What Happens If Your Leased Car Is Damaged?
If you have a lease car, then you will be aware that it is a superb way to save on the costs of motoring. However, when your lease period ends, and you return the car there can be extra charges if you have damage on the vehicle. If your leased car is damaged, it is often a lot cheaper to have it brought back to standard by us instead of paying the penalty at the dealership.
What happens if my leased car is damaged?
When you lease a car, you are supposed to return it in almost the same condition as you received it. There is some allowance for “normal” wear and tear, but each leasing company will have its own criteria to say whether damage is serious enough to attract an extra cost. Usually, the leasing company will contact you a few months before the lease ends to make an appointment for the car to be inspected. They will inspect your car against a checklist and tell you if they have found anything that needs to be repaired. You will get a copy of the inspection report and be told how much the leasing company will charge you if the damage is not repaired. You can then decide whether to repair the damage at your own expense before you return the car, or whether to return the car as it is and pay the penalty. This penalty payment applies whether or not the company choose to actually repair the car.
