There are benefits to renting a copier as well as leasing or purchasing one. Only the client truly knows exactly what the needs of the business are. But just in case you don’t know exactly what your needs are, we can help.
Here are 5 tips that will help you make a more informed decision:
1.Length of Contract
Most copier leasing agreements can last upwards of 5 years. That is a long time to do business with a vendor. Understandably, if you have a good relationship with your vendor that may be a good option.
The benefit to renting a copier is that most copier rental agreements are contracted month-to-month.
What if after a year into your lease the vendor’s quality of service isn’t what you thought it would be? Well, too bad! You’re now stuck with what you signed up for. Unless of course, you would like to pay a large buy-out fee to leave your initial agreement.
Every business is different. Your business might not have a consistent use for a copier machine. Maybe you’re in the construction industry and only need to print when you’ve contracted a job.
The downside to a copier lease in this situation is when you’re done with the job you’re going to have to store your machine. Not only that, but you’re going to be paying monthly minimums for a machine that is in collecting dust.
4.Test the Equipment
Sometimes you just want to own the asset and not have to worry about tedious language in a contract. If this sounds nice to you, that’s okay. Just be aware that renting can save you a lot of headaches.
The benefit to renting a copier machine before purchasing it is you get the opportunity to test its functionality. Will it be a suitable machine for your business needs?
