BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Guide - LCVs

Fair Wear & Tear LCV's Guide

The BVRLA's Fair Wear and Tear Guides provide an industry standard for every aspect of the vehicle's condition on return to a leasing company. 

Fair wear and tear occur when normal usage causes deterioration to a commercial or personal lease vehicle. It is not to be confused with damage which occurs as a result of a specific event to the business car or van hire, or series of events such as impact, inappropriate stowing of items, harsh treatment, negligent acts or omissions.

The BVRLA produces three different Fair Wear and Tear Guides:
• Cars: for drivers of leased and financed cars
• LCVs and minibus: for drivers and operators of contract-hired, leased and financed light commercial vehicles and minibuses up to 17 seats
• HGVs: for drivers and operators of contract hire and leased vehicles over 3.5 tonnes GVW

The aim of the guides is to provide an industry-wide, accepted standard that defines fair wear and tear when vehicles are returned to a BVRLA member at the end of a lease or finance agreement. The guides also provide advice for best practice in vehicle maintenance and upkeep that will prevent unacceptable wear and tear from occurring. Defines the industry standard at the return for every aspect of the vehicle's condition.
