Note:- The more accurate you are (just opting for 500 a month, is the most expensive option) with your estimation, then the cheaper your running costs will be.

Printer Maintenance agreements

You can opt for a cost per copy maintenance agreement. As the name implies you pay a cost per copy for example -

Black print is charged at 0.3p per A4 page

Colour print is charged at 2.7p per A4 page

With a cost per copy agreement DOS supply all labour, spare parts and consumable (excluding toner) free of charge.

We charge for toner as we feel this is the best way solution for both parties (see cautionary note below) toners are rated for 10,000 prints at 5% resolution, if you only use colour for a small letterhead you may get 20,000 prints out of a toner, but if you choose to print full page colour it will be considerably less. These values are based on colour prints (some manufacturers charge by the development, a development is a cyan, magenta or yellow scan. To print brown your meter will increase by three clicks as you need all three colours to make brown).

Caution - We are seeing and hearing of a lot of instances of people purchasing equipment on what appears to be very cheap maintenance agreements which include toner, the supplier states that toners will produce 40,000 images. After several months the clients receive a letter informing them that they are only achieving 10,000 copies per toner, the maintainers then increases the service charges by up to 400%, these are legally binding agreements and the client has no choice but pay the increased charges for the remaining four and half year duration of the agreement
