trade_in_TDSIT.jpgOffice technology is always in the process of changing and evolving. As new functionality becomes available, office equipment that is only a few years old may already be outdated. If you’d like to lower your operating costs, improve efficiencies and reduce your carbon footprint why not consider trading in your old equipment for newer technology? 

Here's what you need to know about the trade-in process: 

How does it work? - Typically there is a quick assessment of your current equipment and a discussion as to your needs and functionality requirements. Take some time to assess your needs for today and into the future. It’s an easy process and a rewarding one!

What can I trade, and how is it valued? - The condition, quality and number of impressions on each device is considered to determine value. Many types of office devices can be traded in: copiers, fax machines, printers, scanners, and even MFPs can be considered for trade.

I have a lease. Do I need to wait until it expires? - Probably not. Most lease contracts are somewhat flexible and will allow you to exit your agreement if you are upgrading to newer technology. Check the terms and conditions of your current lease to see if there are any early lease termination clauses or fees.

Will I need to enter another lease agreement? - Not necessarily, it depends on what you are trading in.

What happens if no one wants my old equipment? - It is either refurbished, or properly recycled depending on its condition. It may also be donated to a non-profit if it is in good condition and serviceable.

Is it common to trade in old equipment? - Absolutely! More than 80% of copiers, printers, fax machines and scanners are traded for more efficient and cost effective devices to allow businesses to become more productive and sustainable. Once business owners understand how new equipment can improve ther bottom line, most question why they didn’t do it sooner!

If you’re getting frustrated with the loss of productivity and rising costs of old technology, consider the possibility of trading in and upgrading. It’s easier than you think and can translate directly to your bottom line!
