8. Dent on door - BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Standard.

Lease Car Guide > Lease Gallery >

Real Examples - Lease Return Gallery

These photos were taken by a lease company (prices 2005).

A dent on a near-side door. The red mark is 'paint transfer' from the car that caused the damage. A charge of £175+vat was incurred. (Prices have gone up and it is now £205+vat for a door)

Typically we could have removed this dent with PDR (Paintless Dent Removal) for £50 +vat. While the red coloured patch in the middle is probably paint transfer from the car that did the damage, this can be removed with some polish, we wouldn't charge extra for this.
