Buy or Rent a Pitney Bowes Franking Machine
Now that you know a little more about the range of Pitney Bowes franking machines that are available, you're next choice is whether to buy or rent a machine. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. The main advantage to buying is that the overall running costs tend to be lower, but you have to put all the money upfront.
Renting on the other hand means you have to pay a monthly fee (from £16.99 to several hundred pounds), but don't have to shell out a large sum at the outset. Moreover, you may have more flexibility if you want to upgrade your machine in the future.
