Car Body Repairs For, End of Lease Vehicles

Updated: Jun 2, 2021

Leasing a car is a perfect scenario until it comes to the end of the agreement and you have to worry that the car is in the best condition for its return. The leasing companies are very thorough with their checks, so if you have any cosmetic damage on your vehicle and it is noted within the car inspection, you can expect an expensive repair bill at the end of your agreement.

The lease car company will have wear and tear guidelines which you must review. Each lease company will have general guidelines that have been directed by The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) – the leasing industry’s trade body – which provides general guidelines as to what constitutes fair wear and tear. These independent guidelines ensure the rules are clear, easily understood and fair for everyone involved. It is the guidelines from your specific finance provider that you must follow to ensure you avoid any unexpected costs at the end of your lease contract.

To safeguard that you don’t get any hidden surprises, ensure your car has any scuffs or dents repaired in time to return your vehicle. Using a professional body shop is a must. You don’t want to attempt the repair work yourself and make the situation worse.
