Digital Copiers - Advantages over Analog

There are many types of copiers on the market today: new copiers, demo copiers, showroom display copiers, factory recertified copiers, refurbished copiers, used copiers, both in analog and digital. With all the options, features and costs associated with copiers, it may be challenging to sort through the choices and make a valued decision. Re Certified - Refurbished canon copiers are generally just as reliable as new copiers, but hold a significantly less price tag. Refurbished models can be purchased either as analog or digital. Analog copiers use a much older process to make copies. Digital copiers hold significant advantages over analogs, can be quite cost effective, and provide the highest quality printed duplications.

Can you give me some buying tips on how to get the best copier for my investment? Wow, I donít know where to start!

There are definitely some dos and doníts to consider when purchasing a copier.

Of course this depends on the accessories and speed your office requires. Though tempting, donít buy the low-end all-in-one copier that costs around £300.

Believe it or not, copiers do depreciate 80% or more immediately after purchase. When we re-market a slightly used copier for a leasing company, the normal discount is 75% and the copier has to have an original meter less than 3 months (as rated by the manufacturersí recommended monthly volume).

Does the monthly volume on my copy machine affect my copier service contract?

In one word- Yes! The larger your monthly copy volume the lower your cost-per-copy (CPC) service rate will be on your copy machine. To help you understand, think of the copier dealer handling the service contract on your copier machine. If youíre monthly copy volume is only 2,000 pages and the service rate is .012 then your local dealer would get £24/month.
