BVRLA Fair wear and tear guide
Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions is a member of the BVRLA and adheres to their guidelines on fair wear and tear. The BVRLA guidelines set out what is considered to be fair wear and tear on your vehicle when it is returned at the end of its contract or finance agreement.
Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions will not charge you or your employer for any vehicle damage that is considered fair wear and tear but you may be charged for any damage over and above this level. It is therefore important that you are familiar with what is considered to be fair wear and tear.
We advise drivers to check the condition of their vehicle regularly and report any damage to their fleet manager. Approximately three months before the end of your vehicle's contract or finance agreement, check your vehicle for any damage and compare this to the BVRLA fair wear and tear guide. Any damage that would not be considered fair wear and tear should be repaired prior to the vehicle being returned to Hitachi Capital.
