Fair Wear & Tear

Understanding how your vehicle will be assessed

The purpose of this guide is to help drivers and fleet managers clearly understand how they can minimise charges relating to damage or unacceptable wear and tear when returning a vehicle at the end of the contract.

It is based on the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association’s (BVRLA) guide to fair wear and tear. Most vehicle inspectors appraise cars based on these guidelines and so by understanding how these work you will be in a better position to ensure that the vehicle is returned in an
acceptable condition.

To avoid any unforeseen damage charges, there are a few things you can do before your vehicle is collected and taken away for a full inspection.

Please note that this document is intended as a guide only and that Total Fleet does not accept liability for any damage that results in a charge being incurred.
