If you lease office equipment or operating systems, such as copiers, printers or servers at your business, you’ve most likely had to deal with large, national companies. This usually amounts to long periods of holding on the phone only to speak with someone at an international call center.
At UCI, we created our copier leasing company so you always speak to a real live person at our local offices in Amarillo and Lubbock. UCI offers 1-5 year lease agreements and we lease a variety of office machines and equipment, including:
What Are The Benefits of Leasing Office Equipment?
Running a successful, profitable business is no easy feat. Budgeting capital and maintaining productivity levels are key. Supply costs and maintenance fees can quickly eat up your budget. Purchasing your own copier or printer can be expensive, and the maintenance of your own server, computers and software can also be extremely time-consuming for your IT department. Leasing your office equipment and operating systems may be more fiscally responsible and time efficient.
Saves Money - Office equipment, especially copiers and printers, are big expenses. For many businesses, it is more cost-effective to make low monthly payments rather than pay a large fee upfront. Additionally, the interest rate for leasing equipment could be lower than taking out a loan.
Flexible Payment Structure - Many copier leasing companies offer flexible payment methods, such as month-to-month plans. Another benefit is that you may not have to put any money down. Ask about the length and terms of your lease agreement and determine which payment schedule fits your needs best. You may be able to bundle software, support and hardware costs, too.
Better Technology - Technology is always changing. While this is great for being able to provide the best services to your customers, it also means that your equipment will eventually become obsolete. Rather than investing in office technology that will depreciate over time, you can save money over time by leasing your equipment and having access to upgrades at the end of your contract.
Tax Benefits - When you purchase a copier, printer or server, you deduct the machine’s depreciation. Leasing office machines and operating systems, on the other hand, allows you to deduct each payment because it is considered a pre-tax business expense.
When shopping for office equipment, it’s important to research all of your options. Leasing can provide you with a better return on your investment and a higher rate of efficiency. To learn more about UCI’s copier leasing services in Amarillo and Lubbock, Texas, contact our offices today.
