One of the best ways to save money when starting a new business is to buy used equipment. The price range for this equipment is much lower than buying something new. However, there are many pitfalls that used equipment inherently has which new equipment does not. This goes for used computers, used furniture, and used copiers. When purchasing used, think about these ideas before handing our money over.
What will you do if it breaks down?
Used equipment generally isn’t under the original warranty. That doesn’t mean there is no warranty. Many shops that sell used equipment have a warranty available. This warranty automatically applies or has to be purchased. Don’t try to save money by not purchasing a warranty. It is better to have one and not need it then to need it and not have it.
Does the company offer an upgrade service?
Many companies will have a service available to upgrade your equipment after a set amount of time. This allows you to purchase a low cost used piece of equipment with an eye on the future. When your business starts to grow, there will be upgraded equipment available for cheap.
For any questions about used copiers and warranties, contact your local professional company for assistance with the details.
