Copiers are expensive items, so you should do your part to make smart copier purchases. Do your research in advance. Try to find out whatever yo can about your desired copier. Next, if you plan to lease with a company, check with the Better Business Bureau beforehand. Doing so can tell you a lot about a leasing company in order to get the best deal possible.
You want to work with a company that you trust. Don’t be afraid to talk with someone from a company. Some people get scared to call a leasing company because they think they are going to get scammed. However, if your Better Business Bureau search was successful then you should have a good idea of what you are getting yourself into.
Next, create a priority list of the things that you might need. They may include:
- Color vs. Monochrome
- Print Speeds
- Mobile abilities
- Media Sizes
- Security functions
You can decide if the copier will fit your needs by considering these decisions. In addition, examine the online reviews for the copier that you are considering. In some cases, you can learn a lot from other people’s mistakes. Real testimonials can give you a good idea of what problems you may realistically run into.
We always recommend that customers do their research about their copier beforehand. Arming yourself with a good understanding of your machine and the industry will give you an upper hand. The retailer you buy from also matters. A scummy company will always be scummy. Smart copier purchasing is all about protecting yourself from getting hurt later. Do your research early and make a smart copier purchase.
