End of Lease Repairs Swansea

Is your car coming up to the end of its lease? Does it have an unfortunate scratch or dent on the body? Don’t worry, Them Paint Guys specialise in end of lease car repairs.

Returning a damaged lease vehicle can result in unexpected (and sometimes expensive) costs for minor repairs. We understand that lease cars can easily acquire minor damage during the lease period, whether its a scrape on the edge of your car door, or a scuff on the bumper.

When you are looking to return your car, you are going to want to look at potential options for removing any scratches or dings without the additional penalties that the company you leased the car from are likely to put on the repair. That is where we come in.

Our end of lease repair service is fast, efficient and could save you a considerable amount of money in end of lease penalties. Whether you have paintwork scratches, minor dents, or bumper scuffs, we've got you covered with our SMART repair service. 

In the past, when a car was scratched or damaged, it would need to go into a car body shop where they would remove the damaged panel from the car in order to repair it, potentially taking a lot of time and costing a lot of money.

SMART, short for Small to Medium Area Repair Technology, is a method of car repair that allows for us to focus on a smaller area – meaning that we can repair the damage without needing to remove the panel. Using a SMART repair technique means that we can conduct the repair far quicker and more efficiently, saving you money in the long run.

SMART repairs can be used for both scratches and dents. We use MIPA colour matching technology to match any paint repairs precisely, ensure that the repair can’t be seen once the end of lease car repair has been completed.

Lease Repair Guidelines

The British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association (BVLRA), the governing body who oversee vehicle leasing, has produced a number of Fair Wear and Tear Guides, to provide an industry standard for the vehicle’s condition on return to the leasing company. It is also important to check your individual leasing company’s terms and conditions, as to what they will accept as ‘fair wear and tear’, to make sure you don’t incur any unexpected costs.

There are many ways you can reduce the likelihood of receiving end of lease charges. It is recommended that you thoroughly clean the interior and exterior of the vehicle before returning to the leasing company, as you want to present the car in the best possible condition for inspection.

Another measure is to have any damages, dents and chips repaired as and when they occur. Them Paint Guys will arrange a mutually convenient time for the repairs to take place, ensuring the damage is rectified in time for the vehicle to be returned to the dealership. 

What do we get asked about End of Lease Repairs?

Will the repair be visible after my car has been repaired? - If you have just had your car repaired, you don’t want the repair to be visible afterwards! Our MIPA SMART repair colour matching technology perfectly matches the colour and pigmentation of your car. This allows us to blend the repair into the surrounding area.

What happens if I don’t get scratches on my car repaired? - If you choose to return your car with minor scratches and dents then the results depend on your precise contract. That being said, it is often the case that, dents or scratches can be considered “excessive” wear and tear can result in penalties. The penalties are often more expensive than getting the repair seen to before returning, and could include additional fees on top.

How long do End of Lease Car Repairs take? - One of the great things about the SMART repair technique is that it takes a fraction of the time a traditional car body repair in a traditional body shop. That said, how long an individual repair takes depends on the damage. Most minor dents, dings, or scratches can be repaired in a couple of hours.

How much do End of Lease Car Repairs cost? - We specialise in affordable and convenient repairs, based around our customers’ satisfaction. The cost of your end of lease repair depends on the damage to the car and the size of that damage. A small dent, that doesn’t break the clear coat of the car, will cost less to repair than an extensive scratch that spans several panels. That said, we do aim to be as affordable as possible. There is no need for your repair to break the bank.
