3 benefits of leasing your printers

There are many benefits to leasing your printers. Here are our top 3 benefits of leasing your printers and copiers:

  1. Avoid obsolescence: Leasing business equipment is a great way to avoid owning outdated equipment —- an issue for some companies. If your business only needs basic printers and copiers, obsolescence isn’t as much a concern as for the type of company that relies on high-tech, highly specialized equipment.
  2. Keep upfront costs low: By leasing, your business can obtain printers with minimal upfront costs, preserving credit. This is a concern for small businesses who have less access to credit and want to avoid using it up to lease equipment.
  3. No hassle: Leasing printers or copiers means there’s no resale or disposal to worry about. It’s also convenient because most equipment comes with a maintenance plan included in the lease or paid for separately.

Leasing Drawbacks

  1. More expensive: When a lease terminates, most businesses will have actually paid more than the value of the leased copier. Even in a rent to own situation with a capital lease, the lessee typically ends up paying more than fair market value for the equipment. Maintenance plans also increase the cost — and when the plan is included in the lease, interest is charged on the the maintenance plan as well as the copier.
  2. Locked into a contract: This can be a negative for small businesses and especially for start-ups. As their printing requirements change, the initial printer may no longer be adequate. On the other hand, business owners can also over-estimate their printing needs and be locked into an expensive lease for equipment that is not needed.
