One of the biggest mistakes you can make in your copier lease is to not read it thoroughly. Too many people fall prey to sneaky sales people that make them sign bad leases. They fall into a sense of security and end up with a bad solution for their office copier needs. That’s why it’s always important to look closely at your copier lease to make sure you are getting the deal you think you’re getting.
Copier leases are long agreements that you cannot break. Just because you did not know that you needed to pay for something doesn’t mean that you are exempt from that payment. That’s why you need to make extra sure that you are on the same page as your copier leasing company.
Here are some of the areas you want to pay the closet attention to before starting a copier lease.
- Cost Per print breakdown
- Maintenance agreements and contracts
- Consumable pricing and contracts
- What added features are you paying for?
- Automatic rollover on your lease
- Your responsibilities when the lease is ending
This is just an area to start when looking through your lease. Always ask your representatives as many questions as you feel you need to until you are comfortable. Don’t sign something until you understand it, or you could be stuck with the consequences for years to come.
