Reaching the end of your copier lease can be very exciting. It means your business is still doing well, you did your part to keep your lease, and it’s time for a new machine. While this seems like it should be the easiest part of your lease, it can actually be a place where people get zinged on money. At NYC Copier we hate to see people get taken advantage of, so we want to help you know what to do when your lease ends.
There are a few things you need to make sure you note about the end of your lease. The most important thing you need to understand is whether you have automatic rollover or not. Automatic rollover is a sneaky way that some leasing companies use to get you to stick with them for longer.
If you have automatic rollover in your lease it means that unless your specifically opt-out of your lease, then it will continue. Before your final months come up, you could find yourself stuck with an additional three months or more of your lease.
Make sure you talk with your leasing company and do your part to make sure your lease doesn’t continue unless you want it to.
You also want to check to see if there are any specifics regarding returning your copier. Most companies make you package things like toner and paper trays separately. If you don’t follow these rules then you could be fined.
You also need to check on who is physically retuning your copier. Don’t just assume your leasing company is doing it. They will try and use the price to leverage you into another lease.
Stop working with the scammers and work with the experts instead. Call us up at NYC Copier and we can make sure you are getting the most for your money.
