Renting vs Buying a printer: Which is the best option for your business?

Need a new printer for your business?

It can be difficult to understand whether buying a printer outright or engaging in a printer rental would be more beneficial for your business. There are a few factors you need to consider such as your budget, the ongoing costs of owning a printer and how long you will need the printer for. To help take the guesswork out of this decision take a look at our advice below.



It is not always suitable for a business to buy a printer outright as this lump sum can cause great financial instability for a young business. Whereas a printer rental can be a much smarter and safer financial move as it lowers the initial costs of starting or maintaining a successful business. This is especially useful for new businesses as it allows a business to distribute their finances. The decision to rent a printer can also allow a business to start operating sooner as their start-up costs would be lower than if they bought a printer outright. When you can, it is best to buy rental, instead of buying equipment and tools outright as this will help your business maintain and control its finances. However, if your business does have the ability to buy a printer outright, then this can save your business money in the long-term, but we understand not all businesses can afford this luxury.

Printer rental also allows flexibility when you want to upgrade your printer or if you decide you need a different type of printer. This can happen if your business grows or if you decide the printer you currently have is not suitable for your office’s needs. Instead of going through the hassle of selling the printer you already have, you can return the printer rental or swap your printer for another. It really is that simple with Printcom.
