In the era of a "down economy" many companies are searching every avenue to save money. Some companies have tried to go the route of used equipment. Buying from Craigslist, Ebay, Lease returns and other used equipment sources. does it save money? or Is it as costly or more costly as new?Over the years I have seen used equipment purchased in many environments. Frankly the results have been mixed. Sometimes, companies have found a great fit that was a great savings for them. More often, I have found companies disappointed. The savings have either not been what they expected and some times a direct loss.Over the years one of the greatest mistakes I have seen with the purchase of used equipment is improper shipping. A number of years back, one customer called for help with a folder inserter they had bought from a few states away. The seller had boxed the 70+ pound machine in a heavy duty box with Styrofoam popcorn. Now, popcorn is an OK packing material for light weight product. Unfortunately, it is not adequate for what is in essence a 70 lb brick. Needless to the machine did not arrive in an operational mode. The frame was bent and need serious repair and replacement parts before the machine would work. Another customer called us for help with an address printer. The printer was so bent it could not be repaired. A few years back, I thought I had found a "DEAL" at a lease return house that I could resell at a great profit. Unfortunately, the machine had an electrical glitch that would have cost $1,000's to repair (more than the machine was worth).Two years ago I was working with a time share resale company to acquire an addressing machine. They decided instead to purchase a machine from eBay. The machine worked but not so well. After using that machine for six months and then trying another used machine, they finally purchased a new machine. Shortly after delivering and installing the machine I received a text from one of the principals, "Homer, I'm in love." was the response. They were able to increase their productivity from 4,000 to 6,000 pieces per hour to nearly 20,000 pieces per hour (oh, and achieve a better approval rate from the United States Postal Service (i.e. less postage $$)).In another setting, a company leased a used copier because they felt they would save dollars because it was a used copier.  In the end, they are spending more money for the used copier and are receiving less utility.  The used copier, was slower, higher supply costs and not the same quality of print they would have received with a new unit.So the moral of the story, Used equipment might save you money. But, if your going to purchase used equipment make certain you have a company that can service your equipment. It is not IF you will need service but how often you will need it. It may look inexpensive at the outset but it may just be cheap. Unfortunately cheap, frequently means more expensive.Also, don't be afraid to look at new equipment. Many manufacturers are putting together promos and lease packages that make New Equipment actually less expensive. They are motivated to move the gear out of their showrooms and warehouses. So ASK. Make sure you have "right-sized" your equipment. With all of the changes in our world, you may not need as large of a machine as you once did. Then again, maybe you do. Take a look, either way, having the right equipment will be budget saving in the end.Look for new equipment that fits your budget. Equipment that you know the history of, Equipment with a warranty, Equipment that has someone who will support you in accomplishing your mission with the equipment. Copy Machine Repair

Often overlooked is the ability of the copier and the expertise of the dealer’s support staff to integrate into your existing software. I’m not talking about “scan to email” and the basic functionality that all copiers have today. I’m referring more to, for example, native integration into your electronic document management system and other types of back end business systems. Even if you don’t have the need now or don’t even have those types of software systems, will you in the future? Chances are you will be entering into a 3 to 5 year lease commitment for your copier. You need to consider possible future needs.

With 2008 proving a testing time for all business - especially small business - a different perspective now applies to expenditure on new office equipment.The All-In-One could well become the best option for any small business contemplating the purchase of a copier, fax, printer or scanner for their office. Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, Canon, Samsung, Fuji-Xerox and Brother all have an offering of some sort that could solve many of the dilemmas confronting the small business owner or manager in making this decision.The problem now is that the traditional photocopier seller will confront a prospective client with many reasons why committing to a five year contract - the magic of being given a "FREE" copier sounds fantastic until you realize that you have signed up for a minimum number of pages printed or copied each month - whether you actually use them or not - for the duration of the contract.What this means is that you may well be paying a premium for the device AND you actually have to pay for the privilege of having manufacturer's warranty - isn't that a given in any purchase of a new product - a car, a washing machine or a television?Of course it is but not in the world of photocopier contracts!!The All-In-One - sometimes called a multifunction device or centre - invariably comes with standard warranty of some sort for no extra charge from the manufacturers mentioned above. You do not have to buy it - it comes as part of the purchase price - and it can be extended or upgraded.The quality of the components of the All-In-One of 2008 is exceptional and removes the common fear that by purchasing a bundled product you are actually getting inferior components in that bundle - as it used to be in purchasing hi-fi equipment.Not so any more.With a little bit of homework or a consultation with a reseller of office equipment who actually cares about his client, you can be sure that the printer, fax and scanner which make up an All-In-One are in actual fact quality components in their own right and can be relied upon to produce quality results.This is most important with the evolution of office equipment to a level in an office where a minimum of paper is retained and archived, is reliant upon quality scanning so that documents can be archived on computer hard drives - hard drives are less expensive than renting floor space for paper storage.The common practice of today is that of moving documents - letters, invoices, statements and payments - electronically so that the documents may never have to be printed or, after being printed and used for office procedures, they can be shredded as there is always a copy stored on a computer somewhere. So long as backup procedures are strictly enforced this data is probably safer than the actual hard copy of the past.In summary, rather than buying a multitude of various devices it may be possible for groups of users to share All-In-One or Multifunction devices because most of the quality products come ready to be connected to a network.You can actually save money with a minimal amount of research and some professional advice. For all your All in One Printer needs Focus Office Supplies Has the Solution for you.

Compatible means that the cartridge will work with the specified equipment even though it is not made by the manufacturer of the equipment in question. In most cases this situation exists when the manufacturer of the original equipment does not have a patent on the design of the supplies or that patent expired. As with generic prescriptions, this allows manufacturers of generic supplies to make brand new compatible or generic cartridges. Examples of these are many ribbons for dot matrix printers, many Epson ink cartridges as well as many Canon ink cartridges. In our highly competitive and ever changing market, there are companies that will label remanufactured cartridges as compatible. It is hard to tell in all cases, but as a guide, here is a list of products where you can expect compatible or generic supplies to be available: copier toner, printer toner and Most HP, Lexmark, Canon, and Xerox laser toner cartridges can be remanufactured.
