How to Avoid the message "Object Already Exist in Active Directory"

We are in the process of re-imaging Windows computers Win 7 to Win 10. at the end when we rename computers and rejoin them to the domain manually, we get the message  "Object Already Exist in Active Directory".
we ll have to delete computer object in AD in order to rejoin it to the domain.

Is there a work around that enables us to rejoin computer to the domain without touching AD.

Thank you
