There comes a time as a business owner where you have to make some tough decisions. Some can be easier than others, but there are times when it can be a tough one. Knowing that your copier lease is about to expire might cause some anxieties. You’ve most likely gotten used to having your copier machine running your operations at your office location for the entirety of your lease and you probably have piece of mind knowing that it’s working just fine.
It’s a copier machine that your team is comfortable using and has grown to live with to get the job done. Sometimes towards the end of your lease, you may start thinking about all of your options to see what would be a smart next step at this point. There may be a couple things on your mind that could influence your decision. Always know that your questions are valid and you have every right to research or talk to your copier vendor about the options within your copier lease.
Your vendor may be able to shed some light on not only your options, but also the entire process of your end of lease term. Do you want to re-lease your current machine and continue like you have already? Would you like to switch copier vendor and just terminate your copier lease currently? Or would you like to look into upgrading your current copier machine for a newer, more current model with a new lease during your next trade in? These are a lot of questions to try to figure out on your own. But there is a lot of help! This is not a decision that you have to make on the fly and with no preparation. Time to do your research, ask questions, and find the option that is best for you!

Choosing To Upgrade
One of the options you have, and a great one is upgrading your current copier machine for one that is newer and maybe even better! When upgrading to a newer machine, it usually means you will be going into a new lease agreement for that machine. So it’s basically like hitting a reset button when it comes to your copier lease agreement. Getting a brand new, upgraded copier is definitely something to be excited about; but remember that there are some things to consider about this new lease agreement. Make sure to try and get all the details that could sneak into making your new deal not so sweet.
What Happens To Your Old Copier Machine
One thing that you may not be thinking about with upgrading to a new copier machine is: what are you supposed to do with your old copier machine? Now that’s something that not everyone thinks of the first time around, until they’re stuck with their old machine and a big bill to get it back to the leasing company. It is as simple as asking your copier vendor if they can take your old copier out of your office space for you and return it back to the leasing company. Returning this equipment on your own could turn into more of strain and pain then the reward of getting a new one, so make sure to ask if that’s part of your upgrade deal.
Other Options Outside Your Agreement
If you’re not ready to give up your current machine just yet, then there is always the option to ask about extending your current lease. Or if you have the need for a new machine, while still keeping your older one then you can ask about an agreement where you may keep your paid off older machine while also getting an upgraded new machine. This way you get more equipment while keeping the machine you know and love. Whichever choice you go with, make sure it is the best decision for your growing business.
Copier Upgrades Should Make Things Better
Sometimes it may feel like a lease end is always a bad thing and not something you want to go into again. But that multifunctional printer is something that makes your business better and the quality it creates is always something you can use more of. It has become a staple in your office space, and is not something that you want to find yourself without. Make sure that you are getting the same, if not better, service and maintenance agreements with your new machine that you had with your older machine and make sure to ask about the accessories that you already have or may want.
Upgrade Help Your Business Grow
These kinds of additions will make sure to give you the comfort and peace of mind that your older copier machine was giving you. Get something new and updated to grow with you as your business does and be able to support your quality and growth! The end of your lease doesn’t always have to be a bad thing, it can turn out to be a great opportunity to upgrade your office space and business!
