Maintaining a Discontinued Copier

Imagine that you have a copier that works great and that you like for the price. You have had no problems with the copier and see no need to upgrade. But then, you get a call from your copier leasing company saying that your copier was discontinued. They offer you a chance to upgrade to something newer, for a slight increase in price. What do you do?

This is a situation that happens in the world of copier leases. Copier manufacturers are always creating new machines that they want to get into offices around the country. They incentive leasing companies to try and get their new machines into market. However, you don’t have to upgrade just because your copier was discontinued.

Your leasing agent may tell you that it’s going to be difficult to get parts, but there is something they aren’t telling you. When copier companies discontinue a copier they are legally obligated to keep parts available for 5 years. This means that you copier should still be easy to maintain for years to come.

Just remember to ask your leasing company when the copier was discontinued. If you can finish your lease and still get parts for your copier then you don’t have to upgrade. But if you will have your copier past the 5 year mark then it may be difficult to keep it running if something happens.
