Returning a Leased Car at United BMW

If you’re currently leasing a vehicle, you should have a good idea of what will take place when you eventually return it to the dealership. Returning a leased car is usually very straightforward, and you can consult the official guidelines on BMW lease returns before you stop in.

The guidelines below will help you get started and learn more about your lease-end options—even if you’re planning on returning your leased car early!

What to Bring When Returning a Leased Car

When you are returning a leased car, there are some items that you should bring with you.

  • Your pre-inspection report
  • Your odometer statement
  • Any keys and accessories that came with your vehicle
  • Your owner’s manual and maintenance booklet
  • Your maintenance records
  • Your driver’s license and insurance card

If you have any questions before you drive in from Milton or Johns Creek, feel free to contact us at any time.

Returning a Leased Car: Step by Step

When returning a leased car, there are some steps you should follow:

  1. Contact our financing team to find out what needs to happen before you bring the vehicle to our dealership. Generally, you’ll need to complete a pre-inspection and certify the number of miles on your odometer. For the best experience, reach out at least 120 days before your lease ends.
  2. Confirm the location of our lease return center.
  3. Arrive at least 60 minutes prior to closing time.
  4. Report to the service desk and give your Driver’s License, lease agreement, insurance card, and keys for the vehicle being returned.
  5. If we determine that excess wear or excess mileage has impacted the value of your vehicle, you may be held responsible for associated fees or damages.

When you lease a car, there are many regulations to follow. One of the most important is that you must return it in good condition. Make sure you know what can be done and not done with it before making any decisions, and always keep up with scheduled maintenance. If your pre-inspection turns up damages, you can fix them before you return your leased car to our dealership.

Returning a Leased Car Early

If you’re not sure what to do if you want to return your leased car early, just call our financing team. If you’re not taking any action on your lease agreement, they’ll tell you to keep going with it until the end of the term. So, can you turn in a leased car early? You can—but in general, you’ll still be responsible for any remaining payments unless you find someone to take over the lease. Alternatively, you might decide to buy out the lease and bring the model home for good.

We may also offer other options for the driver who wants to return their leased car early and start a new lease or loan right away, so be sure to reach out before you make any final decisions. Your lease-end fees might end up being lower than you’d expect!

Set Up Your Lease Return at United BMW

Our lease return center is easy to reach from anywhere in the greater Marietta area, and our financing team is more than happy to answer any questions you have as you prepare to return your leased car. Contact us today to learn more or make an appointment.
