Web watch: we review what’s hot on the net

CONCEPT Vehicle Leasing vows to offer free, impartial advice six days a week via the phone, e-mail or by visiting its base of operations in Surrey.

Failing that, you can take a look at its website, which covers both commercial and retail vehicle leasing.

The new MINI is featured throughout the site’s design, even though conceptmotors.com does not appear to have an official link with the brand.

Flash navigation takes a few seconds to load and a drop-down style menu system appears. This method is different to most side menus and does take a bit of getting used to.

By clicking on the ‘News & Special Offers’ (no news was to be found in this section) button on the homepage, you can view a table of all the leasing deals that are currently running. No pictures were available of any of the cars.

If you click on the particular car you’re interested in you can request a quote by filling out an online form: you will then be contacted by email or telephone.

With all the products it provides, conceptmotors.co.uk offers a full description of how it thinks particular services will benefit you, spelling out all the advantages and disadvantages.

Conceptmotors.co.uk also offers the option to cover the cost of servicing for your vehicle(s) with a fixed-fee monthly contract and is also licensed to sell insurance products. Unfortunately, there is no way of doing this online.

There is a handy link to a tax calculator included on the site, so you can work out the benefit-in-kind value of a company car and (if appropriate) the car fuel benefit. For the most part, conceptmotors.co.uk is a solid site. Its unorthodox navigation system gets points for originality, but it over-complicates getting around the site.
