Lease Vehicle Turn In – Do This BEFORE You Return It!
Today, we will be looking at a dent we took care of on a 2018 Ford Escape. If you do follow us on social media, you would have probably seen the picture I posted online that showcased the dent on the car. The car itself is a leased turn-in vehicle which means that the customer was already done with the lease and turned it into the dealership. However, they paid us directly to get the repairs done from us here at Sioux Falls Dent Repair.
When a person gets a car on lease and they damage the vehicle, they more often than not try and repair the car before they return the car back into the dealership. The reason for this is that the customer doesn’t want to be handed a lengthy bill when the car is returned. However, you should always check the lease agreements before taking any car as every dealer offers a different lease and allows different amounts of damage.
Moving over to the fender and the first thing that jumps out at us is the massive 16-inch crease dent. Under the PDR lights, the damage become quite obvious and we will be working on it today. Without the PDR lights, the dent is not really that visible, but it still is there and the customer wanted it out. Most of the scratches can and will be buffed out after we fix the dent.
If the customer took the car into a body shop, they would have been hit with a huge bill because the paint used on the car is extremely high quality. On top of that, Ford uses a colored clear coat on top of the Ruby Red that is used for this car. This adds to the cost of the repair when approaching a body shop.
Want to see what the repairs look like AFTER we are finished, just use the search feature to the left and search Lease, It will come up there.
