Fair Wear and Tear Guide - Cars

When you take out a Business Contract Hire agreement, also known as a business lease, it is important to remember to take care of your lease cars.

After the end of a contract, all lease vehicles returned to LeasePlan are expected to meet certain standards. We call the minimum standards ‘Fair Wear and Tear’.

At LeasePlan, we abide by the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA), Fair Wear and Tear Policy. We will check the vehicle for damage and only charge for items covered by the policy.

Inspection is carried out by a third party to ensure that it’s fair and unbiased. We understand that cars are likely to have one or two small bumps during your agreement, so we'll cover you for the first £150 of damage subject to the policy. Vans are more susceptible to knock and bumps, so we have taken this into consideration and have produced a separate Fair Wear and Tear Commercial Vehicle policy.

We have prepared the following Fear Wear and Tear Guide for cars for complete transparency.
