How Are Those Lease Returns Working for You?

A copier lease return is a special phrase in our industry which suggests the copier is being shipped back to the leasing company, assumingly to be upgraded to a newer better model. Have you ever wondered the costs associated with a copier lease return?

There’s the finance portion of the equation which can be calculated as a bulk interest payment if returning the equipment early. There’s also the added property tax for the year of the return as well as an overflow of return shipping charges. Sometimes these charges are hidden in the next lease you signed and just financed over a longer term we call “water in the deal”. The fact of the matter is there are fees and charges which are difficult to escape so the industry has unique ways to hide them.

Sometimes a copier lease makes sense, even given the fees associated, but other times it may make more financial sense to just purchase the equipment and pair it with a Best Performance Maintenance Plan which will take care of the machine as long as you own it.
