Why Buy Refurbished Laser Printers, Fusers and Maintenance Kits ?

Are you thinking of purchasing a refurbished printer ?


For some people, the term "refurbished" stirs up more concerns than confidence, for example: "Am I just buying someone's used printer ?"

Fortunately, this and other common questions about refurbished laser printers, refurbished fusers and reconditioned document scanners are easily answered.


At Sudden Impact, we stock a wide range of refurbished printers, fusers and kits. We obtain our used printing equipment from a variety of sources:

  • Customer returns and cancelled orders - Fully-functional products that leave the manufacturer and therefore can no longer be sold as new.
  • Damaged products - Products returned because of cosmetic flaws or damage during shipping or a broken part.
  • Overstocks - Items that are returned by the seller to make room for newer product lines.
  • Ex-demo - Products have been used as demonstration machines
  • End of Lease – Items that have come to the end of a customers lease agreement and are no longer required by the customer or the lease company.


Depending on the product line, most printers start to appear in the second user market about 12 months after their introduction date (i.e. once they are out of manufacturer’s warranty). A printer model that was brought to market a year ago may be considered obsolete by the manufacturer, but it could still provide a great solution to you for many years to come, at less than half the original selling price.


How is a product refurbished? First of all, each item is thoroughly tested by our own engineers, in our own workshop. Broken, worn or defective parts are replaced with NEW parts, and then tested again, cleaned and packaged for sale.


If value for money is what you want, then refurbished products offer the same high quality products at a lower cost. We include consumables, often with 75% or more life remaining. We also include 6 months warranty as standard, no matter how old the machine. The industry standard for refurbished IT equipment is 3 months, but we’re so confident in our refurbished products, we decided to double it, at no extra charge.


For some customers, the latest technology is a must so we do also supply new open box and ex demo machines. In other cases, a refurbished product is simply a better choice. For example:

  • Refurbished equipment may offer the best price/performance value for a training room.
  • Cartridge testing may be performed just as effectively using refurbished products as with new.
  •  A new and top-selling product that is out of stock may be available in the remarketed pool due to a return or cancelled order.


If you're still unsure, feel free to give us a call on 0845 370 7701 and we'll be happy to discuss any questions you may still have.
