End of contract

We will write to you 4 weeks before your contract is due to end, however it is your responsibility to arrange the return and collection of the vehicle. Your vehicle must be returned in a legal and roadworthy condition, with a valid MOT certificate (if applicable) and all servicing documentation should be present, with no outstanding servicing or maintenance requirements. Failure to provide this may result in recharges being applied.

Please refer to the BVRLA Fair, Wear & Tear guidelines for information on what damages are classed as general wear and tear from prolonged use, and what damages will need to be repaired before you return the vehicle to avoid damage charges.
