Copier leasing companies are always looking for a way to try and get more money in their pockets. You set up a lease on a copier that you like, but the negotiation isn’t over yet. Now you need to set up deals for prints and toner. Unfortunately many people are tricked into paying too much for prints. At Copier Seattle we believe in telling the truth and helping people save money.
When it comes to prints, it’s usually not that people are actually paying too much. The real problem is that people are buying more than they need. Copier dealers would always rather have you buy more than you need because they know that its basically money right in their pocket.
Prints don’t rollover from month to month, so any unused prints are wasted money. They will tell you that getting more prints in the middle of the month will be more expensive, which is true. However, if you are paying for prints that you don’t use then you are already throwing away money.
- You calculate your monthly output and decide that you need 25,000 prints.
- The salesperson might suggest that you buy 30,000 prints, just in case. They offer to knock the price down from $.o15 per print to $.014 per print.
- It may sound like a good deal because you are paying less per print but you are still paying more.
25,000 prints x $.015 per print = $375 per year
30,000 prints x $.014 per print = $420 per year
That’s a difference of $45 per year on prints. It may seem small but over the course of a 5-year lease it adds up to $2,700 of unused prints.
Stop spending more than you need to on prints. At Copier Seattle we recommend buying about 80% of what you think you will use. That way if you need more you can still get it, but you won’t be throwing money away on unused prints. Call today to save money on your copier lease.
