Thinking about leasing office equipment? Not so fast. There are a few things you'll need to know before you get started--that way, you end up with the best deal (and the best equipment for your needs). Here's your guide to leasing office equipment!
If you've decided that leasing is the best way for your business to get its hands on some powerful, effective machines, congratulations--you've made an excellent choice. Leasing office equipment can be a fast, simple, stress-free, and budget-friendly way to outfit your fleet with the latest and greatest.
However, before you sign anything, it's important to know what to look for--and what to stay away from. Let's take a look at a few questions to ask before leasing!
#1: "What are the terms?"
Understanding office equipment leasing terms can be a lot of work. Luckily, you don't have to dive in alone; instead, have the company talk you through every detail, from the length of the lease to your responsibilities in terms of things like payments and equipment return.
#2: "What services are offered?"
A good leasing company doesn't just point out a printer and send you on your way. They should offer repair, maintenance, setup, and troubleshooting options--not to mention a warranty on your office equipment--and they should be open about the cost of these things upfront.
#3: "Who are you?"
This question can be approached from many angles, but the answer you'll most want to hear is "your future partner." A company who spends the whole time talking about themselves may not have the skills necessary to evaluate your needs and provide the best options for your unique workflow--so don't be afraid to keep your standards high.
Leasing office equipment doesn't have to be complicated--as long as you come prepared, that is! Your most important task is to ask questions before choosing a leasing company, analyzing details like offered services and term flexibility. Once you've found the right partner, you're one step closer to having that perfect fleet.
