End of contract damage charges continue to be a bone of contention between leasing companies and their customers.

This year’s FN50 survey shows that the percentage of vehicles incurring damage recharges at end of contract has risen for both cars (up two percentage points from 37% to 39%) and vans (up four percentage points from 40% to 44%).

The average amount that van operators are being recharged has fallen from £414 last year to £376 but for cars it’s an upward trajectory.
