Lease vs Buy Printers-Copiers

Posted by Pierre 15/09/2014 1 Comment(s) Printers,Copiers,Wide Format Printers,

Whether leasing or buying a business machine, the most important initial step is to identify the right machine for your business and decide if you need a standalone printer, copier or a multifunction device.

Once you have made this decision, you then need to consider whether it is better to lease the equipment or buy it outright. Leasing your office printer or copier gives you the use of your office machines for a fixed term based on set monthly payments. Your lease can also be structured to include consumables such as toners together with service, maintenance and technical support.

Buying office equipment involves a very high outlay so if you are a small or start-up business it may make more financial sense to lease your office printers and copiers, as you would avoid the high costs of buying outright. Leasing equipment involves fixed monthly payments for a set number of years. This not only makes budget planning easier but also frees up capital to invest in other areas of the business. Office technology is continuously improving and developing and again, leasing can be a good option when it comes up upgrading your office devices. A lease can be structured to enable you to upgrade to more up to date machinery when the need arises.

Quite often, when buying machines, by the time it is paid for, your office copier or printer is already out of date. In addition, older machines can also be considerably less efficient with higher costs per page. Regardless of whether you decide to lease or buy, the most important step is to identify the correct device to suit your exact printing needs and budget. Mitronics provides all clients with a PRINT AUDIT enabling us to monitor your office printing and copying and advise you on the most suitable machine for your business.

Why is leasing better than buying?.. Leasing a photocopier is one way for you to avoid the initial capital outlay required for outright purchase. Whilst the overall outlay is slightly more with a photocopier lease as opposed to a straightforward purchase there are sound reasons to consider it as a method of finance for office equipment such as an office printer or copier machine. Leasing is a well-established and tax efficient form of finance, enabling cost-effective trade-up access to the very latest technology at the right time. An example of a leasing company that specialises in business equipment such as office photocopiers is a MITRONICS Lease Agreement We hope this guide helps with understanding the key benefits of lease finance as well as offering useful advice if you are looking to lease a photocopier.

I’d like some quotes for leasing an A3 colour multifunction printer. Can’t be a desktop printer - has to be standalone. Please call or email with some quotes.
