Before You Buy Copiers

A group of business employees standing around office copier talking.

Are you ready to add new copiers to your fleet? Don't go for your wallet just yet--there are a few important things to ask before agreeing to anything. Here are the questions you'll want to have up your sleeve!

Buying Copiers With Confidence

In today's world, office copiers are a significant piece of technology. They're smart, well-equipped, efficient, and even more environmentally friendly than their predecessors--which means they're an important investment for your business.

To make that investment confidently, there are a few questions you'll want to ask before becoming the proud new owner of office copiers.

"What is the total cost of ownership?"

This is an important question because it's about more than just the price tag. Total cost of ownership includes things like energy, consumables, maintenance, repairs, and more--which will have an impact on your budget overall. Make sure you know what you're getting into before you buy.

"What is included in the maintenance contract?"

A maintenance contract protects you from paying for every little thing that could go wrong with your new copiers. However, it's important to understand what exactly is covered by this contract, how much you're paying for it, and what to expect if an issue does arise.

"What do I need to know about service?"

Service for your copiers involves a lot of moving parts. Here are a few things you'll want to touch on:

  • average service time
  • after-hours service
  • contact information
  • remote monitoring options
  • 24/7 troubleshooting

If all of these things add up to a service that keeps your copiers safe and functional when you need them most, you know you're about to get a good deal.


Before you buy copiers, it's important to know exactly what you're getting into. Ask questions about total costs, maintenance contracts, and expected services--and anything else you're curious about, too. Now is the time to speak up--before you sign on that dotted line!
