One of the biggest mistakes that people make with any kind of lease is not paying attention to what happens at the end of your lease. Many people take great care to know what happens during the course of their lease as to not get fined. However, not enough people consider that there are still fines and payments that can happen on the back end. Understanding the process of ending a copier lease is just as important as any other part of your lease.
Look at your lease before it’s too late. One of the biggest things you need to figure out is whether or not your copier leasing company is picking up your copier for you. This is generally not the case. Copier leasing companies don’t want to help you if they can make money.
Shipping a copier with a traditional company can cost upwards of $500, especially if you wait until the last minute. Copier leasing companies know that you may not want to pay this much, especially if you didn’t know about it. They will use this as an opportunity to offer to ship it for you for free if you resign your lease. This is just a tactic to bully you into a new lease.
Check to see what the shipping rules are. Generally toner must be shipped in sealed pastic bags and some other small parts may need to be packaged on their own as well. Make sure you are following these rules.
Ending a copier lease incorrectly can cost you hundreds of dollars. Do your research and save the headache.
