Charging for copier scans?

September 27, 2017

I went up against a big Canon dealer here on Long Island, the customer gave me some paperwork to review and asked me if I can compete as my company came highly recommended. I saw that this competitor was very close on the numbers for the copier lease itself but then noticed that they charge for scans! It appears that a number of companies are doing this now. You see, they are cutting the cost per copy to compete against other businesses and then they stick the customer with scan charges!

I remember the talk about this 17 years ago but nothing really came out of it because it was very obvious that something like this is just another way of “sticking it” to the customer.

But yes, this past month I met with two different customers who are using a very large, well known Canon dealer and another big Sharp dealer here on Long Island that were victims of this ridiculous fee of charging for scans.

You see, the big copier dealers are desperately trying to survive as the average customers yearly volume is dropping because of more paperless technology and E fax and going green that they are seeking another “niche” to stick it to the customers.

Don’t worry, at PJD Business Machines (Long Islands Copier Sales Company) we never did nor will we ever charge for scans.

Feel free to contact us and we can put you in the right lease for your company, if it is a desktop copier or an 80 cpm full blown copier, our sales team is here for you and will work out the best deal possible.

Remember the old saying, if it looks too good to be true, then chances are it is.

Beware of the Snake-oil Salesman!

I want to buy a copier without a contract or a lease, which copier has the best CPC?

March 23, 2014

Some customers do not want to deal with leasing, they do not want to be tied into a leasing company and they rather just purchase the copier outright and pay for service when it is needed.

Although I do recommend a contract with a highly complex piece of equipment such as a Multi functional copier but if you don’t, I really have nothing terrible against it.

So, which copier is the is best and why?

Lets say you are in the search for a 30-35 CPM machine. The best hands down would be Copystar, I am not saying that because I really like them but stating this because it is what it is!

The Copystar CS3010 has a maintenance interval of 600K!, what does this mean in plain English?

The Copystar will not need drums, developer, fuser units for 600k! lets say they do not make that yield like ALL manufactures suggest, and I mean ALL! lets say the drums last you half that, still 300k before a drum change! that is amazing!

lets look at a few other top Manufactures and what they offer:

A Canon copier in this copy range will need drum replacement every 75k, to many in this range, that is once a year, so count on once a year on having a big expense. Good machines but a little needy.

Ricoh copiers is the same, count on every 60k a drum replacement along with developer and shortly after a fuser unit overhaul. Good machines but VERY needy.

I just have you a tip, I am not a snake oil salesman but a veteran technician and I am sharing with you very good information in my industry. All I ask you to do is bring a calculator and do some math.Image

It sometimes ta…

It sometimes takes weeks for my copier service provider to return with a part they ordered for the machine

Wow, I have not heard this in years! I mean, we live in an age where business can not afford to be sloppy and to be prompt is everything now a days…. We picked up a customer yesterday who has four machines, two Kyocera/Copystar copiers and a few HP laserjet printers. How could a copier service company on long island neglect this? I guess the company got too big? I guess some companies wont pay any attention to you unless you have 20 machines or more? I am very shocked by this but heck, we picked up a new customer who paid, right on the spot! They are also considering upgrading the Copystar cs5050 to a new copystar cs5500!.

Just like the big box stores like Home Depot, you can go there, go in there, find stuff…. but good look being taken care of like you would get at a small local hardware store. PJD Business machines is like that small local hardware store. You like fast reliable and knowledgeable technicians?  give us a try, what do you have to lose unless like like waiting two weeks or more for parts.
