Tips on Selling your Copier


Know what you have


You should be familiar with your copier’s capabilities and features before attempting to sell it. In this approach, the features and benefits of the copier can be emphasised to prospective buyers, thereby demonstrating its true value. Be sure to clean your copier thoroughly before listing it for sale.

Also, you’ll be in a better position to negotiate a fair price. A clean used copier is more likely to sell quickly. Clean up the paper tray and the area around the buttons. The glass plate and other high-traffic areas should also be cleaned.

Make a list of the papers and extras you still have from your previous copier. Everything from unused ink and toner to user guides, warranties, and service records should be kept. Having everything prepared in advance can speed up the procedure.

Advertise your copier


Find reputable dealers by searching the local product listings for office supply firms and office equipment brokers. It is suggested that you deal with suppliers who have established ties with major copy machine producers like Xerox and Canon. Besides having more experience with your specific model of copier, a small business is in a better position to provide you a competitive price because of lower operating costs.

Copiers Africa has been in business for over 20 years. The company first began offering a variety of brand names in copiers to its clientele in 2009. Every manufacturer caters to a specific demographic that it has identified as its ideal customer, and produces copiers that are suitable for a variety of working conditions.

Use local advertising and classified sites to promote your copier. The vast majority of these sites provide free ad posting and the ability to reach local customers. Find out whether there are classifieds sites just for your area. When you place your used photocopier or printer up for sale in your area, you’ll likely attract the attention of local shoppers. A local copier dealer might even frequent the site. To increase the likelihood that potential purchasers will find the listing useful, it should be posted in the appropriate category.

Use eBay, Amazon, Bonanza, and Craigslist to sell your printer. Use Facebook buy-and-sell groups to sell your printer locally. These groups can get crowded, but you will get exposure for your product.

Make sure to specify the make, model, and shipping options for your equipment in the ad. Include details like your metre number, service history, location, additional parts, and usage statistics if you have them. Add visuals if possible. Including an image in your ad will make it more noticeable and enticing to potential buyers.

It’s possible that after your listings go live, you’ll hear from interested parties as diverse as print shop owners, dealers, distributors, and corporate procurement departments. It’s a good idea to compare several offers.

You can recoup at least some of your initial investment by selling your broken or obsolete printers to recycling centres or repair shops. Depending on your location, you may need to put in some effort to track down these locations and then make a phone call to confirm that they will buy your printer brand and model.


How much is your copier worth?


Used photocopiers can be purchased for a reasonable price due to their residual value. The process of selling your used photocopier shouldn’t be complicated. If you give a reputable dealer as much information as possible about your used copy machine, they can give you an accurate estimate of its value.


Prepare the printer for the buyer


You must remove the ink cartridges and toner from the copier with care so as not to damage the ink cartridge docks. Depending on the ink cartridge or toner, you can reuse it in another copier sell it, recycle it, or throw it away.

Before throwing away a copier, it’s crucial to remove any memory expansions. Remove all non-copier storage to protect your data.

The default settings should be restored. Consult the manual, to find the options for resetting it to factory defaults.

Don’t forget to unplug everything! Similar to ink cartridges, wires have multiple lifecycle options. Keep the copier’s power cord and USB cable in a box next to the copier itself if you intend to sell it.
