all over New Zealand to find the best pricing and the most genuine people to deal with. Lease Direct have provided exactly, everything that we had wished for in a vehicle leasing company. Their service is very personalised and highly professional. They are on the ball in every respect Lease Direct understand and look after the little guy, this is difficult to find and was important to us. We have found them to be thoughtful and generous, They "don't sweat the small stuff." Just awesome people to do business with. We have a lot to thank this company for, so do not hesitate to put in a kind word for them. Please ring for further confirmation regarding this testimonial.

"Early Start Project has been dealing with Lease Direct since 1997 Peter Midgley is always available and takes the needs of our not-for-profit agency into consideration.

Initially we leased 2 vehicles but over time as our needs changed we increased this to 5 cars.
The monthly lease fees are extremely reasonable, and in fact there hasn't been a fee increase for over 10 years.
The lease vehicles provided are always in excellent condition and well groomed.
WoF and vehicle registration is always provided when due.
We have always found Peter and his team at Lease Direct to be very prompt, efficient and helpful when assisting us with flat batteries and any other mechanical problems.
We would recommend Lease Direct to any other agency or business as they provide excellent service at very reasonable rates.


Shirley Percasky, Office Manager, Early Start Project Ltd., Christchurch

"The team at Lease Direct were great, with an excellent reminder system for maintenance and warrants.

Any issues with the car were always taken care of promptly. When we chose to purchase the car at the end of the lease term they were friendly and helpful with the process. A pleasant surprise arrived in the post a month or two later - they had found an additional key for the car, and had sent it to us, so now we have three! We'll be back next time we're after another lease."

"We have been leasing a small fleet of cars from Lease Direct since January 2001 and in that time have had more than 15 different vehicles on full service lease agreements.

These vehicles have been required to meet specific budgets, to be delivered to different towns throughout the country, and to be serviced in a range of locations. In every occasion Lease Direct have delivered what we want when we want and ensured that our sales staff have a suitable vehicle at all times, including replacements for vehicles damaged in an accident. I have found the staff to be willing to listen, flexible and constantly professional with any issues addressed immediately. In my experience, this level of service exceeds the norm and I have no hesitation in recommending the Company to any organisation wishing to lease vehicles in New Zealand" 

M J Wilkinson, Director, KB Toys Ltd., Auckland

"Vikings Futsal New Zealand have been leasing cars from Lease Direct since 2004 and have enjoyed the relationship immensely.

 Lease Direct cars are fantastic with a price point to match. We recommend them to anyone who is looking to increase their fleet and minimise costs" 

Paul Wadsworth, CEO, NZ Futsal Association Inc. P O Box 38139, Parklands, Christchurch

"Lease Direct were my first foray into company vehicle leasing, and they have been an absolute pleasure to deal with.

 I leased a very tidy second-time lease vehicle, which arrived in fabulous condition. The team at Lease Direct were always helpful, even on weekends, and I can't recommend them highly enough. Three years on my company has purchased its own vehicle, but I would have no hesitation leasing again from Lease Direct should the need ever arise. Thanks guys!" 

Jan Galloway, Director, Corinthian Limited.

"I leased a vehicle from Lease Direct for three years from 2006 to 2009.

During that time I received courteous and prompt attention to any and all matters regarding the vehicle. I received regular notification of servicing dates due etc. and was impressed with the "hands-on" approach Lease Direct has to its clients. The fact they are based in Christchurch and I live in Wellington never caused any problems at all. I was so impressed with the vehicle supplied that I ended up buying it from Lease Direct when the lease term expired! I have no hesitation in recommending Lease Direct to any prospective client." 

Chris Whitta, Radio Host, Wellington

"We moved over from the United States and I selected Lease Direct to take care my firm's auto leasing program.

 I could not have been happier. Peter Midgley and his team provided excellent service and were always there for us when we needed them. If someone is looking for a hassle free experience, I would highly recommend them."

"I wanted to say a big thank you to you all for providing such excellent service though-out the year.

The car I leased from you proved to be a reliable and well maintained vehicle which gave me many km's of enjoyable motoring though-out the year. I suffered one minor breakdown which was handled quickly and effectively by Peter and I was back on the road the following day. It seems that good customer service these days is getting hard to find, however I am pleased to say that I had no such problem with Lease Direct and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wishing to lease a car. Thank you again."

Matt Clark, U.K.

"I am emailing to thank Lease Direct and you for your excellent all-round support and service during the last 15 months.

What I needed was a local, friendly and flexible outfit to provide and support a vehicle for my short stay in New Zealand. You fulfilled all this and more. You were always responsive and helpful and concerned that everything was working for me. The car was great and no problem at all, perfect for our requirements. The pick up and hand-over were seamless and you judged the mileage we'd need perfectly. It is the small things that make a real difference, so a lift into town at the end of our lease was brilliant, as was the dropping off of our car seats to our motel.
Thank you again"

Thomas William-Powlett, U.K.

"I leased a car from Lease Direct for the duration of my expatriation in New Zealand.

 From start to finish I received excellent, highly professional and friendly service from them, even throughout the hard times of the Canterbury earthquakes." 

Harri Paananen, Dazzle, Finland, http://www.dazzle.fi/

Thank you very much for all your help with our car lease - we found the lease price to be very reasonable.

The vehicle met our expectations and was a very reliable car during the six month lease.  You and your staff were very helpful and greatly assisted us when we had questions, needed the vehicle serviced, and when we had a flat tyre and needed AA assistance.  We would highly recommend your business to others.
Thank you again,

Kathy Kelley, United States of America 

"Our lease vehicle was supplied when and as described.
