Returns - Selling or Trading Your Vehicle
During your leased period your vehicle has been
exposed to the normal elements of nature,
variety of road conditions, stones, branches
and everyday "life".
Often this includes accidental bumps, scratches
and scuffs from car doors and bumpers in parking
lots as well as passing bicycles and shopping
Your lease allows for "normal wear and
tear" ... but the cost of repairing the
scratches on your doors, fenders and bumpers
can be charged to you as "repainting"
costs" by the leasing company when you
return the vehicle. These areas must be refinished
to make the vehicle re-sellable to the next
owner who, like yourself, is looking to buy
a nice "clean" vehicle.
We repair scuffs and scratches to a great number
of "lease-end return" vehicles every
week and many car dealerships and leasing companies
have their customers see us before turning in
the vehicle knowing that our repairs can save
their customer several hundred dollars in repainting
costs to the vehicle.
We also see many vehicles
every week that are being traded in or sold
privately and the owner knows a "clean"
vehicle is of more value to the dealership or
