Who are Marshall Leasing? The Marshall Leasing story Marshall Leasing operates a fleet of over 8000 vehicles with a net book value of over £100m. Throughout the years our journey from fledgling company to award winning national fleet operator has been charted by the current senior management team. Our heritage and experience in fleet management and finance lies at the heart of our customer focused operation. Marshall Leasing is an integrated vehicle leasing business positioned 26th largest fleet leasing company in the UK (2018 FN50). The business is service led and has been rated number one in the independent fleet eye customer survey for 2016. We also were voted ‘Fleet Service Company of the year’ in 2010, 2013 and 2016, and ‘Fleet Leasing company of the year’ 2017 by the Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO). In 2018 we were winners of Fleet News Leasing Company of the year up to 20,000 vehicles. Today Marshall Leasing is a Bank of Ireland owned business. We began life as an independent contract hire and fleet management company within the family managed and privately owned Marshall of Cambridge group. Following the motor group's floatation on the stock market AIM in 2015 we became the subsidiary of Marshall Motor Holdings PLC. Two years later the N.I.I.B Group Limited which trades as Northridge Finance, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bank of Ireland UK (BOI) acquired Marshall Leasing. NIIB Group Northridge Finance was established in 1956 in Bangor, Northern Ireland. In 1984, NIIB was bought by the Bank of Ireland Group and is now the leading independent finance company in Northern Ireland. They entered the Scottish market in 1999, followed by a move into England and Wales in 2003. Today, regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and members of the Finance & Leasing Association, their steady growth in all these markets continues. This success speaks volumes about the value of their personal approach to establishing mutually beneficial long-term partnerships, which remains central to the business today. Along the way, they have gained a strong reputation as a solid, well-established business partner dedicated to understanding the needs and aims of their clients. The synergy between Northridge Finance and Marshall Leasing is as much about shared value as it is shared ambition and our close relationship now generates significant opportunities. Heritage Marshall of Cambridge was established in 1909 by David Gregory Marshall, as a chauffeur drive company, which was an immediate success. During a chance meeting with Sir Herbert (later Lord) Austin during the Great War resulted in Marshall being awarded the Distributorship for Austin in Cambridgeshire immediately after the war. Today the company that David Marshall founded is one of the UK's leading Motor Groups with 103 franchises covering the United Kingdom and delivering the whole range of premium brands. Bank of Ireland UK provides simple, flexible, accessible financial services propositions to UK customers, both directly and through partnerships with trusted UK brands and intermediaries. Bank of Ireland has been supporting customers in the UK for over 200 years, and is a separately incorporated subsidiary of Bank of Ireland Group - a leading retail bank in Ireland which was founded in 1783.

For more information please visit our ‘Your Minibus’ page or, alternatively, please call us on 01480 220444. What happens at the end of the contract? Marshall Minibus is able to offer our customers two options for vehicle extensions when the end of contract is reached. An informal extension simply means that the current monthly rental continues on a month-by-month basis, with invoicing changed from in advance to in arrears. An informal extension will automatically start if no instruction has been given otherwise and the vehicle can then be returned at any point without any early termination penalty. A formal extension can be arranged if you decide that you want to keep the vehicle for a fixed period of additional time. We can provide a formal (or secondary contract) for either 6 or 12 months. When the rental is calculated the existing vehicle is treated as a used vehicle and so typically the monthly rental decreases, thereby reducing the cost to your organisation. If the vehicle is returned before the 6 or 12-month period has elapsed, then an early termination penalty may apply. Depending on the age and mileage of the vehicle, multiple Formal extensions could take place. We take a very flexible approach to end of contract damage recharges, and work closely with our industry association, the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA), fully utilising their guidelines and code of conduct for dealing fairly with damage recharges. For more information please visit ‘Fair Wear & Tear’ or, alternatively, please call us on 01480 220444. What if I want to send the vehicle back early? In the event of needing to return a vehicle early, our calculations are made in an open and fair manner using the written-down value of the vehicle in our books at the time of termination, and the assumed market value of the vehicle at the same point. We believe that this method (which would be very similar to that if you owned your vehicles) is much fairer and results in a significantly lower charge than the industry’s norm which is based on charging for a percentage of the outstanding rental. For more information please call us on 01480 220444. What additional services can we offer? As a long established contract hire and leasing company, with a history of providing operational solutions to all shapes and sizes of fleet operators, we have a number of additional services that can be arranged and managed on your behalf. These include vehicle movements, fleet management facilities and sale and leaseback of existing vehicles.

Throughout the 20th century man has built his world around the mobility that vehicle transportation allows. In the UK we have delighted in the pleasures and freedoms afforded us as a result of the internal combustion engine. For most of us our first vehicle journey was from the maternity department, and our last will be a dignified crawl to the cemetery. The emergency services depend on vehicles and passing our driving test is a significant milestone in our lives, signalling greater independence these days than turning twenty one. Vehicles enable us to function as a society. They open up our horizons and yet our personal relationship with the car is costly. “Recent events have shown just how complex and emotive vehicle pollution is and the impact that political intervention has is both positive and negative. The UK government encouraged a diesel revolution which, in the process, obliged vehicle manufacturers to drastically lower emissions. The resulting manipulation of results has been seriously damaging to the motor industry. So it is absolutely essential that a company that derives its revenue from the fleet sector must take its own steps to contribute to the sustainability programme. At Marshall Minibus we start by managing our internal energy expenditure in the office and we recycle and adhere to strict behaviours. Our fleet advice, policies and client offerings are specifically designed to help our end user clients reduce emissions and run their fleets economically”. Jonathan Ross - Sales & Marketing Director In reality there is no doubting the fact that from vehicle manufacturer to vehicle user we all must take action to reduce our Co2 emissions. We recognise that, as suppliers of many thousands of vehicles, we have an important role to play in helping you reduce your emission legacy. We work in partnership with the UK Government in our efforts to help educate and support clients. Energy Savings Trust Set up by UK Government after the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro Non-profit organisation funded by Government and private sector Aims to cut CO2 emissions by promoting the sustainable and efficient use of energy Free consultancy for fleets over a minimum of 50 vehicles, funded by DFT Covers all vehicles, up to 3.5 tonnes Measures carbon footprint with clear and auditable metrics Aims to identify ways to reduce costs and environmental impact Carbon Assessment Marshall Minibus does not see itself as a 'green consultancy'. We believe that clients who want to become carbon neutral will need to consider carefully the options that are available to them whilst ensuring that any scheme they adopt for offsetting is properly audited. There are specialist for-profit companies in this field; we do not claim to be one of those. We have instead opted to work closely with the Government's Energy Savings Trust which provides comprehensive support and advice. Building green into your vehicle policy will have some very positive effects. Sends out a positive environmental message about your organisation Reduces fuel costs Reduces accidents Improves driver safety Reduces overall fleet expenditure Makes a difference Marshall Minibus can assist you with all the above as well as vehicle choice, route planning and CO2 advice.
