A Tip to know when leasing a copier

October 19, 2012

I just want everyone to know this and it does not matter which company you choose to lease a copier from, when you are quoted a monthly lease payment, it does NOT include sales tax! The leasing company factors this in at your local States tax rate. Also, most of the time an application one time fee is charged. I am upfront with my customers or potential customers and let them know full well before they sign the lease.

so if you did not know this, here are a few tips when leasing you should know:

1) You will be taxed so when you see the monthly lease price/ quote, it does not include you local sales tax.

2) You will be paying a one time application fee to the leasing company.

3) At 60 days prior to lease end you MUST notify the leasing company and let them know what you are going to do. (keeping the machine, sending it back,) you must also mail them a letter of intent and keep good records of this and all phone calls, they are sneaky and will try to get you into additional months if not paying attention.

4) You are responsible of sending the machine back, most companies will absorb this expense providing you are buying from them sort of a gray area here but technically YOU are responsible for the lease return machine.

5) Most leasing companies will charge something called an “Interim Rent” this is the difference between the time the machine is installed and the first bill is sent to you, it only happen once but it does happen.

6) It is your responsibility to make sure the machine is working properly and nothing is broken at the time of return.

7) If you enter an all inclusive lease and the company (service provider goes out of business) its your loss,very few times in my 27 years have I seen a company getting recourse. Phil has said from the  beginning, NEVER ENTER A 5 YEARS LEASE!, To me, this is just crazy. If you cant afford or do not want 3 year buyout then go with 3 years FMV lease.

 

Types of leases:

A FMV lease is Fair Market Value, which means and the end of the lease the machine goes back or you may purchase it a fair market value, this is the cheapest way to go.

A dollar buy out lease is a lease (typically a little higher a month then a FMV) but when the lease is over, you buy the machine for $1.00, no catches it is Black & White.

Some companies have to get the latest and greatest machine every three years and money is not an issue, for this customer a FMV lease works out well, three years and out the door.

For the frugal customer, the one who closely watches expenses and is fiscally responsible, the $1.00 Buy out lease is very good, after three years you own the machine and if you were picked a good model machine, there is no reason why the machine can not last 7 years. Trust me it works out in your favor this way, just do the math.

I hope this has helped you and if you need anymore information please contact either Phil or Peter at PJD Business Machine at (516)785-3299 or visit us on the Web @ http://www.pjdbusinessmachines.com

Why would you buy a HP MFP as your main source of copying???

March 29, 2012

Why would you buy a HP MFP as your main source of copying???I walked into a new customers account today, they were sold a medium sized HP MFP 5035 by their previous salesman and was unhappy with their CPC (cost per copy) well, again I ask, what did you expect? They sold you a 50 cpm machine that does it all but you did not figure out the cost of toner? Bad fiscal responsibility, My company sells 50cpm multi function machines that yield 500k on drums and rollers and 30k on toner, the toner cost $120.00 for 30,000 copiers, did you hear that? When the salesman takes out the calculator and starts bringing out the graph charts, look out! It is really quite simple here folks. I ended up selling this customer a Copystar cs520i, this is a real machine and gives you real cost per copy efficiency, to be quite honest, I cant even use his trade in machine as anything of value, the cost per copy is so high on that HP MF Copier that it would be counter productive to even use it as a loaner or a rental. Be very careful of the snake oil salesman folks! they are out there and are very hungry for new customers, we at PJD Business Machines, a true Long Island Service Company will only tell you the truth, we would rather turn down a sale, than to mislead you into buying a machine that wont benefit you and your bottom line. Visit out many pages on our website, www.pjdbusinessmachines.com, speak to Peter or Phil and we can come down to your office for a free evaluation and recommend the right machine for you. Remember, its the service after the sale!!!

So you are looking to cut cost in your business…

February 8, 2012

So you are looking to cut cost in your business and decided to not take the advice of your Copier Service provider and upgrade the copier or (mfp) to a new Commercial machine and you went out to Staples or a box store and purchased a cheap $400.00 MFP to do the job of your commercial machine for a whole lot less right? You say it looks the same,smells the same taste the same right? same speed and… foot print??

I will show you how you are wrong and in the end you will be paying more for the machine you just bought at staples and guarantee that the machine will fail and when it does fail,you will be inconvenienced by having to take that machine BACK to the box store or worst yet,having to go back out to Staples and buying another one,bringing it home,unloading it and setting it up once again to save what? Now your office is out of production because the salesman told you to get rid of all your office machines and to just print to one MFP. Tell me honestly,you are the owner of a company,your focus is on expanding your business,do you really want to deal with copiers and office equipment??

OK,back to the mistake you made by buying the NON commercial box store MPF,did you know that the toner yield is 1/4 of what you would get out of a commercial toner?

Did you know that you will be paying twice as much for toner?

Did you know that the consumables in the box store machines will fail much earlier?

what is the definition of consumables?

1) Drums
2) Toner
3) Fuser rollers
4) Feed rollers
5) developers

Why do you think the box stores are selling the machine for $400.00 vs a Commercial machine with the same footprint $1200.00?

Oh,did I mention that you will get 7 years out of the Commercial Box? and that every time you have a service call on the NON Commercial machine ,you will have to make a decision if it is worth it or should I just go out and get another one (more wasted time and more down time) to save what???
