General information about the return inspection

Return inspection

All vehicles leased from NF Fleet go through a return inspection carried out by an independent third-party company. The return inspection is carried out according to the same process on all leased vehicles. You do not need to book a time for the inspection. The return inspection takes about 30 minutes to complete.

In the return inspection, the inspector

  • checks the vehicle interior and exterior
  • photographs the vehicle
  • documents the content of the inspection
  • lists any details that need repairs
  • provides a preliminary estimate of the repair costs
  • gives advice on how to fill in a damage report, if necessary

In case needs for repair are detected in the inspection, the repairs are carried out in a cost efficient way taking into account the age of, and kilometers driven with the vehicle. For example, minor dents are straightened with methods that prevent damage to paintwork.

You may be present at the inspection if you wish.  This way, you receive the filled in return inspection form right away. If you are not present at the inspection, the form will be sent to you by email in about a week’s time from the inspection.
