Getting a great copier lease is not always easy. There are a lot of people out there who are not interested in getting you a great lease; all they want is to take your money. This is why we always suggest being ready to ask questions of your copier leasing agent. This can help show that you know what you are talking about, help you figure out if you can trust this person, and help you find ways to get a better lease.
These are not all the questions that you can ask, but it’s a place to start.
- What kind of assistance can I expect if I need help with my machine? Are they actually going to want to help you when you need it or will they leave you to your own devices when things turn ugly.
- What is the total financial breakdown of my lease? Don’t assume that your lease payment is everything you need to worry about. Ask for specifics about what you are paying for and where your money is going. This is a great one for determining if they are trying to smooth over a bad lease or not.
- What do you think would be a good match for my business? This is good to see if they are just trying to push you to expensive options. If they want you to spend thousands for something that would cost you a fraction of that then you know you aren’t dealing with someone who wants to actually help you.
Make sure that your copier leasing agent is someone that you actually want to do business with. You two are going to be working together for years. Taking a little extra time to ask a few questions can pay off in spades later.
