Questions

Arrow downCan I expect any charges when I return my vehicle?

If your vehicle is returned with mileage that’s over the contracted amount, you will receive an invoice based on the following calculation: recorded collection mileage minus (-) contracted mileage = excess miles x the mileage variation adjustment (pence per mile). You’ll find your mileage variation adjustment price in your contract.

Arrow downFair Wear & Tear - what's acceptable and unacceptable?

The links below will help you understand what is and what isn't acceptable fair wear and tear. Assessing fair wear and tear generally depends on the age and mileage of your vehicle.

Certain types of breakages and damage, however, are not acceptable, regardless of age and mileage. T and these include missing items or broken glass, accident and impact damage.

In all cases, we will endeavor to assess damage recharges fairly, charging on a repair rather than replacement basis where possible. When our independent partners complete their inspection, they will send you a condition report which outlines any damage on the vehicle outside of Fair Wear and Tear. This report will also detail the repair method and cost, and an appraisal report will be prepared for our used vehicle buyers.

For examples of what is acceptable or unacceptable, please click on the links below.

Arrow downMy vehicle has advertising/logos – what should I do?

Advertising stickers, sign writing, decals (including glue residue), regardless of size, must be removed by a professional before collection. Removers should use the heat method and not a sharp implement which may damage the paintwork.

There will be a charge if the vehicle is returned with any advertising/logos in place.
