Have you ever consider purchasing pre-owned photocopiers and printers for your office? Have you taken into account the possibility of selling the used printing equipment you want to replace? If the answer to these questions is no, it is time you thought about this option which might prove truly convenient.
Recycling appliances and equipments becomes more and more popular among individuals and companies nowadays. It would be unfortunate if it didn’t, if we are to consider matters from an ecological point of view; there is no reason why the products for which great amounts of resources have been spent were not put to good use in a way or another after they are no longer of use for the first owner. This is especially the case when the machines are still functional, but simply do not meet the expectations or the needs of a current holder.
You might believe that the printing equipment in your office is outdated and that no one would be interested in buying it, but there are many cases in which companies are not looking for the latest models of photocopiers and printers. You should at least give it a shot by posting an offer online. There are web pages, such as allforprintmarket.com, that are created exactly with the purpose of encouraging the used printing equipment trade.
The idea that only out-dated machines are sold by different companies on the used printing equipment market is one of the reasons for which some persons have not yet considered this alternative. But there are numerous situations in which a company might decide to sell its fixed assets. Some of the items you can find on websites such as Allforprintmarket.com are offered for sale by firms that are facing bankruptcy, for instance.
They might have a brand new press, with the most modern feature and be forced to sell it due to financial problems. Also, when a company is bought by a new owner and, maybe, changes its profile, it might put up for sale the latest models of printers they had recently acquired but that they are no longer using. So, chances are that you are going to find what you want on this market.
Another reason for which you might hesitate to purchase used printing equipment, probably the most important one, is the fact that you expect to pay a slightly smaller sum of money for a machine that will not last for long. This is, indeed, the main argument against pre-owned items: since they might break much sooner than new products, it would be, in fact, an inconvenient investment in the long run. However, there are some things you can do in order to make sure that the deal will be worth it. First of all, you can ask for a limited warranty even for second-hand products.
If the sellers know that they are providing high-quality and well-maintained machines, they should not be reluctant in offering reassurance to the buyer. Moreover, you are entitled to demand a maintenance history record sheet and, thus, see for yourself if the machine is in a good condition or not. All in all, if you are willing to invest some time and patience to find reliable sellers, you are definitely going to find pre-owned, but very efficient printers and copy machines on the internet.
