How re-manufactured used office copiers are taking South African market by storm

Over the past 10 years, expertly refurbished used MFP office copiers have been a growing trend among South African businesses looking to stretch their IT budgets further, while still maintaining world-class printing standards.

So, what has driven this demand? In fact, a number of factors have come together to drive the uptake of re-manufactured copier equipment adoption in southern Africa. Nearly all office equipment is sourced and imported in US dollars or euros; as such, the recent depreciation of the rand against foreign currencies has led to a marked increase in the cost of new IT equipment, including multifunction photocopiers. By purchasing refurbished used photocopier equipment, United Business Solutions clients are able to pay 15% to 25% the price of new equipment, and are available to be rented should you wish, while still receiving extremely low running costs and the peace of mind associated with a comprehensive service level agreement.

"We liken it to moving a one-ton load with a 10-ton truck, our clients receive a used Canon or Konica Minolta photocopier capable of three to four times the print workload at a fraction of the cost of a smaller, brand new machine. This allows them to not only reduce capital outlay for the unit, but also run their monthly printing at a lower cost. It's a win-win situation," according to Ryan Lumley, Sales Director at United Business Solutions. "All units come with comprehensive warranties and are placed on cost-effective service level agreements; effectively, we take care of the end-to-end printing solution and ongoing maintenance, so you can focus on your business."

Added to the economic benefit of refurbished office printers is the environmental one; in many cases, these corporate office automation fleet units have only reached 10% to 20% of their usable life, and would have ended up in scrapyards unnecessarily. This method of refurbishment allows those used copier assets with considerable lifespan still left to be re-purposed and used in a productive manner at SME businesses looking for high quality re-manufactured office copiers.
