Frequently asked questions

Which leasing company do I conclude a leasing agreement with?

If you make a private lease request via the Carver website, we will share your details with one of our lease partners. They will then contact you to discuss the details of the lease agreement. The final agreement is made with the relevant lease partner.


Why is acceptance needed?

It is important for you and for our lease partners to establish that the monthly obligations are appropriate for your personal situation. In order to determine whether entering into a Private Lease agreement is financially responsible, our lease partners work together with EDR Credit Services. They provide our lease partners with advice as to whether the application is sound, based on your personal situation. EDR Credit Services does this by applying a financial capacity standard.

How does the acceptance process work?

After you have filled in the private lease application form, you will receive an email from the leasing company with the next steps. A credit check will take place and your personal data will be checked. Within 5 working days you will hear whether your lease application has been accepted.


Is a deposit applicable?

Can I waive the return period?

Yes, you can waive the return period. To do this, you must sign a Waiver of Reflection Period with the lease company, whereby the sales advisor co-signs the document on behalf of the lease company. After signing the Waiver of Reflection Period, you pay any down payment and the lease company will order the Carver directly from Carver Europe B.V.

What to do with the Carver at the end of the term?

If the term of the lease contract has expired and you do not want to take over the Carver, you can hand it in at a location specified by the lease company. There they are familiar with the collection procedure of the lease company.

What does the first monthly invoice say?

The first invoice you receive for the monthly instalment contains the monthly instalment from the day of delivery to the end of that month. At the same time, or shortly afterwards, you will receive the invoice for the next (full) monthly instalments.

How will the invoice be sent to me?

Our leasing partners work on the basis of electronic invoicing. This means that you receive the invoices by e-mail. It is therefore important that you inform the lease company of a change in your e-mail address as soon as possible.

How does the payment of the invoice work?

This is always done by direct debit; you sign the SEPA direct debit authorisation for this with the lease agreement. It is not possible to stop the direct debit during the term of the agreement.

Are there any other costs associated with the Private Lease?

In addition to the monthly instalment, only costs for flat tyres or for replacing tyres in the event of excessive wear and tear, and the personal contribution in the event of damage can be charged.

Early termination

Can I end my lease early?

You can terminate the lease agreement prematurely, at the earliest on the first day of the second year of the lease period. You have to observe a notice period of at least 1 month. To terminate, send a letter or e-mail to the lease company. In case of early termination, you have to pay a termination fee. This termination fee is separate from the settlement of any damages and other amounts. The termination fee must be paid before the day of termination. If this has not been done, the termination will have no effect and the lease agreement will continue until it is terminated in another way. If you want to terminate the lease agreement in the first year, you pay the monthly instalments up to and including the first year in full. After that, the cancellation fee will apply.

What are the costs for an early termination?

A cancellation fee applies in the event of cancellation. Contact the lease company for an exact calculation of your specific situation. The amount of compensation consists of the total of the following components: a. the difference between the book value calculated in an annuity manner in accordance with the accounts of Carver Europe BV and the market value or the proceeds upon sale; b. A compensation for loss of profit of Carver Europe BV, which is fixed at an amount equal to a maximum of 1/4 of the remaining lease installments with a minimum of three months, which you as contracting party would owe Carver Europe BV for the remaining duration of the lease contract; c.
