3. Return your Nissan
We are sad to hear you will no longer be with the Guelph Nissan family. Regardless, we will make this process easy and seamless for you.
NCFS's Customer Remarketing Department will contact you via telephone approximately 30 days prior to maturity to answer any questions that you may have.
Prior to your maturity date, it is strongly recommended that you contact Guelph Nissan to schedule an appointment to drop off your vehicle. You should give yourself plenty time to investigate and explore all of your lease end options to ensure that you make a knowledgeable, well informed decision. Guelph Nissan will ground your vehicle in your presence using an internal website. At time of drop off, Guelph Nissan will print off an NCFS Grounding Receipt to be signed by both you & the Dealership. This form is a receipt acknowledging the date that you returned the vehicle. The grounding receipt is not a vehicle inspection report. An independent 3rd party inspector will complete a detailed condition report within 48 hours of grounding. The condition report is then used by NCFS to determine whether the vehicle has suffered excess wear and tear charges or has been driven beyond the allowable kilometers which would then be charged to you.
To avoid any unpleasant surprises or excess wear and tear charges, it is highly recommended that any potential excess wear & tear issues be remedied by you prior to grounding the vehicle.
