Our local business leasing customer from Warrington (Cheshire) visited the CarLease UK team this week to organise collection and delivery of their current / existing vehicle – which were both the Hyundai Santa Fe.
Organising the collection of your existing lease vehicle should not cause you any concerns. About 6 months before the contract end date you will receive notification that your vehicle is due off contract, with further notification to arrive within about 3 months’ before. If you are organising a new vehicle, check with the dealer or credit broker as to what delivery times are expected for the vehicle which you are considering.
As we have previously explored, vehicles will either be a) stock b) allocation c) factory order so do accurately consider the timings of the process. (Read More…)
In the build-up to having your vehicle collected, you need to start to confirm:
· Service history – ensure the service/warranty handbook is in the vehicle, to show that the servicing has been carried out on the vehicle. Some vehicles now record the servicing electronically on the car, or the key. If you are concerned, get the invoices from the dealer or garage who carried out the work and have these ready to present to the representative carrying out the inspection and collection;
· Items – anything that was supplied with the vehicle must be present at the point of collection. This means any car mats, spare wheels, SD cards or sets of keys which were supplied with the vehicle need to be there at the point of collection. If you are missing any items, you will be charged for replacements; and
· Damage – any damage which exceeds the criteria set out by the fair wear and tear guidelines will lead to charges. Excessive scratches, scuffed alloys and large dents will be chargeable. Use the guide to help work out what needs correcting on your vehicle before its return.
The collection process, contrary to popular belief, is not used to catch out customers or lead to excessive costs. However, a contract hire vehicle cannot be treated with disregard just because you do not own the vehicle. If you owned a vehicle outright and were selling it, the price you would receive would be influenced by the vehicle’s condition. This is no different in the contract hire market.
