Lease repairs

Many new cars sold today are subject to a lease or finance agreement. Companies taking back a car that has been sold with a lease or finance agreement will thoroughly check the vehicle’s condition for damage – leaving no stone unturned!

If your lease vehicle has incurred any damage, Southdown Bodyshop can inspect your vehicle before it’s returned which could save you a great deal of time, money and hassle. Do not risk any high return charges.

If your lease or rental company discover any damage, the costs can soon mount. Prior to handing your vehicle back, we can ensure your rental vehicle looks as good as the day you collected it in order to avoid any unnecessary charges.
