We can give you the right advice for any situation. This includes information you need for other parties, your vehicle’s insurer and any statutory requirements that may apply.
When the accident scene has been cleared, we will arrange towing for your vehicle and a replacement vehicle or taxi, if necessary, so you can complete your journey.
This service is available 24 hours, 7 days a week – where accident management is included in your lease. Please check with your employer’s fleet manager if we do not provide accident management for your vehicle.
If roadside assistance program is included in your lease and you breakdown, or need roadside assistance contact us on 1800 004 588. We’ll also arrange for roadside service for other vehicle problems, for example, if your keys are locked in the car, or a tyre needs changing.
If your vehicle can’t be restarted, we will arrange towing to the nearest Interleasing service centre. We can book a taxi or arrange one of our mini lease vehicles to get you to your final destination.
Fuel and oil
Your Interleasing vehicle is delivered with a full tank of fuel (to a maximum of 75 litres). If your company appoints us to manage your fuel, an active fuel card will be in the glove box of your new vehicle when you pick it up. Please ensure you purchase all of your fuel and oil from designated service stations with this card.
When you fill your vehicle, tell the service station attendant your odometer reading. This helps us manage and report on your vehicle. We’ll tell you or your Fleet Manager if inaccurate input causes calculation errors.
Keep your Fuel Card in a safe place. If your card is lost or stolen, please call us on 1800 004 588 to arrange a replacement. If the card is not reported as being lost or stolen you may be liable for costs charged to the card.
Fine & infringement management
Payment of fines is your responsibility. If we receive traffic or parking infringements on your behalf, they will be forwarded to you, as will all subsequent notifications.
Please pay all infringements by their due date, otherwise further penalties may be incurred. If you ignore payment of fines, it is possible for the authorities to de-register all of your employer’s vehicles.
If we maintain your vehicle and it needs servicing, contact an Interleasing approved service centre. Usually it will be the dealer who delivered your vehicle - or any dealer approved by your vehicle’s manufacturer.
In the glove box you will find your vehicle’s service manual, with a list of the manufacturer’s authorised service centres.
If you are unsure where to take your vehicle, call us on 1800 004 588. We will tell you the closest dealer to your home or work.
Phone the dealer to agree on a suitable day for work to be done.
Tell them it’s an Interleasing vehicle
On the servicing day, drop your vehicle at the dealer’s service centre. Please remind the service staff that your vehicle is managed by Interleasing and advise them of any specific things you believe need fixing.
Getting to Work
Most dealers offer courtesy drop offs to bus and train stations. If you need a replacement vehicle, contact us on 1800 004 588 after consulting your Fleet Manager.

When your vehicle is ready to be picked up you don’t need to pay anything. We process all invoices and payments so you don’t have to worry.
