Review the following before making the decision to buy or lease a copier:
Copier Leasing Pros: #
- Keeps cash in your business and improves your cash flow.
- Your equipment will stay up-to-date. With a lease your company can exchange old equipment with new technology with no out of pocket expenses. Technology moves fast! One minute you're on the cutting edge. Two years down the road you're lagging behind. Leasing is a good remedy for the "Upgradeitis" blues.
- Leasing offers flexibility. After the end of your lease many companies give you the option of purchasing your copier at fair market value.
Copier Leasing Cons: #
- Your cost of ownership will be higher in the long run. Your payments will end up costing you more than it would have to buy the copier outright.
- You are locked in. In most cases companies require a minimum lease period which can be as long as 3 years. Even if you do not need the equipment anymore you may be forced to make the payments.
*The terms of your copier leasing agreement can be negotiated so these leasing disadvantages could be eliminated.
