Do new copiers really depreciate 75% after the first few months of use?

How to Buy a Used Copier
May 8, 2014
Believe it or not, copiers do depreciate 75% or more immediately after purchase. When we re-market a slightly used copier, the normal discount is 75% and the copier has to have an original meter less than 1 to 2 months (as rated by the manufacturers’ recommended monthly volume).

Like a car has an odometer, a copier has a meter. Every copier must be in showroom condition and have been used less than 1 to 2 months (as rated by the manufacturers’ recommended monthly volume) in order for the machine to even be accepted into the resale program. The heft sticker on a new copier alone can encourage many savvy business owners to focus on the slightly used low meter copier market.

A properly maintained low meter copier will last just as many years as a new one at a fraction of the cost as long as it is properly serviced by a certified service technician!…

There are many types of copiers on the market today: new copiers, demo copiers, showroom display copiers, factory recertified copiers, refurbished copiers, used copiers.

  • Refurbished copiers.
  • Factory re certified copiers.
  • Demo copiers.
  • New copiers.

So what is a certified low meter copier? A certified used copier must begin with a low page count. Like a car has an odometer, a copier has a meter.

    You are locked into a contract to. For small businesses, especially startups, being locked into a printer lease can be a negative news. As businesses change their printing needs evolve, and a printer that was leased when the company only had 5 employees may not be adequate for a 20-person office.

    Leasing equipment wouldn’t be a business if it wasn’t profitable, and the reason it’s profitable is because the lessee pays interest on it. At the end of a lease term, most lessees will have paid more than the actual value of the copier leased.
