Getting a Copier in Minneapolis
Who Stands Behind You?
If you have ever dealt with a less-than-valuable copier company, you understand how great it is when a copier company backs you up on their products. Without firm support, it is only a matter of time before your copier breaks down. We once heard of a company that waited four days before the dealership would send out a technician to service a copier. When you are a business, that period of time becomes a backbreaking blow that you cannot easily recover from. We ask you: Who backs you up?

What about Leasing?
If you are looking into leasing a copier, there are some things for you to consider. The first is contract length. If you want a copier for as long as possible, a 5 year contract would be typical. The advantage to the longer copier lease length is the monthly payments are lower. Let’s take an example of $10,000 copier machine.
If a copier costs $10,000 the monthly costs would look like this –
3 Year – $300
5 Year – $200
Of course if you want to keep the copier at the end of the lease it would be wise to add about 10% to that number.
Why do the Copier Lease?
Most Minneapolis companies make the mistake of thinking their lease means they can trade up if they get bigger or trade down if they get smaller. Leases are a way to finance capital equipment like a copier. The lease isn’t there to ensure you can easily move up or down without a penalty. That would technically be more of a copier rental rather than a copier lease.
What if your current company isn’t performing on their service plan?
One of the main reasons people seem to switch their copiers is because they are unhappy with their service plans. One of the nice things Xerox offers is a Total Satisfaction Guarantee. What this essentially means is you’ll never be stuck with a copier that breaks and breaks. Our guarantee – given by Xerox, is that you are a completely satisfied customer and will be for years. If they can’t resolve your issues, they swap out the copier!
Any other solutions we can offer?
Some of the other things we offer include document management, shredders, envelope stuffers, envelope printers, laser printers, toner cartridges as well as some website work too. We would love to help your company get exactly what you are looking for from a technology partner!
What about cost per print?
One of the bigger questions when it comes to copiers is cost per print. Let’s look at an example or two. Say you are a Minneapolis company who does about 12,000 black and white pages per month and you are paying 1.2 cents each, so you are paying $144 per month. If you are able to get the click rate down to 1 cent ea, that would save you $24 dollars a month X 60 Months would be $1,440 over 5 years. Now the issue comes where you have to ask if the service is the same. If it is, of course it is nice to save the nearly $1500. If it is not, is it worth being down that much?
The numbers get bigger in color. If you have a copier that does 2,000 color prints a month and it costs 7 cents or 9 cents ea – even with that small number, that is an extra $40 per month. For most people focusing on color is a way to save a ton on your copier.
