Operating Lease

Lease your bus with ease.

With an operating lease, your bus is leased to you for an agreed period with vehicle operation expenses fully covered in your agreement.

Your monthly payments are calculated based on the total kilometres you wish to cover and the length of your agreement. With low initial outlay, maintenance cover and control over the bus at the end of the agreement, it provides a low risk solution to running your bus.

An Operating Lease covers the costs of acquiring and financing your bus. On expiry of the lease you can simply return your bus to Daimler Bus Financial.

Optional extras are up to you – we can tailor make your Operating Lease to best suit your requirements. Any Mercedes-Benz Bus Service Plans can be added to your Operating Lease contract. Service Plans ensures guaranteed genuine Mercedes-Benz parts and quality. Your Operating Lease contract will be taking care of your bus servicing and maintenance costs for the term of your finance contract. All your scheduled servicing and maintenance costs are included, within the parameters of your Service Plan inclusions. You have set monthly payments that will not change for the duration of your finance contact.

The following items are standard inclusions:

  • Finance costs
  • Finance contact stamp duty
  • Bus pre-delivery costs

While our Operating Lease contract is designed to give you peace of mind, there will naturally be some things that are not covered.

Exclusions include:

  • Accident damage
  • Bodywork, paintwork, associated refurbishment or betterment
  • Daily maintenance checks and topping of lubricant levels between services
  • Repairs covered under warranty
  • Repairs and driver abuse outside fair wear and tear
  • Provision of courtesy or replacement bus

* You should seek professional tax advice before considering an Operating Lease as an option. Daimler Financial Services does not guarantee that you will receive the full tax benefit from entering into an Operating Lease.
