Car leasing is an attractive proposition to lots of drivers, as it allows many of us to get a real taste for a vehicle and how we feel driving it without necessarily having to stump up huge fees for the privilege. You could compare it to renting a home, and in many ways the two are very similar – not least when it comes to the end of the lease.
As any experienced tenant will be able to tell you, once you return a property to its owner you may find that you’re met with a few unexpected charges. Lack of cleanliness, damaged furniture and unkept gardens are some of the more common reasons for extra charges, and car charges are very similar in this regard. If the leasing broker sees an opportunity to get their hands on more of your hard-earned cash, they will.
What can I get charged for?
There are a few common grounds on which you can expect to face additional charges when returning your leased vehicle:
Should I face the charges? Or should I carry out the repairs myself?
Allow us to paraphrase this question – would you leave your rental property dirty, unkept and needing repair work knowing that your landlord or estate agent will charge you extortionate amounts to put it right?
No? Well, we’d say the same about returning leased vehicles. To put it simply, it just isn’t a risk worth taking.
