How long should copier rental contracts be?
The length of a copier rental obviously depends on the needs of the business.
If the needs are occasional, a short-term rental is more than sufficient. For daily and regular use, it is advisable to opt for a long-term rental contract. It is generally recommended not to take out a contract exceeding four years. Beyond that, it is better to start off on a new contract with new prices than to be bound by a rental contract which no longer meets the needs of the business and can hardly be renegotiated.
It is also possible to opt for leasing, a rental formula at the end of which the lessee can buy back the equipment at the price fixed in the contract. For more information read our article about purchase, lease-option rental and leasing of multifunction copiers.
