Return of a leased vehicle: Fair and transparent to the end

With Deutsche Leasing as your fleet partner, you know what to expect when you return a leased vehicle right from the start of the contract. We are a member of the Association of Brand-Independent Fleet Management Companies (VMF) and valuate all vehicles fairly and transparently according to VMF guidelines when they are returned.
Independent experts, a comprehensible settlement and a painless return process guarantee you a contract end without surprises. In partnership, fair and transparent – that is our self-image as your mobility service provider.

Of course, we will advise you on the return process even before the contract is signed and will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding repairs or damage. With our full-service leasing offering and individual service modules, you are able to optimise your fleet in a more cost-predictable way.

Fair vehicle valuation – leasing return at Deutsche Leasing

Simple, efficient, comprehensible: When you return your vehicle at the end of the contract term, you benefit from maximum transparency and a certified vehicle valuation. “The fair vehicle valuation VMF®” allows you to check all criteria concerning damages or defects right at the beginning of the contract. This means you enjoy a high level of security without unpredictable costs. Transparency and fairness determine every aspect of the return of your leased vehicle:

  • Option for nation-wide collection of the vehicle by our logistics partner
  • Certified and transparent valuation criteria
  • DEKRA-certified vehicle valuation by independent vehicle experts
  • Complete documentation of all damage in a return report
  • Option to inspect the TÜV-certified return process
  • Maximum transparency in settlement

Maximum transparency without surprise costs

The VMF guidelines for vehicle valuation classify damage that has arisen over the course of the term into three categories. Damage resulting from normal use of the fleet vehicle will naturally be free of charge at Deutsche Leasing.
Signs of wear that exceed normal wear and tear during the period of use are calculated using the reduced value method. Using the reduced value as a basis for calculation offers leasing customers considerable savings potential compared to calculation of the repair value. As a matter of principle, our experts check the possibility of repair before replacing parts and give preference to the most cost-effective method.
Only safety-relevant defects, damage that has not been professionally repaired or maintenance/inspections that have not been carried out must be charged in full. Our maintenance and repair service modules along with our claim management module make it easy for you to protect yourself against this.
