Sports Car Hire from PB Supercars
The most practical and affordable way to experience driving a supercar is through sports car hire.
Many find the most practical and affordable way to experience driving a supercar is through hiring a sports car rather than ownership
Here at PB Supercars we have had the pleasure of helping thousands of customers realise their dreams of driving a supercar since starting the business way back in 2006. Our customer base is broad and varied. We have seen drivers move from outright ownership to hiring a supercar and also work with customers who just want to try a car out for an extended period of time before committing to a purchase. London attracts many top tier companies and we find the market for supercars is strong, but the capital has challenges for those wanting to buy and store supercars. There are many factors that make hiring a supercar as and when needed a preferred option.
There are many advantages of sports car hire
Sports Car Hire is Cost-Effective
Owning a supercar can be very expensive. You'll have to pay for the car itself, as well as insurance, maintenance, and repairs. Hiring a supercar, on the other hand, is much more affordable as you can rent a supercar for a few days or longer for a fraction of the cost of buying one.
Variety and Flexibility
When you own a supercar, you're stuck with it. You can't just decide to rent it out for a few days or swap it for a different car without incurring significant costs. When you hire a supercar, you have much more flexibility. You can rent the car for as long or as short as you need it, and you can swap it for a different car at any time. The reason you need the car can change. Maybe you want to hire a larger vehicle for weekends away with the family, but want a speedster for yourself the following weekend? Here at PB Supercars we have a wide range of cars for every occasion, For example, some of our favourite hire choices are the magnificent Aston Martin Vantage or the classic red Ferrari Portofino
No Ownership Responsibilities or Risk
Owning a supercar can come with risks. If you get into an accident, you could be liable for expensive repairs. If the car is stolen, insurance can be an issue in future. When you hire a supercar, you don't have to worry about any of this. You pay a deposit and that gives you piece of mind.
When you own a supercar, it is a valuable asset which needs to be accounted for. It is very rare that a supercar can be written off against your tax liability in the UK, but even so, the HMRC will be keeping a keen eye on it to make sure it is not liable for any Capital Gains. Another reason to explore sports car hire is you don’t have to worry about any tax implications.
Maintenance Is a Hassle
Owning a supercar means that you'll have to pay for regular maintenance and repairs. This can be expensive, especially with high-performance sports cars. When you hire a supercar, PB Supercars will take care of all the maintenance and repairs. These are finely tuned machines which need expert care and attention.
Avoiding Depreciation with Sports Car Hire
This is the biggie and is one of the main reasons why some shy away from ownership. Supercars depreciate very quickly. If you buy a supercar, you'll likely lose a lot of money on it the moment you drive it away from the dealer. With sports car hire, you don't have to worry about depreciation. You only pay for the time you use the car, so you're not exposed to supercar market values and trends.
Minimal Long-Term Commitment
Owning a supercar is a long-term commitment that might not match everyone's lifestyle or financial situation. Life circumstances can change, and priorities may shift, leaving you with a supercar that you no longer want or can afford. Hiring a supercar provides a short-term commitment that suits specific occasions and allows you to indulge in your passion for these extraordinary vehicles without being tied to them in the long term.
Are there disadvantages?
Of course, there are also some disadvantages to hiring a supercar. For example, you won't be able to customise the car to your liking, but we have found most owners try and keep the car as original as possible to help the resale value.
You can’t just pop out of your front door and drive away. There is a certain amount of planning involved in sports car hire, but at PB Supercars a significant part of our business is repeat hires, so we build relationships and make the hiring process as simple as possible. We have also found most London based supercars owners rarely have space at their properties to store their cars, so invariably they are in storage anyway.
However, the advantages of sports car hire far outweigh the disadvantages. If you're looking for a way to experience the thrill of driving a supercar without the long-term commitment, then hiring a supercar is the perfect option for you.
