Second Hand Used Franking Machines & Ebay Advice
Franking machines are not like your typical piece of office machinery. To be able to re-use them you need to register the machine to be able to recredit/top up the machine. In addition you’ll need a Royal Mail license to use it. This whole reconnecting/re licensing process can cost a substantial amount of money and usually much more that you’ll probably pay for the machine.
One recent problem is that franking machines are being listed on Ebay despite being a ‘prohibited item’. Most of these franking machines are either leased or rented from the manufacturer and when a machine is not returned to the manufacturer at the end of a rental or lease its listed as lost or stolen and will not be able to be relicensed.
If you get offered a second hand franker always check the meter / serial number with the manufacturer. This is the number that starts with letters followed by a sequence of numbers such as N12346567 or PB1234567.
