To fully understand your lease you need to know what your responsibilities are from the beginning until the very end. Many people only take care to figure out what they need to do when the copier is being used in their office. The mistake is to not figure out what you need to take care of when your lease is ending. Ending a copier lease is not complicated, but there are a few things that you should watch out first.
The first thing you are going to want to note is whether or not you have automatic rollover in your lease. Automatic rollover gives your leasing company the ability to continue your lease unless you specifically cancel before a certain date. This can make your lease go on for long than you wanted or budgeted for.
Next, you are going to want to figure out who is shipping your copier. This is often overlooked because people assume that their leasing company will take care of that. This is usually not the case. Look into your lease and figure out who needs to get shipping taken care of before the end of your lease. You can look for good deals before you are pressed to make a decision.
Finally, look at any packing instructions that you have to follow. An example could be packing toner differently or protecting fragile parts. Follow these rules or you could end up with fines.
Ending a copier lease correctly is easy and can save you a lot of money. Do the responsible thing and figure out what you need to take care of early. If you understand your lease then nothing will be a surprise.
