Much too often, the decision of getting a copier unit through lease ultimately depends on how much it will cost to lease an office equipment; everything else becomes secondary and the lease price becomes the deciding factor. The cost of the machine itself does not determine the lease amount. To get the bottom line, you need to understand the costs that are associated with leasing a copier and a multifunction printer that affects the net cost of the lease.
Here are some of them:
- Is the copier colored or black & white?
- What is the print or copy speed?
- How fast do you need it to be for your use?
- Does the copier have finishing options such as a sorter, automatic stapler, hole-punch, or saddle stitching for small documents such as pamphlets and brochures?
- What is the copier’s paper capacity?
- How much paper do you need to load on the copier or printer each time?
- Do you think you will need additional paper trays?
- What is the lease term?
- Do you prefer to pay for a shorter period or distribute the cost along a longer timeline?
Calculating the Lease Amount For Your Office Equipment?
Coming up with the final figure includes knowing all the variables that add up to the total cost. The lease company will provide you with all the options that can be made part of your copier when you lease it. Additional lease features (such as finishing units, paper trays, fax options, and software upgrades) together with the amortization table plus any associated fees will amount to your total lease payment.
On the average, a lease payment will be somewhere around $25 for every $1000 of the copier price or MFP for a five year copier lease. A device that costs $12,000 will amount to a lease payment of around $300 a month depending of course on the options that accompanies the lease. Bear in mind that the shorter the lease term, the more expensive it is and longer lease terms tend to be lower because of the extended pay period.
Leasing a copier or a printer is a good idea to consider if you want to hold on to your capital or if you need to put your money somewhere else. Lease amounts starts as low as $100 and can go as much as $600 or more depending on how many copiers you lease and what additional options you want to include. The figures would of course change if you are leasing production-level copiers that can handle higher workload at increased speed.
