Short Term Copier Rentals: When to Rent Instead of Buy or Lease


short term copier rentalThere are different ways to acquire a copier. You can buy a new machine, buy a used machine, or lease a machine.

There’s still one more option that everyone overlooks – short term copier rental.

If you’re not ready to commit to owning or leasing a copier long term, then short-term copier rental may be the best option for you.

You can walk in and leave with a copier today at a price you’re comfortable with. When it’s time to move on, you can return it with no strings attached.

Situations Requiring Short Term Copier Rentals

There are a few situations where short-term copier rental makes sense to a customer. I would likely advise renting over buying or leasing if any of the following applies to you.

New Businesses

For a brand new business without any established credit, leasing can be an issue. It’s unlikely a new business will have the cash on hand to buy a copier outright, so renting is now starting to look like the best option.

We know you may not want to think about it, but there’s always the risk of a business venture not working out as planned. If that time comes, you don’t want to be stuck making payments on equipment you don’t need.

Mobile Businesses

Some businesses are frequently on the go. Take a film crew, for example. They might film in 6 different locations over the span of 6 months. It’s not uncommon for these types of companies to rent copiers when they get to their destination, rather than taking one with them when they travel.

No Commitments

Leasing is the most inexpensive way to acquire a new machine. Monthly payments on a lease are lower than the cost of renting month-to-month, but renting comes with the benefit of being able to return the machine when you want.

A lease cannot be canceled. When you sign a lease you have committed to making payments for the length of the term. For some, the idea of no commitments is what most appeals to them about copier rentals.

No Credit Checks

Credit checks are required for leasing equipment, but they are not required for renting. Customers who cannot qualify for a lease can always turn to renting as their next best option. Renting a machine will also give them the option to save up and buy a copier, or establish some credit to get a lease.
