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

Copy / print overages still a big concern!!

March 8, 2014

 

As competition gets more aggressive and as the business world goes more and more into paperless, the snake oil copier salesman gets more desperate.

We have discussed overages in the past, in fact not to long ago, but I feel it is important to reiterate this. I went out on two proposals this week alone that the customers was fed up with the overages. When I go out on a call like this I play detective, I am not just another salesman in a three piece suit looking to score his next vacation on your dime, I am a master technician of more than 26 years, I also have a very good personality and am honest and trustworthy.

I will visit your site, I will physically go to your copier/printer and print out the usage counters and sit down with you and show you what you do as far as copying and printing, we will discuss your future copying/printing and then, I will be able to pinpoint an accurate calculation of your yearly/monthly clicks. I am so confident in my system that we will if you go over it,we WILL NOT CHARGE YOU FOR IT!.

No other company in this Country will make this bold statement! I know the business well and am confident of my numbers. Call us today for a free quote, we are Long Islands Copier Company, we can take your business to the next level and save you money.

Now this is the trick that the snake oil salesmans do NOT want you to find out !  I have mentioned it at least two times in prior blogs and I ran across it twice this week alone!

With competition this fierce in a stagnant economy, at least in New York, Long Island it is….  The salesman will do everything and anything to make a sale, he/she wants to go on vacation badly and his wife is due for a new Lexis ;-), they are purposely going in and under estimating your volume!, this in return will give you a lower lease/contract price, they do not do this to everyone, just the ones who do significant volume. After you sign the lease or the contract that clearly says OVERAGES ARE TO BE BILLED AT .0125, that’s it, you signed and are bind to that! This in return can be thousands of dollars a year!, not hundreds but thousands!  

Some readers have said to me in the past, “aren’t you a little harsh on the copier salesman”, I am not saying all salesman are snake oil salesman, not at all, but I have seen a lot in action, every week when we go out on calls we hear the horror stories and I am sick of it, I am sick of dishonest people ruining the business, I do not like corruption and I see it in the copier sales business.

Bottom line here folks, if you are getting bills for overages and it is happening more then once and you know nothing unusual has happened to reflect an increase like this, then you need to open your eyes.

 

It is not that hard folks, all machines have counters/meters, divide that by how many months you have your machine, it is as simple as that!!
