Vehicle Return

Things to be aware of when your vehicle is returned to Volvo Car Leasing

Vehicle condition and inspection process

At the end of your vehicle’s contract period you may choose to buy the vehicle, or you can notify Volvo Car Leasing that it is available to be collected. This fact sheet highlights what you need to be aware of before, during and after the collection of your vehicle. We recommend that you spend a few moments to make sure that you are familiar with the content of this fact sheet.

Prior to collection
Please check the vehicle prior to collection:
• To ensure that it is in a roadworthy condition, so it can be driven
• To ensure that private registration plates have been removed physically and via DVLA Either transferred to another vehicle or placed on retention (plate transfer
is co-ordinated through the Volvo Car Leasing Fleet Administration team).
• To ensure that a valid MOT certificate is in place,where applicable.

Not carrying out these actions may result in you, or your business, incurring an aborted collection charge. 

On the day of collection
On the day of collection our agent will appraise your vehicle and provide you with a vehicle condition report. They will record the mileage and request the following
items are placed in the vehicle, or there may be a charge:
• Any accessories supplied on delivery
• Current road fund licence
• Spare keys
• Locking wheel bolt (if applicable)
• Vehicle operating manuals
• Service book

Personal effects
Please make sure that you have checked for and removed any personal effects from the vehicle. Once collected, Volvo Car Leasing cannot be held responsible
for the return of personal items left in the vehicle. 

Inspection of vehicle’s condition
A full vehicle inspection will then take place at one of our designated disposal centres by a qualified Vehicle Inspector using the BVRLA fair wear and tear guidelines.

As our policy is not to charge for a vehicle’s return condition unless necessary, we recommend that you carry out a pre-collection appraisal so that you are aware of the vehicle’s condition and that any remedial repairs can be scheduled prior to the return of the vehicle. Thanks again for choosing Volvo Car Leasing.
