Should I buy my new printer or photocopier?

It is a big and often costly step when buying any kind of new technology. Paragon Document Solutions, are here to ensure you make the decision that is right for you. By giving you objective advice about the options you have, we pride ourselves in ensuring you get what you want at a very competitive price.

Here we look at the benefits of buying VS the advantages of copier leasing.

  • Some would say…    "Buying is easier than leasing". 

Buying new equipment is easy--you make a decision about your needs, then go out and buy it!  Taking out a lease with many companies, however, often involves copious amounts of paperwork, as leasing companies often ask for detailed, updated financial information. They may also ask about how and where the equipment they lease will be used. Also, lease terms can be complicated to negotiate. And if you don't negotiate properly, you could end up paying more than you should or receiving poor terms.

  • Paragon's response

Although we are a rental and leasing company, Paragon Document Solutions are a company you can trust. We offer a flexible leasing service, allowing you to take advantage of all the benefits photocopier leasing can provide.  Years of experience ensures that we are able to offer our customers the best service possible, with the least amount of fuss!  We are a market leader in photocopier leasing and offer great deals on all aspects of leasing, hire, repair, rental and sales. Since starting in 2002, we have retained 95% of our customers, which speaks volumes about our exceptional customer service, which all our customers receive on a daily basis.  There are also tax allowances for photocopier leasing that aren't available on outright purchases!  Paragon's flexibility also allows you the option to upgrade your lease should your circumstances change at any point during the leasing period.

  • Some would say…."When you buy, you call the shots regarding maintenance". 

Equipment leases often require you to maintain equipment according to the leasing company's specifications, and that can get expensive. When you buy the equipment outright, you determine how and when you maintain it for yourself.

  • Paragon's response

When you lease equipment from us at Paragon we give you the peace of mind you need when running a business.  Our customer service plan offers;

One account manager.  One phone number.  No goose chase. Many competitors have multiple departments, confusing switchboards, answer phones and long call back times, whilst at Paragon we provide customers with a dedicated blackberry-armed, account manager who is available at any time, saving you time and money.

We give you lots of extras! At Paragon we ensure the smooth running of your business by providing extras such as toners and drums stored away on site with you, giving you the assurance you need if you run out of something or your equipment fails.  This means no hanging around for the repair men to arrive before you can return to business as normal.

Nationwide 4 hour response time.  If you should have a problem, we guarantee to have an experienced technician to you within 4 hours of your call.  So you may call the shots when you buy, but when you lease from us we take the worry of maintenance away from you and place it in the hands of the experts!

Other comments from Paragon…

Further downsides to buying rather than leasing.

  • The initial outlay for needed equipment may be too much.Your business may have to tie up credit or cough up large amounts to get the equipment it needs.  Those lines of credit and funds could be used elsewhere for marketing, advertising or other things that can help your business grow.  We offer affordable rates which free up your finances, allowing you more flexibility.
  • Eventually, you will be stuck with outdated equipment. New technology, alas, soon becomes old technology!  Businesses may need to refresh their equipment every 18 months. So you're eventually stuck with outdated equipment that you must donate, sell or recycle.


Although buying is sometimes preferential in some circumstances, the services offered by good leasing companies, such as Paragon, provide you with first class professionalism along with first class rates! 

We make customer's lives easier by offering a simple price match promise, matching any quote from our competitors. Others will often charge a leaving fee - and not pre warn you about it!  Rest assured that won't ever happen here at Paragon, where honesty and transparency is our policy!
