When to Fix Your Copier vs. When to Buy New


Businesses spend a ton of money on office equipment because it’s a good investment – it can last a long time, products look professional, and your office is efficient and productive because of it.

However, when you invest in a major piece of equipment, you want to make sure that it’s working at the highest level at all times. If your copier is going downhill a bit, it’s time to evaluate if you can keep fixing it or if it’s time to throw in the towel and invest in a copier upgrade.

Copier Considerations

A few copier considerations will start the process.

  1. How old – really – is the copier?
  2. Is it being used as much or more than it is intended to be used?
  3. Is it efficiently meeting the needs of your business, or are there new, updated features that would make your operations run better?

These questions are early considerations for how to think about your copier and how it’s serving you. Because that’s precisely the thing – it should be serving you, not taking a ton of time and money to keep it barely limping along.

Repair or Reinvest?

The big question, and here’s how to answer it: are you putting more into your copier than you are getting out of it?

If you and employees are frustrated, and it’s a major cost that doesn’t seem ever to work well, it’s probably time to evaluate options for a new investment machine.
