If you own a high-quality multifunction printer (MFP) for your business, you know they are not small machines you can quickly move around. These printers contain heavy materials like metal and can weigh more than 250 pounds, which is difficult for the average person to carry. 

Regardless, it's important to note that when moving MFPs, we do not recommend doing it yourself. Even if you possess superhuman strength levels, a printer's internal parts are delicate and require expert handling.   

For this reason, we encourage you to call us if you need to move your machine. Our service technicians will ensure that your copier is transported safely to where you need it.

If you attempt to move the machine yourself and an accident happens, you will be liable for any damages that may occur to the printer.
