Estimation of natural and unnatural car wear
Over time, signs of various damage will appear on the body during operation. Some of the damage is recognized as a sign of natural depreciation that has occurred during the intended operation of the car, while others are recognized as defects caused by the fault of the driver due to a traffic accident or exposure to certain environmental factors.
The purpose of the preliminary assessment of natural and unnatural depreciation is to reduce the inconvenience of returning the car to the purchaser at the end of the leasing period and the disputes over whose fault the damage occurred.
Periodic determination of car defects avoid high instantaneous costs at the end of the leasing period and help reduce costs by eliminating identified deficiencies.
