Scanner rental hints and tips to find the machine that meets your needs

Today’s scanners are incredibly powerful, allowing you to make rapid copies of a wide range of document types (or even 3D items!). However, if you only need the technology over a short time period – such as an event or a project – it might not be cost-efficient to buy your own. In these cases, scanner hire is the way to go. Scanner rental gives you access to state of the art technology at a fraction of the price of buying brand new equipment.

If you need to rent a scanner, our guide will show you where to start.

Scanner rental: key considerations

If your organisation needs to rent a scanner, the first consideration is to think about the kind of item you need to scan:

  • Documents or Barcodes?

Do you need to print out your copies? Explore our printers too.

If seeking a document scanner, consider:

Size of paper

How big are the documents you intend to scan? Most desktop and portable scanners are A4 compatible, although some scanners allow you to make copies of A3 documents too.

Portability

How portable does the scanner need to be? If you will be scanning ID or other customer information at events, you may need a scanner which can be moved around easily and sit on a desktop. On the other hand, if it just needs to sit in the corner of your office, a larger, heavier model will be fine.

Do you need an integrated scanner?

Integrated scanners incorporate other technology, such as printers and photocopiers, into the machine as well, providing you more expanded functionality.

Scanning resolution

Depending on the scanner, they can scan items at different resolutions. If you need highly defined scans of full colour images,for example, you’ll need a more high- end scanner. Contact our experts to discuss your needs.

Scanner hire scenario

Companies rent scanners for a range of reasons – your needs will naturally influence your choice of scanner:

  • Events: Scanning photo IDs, tickets, vouchers and other customer details? A lightweight, portable machine is ideal. Barcode scanners may also be useful here.

  • Office hire: Renting out office space for a specific time period, such as a political campaign, examination or on-site project? A multifunction printer/photocopier/scanner is just the ticket.

  • 3D design project: Do you need 3D scanner rental for a particular design or research project? Hiring a 3D scanner and accompanying software is definitely the way to go.

For whatever reason you need to rent a scanner, our friendly teams can help you select, install and start scanning anything you need with the right machine. Contact us today and tell us about your requirements.
