End Of Contract



At the end of the lease contract you must check over the vehicle in plenty of time so that it is returned in a good condition so that you do not receive any charges.

If you need help with this we would recommend you follow the guide lines set out by the finance company and also the BVRLA. They will specify what damages would fall under fair wear and tear so that you aren't spending money unnecessarily.

What to look out for?

When handing your vehicle back it is important to know what to look out for. Most people don't get any charges as they follow these guidelines. The main things to pay attention to are:

  • Scratches or scuffs on the paintwork
  • Stone chips and dents to the bodywork of the vehicle
  • Tears, Rips, Stains or cigarette burns on the seats.
  • Damage to the Wheels like curbing.
  • Scratches over 25mm
  • Scratches where metal is showing
  • Accident damage
  • Missing spare key



On the day of collection an assessor will come to collect the vehicle. Before they take it away they will do an inspection to make sure there are no damages that exceed the fair wear and tear guidelines. If there are any damages you will need to pay an additional charge. If you have exceeded the agreed mileage then there will also be a charge for each excess mile you go over.

When the inspection is complete the driver will sign a collection note and hand a copy over for you to keep. Make sure you hand over the spare key and bookracks that originally came with the car.
