Should I Buy or Lease an Office Printer?
Leasing your office printer can make the right system far more affordable and offers flexibility to make amendments as your needs change without having to invest a lot of money upfront. While purchasing outright avoids the need to set up credit agreements, it can be a worse decision overall due to the quick depreciation of technological equipment.
The Benefits of Leasing Printers
One of the largest benefits is that leasing keeps your equipment up to date – computers and printers become obsolete eventually. When you have a leasing agreement, you can upgrade your equipment regularly so that you’re not stuck with outdated printers and systems. For most businesses, this is the biggest benefit of leasing any tech equipment.
You’ll also have predictable monthly outgoings with no need to pay a large amount upfront. A full printing system can cost thousands, if not tens of thousands, to set up – this cost is often prohibitive, especially for small businesses and start-ups.
The Benefits of Buying Printers
Buying can be simpler than leasing – there are no monthly payments, no credit agreements, and you just decide what you need and buy it.
