If you are buying a colour copier, there are a number of price options you need to consider.
Most copiers are sold with a service contract which is geared to “price per copy” If you are printing brochures and price lists with illustrations on them this could be a benefit if the copy cost is low but if you are mainly using it for letters or invoices or documents with very little print you could be well out of pocket.
To give you some idea, a Ricoh or Canon copier has a copy toner/cost of less than one pence per copy when printing standard documents but if you are mainly printing brochures the cost would be very much higher. To most users it would be a mixed bag but do consider the mix.
Ask what the service contract includes beyond your manufacturers guarantee. Also ask how long the seller would be prepared to service the copier, and would there be a more than inflationary price increase. You also need to know what would be the scenario after the service contract is ended.
