Getting a good deal on your copier is only part of the equation when it comes to saving money. You need to make sure that the price you are paying for stays the same during your lease. Many people just see one price and assume that price is permanently locked in. This is not always the case. It’s important to do whatever you can to avoid having your prices raised, and that’s why our team at Denver Copier is here to help.
When it comes to price raises you need to know the difference between inflation and an actual price raise over time. It can be expected that your lease may go up a bit because of inflation. There is nothing a copier company can do about the national economy. However, some contracts have sneaky provisions that allow them to raise prices after a few years.
Here’s an example of how this would affect your business.
- Let’s imagine that your copier leasing representative gave you a great deal on a 10,000 print agreement. They say that you will get 10,000 prints for $100, which is a great price on the market.
- But then your lease begins to rise by 12% after year two.
- By your fifth year of your agreement you are paying $157 for the same 10,000 prints. This is not a good market price.
Do your research and be careful. Don’t assume that every company is going to have your best interests in mind. If you are not careful then you could end up paying far more than you should.
