4 reasons why refurbished printers might benefit your business

When most businesses look for a printer, they usually think about whether buying brand new, or leasing is the best option. But now it is time to consider refurbished models. These printers will have been previously used, but should have a better life span than if you bought a 2nd hand non-refurbished printer. There are many reasons why a printer would have been refurbished and not one of these reasons should adversely affect your decision for purchasing one.

In this article, we will discuss some of the reasons why purchasing a refurbished printer might be your best option.

Business requirements – If you have a small business that does not print or copy a lot, then it makes sense to look for a printer that meets your needs. Many businesses look for brand new, top of the range printers, thinking they will have an advantage over their competitors. But sometimes this is not the case. If you buy or lease an expensive printer with many features that are not relevant to your business, you can be wasting a lot of money that could have been spent in other areas of the business. In this scenario, it may be beneficial to acquire a refurbished printer, at least until your operations expand, or until you feel the need to invest in a better printer.

Bigger businesses can also benefit from refurbished printers. Some printer providers have a wide range of refurbished printers for sale or lease, so it will be advantageous to do some research before buying or leasing if you would like to potentially save some money.

Environmental – Recently, more and more businesses are proactively working towards reducing their carbon footprint and wasteful practices. One of the ways to further improve your environmental impact would be to use a refurbished printer instead of a brand new one. Using a refurbished printer will extend the life of the printer and decrease the need for new printers to be built. However, if you see a printer that has excellent energy saving capabilities, in comparison to the refurbished one, then this may be a better choice in the long term.

Cost – This is usually the main reason why a business would look for a refurbished printer instead of a new one. Buying a printer outright can be expensive, which is why many businesses prefer to lease one instead. But if you would like to own your devices, then purchasing a refurbished printer is usually significantly cheaper. These refurbished printers will likely be sold with a warranty to protect you against any issues your printer may have.

Reliability – Some people are sceptical when it comes to buying a refurbished device. They assume that the device will be of poor condition and potentially still broken. However, this is rarely the case. When a device is refurbished, it is inspected by a professional and once fixed, it is rigorously testing to ensure that it meets their acceptable standard. Any scuffs or scratches will usually be outlined before the device is sold to make the buyer fully aware. Should the printer break again, providing that you are within warranty, it will be fixed or replaced.
