When Should You Buy a New Printer?

Every office requires a reliable printer for those moments when only hardcopies of documents will do. But as we all become more digital, it can be easy to forget about your printer, until you need to print an important document. So you should keep an eye on your printer to make sure that it’s ready to use, whenever you need it.

Here at Trade Your Toner, we buy all sorts of second-hand printers and accessories. When you’re ready to buy a new printer, you know just what to do with your existing one and the toner cartridges that come with it. We’ll offer you a great price for your old printer and the cartridges that come with it, money that you can put towards getting a new printer or cartridges for them. 

If you’re not sure whether or not you need a new printer, then here are a few things for you to look for if you’re considering buying a new printer.

  • Printer isn’t Meeting your Needs

  • Your printer is there to meet the needs of your office and if you’ve noticed that you’re no longer capable of doing what you need it to, then it’s probably time to get a new one. A printer not meeting your needs can happen for several reasons, not just because your printer isn’t functioning. For example, if your business has grown and you suddenly need to print more, then you’ll need a printer with a higher paper capacity. This doesn't mean that your printer is broken, but it does mean that it is no longer fit for purpose. Instead of just throwing it away, you can sell it to our team and put that money towards a new high-capacity printer.

  • Generating Poor Results

  • No one enjoys working with a sub-standard printer, it’s frustrating and usually happens when you’re in a hurry. Whether you’re running late for a meeting with a client or just eager to print a document, your printer is bound to be running slowly or causing all sorts of smudges. Of course, there will always be times when your printer will play up, but this shouldn’t be a common theme in your office. If your printer is turning out documents that are smudged or faded or generally not up to scratch, then you’ll want to find a new one as quickly as possible. 

  • An Old Model

  • Sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of just how old your printer might be until it starts to stop functioning. Most technology should be updated over time, and printing technology has developed a lot over the last decade or so. Even if your printer is working well enough, you’ll find that a new one might just make your work a lot easier. Modern printers can print up to 24 pages per minute, which can speed up your workday; small revolutions that can make all the difference.

    If you’re planning on purchasing a new printer, then you’ll want to get rid of your old printer in a way that is convenient for you and good for the environment. We can make the entire process of removing your old printer as smooth and easy as possible. If you’ve got any questions, feel free to give us a call on 01223 756442.
