Getting the Perfect Hardware:
In looking for the perfect hardware, you will want to ask some questions that are important to ask.
- Do you need 11 X 17 paper?
- Do you need stapling?
- Do you need color?
- Do you need wifi?
- How many paper trays?
Getting the perfect service plan:
When getting a service plan, you need to know if you have all of the toners, the fusers, the maintenance kits, the labor, the travel, etc included. If you are unsure, you should seek clarification.
Here are some things to avoid:
It is best to avoid contracts that have year upcharge provisions on your copies. This will read like “XYZ Copy has the right to raise your rate by up to 8% if coverage exceeds standard coverage or market prices fluctuate.”
It is best to avoid service that is not sure to remain. A one man copy company, for example, that does their own service. If they have a manufacturer do the service, that will be fine.
It is best to avoid FMV leases, $1 Buyout is far easier in the long rung because you won’t have to pay to package and ship a huge copier back and the end of the lease and you get to keep using the copier if it is great.
