Returning a company car

When your leasing period expires, it is unfortunately time to return the company car, which is done via an FDM test center. Below we go through how to return the car and what you need to be aware of.

How should the car be returned?

Your company car must be returned on the expiry date of the leasing contract. If the expiry date falls on a weekend or a public holiday, the car must be returned on the last working day before the ordinary expiry.

When you return your leasing car, it must be freshly washed, vacuumed and cleaned and emptied of personal belongings. You must also remember to bring tires (summer and winter tires with nuts), all keys, anti-theft protection, remote controls and all of the car's documents.

Examination of the car

Upon return, the car is examined by FDM for possible damages and defects. We recommend that the user of the company car or a representative of the company participate in the examination, which takes about 30 minutes, but it is not essential. If there are any remarks about the car, you will sign for these online. Hereafter, the contact person in your company will receive an electronic submission report.

Any damage caused by mounting of accessories or traffic and collision damage must either be reported to the insurance company or paid for by the lessee.
