There is a big difference in the cost if you are to purchase a used copy machine compared to the a brand new unit. It’s almost always half the price of the new units. How the unit was acquired can greatly affect the values of a used or reconditioned copier. This type of machine may be bought, once you go to the store or you can have it as leased. Example, if the machine that you choose to lease is a brand new unit and it costs $200, having the used unit of the same type that’s leased may cost you $100 dollars only.
You don’t have to worry about the services that the used machine will need since many dealers only endorse the used units which were bought as brand new. And also, most of them would treat the machine like how they handle the brand new ones.
Another advantage in getting a used machine would be its features. You can enjoy the features that you need without paying for them. There are machines which have the extra features included and would cost you less compared to getting a new machine for a higher price plus the feature that you need which you may have to pay for since every additional feature requires additional cost.
How to get a used copy machine?
If you are scouting for the prices of used machines, you will know that buying them from the dealers will cost you more than making the purchase from individuals. The reason for this is that, the ones that comes from the dealers will be fully maintained by them.
When a contract for the lease ends, most customers would lease a new unit. The customers have the option to send the unit back to the leasing company for disposal and another option would be having the dealer by the used unit from the leasing company for them to sell to the customers at a lower price.
The dealers choose the machine that they decide to buy from the leasing company. This will be based on the machine usage since they don’t want to sell just any type of used equipment. What they would only get is the one that has a low usage.
Getting the machine from the dealers when compared to getting it online or from someone and having no idea how they got the item, could provide more benefits. The unit which you got from the dealers are guaranteed to be of high-quality, since they maintain the used machines until its projected lifespan and they can also trace where the machine came from and how it was bought.
If your final decision is to go for the used copy machines, make sure that you know where the machine came from and how it was maintained, since it may cost you more if you just bought the item from someone or somewhere and have no idea how they have handled the machine.
