Price of Photocopiers

  • Overview


Price Of Photocopiers

Photocopiers vary in price. A basic photocopier could set a business back £1,000, whereas a top of the range light-production photocopier is upwards of £15,000! However, when looking at purchasing a new photocopier, looking solely at price isn’t always the best avenue. Instead it’s important to think about the features of the photocopier that are essential to your business and ones that you could manage without. Then you need to look at how much you print each day or month, this will determine the speed and volume the machine/s will need to cope printing. Midshire will help you find a device that meets your needs at the best price.

Price of PhotocopierWe advise that you ask yourself these questions before purchasing a new photocopier:

1. What is the speed that you need your photocopier to print at?
2. Do you need to print in colour, or would a black and white device be enough?
3. How much paper do you need to load in the printer at once?
4. Do you need to print in A3 or just A4?
5. Do you need finishing equipment (hole punching, stapling, booklet making, sorting etc.)
6. How do you want to finance the equipment, purchase or lease?
7. If leasing if for you, what lease term would be best? (3, 4 or 5 years).

Should I purchase or lease my photocopier?

Purchasing a photocopier is the least cost-effective method, with photocopier leasing being the most preferable option for many businesses.

General photocopier machine prices

As mentioned above, the price of photocopiers varies dramatically from device to device, however as a general rule of thumb:

1. A brand new desktop colour photocopier, ideal for small work groups or individuals, would cost upwardly of around £22 per month to lease

2. A brand new office A3 colour photocopier, which is the right device for medium work groups or SMEs, would cost around £49 per month on lease.

3. A brand new large light production A3 colour device, ideal for large companies or reprographics departments, would cost approximately £234 per month.

These are all rough guides, and it does depend on specifications, brands, is it new or refurbished, does it have advanced features or finishing and the length of the lease period.
