Once upon a time, office equipment leasing companies were not exactly easy-going about the way you returned equipment at the end of a lease – items still had to be in good working order, after all – but they had a tendency to be understanding of minor cosmetic damage. Scuffs, scratches, and dings weren’t important enough to damage a client relationship, so many firms would be willing to waive damage charges.
Today, as we continue on in an uncomfortable economic environment, and the world’s eyes are fixed on the slowly looming peril of Euro-geddon, leasing companies in general and office leasing equipment companies in particular, are becoming far more mindful of their margins. It’s not that these companies don’t want to waive damage charges – it’s that they can’t afford to any longer.
