Of all the things you need to focus on when it comes to choosing the perfect copier, you shouldn't have to stress about whether you're buying or leasing. Instead, let us help by showing you the pros and cons of each choice!


Pros and Cons

You can never overestimate the power of having a great copier in your workflow. They're fast, efficient, powerful, and reliable--and, better yet, they open up all kinds of opportunities for your business.

Once you're sure you want an in-house copier, though, you've got one big question to ask yourself: buy or lease?

Both options have their advantages and disadvantages--and the truth is that there's no "right" answer. It all depends on your business, your future goals, and your needs.

However, it does help to compare general pros and cons--so let's take a look!


Buying Pros:

  • You save money overall when you choose to buy instead of lease.
  • You don't have to deal with any contracts or terms, and you can even count the expense as a tax deductible.


  • Buying a copier means you're responsible for it forever.
  • You'll have to pair for maintenance, repairs, and upgrades--and with new tech available every few months, you could quickly begin to feel that your machine is "outdated."


Leasing Pros:

  • Leasing is a great choice for almost every budget.
  • It's cheaper upfront, comes with a maintenance agreement so you don't pay for repairs, and allows you to upgrade to newer machines with less hassle.


  • Of course, leasing is a little more expensive in the long run, and you don't own the machine--which means you can't sell it and get your money back.
