Why Might Prefer to Lease a Copier/Printer

  1. Save money up front. You won’t have to spend several hundreds or thousands of dollars up front to pay for the machine in full. The cost is spread over several monthly payments that are affordable for most business’ budgets, making this a more financially feasible option for those who don’t have the capital up front.
  2. Maintenance is less expensive. Many copier rental plans include support and service as part of the program, which can help you save money on service and repair costs.
  3. Ease of service. When your copier/printer needs service or repairs, you won’t have to take a shot in the dark trying to figure out who to call, asking for quotes, and putting your trust in somebody you don’t know to get the job done right. You will have a reliable partner who can tend to your servicing needs, somebody you can call in a pinch when you’re not sure how to proceed.
  4. Get only what you need. Do you really need that machine with every bell and whistle imaginable that the salesperson upsold you? Shopping around for a machine is daunting, and you’re faced with hundreds of options. You might feel that you need something, but aren’t sure of what it does exactly, or if you’ll actually use it. With a copier lease, we’ll assess everything you do currently to make sure you get the perfect equipment.
  5. Upgrades eliminate the issue of obsolete equipment. Even the best equipment wears down and ceases to function correctly. You might try to put everything you can into resurrecting your printer until you can afford a new one. When you lease a copier, this is not the case. Many plans include options to upgrade your machine to newer and more efficient models, which is a huge benefit.

Why You Might Prefer to Buy a Copier/Printer

  1. The cost over time is less. Buying means you’ll pay a lot more up front, but that’s your only financial obligation (aside from maintenance and repairs, that is). Leasing can cost more than you would pay for a machine over the long run.
  2. No long-term contract. Leasing involves a contract for a specific number of years. You will be locked in to that rate even if your business ceases operations until the end date of the contract.
  3. Tax deductible. Buying a copier/printer is a tax deductible expense. While you can deduct your leasing payment, the deduction will only be applied to what you paid that year, rather than the full cost of the equipment.
  4. Flexibility. When you own your equipment, you have the flexibility to hire any company you wish to service the machine, and aren’t tied to specific milestones for maintenance, as you would be with a lease. Premier Business Technologies is the copier repair service in the Baltimore area that you can trust, and when you need service, we want to hear from you!
  5. Regular service can be purchased. In some circumstances, you can arrange for a plan that will include service and maintenance for your purchase. This is a wonderful option, especially if you don’t have a person in your office capable of handling these tasks safely or proficiently.

Making the decision of whether to buy or lease your printer/copier will depend on many factors, as you can see. Contact Premier Business Technologies to discuss your options. We will help you make the best decision for your company. Contact us today!
