How To Choose A Second Hand Printer that Holds it’s Value

Posted On 08/08/2022

Used printers and photocopiers can be a great economical option for your business

A reliable, modern, technologically nimble multifunctional printer is one of the most undervalued pieces of equipment in a growing business. Whether you’re a start-up, medium or established business, choosing a second-hand printer or photocopier can help you save up to 50 per cent of the cost of a brand new model.

When considering a second-hand multifunctional printer, it’s important to choose a refurbished model that will hold long-term value for your business.

Copysonic has been repairing and restoring printers and photocopiers for over 25 years. As Melbourne’s leading printer solution and trusted technician business, we’ve put together a few key considerations when looking for a multifunctional printer that will hold its value over the years.

We’re proud to offer some of the most customisable payment plans for your business, so should you have any outstanding questions around your office’s needs, budget, and multifunctional printer options, please get in touch.

Technical capabilities

Choosing a printing or photocopying solution which addresses your business needs from a technical perspective will ensure the long-term value of a second-hand purchase. Considerations around your multifunctional printer should include wireless network connectivity, stapling, double-sided scanning and economic print settings.

Copysonic chooses brands that are known in the industry for their reliability. We maintain and service the same models that we sell, so you can rest assured that any refurbished second-hand models that you purchase are from the leading brands in the photocopying and printing industry.

Device compatibilities

Prints per minute, running costs, software updates and smart connectivity may not sound like the most crucial aspects of your printer decision, but if you’re planning on using your model to service the business long-term, they can vary widely from brand to brand.

Brands such as Toshiba are more suitable for small to medium business, which economically performs well in the 20-60 pages per minute category. On the other hand, Canon multifunctional printers can perform up to 100 prints per minute, which make them more suitable for large corporate setups.

We recommend that you get in touch with one of our highly experienced staff members and technicians. We would love to provide you with a tailored, second-hand solution that meets your business needs.

Brand reputation

Copysonic only works with photocopier brands that are well-known and have established reputations for reliability. With over 25 years in the industry, you can rest assured that the range only includes the very best new and restored multifunctional printers.

All second-hand multifunction printers are refurbished in house, with Copysonic’s own repair technicians. It’s why we can guarantee that every model is tried, tested, and reliable enough to suit your modern office needs—just like a brand new model.

We consistently look to add the latest office printers to our range, produced from the likes of Toshiba, OKI and Canon.


As photocopier and printer experts, we’re more than happy to provide our recommendations on models that are tailored to you and your office needs. Furthermore, ongoing care, repairs and maintenance are covered by your Copysonic service agreements.

Should you want or need to look for outside opinions, we recommend calling up each printer brand directly.
