If you've recently started a new business, then you might have leased a small office to use as a base. Costs are important at this stage of your new business cycle. You're willing to work in a small space now to save money on rent.
However, you might find it hard to get all the equipment you need into your office. For example, you might want to buy a copier, but you might not have enough space for a standard model.
How can you fit a copier in a small office?
Look at Compact Models
Regular copiers don't have to take up a lot of space. The core copying component of the machine is often quite small; however, the copier needs more space to fit in attachments and parts at its sides, such as paper trays, feeds, and toner boxes.
You can buy compact copiers with a footprint that is based around the core part of the machine. These models don't extend out at the sides like regular models. They typically incorporate feeds and trays inside the main part of the machine.
This copy machine will be streamlined and narrow rather than wide. If you have some spare floor space, then a compact copier might be a viable solution.
Look at Multifunction Machines
Sometimes, you have equipment space restrictions because you need to fit multiple machines in your office. For example, you might want a scanner, a printer, and a copier. If your office is tiny, then you might struggle to get three machines in it.
You can solve this problem by buying a multifunction machine. These products print, scan, and copy. You get all the services you need in one machine; you don't need to buy individual pieces of equipment. Again, if you buy a compact model, then it won't need much space at all.
Look at Desktop Models
If you're so short on space that you can't even fit in a compact or multifunction printer/scanner/copier, then you might have to look at desktop machines. You can stand these machines on part of a desk or table.
You won't find many solo copier options here; however, many smaller multifunction machines are made to sit on a desk rather than on the floor. If you don't want to lose desk space, you can fit some models under a desk instead.
To find out more about smaller copier options, ask copier sales companies for advice.
