Still Undecided Whether to Rent or buy a Copier?

The copiers and printers of today do so much more than just copy. They are, in fact, computers that are able to perform multiple document management tasks. Business owners in South Africa who have to decide which of this powerful technology is the best fit for your business, might want to look at copier rental as opposed to buying. Why?  There are plenty of reasons to go for the renting option. 

Let’s take a look at some of them: 

 1. Lower Initial Costs
In any business cost is always a consideration, but more so for start-ups and businesses who are still uncertain about their long-term and copying requirements. The initial expense to buy a copier is usually high, but a company can hardly get by without it and to rent a copier means that there are fewer upfront costs to take into account. This is especially true of companies that require highly specialized equipment in their day-to-day business. 

2. Hassle-free Maintenance & No Replacement Costs
Most copier/printer rental companies in South Africa will rent out their products with a maintenance plan in place, which means that you are not left with the hassle of dealing with equipment malfunctioning. You can rely on the provider for all services, parts and supplies without the added cost of replacing any malfunctioning part. 

3. Flexible Rental Program
Many copier rental companies in South Africa offer a flexible rental program that allows business owners to change the monthly copy volume according to requirements as well as including renting a printer on short-term basis or for a special event. 

4.  Configuration of Printers/Copiers
Configuration of a printer/copier can be a daunting task for most of us. When renting a copier/ printer, all the guesswork is taken off your hands – with automatic Feeder, Sorter, Duplex, Staple sorter, etc. 

5. Tax Deductible
When renting a printer/copier you have the option of 100% tax reduction – No need to depreciate the printer – you can simply write of all the costs as a business expense.
