Instructions for returning vehicles vary per hire company. Both Enterprise and Leeds Commercial require you to return vehicles within opening hours. For Salford Van Hire you can return the vehicle out of hours to the depot. If you return the vehicle out of hours you are still responsible for the vehicle until it is officially checked in the next morning, including any damage that occurs in this time period. Where possible we would recommend you take photos of the vehicle, inside and out, to prove that the vehicle is returned in a good condition. You will also sign a return hire form where any additional damage or missing items are listed during a walk around the vehicle. By signing this you confirm liability for these costs.
