      • Vehicle Return Standards

        Vehicle Return Standards

        When you return your vehicle at the end of your agreement, it needs to be road legal. If it’s not you could be charged, so make sure it has:

        • No warning lights showing
        • Tyres with a minimum tread of 1.6mm
        • No cracks or damage to the windscreen outside of the return standard
        • A valid MOT - remember that any vehicles over 3 years old need an MOT certificate
      • Are there any charges I could incur?

        Charges

        If there is damage we believe is outside of our Vehicle Return Standards, an invoice will be raised for any applicable charges. To avoid any unexpected charges please be present when your vehicle is inspected, as this is your opportunity to view any damage we believe falls outside the Vehicle Return Standards. This includes excess mileage, insufficient service history and extra days rental.

         

        To discuss any queries you may have relating to Charges, chat to one of our advisors now. To find out more information on damage charges, please download our damage chart matrix.

        Repairs

        If your vehicle needs any repairs, you should get these fixed before the return date. This will help you avoid or reduce any additional fees when returning your vehicle.

        If you have a personalised number plate and wish to keep it, it is important to place it on retention with the DVLA at least 10 – 12 weeks prior to your Finance Agreement maturing to avoid any additional charges or loss of your number plate. However, if you no longer wish to keep your number plate please advise Customer Services on 0370 847 0700. Please make sure the private number plate is taken off the vehicle and the new registration plates are put on before collection.
