Questions First Time Buyers Ask About Photocopiers


When you are opening a new business, and you are thinking about renting or buying a photocopy machine, there are several factors that will affect the kind of copier you need. So if this is the first time you have ever rented or purchased a photocopier, here are the answers to some frequently asked questions to help you make the right decision for your company.

Is There A Difference Between A Desktop Copier and a Free-Standing Copier?  A desktop photocopy machine is compact and made to fit on a standard work desk. Desktop copiers are ideal if you have limited space at your workplace, and only need a copier that has basic functions such as copying and scanning. A free-standing copier, also known as a floor-standing copier, is a large photocopy machine that requires quite a bit of room, and is typically installed in a copy room with other copiers or fax machines. The main difference between these two copiers is that a desktop copier is only able to handle a very low volume of copies and requires frequent toner change, whereas a free-standing copier can handle a high volume of copies, and often has additional features such as stapling and collating.

What Is a Multi-Function Copier? -- A multi-function photocopy machine is one that can not only make copies, but is also equipped with a scanner, fax machine and a printer. Many multi-function copiers also have slots in which you can insert a pen drive and download files for printing, scanning or copying. The advantage of this machine is that it is an all-in-one type of copier that can save you money if you own a business in which high volume copying, faxing, scanning and printing are a daily part of your work process.

What Is the Value of Leasing My Photocopy Machine? -- Leasing requires far less of a financial investment upfront, and a leasing agreement for a photocopy machine often includes maintenance service as well as toner refill on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. Another advantage of leasing your photocopier is that you don't have to lock yourself into a long-term agreement, which gives you flexibility. Leasing also gives you the benefit of a lease-to-buy option, which means that your lease payments can be applied to an eventual purchase of the photocopy machine in the future. Leasing also offers you upgrade options, which means that your business will always have the most up-to-date copier on the market.
