One of the biggest worries for people thinking about leasing a car is often the cost of repairs at the end of the lease period. What many of these people don’t know is that the BVRLA issues industry standard guidelines on what is and what is not acceptable damage.
In this article we are going to look at what is considered fair wear and tear to the interior of your vehicle when it is returned.
Upon returning the vehicle an inspection will be carried out, the inside should be valeted and cleaned of rubbish to enable this to take place.
The interior upholstery in the passenger and driver area including seats, headrests and trim must be clean and odourless, this includes no stains, tears, dents or scratches. All seats must be present.
Carpets should not have holes. Torn or spilt floor coverings and damage surrounding trim panels is not acceptable.
Interior fittings such as seat belts, rear view mirrors, lights, sun visors must be present, intact and free of damage.
Scratches on the treads, sills and seals of the door aperture, boot, boot liner and luggage area that reflect normal use are acceptable.
Accessories such as parcel shelves, load covers, restraining straps and nets must be returned with the vehicle.
All original equipment, accessories and controls must be present and operate correctly. This includes satellite navigation discs, secure digital (SD) cards and remote units, headphones, electric vehicle charging leads, Bluetooth and other integrated systems.
If accessories such as telephone and other non-standard equipment have been wired-in or mounted on the dashboard, any hole or other damage must be neatly repaired when they are removed.
If you are unsure of any of the above, please speak to an approved repairer for advice or go to The British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association or BVRLA website. They have produced Fair Wear and Tear Guides for more information. (Link: http://www.bvrla.co.uk/service/fair-wear-and-tear-guides)
