Preparing Your Vehicle for the End of its Lease

Once your contract ends, you simply hand your vehicle back to the leasing company. They will usually contact you a few months beforehand to discuss your options going forwards, but there are a few factors to remember before returning your vehicle. On the day of collection, your vehicle will be checked for any scrapes and bumps that go against the 'Fair Wear and Tear' policy. Ensure you have the vehicles MOT certificate, service book and all keys belonging to the vehicle.

Make sure the vehicle contains none of your personal belongings and that all paperwork has been organised before handing the vehicle over.

Your Options

At the end of your vehicle leasing contract, you have various options. Most commonly, those who lease a car, van or pickup truck will opt for a brand-new model, trading in their last vehicle and keeping up to date with the latest safety features and technology. Different contract lengths lead to varying monthly and initial rentals, allowing you to suit your contract exactly to your tastes. As long as you're within your mileage and the condition of the vehicle is up to standard, then your contract will simply end and start all over again with a new contract and your brand-new vehicle.

Depending on the funder, you could extend your contract month by month with little to no change in the rentals. However, this is an informal agreement and the funder could decide to retract the vehicle at any time. If you would like a more formal arrangement, you can opt for an agreement where your contract is extended for six to twelve months.
