When moving office copiers or printers, you have three methods of achieving a move: DIY, general professional movers and a specialized office equipment mover. A lot of people have chosen the DIY method because, upfront, it costs the least. However, it is also the one that costs the most in the long run if you damage the equipment, costs can range anywhere from $300 to unreasonable costs of repair. What are some of the common damages that occur from mishaps? The most common damage that occurs is bent frames, toner spills and broken plastic parts.
When you have a bent frame on your copier, It will never be the same, and the cost to make it work will be higher than the actual copier moving fee.
A general professional mover is only slightly better than the DIY method because they are experienced at moving, but they have no specialization with moving copiers. For that reason, they may not strap the copier down in the right place when they need to, and this could cause damage to a copier. Moving a copier will be different from moving a dresser or couch because copiers have internal parts that need to be strapped down in the right way. The general professional moving philosophy of, “Tight is right,” may work with moving less fragile items, but it does not work when moving copiers. Tying a copier down too tightly can bend the frame and cause misalignment. This is why you want a specialized equipment mover for the job, it will save you time, money and headaches.
