Cost Analysis: Owning A Printer vs Leasing vs Renting

What's the most cost-efficient way to get a color laser printer or color copier for your office? Even in our digital world, this is an important question that every business needs to answer. After all, having no printer can be worse than having an expensive printer or one that requires a lot of maintenance.

Wondering what option is best for you? There are several factors to consider when making this decision, and in today’s blog post, the team at iRent Printers is outlining the difference between owning, leasing, and renting.


Owning A Printer

On the surface, it would seem that buying a new printer is the most cost-effective option. However, this isn't always the case. There are several factors to consider when making this decision, including the amount of use your printer will see and how often you'll need to replace it.


Leasing A Printer

Leasing a printer can be more expensive in the long run than buying a new printer, but it does have some advantages. For example, leasing a printer usually includes all of the necessary supplies, such as toner and paper. You also don't have to worry about repairs, since the leasing company will take care of them.


Printer Rental

Renting a printer is generally the most affordable option, but there are some things to keep in mind. First, you'll need to return the printer when you're done using it. Second, depending on the company you’re renting from, you may need to purchase your own supplies, such as toner and paper.
