Understanding copier shipping is a very important part of ending a copier lease. However, it is a commonly misunderstood area, and because of this people can end up paying a lot of charges that they didn’t expect. Shipping your copier doesn’t have to be hard, but you have to make sure that you follow the responsibilities that are laid out for you.
The most common misunderstanding is that your copier leasing company will take care of shipping for you. This is rarely the case. This responsibility will fall on you and it is something that you are going to want to take care of sooner rather than later.
Do some research and talk with shipping companies early on. They will be willing to work with you on prices the earlier that you call. However, you could be paying a hefty price if you wait until the last minute.
It’s also important to note that your current leasing company may be willing to eat the cost of shipping if you decide to start another lease with them. Alternatively, another leasing company may do the same if you switch to them. Talk with your leasing company to find the solution that works best for you.
Don’t wait until the end of your lease to figure out copier shipping. It will always be best for you to get it figured out early on.
