How much do I need to budget for a franking machine?
You can find a basic franking machine for a few hundred pounds and models with more capabilities can cost in the thousands. There are several ways to keep the price down, including renting or leasing a franking machine. This helps you avoid a big upfront outlay and you can get affordable monthly payments. And with leasing you also have the option to buy at the end of your lease and to upgrade to newer models during your leasing contract. You can also purchase a secondhand model and save money. It’s best to compare supplier quotes to get a sense of how much you’ll need to pay. And don’t forget that the savings you make with your franking machine will offset some of the cost of acquiring one!
