buy or lease

When it comes to copiers and printers, you want to be sure you're making the best decisions--but there are so many decisions to make. Luckily, one decision--buy or lease--can be made easier by asking yourself a few simple questions.

The Right Call

No matter what industry you're in or what kind of tech you have, copiers and printers will always be a big part part of your world. That's why it's so important to make the right call when it comes to actually getting the machines. There's a lot to consider, from finances to legal agreements to maintenance contracts and certified technicians--but the good news is that, with a few simple questions, you can find out what works best for your business.

What to Ask

Ready to find out if you should buy or lease your printers and copiers? Let's get started!

#1: "What do our finances look like?"

Buying copiers and printers is a big upfront expense. It is, however, a cheaper option in the long run, so it's important to consider your company's needs both now and in the future.

Leasing, on the other hand, allows you to make fixed monthly payments--but it will cost more overall.

#2: "How long will the devices last?"

When you buy copiers and printers, you're responsible for them forever--maintenance, repairs, replacement, everything. However, if you need the machine long-term and the technology is likely to be useful in the future, it might be worth it.

Leasing, meanwhile, generally means that you'll have a maintenance contract and certified technicians--so you don't have to worry about the details. You'll also be able to upgrade the machine whenever your lease allows.

#3: "What do we need?"

If you choose to buy copiers and printers, you have to know ahead of time which functions and features you need, both now and in the future.

If you choose to lease instead, you have a bit more freedom to change depending on your company's growth--as long as your lease allows it, that is.
