If you’re nearing the end of the road with your lease deal, it’s time to think about the future. How do you turn in a leased car and what happens when you return a leased car? Luckily, returning a leased car is simple in Revere, and dealerships like Pride Chevrolet, Inc. work hard to ensure that your experience is smooth and streamlined. Learn all about the lease Chevy lease return process below, and visit our dealership to return your leased Chevy.

Chevy Lease Return Inspection

The process of returning a leased car starts with a basic lease inspection. Around 90 days before the end of your contract, the leasing company or “lessor” will contact you to set up your appointment around Saugus. During the lease inspection, your car will be assessed for “excessive wear and tear”. What counts as wear and tear?

  • Dents, dings, scratches, and scrapes on the exterior, bumpers, and wheels, especially “curbed” wheels
  • Cracks, stars, or excessive pitting in the windshield and other windows
  • Abnormal or excessive wear on the tires
  • Tears or stains on the upholstery that can’t be repaired or cleaned with normal refurbishing

Your inspector will estimate the costs of refurbishing your vehicle by entering data into a computerized template. After the lease inspection, you’ll receive a condition report that shows you what damage was detected and how much it will cost to fix.

Preparing for Your Chevy Lease Return

How can you make sure that you get the best results during your lease inspection? Put your best foot forward, which means taking care of everything that you can to ensure that your car looks great during the big day.

  • Clean out the cabin and wash your car. You can either do this yourself or schedule a detailing at a service center to make your car look spotless for your Chevy lease return.
  • Look for any light scratches in the car, and see what you can do to buff them out. A detailing and wax might do the job, or you might need a bottle of touch-up paint from the manufacturer.
  • Consider contacting a paintless dent remover company to help with small dents and dings in your finish.

If you get your car inspected as-is and find that the repairs seem extravagant, you can often take care of small repairs and then ask for a second inspection. The inspector can verify that the repairs were performed correctly and adjust your bill accordingly.
