The cost for a Philadelphia Ricoh copier will vary from machine to machine and dealer to dealer. There are some basic ranges that you should look at before you make the final purchase. Generally, for a used copier, you can expect to pay around 50-70% less than you would for a new copier. With that in mind, most used models are business or production-centric, and the home office copiers are of no value. Here is what you can expect when it comes to price ranges:
- Mid-sized business copiers – $500-$2,000 for a lot of models, while many may be $750-$1000.
- Production-centric copiers – $1,500-$18,000 while most models fall in the $2,000 range.
When you buy your copier, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Try to find a middle ground when it comes to price. Consider buying a copier without the all-in-one features if you do not predict that your organization will be using them heavily, such as scanning, printing, faxing, etc. These features are useful at home, but they are not commonly ideal for business organizations. Copiers have an odometer-feature called a counter. It tracks total usage. Ask the representative what the mileage is on the machine, and then check on your own accord when the machine is delivered.
