Use this guide in full:
Use this guide to look around the vehicle and make notes of any visible damages that you may spot. Your own pre-collection inspection helps you to understand specifically what damage there is on the vehicleand helps avoid any surprises in terms of unexpected costs.
Ensure that your vehicle is clean inside and out:
When you inspect your vehicle and, also importantly, on the day of collection, ensure the vehicle is in a clean condition inside and out. If your car is dirty, it makes it more difficult to spot and make a note of any damage. If your vehicle is dirty on the day of collection, pick-up could be aborted and you may be charged for the rescheduled collection.
Inspect your vehicle in natural daylight
Park your vehicle in good natural daylight, avoiding shadow cover from trees etc. This will help you to spot any dents or scratches that may otherwise be difficult to see.
