After picking out your new office equipment, you will also have the option of signing a copy machine repair contract. This service level agreement is there to ensure that your printers, copiers and fax machines run at an optimal level all the time.

1)     Copy Machine Repairs Cost Less

Although there is a yearly cost, a copy machine repair agreement will save you money in the long run. The contract locks in a fixed rate that controls maintenance costs over the life of the agreement.

Then, you are covered when just about anything goes wrong with your copy machine. Even if you have one too many paper jams in your office, it won’t raise your yearly repair costs.

Copy machine service agreements may also include preventative maintenance, which could save you money by making your equipment last longer.

2)     Repair Contracts Reduce Downtime

Whether the equipment is for a government agency, a corporate office or an educational institution, a copy machine repair contract is a solid investment.

It will reduce (or maybe even prevent) downtime as the result of broken equipment. With regularly-scheduled maintenance, your printers, copiers and fax machines will always be running in tip-top shape.

You will no longer have to worry about being unprepared for a big meeting because of a copier malfunction. And, if something ever does go wrong, a maintenance technician is just a call away.

3)     No Big, Unexpected Bills

A major concern of customers who buy or lease office machines is the possibility of getting hit with big bills for broken equipment. If you sign up for a copy machine repair contract, there will be no surprises in your invoices.

Your service level agreement will cover most types of equipment services. Instead of paying individually for each appointment, your costs will be spread out in regular installments.

What a Service Contract Typically Covers

A repair contract for your office machines typically covers regular maintenance appointments, minor problems with equipment and replacing consumable items, such as ink and toner. This service level agreement lets you focus on making sure your business runs smoothly, rather than worrying about maintaining your office copy machines.
