When you hear the word “refurbished” paired with the tag “for sale,” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? You’re likely thinking “old and used,” but that is not the case. While refurbished items may sound less than desirable when compared to brand new, remember there are professional refurbishing companies that invest the time to bring gently used items back to life—like re-upholstering a solid wood frame sofa or reworking a popular brand laptop to power up again. It has been used, but fixed up, thoroughly inspected and tested prior to sale. In this post, we will be referring to specific pieces of office equipment.
With that in mind, let’s look at some benefits of buying refurbished commercial printers and copiers in Phoenix, AZ:
- Budget friendly: The top reason for choosing refurbished or reconditioned over new is cost. And who doesn’t want to save money? This is especially great for small business owners just starting out who may be on a super-tight budget, or big corporations looking to do their part to reduce material waste in their community. However, to avoid ending up with a poorly refurbished copier, make sure you do business with a reputable restoration shop.
- A better guarantee that it works: We all know someone who refuses to buy the next new cell phone the week it’s released, because they want to know that it works and doesn’t have software problems before they spend the money on it. Well, when it comes to refurbished commercial printers and copiers, these types of equipment have been previously used, and looked over and tested by professionals to ensure the machines’ ability to function at the highest level. New is nice, but even brand new copiers and printers are not completely immune to detects and malfunction.
- Free of defects: Speaking of defects, if a certified copier reconditioning company deems a device useable, then as many defects as possible have been fixed before the product is sold. Defects include cosmetic damage (dents, dings and scratches) and minute mechanical or electronic component issues, all of which are taken care of. So, investing in refurbished electronics is different from buying used in that devices have been tested and fixed up by a professional shop. Used often means “as-is.”
- Less landfill waste: Whether your company is going green or you believe in using a machine until it’s completely done for, look no further than refurbished office equipment for your next purchase. The truth is, all the electronic waste that gets tossed out with the trash will wind up in a landfill—a landfill that is already overcrowded with a mix of garbage and still useable things. And since electronic components are made of plastic, metal and other non-biodegradable materials, they will not break down like organic matter. So why not give a previously owned copier a second chance?
