About Us

Established in 1977 The Wayside Group built up a portfolio of 18 dealerships, mainly selling Volkswagen, Audi and BMW. In 2011 we took the opportunity to sell the dealership group to Jardine Motors and with that capital set up ICR Leasing as we know it.

ICR Leasing is a fully self funded leasing company which means that we are able to offer funding to businesses of all shapes and sizes. We do not use a typical 'tick box' exercise when underwriting our customers. At ICR we like to meet our customers to build an understanding of them and how their business operates. We look at the history and more importantly the future of the business. If we can see success in the future we will look to underwrite the deal. Some of our best customers started with us at only 3 months old, are based abroad or had an adverse balance sheet when we first met. We know that working with our customers rather than using them will help all parties to grow from strength to strength.

Despite being able to offer a corporate service we really pride ourselves on maintaining the family run ethos that flows throughout the company. All of our team understands the importance of service when you run a business. We also understand that all businesses work slightly differently. Therefore we look to work with our customers and build contracts around their needs, rather than expecting them to fall in line with ours.
