Avoid These Mistakes When Leasing A Copier

When leasing a copier you should be sure you know what you are getting yourself into. You should be sure to ask as many questions as you need to so that you know just what you’re getting for the lease and how long it will be, as well as how much it will be. If you choose us we’ll be happy to help you and walk you through the entire process so that you leave us with no questions and are very happy with the lease contract we come up with.

Here are some common mistakes many businesses make when they get into a lease with other companies:

  1. Picking a copier that isn’t right for your business. Many times lease companies try to lease you the most expensive copier. We go through what you need with you and find the best fit for your business. We do not want you to have to pay more than you need to for a copier.
  2. Auto-renewing contracts. When you have your copier and it is working well, you may forget the end of your lease term is upon you. If you forget and miss the window of when you have to notify your current provider, many will auto-renew for another year, not just month to month.
  3. A base cost increases over a period of time. For example, you could start off with a low cost of 5 cents a color page, but then not notice supplies and escalation fee that applies each year. This could be as high as 15%.  By the 5th year that 5 cents a page is closer to 10 cents a page. The company that offered 6 cents a page without an increase loses the deal but was, in fact, thousands cheaper.

To avoid these extra costs and mistakes make sure to read the fine print and ALWAYS ask questions if you do not know something. It’s better to ask more questions than you normally would than to lose that extra money. Call us today and we’d be happy to help you with any questions you may have and to find the right copier for you.
