7. As new contracts

If a machine has been refurbished correctly then there should be no problem with getting an as new contract.  All contracts should be the same as if you have a new machine.  If there is a problem with getting this kind of contract then there may be a problem with the refurbishment process.

8. Lease before buying

An option that may be open is to lease the used copier before you buy it.  This is a great way to see the condition of the copier and if it is worth the money.  You will also be able to see if the copier will suit your needs.

9. Look at the cover

While people say not to judge a book by its cover a copier is another thing all together.  If the casing of the copier is damaged and has large creaks in it then you should look at not buying it.  Additionally buttons that are worn or missing are a good indication of the life expectancy of the copier.

10. New features

Should you buy a used copier at all?  New models will have additional features and they will also be more eco friendly.  If you buy an older copier then you will not have the same features.  Additionally you may find that you use more resources.

There are a number of things to look at when buying second hand copiers.  It is important to know the process used to fix the copier.  Service contracts should be as new and the same as new copiers or there may be something wrong.
