What Does a Copier Lease Cost?

If you are looking for a copier lease, surely one of the first questions will be what it costs. We are going to cover a lot of the pricing discussion here on this article as well as help you understand some important options when it comes to leasing a copier.

Our company has thousands of copiers under contract with a lease, so we are able to answer this question as well as help you avoid some common pitfalls along the way.

Leasing is a Financial Agreement

One of the first things to understand when leasing a copier and thinking about costs, is leasing is a financial contract generally between you and a bank. Leasing is not simply renting a copier to get service. When computing leasing costs, there is a term called a lease factor which reps use to compute payments. Basisically what this means is you take the amount to finanace and then when you do there is a table which will give you a payment. The easiest way to see how this works is by using our handy lease rate calculator tool.

Once you see how this works, then you will get a lot better idea of how costs work with a copier lease. A $10000 copier is about $200 on a 5 year lease and about $300 on a 3 year lease. Now you can start looking at your budget and actually figure out what kind of copier you should be considering.

For simplicity, we would say you should expect to spend at least $60 per month for a copier lease, and depending on features, most companies will not exceed $200 per month. The more you go to a production copier, the more you will exceed the $200.

Supplies and Service

The cost of the copier is not merely the copier itself. There is also a part which is the supplies and service cost. Think of this like your gas for your car. This will matter more if you drive more using the car analogy. So, the more you print, the more this matters. If you barely print at all, this will be much less important to you.

A good average for black and white is 1.5 cents a page. For color 8 cents a page is a good average. The really cheap copiers will cost more per print and the nicer ones will be less per print. This is simply a matter of multiplying the numbers out to see what makes the most sense when added to the monthly equipment costs.
