Posted by Bob Loblaw on Tue, Mar 19, 2019

Ditch your leases and rent instead! Why? Because no commitments, no hassles, no stress! As a new business owner, or even a well-established one, it makes perfect sense to consider rentals. Leasing equipment generally makes it yours to own eventually, but you end up with a depreciated asset; and in a technological business world, it's imperative to keep your equipment updated.

Buying a brand new copier, multi-function printer, or other piece of office equipment can be a huge expense. Plus, maintenance on those same pieces of equipment can add up to costly repairs in a short period of time.
