ValueMAX

Introducing ValueMAX, our new Asset Protection Plan

When disaster strikes, are you able to get your business back up and running quickly?

Research has found that 90 per cent of smaller companies fail within a year if they don’t resume operations within 5 days and that 40 per cent of businesses don’t even reopen after a disaster.

If your Pitney Bowes equipment gets damaged or stolen, knowing that you can get it repaired or replaced at no additional cost, can give you additional peace of mind. That’s why we have introduced ValueMAX, our Asset Protection Plan.

ValueMAX

 

 

ValueMAX enables you to have stolen, damaged, or destroyed equipment repaired or replaced. This includes delivery and installation of the replacement equipment.

You can add ValueMAX when you sign a new lease under EMA (Equipment Maintenance Agreement). We charge a low monthly fee, calculated based on the value of your equipment. This is added to your monthly invoice.

ValueMax FAQs

What is ValueMAX®?

ValueMAX is a repair/replacement service for leased equipment. Although it is not insurance, ValueMAX, which is provided by Pitney Bowes, enables you to have stolen, damaged, or destroyed equipment repaired or replaced at no additional cost. The only cost for this service is a flat, low, monthly fee. This benefit is not applicable if any damage is caused to the equipment through your gross negligence, wilful misconduct, normal wear and tear, or if you are in default under your Pitney Bowes lease.

How does the ValueMAX program work?

With the ValueMAX service, you receive complete, no-hassle replacement or repair at no additional cost. This includes delivery and installation of replacement equipment. There is no depreciation allowance, or a deductible under this program.

What is the difference between ValueMAX and my own insurance?

ValueMAX is not insurance. ValueMAX is the Asset Protection Program provided by Pitney Bowes in the event of theft, damage, or destruction to equipment leased from Pitney Bowes. ValueMAX does not have any deductibles or exclusions, other than normal wear and tear, gross negligence or wilful misconduct on the part of the lessee or default under the lease.

Many insurance policies may have high deductibles in order to keep premium costs down, and in many cases, may have exclusions (i.e., flood or water damage, power surge, earthquake, accidents). In many cases, you may end up having to pay out of pocket for repair or replacement if you are not signed up to ValueMAX.

What is the difference between ValueMAX and an Equipment Maintenance Agreement (EMA)?

ValueMAX protects the equipment against any loss event, other than wear and tear, gross negligence, or wilful misconduct on the part of the lessee or default under the lease. Equipment Maintenance Agreements (EMA) covers the equipment for service and normal wear and tear, with the exceptions noted in that EMA.

When does the ValueMAX program kick-in?

The ValueMAX program takes effect once the Rental Agreement is signed by both the client and Pitney Bowes.
