The benefits of purchasing a used copier

by Copier Guru on August 10, 2022

Less expensive: Companies that want to minimize the money they pay in interest for goods and services will usually opt for buying over leasing.

No contracts: When companies purchase a used copier, they’re not locked into a contract with a third-party provider.


Recoup investment: A used printer can be sold if it’s no longer needed, whereas a leased printer cannot.

 Maintenance flexibility: A leased Copier is the property of the lessor. Which typically means the lessee is not contractually allowed to perform any maintenance. This puts the lessee at the mercy of the lessor when copiers break. On the other hand, if a company owns equipment outright, the owner or manager can immediately call the tech to service company copiers without hesitation or outside approval permission.

Buying a Used Copier Pros:

Buying a low meter-used copier is always cheaper than leasing in the long term because you avoid finance charges. Think of it much like buying a low-mileage used car: You can save thousands of dollars by paying cash upfront and avoiding interest.

Buying a used copier is relatively straightforward. You hand over the cash, and the deal is done. On the other hand, leasing involves an application process and providing the leasing company with detailed financial information and credit checks. At the end of the lease, you must ship your copier back to the leasing company. This task could be costly ( ad few hundred dollars out of your pocket)
