Fair wear and tear occurs when normal usage causes acceptable deterioration to a vehicle. Fair wear and tear is not to be confused with damage, which occurs as a result of a specific event or series of events such as impact, inappropriate stowing of items, harsh treatment, negligent acts or omissions. The condition of a vehicle is considered under the following:

  • General appearance, road safety, documentation, keys
  • Paintwork, vehicle body, bumpers and trim
  • Windows, glass, door mirrors and lamps
  • Tyres and wheels
  • Mechanical condition
  • Vehicle Interior
  • Equipment and controls
