Hi all,
looking to refer one of my customers who are looking to lease a copier.
Trying to find one that is not going to try and poach my IT services business from my own client though - do I have any options anymore? :)

Appreciate any feedback.

Cheers

Hearing good things about Toshiba. Have a customer getting quotes at the moment and an associate suggested I point them towards Toshiba. Most other players seemed to have gotchas of one form or another, including the afore mentioned poaching.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Any reason the PM content can't be posted in the thread? If it's something that could help out the rest of us in the same position, it would be appreciated.

Cheers

Sorry I meant to quote your original reply in my last - I meant that the Toshiba option is what I was looking at. 
Septic got his reply in just before mine though! 
Apparently Konica Minolta are a company that prefers to partner with IT MSP's rather than compete with them, so provide a good option too.

Copier companies are awash with ex-lease copiers including copiers retrieved from companies that have gone under.  Don't be afraid to ask for used copier pricing.  You'll pay about the same printing price but the monthly rental is normally notably cheaper.  It would come with the same service contract (i.e. if it's broken they come out and fix it pronto as a part of the agreement).  Easier to negotiate a 2 or 3 year agreement on a used copier and then upgrade to a newer used copier after that 2 or 3 years where with a new one they will often aim for a 5 year agreement.

I'm not keen on Kyocera due to too many driver issues in my experience.

Ricoh do some nice gear, and can be pretty negotiable on prices too.

Yep, which is a shame, because I actually quite like their kit. Toshiba and KM are decent options though, so for now we are covered. :)

Canon is another option, not sure if they push IT services or not. We use KM and are very happy with them.
