It depends for which purpose the printer is used. Printers and multi-function devices can be classified as either consumer-grade or business-grade. Consumer-grade printers are generally sold in retail outlets, such as Officeworks and various online sites. Mostly designed for home use, pricing can range from as low as $60 to around $1,000. These types of printers are relatively cheap to buy but tend to be more expensive to run based on a cost per page. They may also not be as reliable as business-grade printers.
The previous answer above provides a basic overview. If you need formal quotes and are looking to make a purchase fairly soon, we suggest requesting quotes via our quote request service.
Our service was established to assist you to get up to 3 formal quotes from suppliers of business copiers, printers, and multifunction devices. These devices generally come in multiple configurations and with optional accessories to provide additional functionality. Suppliers may want to introduce themselves and discuss these prior to quoting, in order to provide an accurate and relevant quote. Therefore we suggest you should anticipate a phone call from them. It may also give you an opportunity to ask them some more questions.
Absolutely not! Just when you approach any supplier directly to get a quote, the decision to purchase or not is completely up to you. We just help you get quotes easily.
Our suppliers are keen to earn your business and will respond very quickly. Usually within hours, or at least within the same day depending on the time of your request. If you use our quote request service on a weekend, please allow until Monday to receive a response.
Our aim is to get up 3 suppliers to respond with quotes. If you are based in a regional area it may be less depending on how many suppliers service your area.
No. At this stage, we do not buy used copiers or printers. However, most suppliers will do a trade-in of your old printer if you are looking to buy a new one.
