Copier leases are expensive contracts that can last for years. They are also essential for the success of your business. For this reason we like to think of copier leases as investments for your business, and as such, we believe that you should be doing whatever you can to protect your investment. Many people do not do what they need to in order to protect themselves. Luckily, it’s easy to protect yourself with preventative maintenance.
When you sign a copier lease there is a good chance that you were asked if you wanted a preventative maintenance contract. Many people say no to this because they perceive it as a way for the business to take even more money from them. However, we believe that these agreements are actually some of the smartest ones to sign up for.
Preventative maintenance can save you from experiencing really big problems down the road. For example, many copiers have a lot of small moving parts that affect a number of other things in your office machine. If one of these small pieces breaks then it can have a cascading effect to everything else in your machine. You are likely to not even notice that this small piece is broken before everything starts to fall apart. This is when having a preventative maintenance contract is especially helpful.
Having a professional look at your machine can help you spot those problems before they become serious. Protecting yourself with preventative maintenance is one of the smartest moves you can make when signing a long term copier contract.
