Does the age of my vehicle impact the end of contract damage costs?

The age of a vehicle has no bearing on charges for damages that have been found to be outside of fair wear and tear.

When BVRLA members review deterioration in the vehicles condition at the end of a contract or finance agreement, they consider the age, mileage, and whether the vehicle has been looked after sufficiently.

Fair Wear and Tear should not be confused with damage, which occurs as a result of a specific event or series of events, such as an impact, inappropriate stowing of items, harsh treatment, negligent acts or omissions.
