Fair Wear & Tear

Your vehicle must be returned in good condition as well as be clean inside and out. If the car has any damage, please contact the Helpline to be advised whether to repair the damage or not.

Inchcape Fleet Solutions (t/a LeaseMyCar) is a member of the BVRLA and adheres to their guidelines on fair wear and tear. The BVRLA guidelines set out what is considered to be fair wear and tear on your vehicle when it is returned at the end of its contract.

BVRLA Fair Wear and Tear Guide for cars

Inchcape Fleet Solutions (t/a LeaseMyCar) will not charge you for any vehicle damage that is considered fair wear and tear but you may be charged for any damage over and above this level. It is therefore important that you are familiar with what is considered to be fair wear and tear.

We advise drivers to check the condition of their vehicle regularly. Approximately three months before the end of your vehicle's contract or finance agreement, check your vehicle for any damage and compare this to the BVRLA fair wear and tear guide. Any damage that would not be considered fair wear and tear should be repaired prior to the vehicle being returned to Inchcape Fleet Solutions.
