Fully maintained vs self-managed lease
You have a choice of the type of lease that suits your needs – either a fully maintained or a self-managed novated lease.
Fully maintained lease
With a fully maintained lease, Maxxia can help you source a new or used car of your choice at a competitive price using their vast purchasing power. Maxxia can also tailor a budget for you that includes your lease repayments and car running costs. This means you don’t have to budget separately for fuel, registration, roadside assistance, insurance and other running costs throughout the year because it’s included in one easy payment drawn from your salary each pay. And you can adjust this budget at any time to meet your change in driving habits.
Self-managed novated lease
With a self-managed lease, you take full control of the day-to-day management of your lease – from organising your own finance and insurance, to setting your own budget to pay for the lease repayments and running costs (which you will need to pay and have reimbursed when sufficient funds are available in your account).
