Pre-Return Vehicle Lease Inspections
In this poor economy you can't afford not to fix those parking lot mishaps prior to turning in your lease.
Sun Valley Body and Paint offers a complete exterior paint pre-lease return inspection.
The lease return inspections, 2 inch diameter rule.
When returning your leased vehicle, a vehicle inspection will be completed. The leasing company gives you a Normal Wear allowance for minor imperfections of the vehicle. However, any damage exceeding a 2-inch diameter in size, will be charged back to your for repair expenses. Leasing companies hire body shops to repair these damages, and they could charge anywhere from $700 and up. It is much more economical to have the paint damages repaired by Sun Valley Body and Paint before returning your leased vehicle.
Once your "damage" has been diagnosed (whether correctly or not), the lease company can charge you premium body shop rates for the repairs. You can over-pay for repair methods that are a gross overkill. The more they fix, the more you pay. There is a better way.
The rule of thumb for lease return chargeback for exterior damage is a 2-inch diameter rule. This means any damage to the car/truck exceeding two inches in diameter will be billable to the lessee for repair after the return and inspection of the vehicle. One way to check your leased car or truck for Excessive Damage is to have Sun Valley Body and Paint inspected.
