How much does a franking machine cost?
response from John Englund
Purchasing a new franking machine can cost you as little as £1,000 and prices will vary depending on the volume of franking the machine can manage per day and whether or not you choose to purchase a heavy-duty model (in which case the price may exceed £20,000). Many businesses are a bit frightened by these figures and as a result choose to begin by leasing their first franking machine. Major franking machine manufacturers such as Pitney Bowes and Neopost offer leased franking machines, which helps you avoid a big upfront outlay. Leasing also offers the option to buy at the end of the contract or to upgrade to newer models during the term of the contract. You could also save money by purchasing a secondhand model. Remember that the money you save over time by using a franking machine instead of postage stamps will offset some of the cost of acquiring one!
