End of Contract Inspection and Collection

This section is to expand on what to expect upon the return of your Contract Hire vehicle.

Once your vehicle has reached the end of its lease, you will need to contact us to arrange collection; you will need to let us know the following:

  • Registration
  • Contact name and number
  • Collection address
  • Collection date

The inspection process takes approximately 30 minutes, and the inspector will assess the condition of the vehicle against the BVRLA’s Fair Wear and Tear standard. Any damage that falls outside of this standard will be noted as well as the cost to refurbish or replace any missing items.

You’ll be asked to sign to confirm your acceptance of the report. If there is a charge for; damage, part or no service history, excess mileage, missing equipment or damage discovered you will be invoiced separately.

On the day of inspection, please ensure that:

  • The vehicle is clean, inside and out
  • You have all the relevant documentation to hand (e.g. service book, MOT certificate etc.)
  • You return equipment supplied with the vehicle (e.g. spare key, satellite navigation CD/DVD, warning triangle etc.)
