Lease companies now have penalty charges for all damage on paintwork, bumpers, alloy wheels, interior and windscreens on all returned vehicles. Each year hundreds of businesses and private lease customers get charged penalties for minor damage on their leased vehicles. Things like scratches, scuffs, dents, leather upholstery damage and chipped windscreen can all be used by inspectors to charge you the full cost of a repair at main dealer prices. This is an extra cost you may not have budgeted for and can range from £50.00 - £800.00.

Many people are under the false impression that when vehicles are returned, they are given just a quick check over. They are then told everything is okay, asked to sign and the car is taken away. This does happen, but the misconception is that this is the inspection. It isn't! The car is usually just collected by a delivery driver who will give the car a quick check over. He will then get you to sign for the condition of the car, just to prove that he didn't cause any serious damage.
Usually the actual inspection will take place later, it's carried out by the lease companies trained inspector. This will normally take between 20 and 45 minutes to perform, depending on the condition of the vehicle nd is very detailed. Many lease customers don't know that this is the process, or haven't had it explained to them by the lease company. So they are taken by surprise when they are presented with a considerable repair bill.

Of course if you already know of any damage on your vehicle then its just a case of calling us in to repair the damage to as new condition, saving you MONEY when the vehicle is returned.
