Not only do you know upfront what the service charge is, there is also no large outlay on an expensive piece of equipment. Once the initial contract has finished you can choose to move onto a new more up-to-date piece of equipment if you wish too, rather than owning one which has devalued greatly as new technology has entered the market.
Whilst most leasing providers are reputable, it is always a good idea to read the small print to ensure there will be no nasty surprises at any point during the lease agreement. One person who learnt about this the hard way was a head teacher in Manchester who thought that he had taken out a reasonably priced contract with a reliable firm. Unfortunately this was not the case as the pricing he was given was misleading, resulting in much higher costs than expected when the school received the first bill.
Whereas the head teacher thought that as per the agreement colour copies were being charged at 3.5p per sheet, in fact there were being billed at 11p each – more than three times the expected price. This was because whilst in the main document it said 3.5p per sheet, the fine print revealed this 3.5p charger was per each colour toner being used (cyan, magenta and yellow) as well as the black one which cost 0.5p per sheet. This vast difference in pricing makes it clear how important it is to understand what the charges are – if you are unsure about anything on the quote it is always best to ask upfront rather than find out the hard way later on.
