End of Lease Repairs in Leicester

Sturgess Bodycraft offers a specialised end of lease solution to our customers, fully tailored to your needs.

The car leasing market faces a £120m bill each year for end of contract penalty charges, with a huge chunk of this being attributed to excessive wear and tear. The latest research on the market shows that 27% of returned lease cars incur an excessive wear and tear charge averaging £231.

  • The most common causes for end of lease charges are for:
  • Scratched or scuffed paintwork.
  • Chips and dents to the car's bodywork.
  • Stains, burns, rips and tears to seating.
  • Damage to wheels and the car's trim.

An End of Lease Solution for All

Whether you maintain a large fleet of vehicles or simply lease a car, our end of lease service is designed to reduce the costs and effort associated with returning your car at the end of the agreement. Our specialist team at Sturgess Bodycraft will assess each vehicle individually, ensuring only the damage deemed unacceptable will be repaired. Our service includes both interim and pre-return inspections with repair work performed with an emphasis on quality and economy.

SMART repairs are preformed wherever possible, with traditional bodyshop work undertaken where needed for larger repairs to more significant damage.

For added peace-of-mind, we use the BVRLA (British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association) Fair Wear & Tear Guide, the industry standard for defining what constitutes acceptable levels of fair wear and tear for a vehicle at the end of its lease period. Because of this, you can be confident that when your vehicle or vehicles are returned to the lease company, you aren't charged expensive penalties.
