Similar to Cell Phones and Computers, technology is constantly changing on copiers. There are new features that are added with each generation of products and if you purchase your equipment there comes a time when the device becomes outdated and you can experience compatibility issues with drivers, software, etc. When you lease on a 3-5 year term it allows the flexibility to avoid having your equipment become obsolete and incompatible with newer operating systems/software.


Having newer equipment will reduce the amount of service calls and downtime on your devices because as they become older, they require more service calls and parts. If we are refreshing them every 3-5 years, we avoid these issues and we can keep the machines running more efficiently. We have some customers that have older equipment and they require constant service calls which interrupts their daily workflow.

Cost of maintenance

As products become older they become more costly to operate because of the increased service calls as well as requiring more parts/consumables. When you lease and we replace this equipment every few years, this is not an issue because we replace the aging equipment with machines that have higher yields on consumables and result in fewer service calls which often results in lowering your monthly expenses.

Tax Benefit

Leasing allows you to keep these assets off of your balance sheet, treating the equipment as a tax-deductible operating expense instead of a capital expenditure.

Avoid obsolescence

Leasing equipment is an easy way to avoid obsolescence, which is a major concern for some companies and a nonissue for others. Businesses that only require basic printers and copiers are usually less affected by obsolescence than those that rely on highly specialized printers with specific high-tech features.

Low upfront costs

Leasing not only allows businesses to obtain printers with low upfront costs, it also helps preserve credit. Many small businesses have limited access to credit and want to avoid using it whenever possible; leasing equipment is one way to do that.

No hassle

When a company leases printers, there is no resale or disposal hassle. Leasing is also convenient because most equipment providers offer maintenance plans, which can be included in the lease itself or paid for separately. Companies with limited IT staff often choose leasing for maintenance purposes alone.

Preserve Credit Lines

Leasing allows companies to preserve existing credit lines for other expenditures.


Less expensive

 It is almost always less expensive to purchase a printer or copier than it is to lease one. Companies that want to minimize the amount of money they pay in interest for goods and services will usually opt for buying over leasing.

Recoup investment

Even though a copier or printer is a depreciating asset, a used device can sometimes be sold if it’s no longer needed, whereas a leased printer cannot.
