Quadient (formerly Neopost) has been manufacturing franking machines for decades and was founded in 1924 in the UK. The Quadient range of franking machines caters for the small office or home office, the expanding medium sized company and the corporate sized mailroom serving hundreds of employees.

Quadient franking machine prices start from as cheap as £995 for an entry level machine right up to more than £19,000 without adding any optional extras. One thing that is certain is the sheer quality and strength of Quadient equipment and Quadient is reported to be the Europe's number one mailroom equipment supplier.

Quadient's franking machines are divided into three categories: low volume, mid volume and high volume.

Quadient rental vs buying

In the UK you can either hire a Quadient franking machine or you can buy it outright. There are advantages and disadvantages to either option. The advantages of renting a franking machine include the flexibility to upgrade the model as the business expands, as well as spreading the cost over the life of the asset.

The advantage to buying one is a potential lower cost of ownership, but also means you're responsible should the machine break.

Why use a franking machine?

Using a franking machine will provide instant discounts with second class mail that would normally cost 55p using stamps will cost 37p with a franking machine. First class letters up to 100g in weight will cost 51p using a franking machine opposed to 64p without.

Bulk mail such as that sent by direct marketing companies can achieve even greater discounts. Using a franking machine avoids overcharging as the weighing scales calculate postage costs based on constantly updated rates.
