  • I don’t know much about Franking machine, but somebody suggest me to look at this. We go to post office almost every day and we paid around £1000 per month for post office.
    I have look at your website. We always send recorded parcels rather than letters. So if franking machine can handle this? And where should we drop the parcels if we print the label with Franking machine at home?
    Thank you.

    • Yes, franking machines can handle almost all parcel types and delivery methods.

      Franking is cheaper in most (but not all cases). If you send signed for parcels under 2kg you can save up to £1.40 per parcel. So for example with that £1,000, you might be spending sending 100 1–2kg medium parcels. If that’s the case you’d pay only £8.60 per item rather then the standard £10 with a franking machine and thus save £140 a month.

      For this volume of mail you could get by with a basic machine like the Pitney Bowes DM50 which for a rental should run you around £20 a month depending on contract length and terms. Add to that ink, labels and annual maintenance and you’re still looking at no more than £40 a month. So you’re still up to £100 a month better off. To find out more I’d get in contact with a supplier near you.

      Finally in terms of drop off locations you probably won’t be able to used a regular franked mail post box, but you may be able to find parcel franked mail boxes in a local business park, get it collected and/or just bring it to your local post office for drop off.

      Hope that helps
