How To Return a Lease

If this is your first time taking out a lease, you may be new to the return process. Luckily, we have experienced staff on hand to help you through each step!

How To Return a Lease One of the first things you should do is contact our dealership and let us know that you have a leased vehicle to return. This is especially important if you did not get your lease from our location, as we’ll want to confirm all the details ahead of time.

In the lead-up to this appointment, remember to find all relevant vehicles items, like the owner’s manual, spare keys, cargo accessories, and similar components. Upon your arrival, let us know that you’re here with your lease return. Then, you’ll be invited to sit down with our experts to verify the mileage, discuss any fees, and sign the odometer statement.



What’s Inspected at a Lease Return?

One of the most important parts of a lease return is the lease-end inspection, as it helps show that your vehicle is in great shape. About 60 days before your lease is over, schedule this inspection through the leasing company. For Ford vehicles specifically, you’ll use Alliance Inspection Management (AiM).

You should easily be able to schedule this lease-end inspection online. It’s also possible that the inspection company may reach out to you first, at which time you can pick a day that works for your schedule. The inspection is complimentary and can be done at a place of your choosing.

At the inspection, the inspector will look around the entire vehicle to note any damage to the following areas and more:

  • Body of the vehicle
  • Windshield
  • Tires/wheels
  • Interior upholstery
  • Technology systems

If you’d like to be as well prepared as possible, Ford provides lease-end checklists and a self-evaluator card. Check them out today to do your own inspection at home!

If it’s determined that repairs will be needed, feel free to use our on-site service center. We have genuine Ford parts in stock to get your leased vehicle back in shape before it’s returned.
