Copier leases are long contracts that will last you for years. Years go by and a lot of people never consider that they have responsibilities to worry about when the lease comes to and end. If you don’t pay attention then you could end up paying a lot more money than you should for easy things. Ending a copier lease does not have to be hard as long as you know what you are doing.
Ending a copier lease essentially has three main parts that you need to pay attention to. If you make sure that all three of these areas are taken care of then you shouldn’t have too much of a problem down the road.
- Automatic Rollover. Check for this in your lease. If this is in your lease then your company will be able to continue your lease unless you specifically cancel it. Check for this early and mark the date on your calendar. You don’t want to end up with extra months that you had not planned for.
- Copier Shipping. Don’t assume that your leasing company is going to pick up your copier for you. Most of the time this is left up to the person who started the lease. Plan your shipment early to save yourself hundreds.
- Packing your copier. This is probably the easiest of the three things to do, which is why a lot of people forget about the rules. Check your lease and see if there are any specific rules about packing your copier. This is usually something as easy as putting toner cartridges in their own plastic bags to avoid stains.
If you pay attention to these three areas then ending your copier lease should be easy. Figure out your responsibilities early and you won’t have problems later on.
