The Cost Of A Franking Machine
A common question we receive here at Mailcoms is “How much does a franking machine cost” and the answer does depend on various factors. These factors include the amount you intend to send on a daily basis, the features you wish to have, purchasing or renting the machine and more. Take a look below at the many factors that affect the cost of getting a franking machine for your business.
Some businesses only send as little as 5 letters per day. Other businesses send up to 1000 items per day. The volume really does vary from business to business. However, no matter how much mail you send on a daily basis, there is a perfect franking machine for you. Here at Mailcoms we have several franking machines that are ideal for certain volumes of mail, take a quick look below:
– Mailstart+ | Entry level franking machine | Ideal for 20 items a day
– Mailbase | Low volume franking machine | Ideal for 100 items a day
– Mailbase+ | Low to mid volume franking machine | Ideal for 300 items a day
– Mailbase Speed | Mid volume franking machine | Ideal for 500 items a day
– Send Pro Series | High volume franking machine | Ideal for 800 items a day or more
Purchase Or Renting
Another key factor that can dictate the price you’ll pay is whether you buy or rent the machine. Some businesses are not always sure about buying a franking machine outright as it can be a large upfront cost. However you can always rent a franking machine if it is more ideal.
