Carolina Wholesale, the Eighties, Nineties and Today

I’m digging into the memory banks for this. From 1986-1998 I was the Founder of Atlantic Office Systems in New Jersey. In the beginning Atlantic Office Systems was not an Authorized Dealer for any manufacturer. Atlantic Office Systems rose from the ashes of Copy Machine Specialists (Authorized Minolta copier dealer in central New Jersey) after they closed their doors in early 1986. I still remember the end quite clearly. There was not enough cash to make payroll for everyone, and as we...

We were just talking about the 80's Thursday and how the first company my dad worked for would buy like 75-100 minolta's at a time and they would be gone in a matter of a few days and he was wholesaling them to anyone, anywhere, who would buy them including their own market. Then the sales reps were having to go up against their own boxes in deals being sold by other people.

Leasing Companies & Wholesalers

Art Post ·
I just made mention of this. Couple of questions for everyone.... Will almost all dealers buying back the off-lease copiers will this hurt the wholesalers? On one hand leasing company can't find leases because dealers can't deliver and those that can delivery new copiers are buying the used devices from the leasing companies. This can't be good can it?

@fisher thanx for the response, we're seeing the opposite when buying end of lease/upgrades from the leasing companies for most cases. You are correct that there are many that will not move on price and then we get to buy them from a wholesaler at a better price. It makes no sense also

We've had no issue sourcing very nice low meter pre-owned from our wholesale contacts so far. Even current model Ricohs. We rarely take leasing company buyouts because we buy the same machines far cheaper from the brokers. If the leasing companies were smart they would go out of their way to get the dealers to take the buyouts. They don't though.
