    Final inspection to check your car’s condition

    After you return your car, an independent party will perform a final inspection. A few scuffs and scratches are just a part of daily use. But for more serious damage, there may be an additional charge.

    View our wear and tear guidelines to avoid unpleasant surprises later.

    Notify LeasePlan when the vehicle is returned 

    You are responsible of informing LeasePlan when the leasing vehicle is returned. You can easily do this by filling in the form "Report return of car" here!

    LeasePlan will then ensure that the vehicle is transported back to LeasePlan´s Car Centre.

Private Lease

    To-do list before returning
    • The car must be clean on the inside and outside. Remember to remove all personal items. The car is also to have all snow and ice removed
    • All equipment that came with the car when new is to be in/on the car upon return. This also applies to summer/winter tyres. Remember to pick

      up the tyres if they are stored at a tyre hotel

    • Also return all the car's keys, as well as any codes and documents (service history logbook, owner’s manual, etc.)

    • Shred your fuel & service card
    • Remove all your digital tracks in the vehicle
    • Take out the toll road autopay on-board unit
    • Remove any ornamentation
    • All required service and any repairs are to be performed before returning the car
    • The car must be able to be started and test driven and is to be returned with minimum of 1/4 tank of fuel or 80% power

    NB! Equipment not returned with the car must be in LeasePlan’s possession within five days after returning the car to avoid any charges.

    Appraisal and return with NAF

    In good time before the car is to be returned, an appointment is to be made with NAF or LeasePlan´s Car Centre for both appraisal and return. A list of the centres you can choose among, and contact information for each centre, can be found below. The appraisal is made according to set standards described in our return policy, enclosed with the leasing contract. You can also find these guidelines a little further down this page.

    The following information must be provided when making an appointment:

    • Customer reference: 143.73.260
    • Registration number
    • Your telephone number
    • Which service you would like: Option 1: "Assessment of Unfair Wear & Tear" with review of the condition report. Together with a NAF consultant, you will review the appraisal after the inspection. Option 2: " Assessment of Unfair Wear & Tear " without review of the condition report.

    Note! If you choose option 2, you lose the right to lodge a complaint later about the outcome of the appraisal.

    LeasePlan pays for the appraisal. You only receive a receipt that the car has been returned, regardless of which option you choose. The normal time spent on appraisals is 2 hours.
