Fix up that lease!

Hi again and thanks for tuning in to PMS! (Pass Me the Star [Screwdriver]!).  Spring is beginning to peep out (or has already sprung depending on where you are) and with the refreshing weather and transition also comes other points of turnover.  For many, this might be switching over/out a leased vehicle.

I don’t know about you, but my car certainly has a few knicks on it (I really should get them fixed) – it’s not a lease though.  If you are returning a lease in the near future you really should consider fixing up anything “new” on your vehicle before taking it back to the dealership. Why?  The dealership may charge you large fees – more than what you’d pay at an autobody shop.

If you need dent repair; bumper repair; collision repair; and/or any sort of car body repairs Colorworks Express Autobody Centers is your best bet to avoid those service fees at your dealership.  Consider getting a free estimate at one of their many locations sooner rather than later.  If it can save you time, money and stress that seems like the surefire way to go in my opinion!

Thanks for tuning in this week and I’ll catch you next time!


Returning a Lease


Hi there and welcome back to another edition of Pass Me the Star (Screwdriver) or PMS.  This week I want to talk about something that impacts many of us – returning a leased vehicle.   

This can be a bittersweet process. You’ve likely become attached to your vehicle while at the same time you’re excited about your next ride. A potential large hurdle is that you are responsible to fix any “oopsies”beyond what is considered, “normal wear and tear” before you return it. “Normal wear and tear” is different for every manufacturer.  How can you set yourself up for success?

You’re in luck!  Colorworks are lease return specialists.  They know what the manufacturers are looking for and can get your car fixed up so you won’t have to pay any pesky damage fees.  What could this mean, you ask?  What do we as leasing consumers need to be aware of?

1) Bumper damage happens very easily on today’s vehicles.  Anything from a dent to a scratch from resting a box will need to be repaired before returning it.

2) Dents and scratches are a reality of driving a car basically anywhere outside.  Every manufacturer has its own guidelines for the size and number of knicks and scratches permitted on a returned vehicle. Colorworks will find your manufacturer’s guidelines and go over it with you so you are able to make decisions on your repairs.

Colorworks are masters with repairing the above.  They are ready to guide you through a painless lease return.  Give them a call two or three months before the end of the lease so they can hook you up!  Good to Go!

Thanks for tuning in and I’ll catch you next week.
