Copier companies like to roll you into a new lease on your outdated equipment with a free upgrade on your Madison copier. Should you?
Have you ever been offered a free upgrade on a Madison copier? How about just a “deeply discounted” Madison copier? Well I’m not a betting man usually, but I would wager that it was about 6 months before the end of your lease on your current Madison copier! “How do I know?” You ask. Well after spending some time in the Madison copier sales research I have found a few common factors that are present in many Madison copier leasing agreements. They are as follows:
Costs for consumables can go up (when you accept an upgrade)
Leasing companies offer discounts to the Madison copier companies
Madison copier manufacturers offer discounts
And the kicker to it all is that you don’t get any of these discounts, but you get a “free upgrade” paid for with these discounts and higher consumables rates. So you can end up paying even more than you would if you just rode the lease out and got a great deal on a new lease! Beware, because your new lease on a Madison copier will most likely try to do the same thing down the road, so either knowing exactly what you’re paying for (unless you want to change companies every 5 years) will protect you the most.
