Do You Lease Your Car Or Truck? Protect It With Bridjit!
Did you know that if you lease a car, you may end up paying significant fees for certain kinds of damage? When you return your vehicle at the end of the lease period, it’ll go through a lease inspection.
What’s A Lease Inspection?
A lease inspection is a visual check by your leasing company. During the inspection, the technician looks for excessive mileage, and damage to the exterior and interior of the vehicle, such as:
- Broken or cracked glass
- Dents or scratches on the body and the bumpers
- Badly scratched wheels
- Broken lights
- Excessively worn tires
- Engine or transmission damage
- Stains or burn marks on the seats
- Excessive damage to the undercarriage parts
The inspector will write down all the damages they find in an inspection report. Depending on what’s in your lease contract, you may either need to pay to have these damages repaired, or pay a hefty fee per damage. This Autotrader article goes into more detail about what types of damage you’ll be charged for. This Edmunds article is also a great resource on lease inspections.
When you lease a vehicle, you’re responsible for the vehicle’s upkeep. If your leased vehicle gets damaged, you may repair it yourself. Keep in mind that if the repair is poorly done, the inspector will mark it as damage on the report anyway.
Protect Your Leased Vehicle With A BRIDJIT Curb Ramp
There are ways to minimize the amount of damage your leased vehicle may get. One of the best ways is to put a BRIDJIT curb ramp in front of your driveway. This is an especially useful solution if you have a rolled curb at the end of your driveway. (If you’re wondering what a rolled curb is, this BRIDJIT blog post explains it well.)
Why Is It A Good Idea To Use A BRIDJIT Curb Ramp?
A BRIDJIT curb ramp is a three-piece ramp made out of recycled rubber. It bridges the gap between the road and the rolled curb. When you drive over a rolled curb (without using a curb ramp), your leased vehicle can sustain serious damage. Some of the most common damages we see include:
- Scratched, dented, or chipped front bumper
- Damaged suspension system parts
- Damaged underbody parts
- Damaged drive shaft
- Bad wheel alignment
A BRIDJIT curb ramp is a good investment that will protect your leased vehicle. If you want to read more about how a BRIDJIT curb ramp will protect your vehicle, check out this BRIDJIT blog post.
BRIDJIT Curb Ramps Are The Best On The Market
A BRIDJIT curb ramp has several advantages over regular curb ramps. For instance, BRIDJIT curb ramps are made out of recycled rubber. This makes BRIDJIT curb ramps:
- Able to withstand all weather conditions
They won’t crack, chip, or warp like asphalt, concrete, or plastic curb ramps may do.
BRIDJIT curb ramps also usually stay in place. It’s because they’re heavy and durable. Moving them would be a two-person job, which makes them difficult to steal.
