Care, maintenance and return

On these pages, we have tried to gather the most important and most requested information so that you easily and clearly see what needs and should be done with your company car. By taking care of your car and following routines and intervals, you also minimize the risk of incurring unforeseen costs when the car is returned.

Top 4 things during the agreement period:

  • Take care of the car both inside and out continuously
  • Follow the manufacturer’s service plan and always service the car at an authorized brand workshop
  • Check the car regularly so that you can detect any damage early. Damages need to be reported to the insurance company as soon as possible (usually within one month from the time of the incident). Then contact an authorized brand workshop for any action.
  • Make sure that everything is included in the return of the car (see our checklist in the section "Return of the car"). This way you save both time and money. You would be surprised if we told you how many people fail to return a set of tires, an extra key or the luggage cover.

Service, maintenance and inspection

Should we just say two things about service and maintenance, these are:

Service the car according to the manufacturer’s instructions..

In the car’s service book, you will find information about what applies to your particular car. You are also always welcome to contact us or your local car dealer.

.. and service the car at an authorized workshop for the car

With the help of My ALD you can see which authorized workshops you have closest to you. Don’t hesitate to contact our technical department or your car dealer if you need assistance.

Remember to service your car according to the car manufacturer's instructions!

By following the service interval of your company car, you ensure that guarantees are kept valid and avoid unnecessary depreciation due to missed service.

You are responsible for the service being carried out on time in accordance with the regulations and you are also the one who contacts the authorized workshop for a time that suits you. When the service is done, check that the service book is filled in and stamped.

In recent years, more and more manufacturers have become tougher in their warranty terms with the fact that service must be performed according to the instructions. Guarantees thus cease to apply if the service isn’t performed in accordance with the regulations. In addition to the cost it entails, the car’s function and safety can also be affected, something that can entail a risk for the person driving the car.

Guaranteed service time

As a driver of a company car from ALD Automotive, you are guaranteed a service time within a certain time frame at our brand authorized partners. Through this link you’ll reach a list of what applies to each car dealer, workshop and brand.


The tyre workshop checks the wear on the tyres at each tyre change. We would recommend you to also examine the tread depth on the tyres yourself at regular intervals. By law, the tread depth must not be less than 1,6 mm on summer tyres and 3 mm on winter tyres.

You should also check the tyre pressure regularly. With the right pressure in the tyres, your car rolls better and consumes less fuel. If you are driving your car with 80 % of the recommended pressure, your fuel consumption will increase by 3% and the tyre life will decrease by a fifth. Recommended pressure for your car can be found in the instruction manual.

Regardless of whether you let a tyre workshop change your tyres or if you change them yourself, the wheel bolts should be re-tightened after five to ten metric miles.

Daily care

As a driver you are responsible for keeping the car in good condition, e.g. that the car is washed regularly and that oil, tyre pressure and lamps are checked on a regular basis.


When it’s time for inspection, you’ll receive a requsition from us well in advance of the due date. You book your inspection yourself to find a time and place that suits you.
