Negotiating a fair copier lease can be a challenge, but it’s only one part of your monthly payment. You have to make sure that you are paying the right amount for consumables as well as print prices. Its areas like these that many people end up spending too much.
To cut down on your monthly print costs you need to seriously consider how many prints you need per month. If you think you use 25,000 prints per month, then stick to that number. Don’t be tricked by salespeople. They will almost always try to make you get more, which will basically always hurt you in the end.
Here is an example of how they may try and trick you.
- You think that you need 25,000 prints per month, offered at $.015 per print
- A salesperson suggests that you get 30,000 prints per month offered at $.014 per print. They tell you that the price per print is lower and you won’t have to ever worry about running out.
- Do not listen to this person. They know that you will likely never use those prints.
25,000 prints X $.015 per print = $375 per month
30,000 prints X $.014 per print = $420 per month
That’s a difference of $45 per month, over the cost of a 5-year lease is $2700 of potentially wasted money.
