END of contract damage charges are often the main cause of the dispute between clients and car leasing companies. It’s that moment when you return your business car at the end of its lease. It’s subject to ‘fair wear and tear’. The BVRLA has produced a definitive version of fair wear and tear, but that doesn’t always mean it’s implemented consistently. Or, indeed, meets your idea of what is fair.
LEASING is often perceived as a form of vehicle acquisition that is reserved solely for the preserves of the “big boys” – large corporate companies that can benefit from great car leasing deals because of the amount of company cars that they run. For this reason, many UK SMEs may not consider car leasing as a form of funding. In fact, leasing a car is available for every type of company, including sole traders and small limited companies, whatever the size of its fleet.
PERSONAL contract hire – or PCH – is essentially the same as regular contract hire; except that it applies exclusively for private individuals. Hirers obtain use of a new car for a contractual period and make fixed monthly payments to a car leasing company for the duration of the contract. When the contract expires they simply return the car to the leasing company and renew with a new car and contract. As a result they never have to concern themselves with the possible resale value of the car.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
