Elementary, my dear Watson! If you have landed on this page, it’s probably because you are wondering about the benefits of buying used copiers! Or perhaps you are still hesitating with buying new equipment? Our guarantee: at the end of this article, all your doubts will be wiped away.

Buying used copiers: what’s the price?

There are many reasons to be interested in the benefits of buying used copiers. But let’s face it, the first reason is the price. Buying a used copier will be cheaper than buying a new one. While the price of a new copier can vary between € 3,500 and € 8,000 depending on manufacturer and model, a second-hand copier purchased from a wholesaler like Matmond will cost on average one fifth of the price of a new one. And if you buy in bulk, the price difference will be all the more striking. This price can vary depending on model, (whether it is a popular and/or recent model) and accessories. Above all is the remaining potential of the copier that determine its price. When we talk about potential, we are talking about the remaining life span. After all, what’s the point of investing in a second-hand copier if it can no longer print after one year?

In short, used copiers are priced according to the number of pages they have printed in their short life, the number of copies they can print per minute and their accessories.

What about the quality of used copiers?

Obviously, second-hand means used. So you need to be sure of the quality of the copiers and that they work properly. Buying from a reputable wholesaler like Matmond is a guarantee of quality. From the moment we receive them, we take great care of our copiers so that our customers can make the most out of their potential. They are cleaned, repaired and tested by our experts (some of whom have more than 10 years’ experience… that’s a lot of repaired copiers!).

It should also be noted that manufacturers regularly (every 2-3 years) release new models to grow their business. As a result, most photocopiers are replaced much sooner than they should and are put back on the shelf even though their potential is still pretty high. It is therefore possible to find relatively new models on the market!

Have you thought about ecology?

By buying used photocopiers, in addition to saving money and acquiring quality equipment, you are also doing something for the Earth! Indeed, the production of photocopiers costs our Planet a lot of resources, especially in raw materials and water. Buying second-hand means giving a second life to photocopiers and avoiding seeing their potential wasted.

So, will you buy second-hand? Or will you be tempted to buy a reconditioned copier?
