It can help a lit to have a friend on your side when looking for a fair copier lease. At Fresno Copier we believe in being that friend you need to get the best deal available. We want to help you understand what you need to in order to get the best lease available. One of the best ways to ensure you keep costs low is to make sure you have the best lease rate available.
Lease rates for copiers are not chosen gradually, but are instead worked on a step by step scale. What I mean to say is that there are certain price points which, when surpassed, grant breaks on lease rates. This is to help the company make bigger sales, and help you keep rates low when dealing in the large numbers.
For example, let’s say you wanted a small office machine for $3001 on a 48-month lease. The bank would decide that you have Fair Market Lease rate of $74 per month.
Alternatively, if you wanted the same machine but at a price of $2999, then your lease rate would actually rise to $91.
That’s a difference of $17 per month, which will cost you over $800 extra over the course of the 48 month lease.
So in this scenario the lease rate break point is over $3000. This means that you will have a better lease if you cross that threshold. It doesn’t matter that your $2999 is only $2 from crossing over the threshold. You will not get the price break unless you cross the $3000 mark.
If you know where your lease break points are then you can negotiate to a better rate. It can be worth it to pay for that one optional feature to get save money over the course of your lease.
