In an effort to save money many businesses simply put up with their aging office equipment. But in reality older, less efficient machines can wind up costing more in lost productivity, repairs, and energy usage.


Fortunately, there’s an easy and cost effective solution: a trade-in! Here are some commonly asked questions about the trade in process to help ease your frustration and get you one step closer towards your new office equipment:

What is the value of my current equipment?

During the initial evaluation, a number of factors will be taken into consideration to determine the value of your equipment, including:

  • Number of impressions
  • Quality of output
  • Overall condition

The types of equipment that may be eligible for a trade in are:

  • Copiers
  • Fax machines
  • Multifunction printers (MFPs)
  • Printers
  • Scanners

How will this affect my existing lease agreement?

A quick examination of your lease will reveal if there is an early termination clause—commonly included to allow for upgrades and trade ins.

What becomes of my old equipment if no one wants it?

Office equipment that is no longer desirable for resale will either be recycled, or donated to a non-profit, or charitable organization.

Do a lot of businesses trade in their old equipment?

Nearly 85 percent of copiers, scanners, printers, and fax machines are traded in for feature rich, energy saving office equipment to streamline document production, and reduce the impact on the environment.

Put an end to the frustrations associated with outdated, inefficient office equipment. Trading in your used equipment for new, is a quick and easy process with immediate benefits, including increased productivity, reduced energy usage and improved efficiency.
