Thanks for the write up I can see me using this if in between cars when this current lease ends.
Is it literally per month or could you do part month after the first one?
After the first month you can leave with 10 days notice.
I'm in my second month now, used up the 1000 miles and then just under 250 miles at 8ppm. I haven't been billed for them yet as they average them out over the hire term.

So does that mean that if you cancelled on the 2nd of the month you could hand the car back on the 12th and get reimbursed for the remainder of the month?

I’ve just confirmed with EVezy that you can do a part month after the first one. You simply need to give 10 days notice. As you would have already paid for the whole month, you would be reimbursed on a pro rata basis once the car is returned.

If they can add a few Model 3s to their fleet they've got me for sure...;)
I’ve just been told by EVezy that they will consider including any car, as long as it’s fully electric, on the fleet. They want to give people as wide a choice as possible. So Tim, your wish may well come true! Start keeping an eye on their website once the Model 3 is available in this country.

I like the sound of that!

It will be interesting to see how it plays out. I really can't see how they can keep the prices this competitive over time though. Are they keeping prices low to gain market share and planning on increasing over time? I am paying 399PM for my i3 and that is cheaper than anywhere else I looked at for a 25 month lease not including insurance!

Happy to take advantage of the great prices but I can't see it staying the same for ever!

I am now into my second month with EVezy and have been very happy with their service. I got £50 off my second months subscription because someone used my referral code. I haven’t yet found out who it was so if it’s a member of this forum don’t hesitate to let me know so that I can thank you!
Might have been me - I copied a code from another EVezy discussion on the forum when I signed up with them. Came searching for information on them after they were mentioned on the Pistonhead's Lease Deal thread.

I pick up my Zoe on Saturday as a stop gap until I a) decide which BEV waiting list to join or b) take a long term EVezy lease on whatever new comes on fleet. If you take a 6m+ commitment with EVezy they can process your OLEV grant so you are eligible to offset the cost of a home charger.

Glad to help someone as it meant that I saved too

Mystery solved! Thanks Sammyhandro for using my code and as you say we both benefited. Any EVezy members who use this forum will be able to keep in touch using this thread. Where are you picking the car up from? Remember to have the app downloaded before you get there. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see anyone. My car was left for me in front of a café in Kings Cross! Opened it with the app, checked for any damage, and then drove home! My car was about 50% full so find some places to charge on the way home in case you don’t have enough range to get there. Preferably polar plus charge points as you will find one of their cards in the glovebox. Post your experience on here so we know how it all went and remember you'll always get good answers to any questions you may have on this forum.

Good point about the battery charge. I had assumed they were left on a charger but no. Mine only had 4 miles on the clock though so must have been trailered to Windsor. Had about 98% charge when I picked it up

In case anyone doesn't know, the Evezy lady told me you can take out insurance for approx £60 a year and the insurance company will pay the £1000 excess if you had an accident. My leaf PCP ends in August and my car insurance runs out in June. I was thinking of selling my car to we buy any car and currently there is about £1500 over after I pay the balloon payment but that figure may go down. So confused what to do for the best. I'm about 2500 miles over what was agreed which would be charged at 8p per mile. Should I sell the car now or wait till my insurance runs out or should I just hand the car back and pay the excess milage. Our should I keep it till the PCP ends. I don't want to sell privately as I'm a single mum and a bit nervous to have people coming round wanting to test drive etc. What's the best option? Thanks for any thoughts. I'm definitely getting a Zoe from Evezy

Your excess mileage will be about £200 at 8ppm so if you can afford it I would think about paying the balloon and excess milage with the plan to contact one of the ev specialist dealers to see how much they would give you as a no hassle sale.
Then you are free to make the next step be it another PCP or Evezy type rental. Good luck.
Forgot to add, if you are going over your mileage on your current PCP then you don't want to do that with Evezy. 1000 miles a month is included, then the next 250 miles is at 8ppm but after that they really don't want you to go any higher so charge 30ppm and if you constantly go over 1250 per month then they reserve the right to cancel your hire.

Welcome evhappy to the forum and as a fellow member of EVezy! The insurance you mention is Car Club Excess Insurance with icarinsurance. Make sure you sign up the day before you pick up the car as they won’t cover you for a car you already have. For £10 a year extra you can add car rental excess insurance covering you here and in Europe.

Don’t forget to use a referral code from one of us EVezy members on here for £50 off your first subscription (and £50 for one of us as well!)

To get advice on what to do with your present car you may do better to start a new thread as it is likely to be read by more people than this one, which is targeted at current and potential EVezy subscription members.

Where abouts in Windsor did you pick the car up from as I was under the impression they only had two pick up points. Kings Cross in London and Birmingham.

I suggest you contact a few dealers and ask how much they will offer you for it. They will settle the outstanding finance and pay you the balance. I am confident you will get more from a dealer than WBAC especially as they usually haggle the price down when you get there.

EV independent dealers are finding it particularly hard to get stock, so you may find they offer a good price. There are a couple on this forum, such as @Drive Green and @e-Cars

Queen Acre Cottage, Windsor Road, Water Oakley, Windsor, SL4 5UJ

They also mentioned a location in South London I think
