Frequently asked questions regarding used car quality standards
If a used lease car falls short of the inspection, it will not be offered as a lease car. Only vehicles that are up to our rigorously high standards will be delivered.
It takes roughly around four hours to complete an inspection. This is because our specialist mechanics don't want to miss anything when assessing each car.
Everything listed above is included in your inspection. However, there are no guarantees, and some faults, such as the engine's internals, may not be checked.
To offer peace of mind, all our used car lease deals will have at least six months MOT remaining, so your vehicle will be roadworthy.
The inspection comes free of charge with your used car lease agreement. It's imperative that your used car is fit for purpose and provides the service you paid for; that's why we don't charge you for the inspection.
The inspection will have been carried out before you've agreed to the lease, so you don't need to provide anything. If you see a used lease car that you like, it will have recently been inspected by one of our specialist technicians.
We ensure that all used vehicles will be prepared to BVRLA standards and will have less than 40,000 miles at the point of the delivery.
Used cars must have an inspection to ensure that the vehicle is fully functional and as safe as possible. An inspection helps prevent potential dangers to drivers, passengers and other road users by fixing any faults.
