One of the unusual aspects about getting a postage meter for your business is that you simply can't buy them: Federal law only permits you to lease them. But as with any purchase or lease, it's helpful to know what other users are paying so you can budget accordingly. We've pulled together a wide range of responses from other BuyerZone users who leased postage meters using our service, and we've collected them here help set your expectations.

One benefit to leasing postage meters is the manufacturer maintains responsibility for repairing the unit so you don't incur those expenses. They can also offer service contracts for the rest of your mailing equipment and build the charges into your monthly rates. You can expect the rates to fall somewhere in between $19.99 and $29.99

As you'll read in many of these quotes, dealers will often give you a free trial of a meter for 30, 60, or 90 days. Depending on the length of the contract you sign, the dealer may also include freebies such as a small amount of initial postage ($20 to $30), rate protection, unlimited resets, and more. When you're committing to an ongoing monthly expense like a lease, it's a nice gesture on the part of the vendor to give you at least a token discount.

It's also worth keeping in mind that while you can't purchase postage meters outright, you can choose to lease or purchase other postage equipment, such as postage meter bases, postage scales, letter folding equipment, and sealers. You may be able to save money in the long run by purchasing the accessories, although the hassles of making sure they integrate smoothly with your leased meter may make it not worthwhile.
