Second Hand Used Franking Machines and 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 recreditit/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.

If you are looking for a used machine or low cost new machine please feel free to contact us on 08450 530 930 or visit our website at
