Despite the best of fleet and driver intentions, accidents and bumps will happen.
Fleets and their drivers should document any scrapes on an accident card. Not only will this provide a paper trail when a car goes in for maintenance or repairs, it will also provided documented proof of damage at the end of lease that can be used to counter any inflated charges by the leasing company for refurbishment.
The card can also be used if the event of an accident. It provides space to document any damage to a third party’s car, including details of any injuries, which will help fleets to manage uninsured loss recovery.
