When it comes to a typical business copier, you will find the starting point usually around $150 per month. However, a Google search will have you reading a ton of information before you finally talk to someone. We do not work that way! Here in Colorado Springs, we answer your questions so that you do not need to consult Google.
You see the $150 per month and probably think that you own a cheaper printer, where you only pay $60 for ink. While that conclusion comes from logic, you are not seeing the full picture. The smaller printers may only hold 100 sheets of paper, and after you have filled your tray the second time, you often find that you need more ink. While you may have paid $200 for the printer, you have to pay an extra $60 every 200 pages, which means that you will have to pay $120 every time you print 400 pages. We have not even mentioned hiring technicians for when the copier breaks down.
In comparison with a $150 lease, you pay a flat $150 per month. What does that lease bring to the table? 200 color prints and 1,000 black-and-white prints per month. Not to mention, you receive free and unlimited service calls for your copier. When looking at a quote, consider multiple factors. What appears cheap on the surface can end up costing you more in the long run.
