To Buy or to Lease a Copier, that is the Question…

There are several questions to ask yourself when considering purchasing a copier for your business.  When addressing the question of whether or not to buy or lease a copier, it is best to start with summing up how the copier will be serving your business needs. The following is a simple guideline to help any business owner arrive at a solid answer for such a big decision:

How long are you intending on keeping the copier?

If you are intending to keep the copier for a short period of time, then you could find that leasing a copier is going to be an easier, more cost effective solution. This is a much simpler process than buying a new copier and then trying to sell it once you have no more need of it. You could also check into if there is a buyout option in your lease. This way, if your short term need turns into a long-term need, you are not stuck either way.  For those customers wanting to lease a refurbished copier, Copiers Refurbished has partnered with several leasing partners to make your purchasing experience an enjoyable one. An equipment financing contract allows you to acquire your slightly used copier by making fixed monthly payments for the term of the lease. This affords you full use of your remanufactured copier without spending all of your capital upfront. All leases are 24-48 month terms with a $1 buyout at the end of the term. Since our copy machines last an average of 48-60 months, you can actually own your refurbished copier for several years- without payments!

Should I buy a new copier, or can I try and get a good deal on a used copier?

Do your research. You can often times find used office equipment at a heavily discounted rate compared to new equipment. The refurbished copiers sold from Copiers Refurbished are current and recent models that are sold at discounts up to 75% off MSRP, and have been used less than 3 months as rated by their manufacturer’s recommended monthly usage table.

How long until I need a newer model?

Copier technology is changing all the time. For most companies, short term leasing on copiers is a great way to go, because once the lease is up, they can lease a new piece of equipment that is up to industry standards. If you don’t rely on the latest technology, you will usually find it is much more cost effective to hold a longer-term lease with one copier.
