With the economy being the way it is at the moment as a business owner a simple way to save money is by buying refurbished copiers. A good quality copier is a purchase that is mandatory for any organization whatever the size, yet it is also a significantly expensive buy. Of course you could buy brand spanking new and line the manufacturers pockets or you could make your money go further by purchasing a refurbished copier. The difference could be a saving of as much as 85%. Used copiers can present superb value for any small business, start-up or corporation. Any organization owners or managers with a limited budget must look to save funds where ever feasible, especially for costly color copiers that ought to last a lengthy time to vindicate the cost. Copiers refurbished to a high degree are a great way of slashing thousands of bucks - 10's of thousands on high-end digital copiers - off store prices. A rental copier is another option but when you are saving a good deal of cash on a refurbished copier it is sensible to buy a low-cost unit for the long-term.
When you buy a refurbished copier via a reputable supplier (Canon copiers and Ricoh copiers are particularly popular) you can be rest assured that thorough care has been taken to retain quality, performance and reliability as close to a new copier as possible. The buyer will not only acquire an as-new device, but in addition gets a considerably cheaper alternative to the retail cost.
The thorough method of copier refurbishment begins by ruthlessly weeding out any but scarcely used copy machines that continue being in great condition. These copiers aren't just wiped down on the outside and sold on but are taken apart, worn parts are replaced, cleansed internally and then go through a scrupulous 90 points service check-list. The copier/printer is then completely tested to ensure it performs as anticipated. When buying refurbished copiers make certain you test the unit fully. Additionally, make sure you check out the copiers meter. This will tell you how many copies it has processed (think of it like a cars mileage check) and to judge how heavily utilized it has been in the past.
Probably, the most crucial element for you as the client, will be the new guarantee on the refurbished photocopiers. This should give you peace of mind as it means the rebuilt copier and its performance have been repaired to a high level. It's often worth negotiating a more lengthy copier warranty (it's always worth a try in business to save further costs!). In addition you may want to consider a maintenance contract with your supplier ensuring that all the parts that generally degrade over time for instance the drum and belts are covered by the contract.
