Lease Return?

When returning a lease vehicle, it will be inspected for any damage that falls outside what is deemed “fair wear and tear’ (the damage that occurs to a vehicle during normal use).   You will be liable to pay for any excess damage that is found outside of fair wear and tear, in the form of lease-end penalty charges.   Some of the most common problems that result lease-end penalty charges include:

  • Scratches over 25mm (relative to the vehicle’s age and mileage)

  • Scratches under 25mm (where the primer and bare metal is showing)

  • Accident damage and dents

  • Wheel damage due to kerbing

Selling your car?

According to a guide on www.lovemoney.com; “In 2011, the Office for Fair Trading found that 96% of customers received less than they were originally quoted by webuyanycar.com” due to damage on the vehicle.

 

webuyanycar.com says:  “Whether you’re selling to a private or trade buyer…” “…If damage or potential repairs are not detailed correctly when looking to sell, it will more than likely result in you receiving less than your initial expected price.”   “Scratches and damage to alloy wheels and trims can also have a noticeable impact on a car’s resell value. It is worth considering having these repaired by a specialist before you put it up for sale and lose value for each damaged rim.
