If you’re currently close to finishing your five-year copier lease in Fort Worth and are thinking about returning the machine due to recent problems, it may not be quite that easy. Even if you’re in the last month, don’t be surprised if you get an additional 3-month invoice. If you’d like to avoid that scenario, you need to know one critical item.
It’s important to carefully read and understand the terms of your contract, because almost without exception, the lease will clearly state that the company is permitted to continue billing unless they receive a written notice of intent to return between 45 and 90 days before the expiration of the contract. In other words, you need to get a letter sent out in time to prevent an additional charge.
By failing to send the notice, you can lose as much as $1,000. Even if you try speaking with the copier company you’ll probably still have to pay, unless they’re the ones actually holding the contract. Whenever you’re signing a contract for a new copier for your Fort Worth office, be sure to read it thoroughly.
