Maintaining My New Volvo

Q. Do I have to arrange my own insurance for my new Volvo?
A. Yes. It is a legal requirement for you to arrange insurance for your leased Volvo; this must begin from the date the vehicle is delivered to your chosen address. Fully comprehensive insurance policies must be in place for the entire life of your lease agreement. Insurers must be made aware that the vehicle is not registered to you but rather the finance company that have facilitated the agreement.

Q. Will my new Volvo be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty?
A. All Volvo vehicles leased by Volvo Cars on Lease are covered by the full UK manufacturer’s warranty.

Q. Will I have to arrange for servicing and maintenance of my leased Volvo?
A. No-maintenance lease contracts for Volvos mean you will be liable for all servicing requirements. Services must be carried out to the specifications of Volvo that are outlined in the vehicle’s handbook. These can also be found in the downloadable online brochure available on our website. Leasing contracts which include maintenance cover all servicing costs. These agreements attract higher monthly fees and initial down payments.

Q. What do I do if my Volvo breaks down?
A. All new Volvos leased by Volvo Cars on Lease are supplied with roadside assistance cover.

Ending my Lease

Q. Will you collect my Volvo at the end of the lease period?
A. Yes, at the end of the lease period your leased Volvo will be collected by an approved driver from the address you specify.

Q. Is there any guidance available on the condition my Volvo should be in at the end of the lease period?
A. All Volvos should be in a condition that is suitable for their age and the mileage covered by the end of the lease period. The BVRLA, an independent body, have Fair Wear and Tear standards that give advice on the acceptable condition for end of lease vehicles.

Q. What happens if I want to end my Volvo Contract Hire agreement early?
A. Ending the Contract Hire agreement before the agreed termination date will require a settlement payment to be negotiated with the finance provider. Typically this is around half of the remaining payments owed, but can vary depending on the finance provider and individual circumstances.

Miscellaneous

Q. Who do I notify if I have an accident?
A. If you are involved in an accident, your insurance company will need to be notified. They will negotiate directly with the leasing company on your behalf. Insurers should be contacted for advice on their specific processes as procedures can vary between insurers.
