ValueMAX Fee

There is a contractual obligation to protect your leased Pitney Bowes equipment from loss, damage or destruction.

A simple and easy way of waiving the obligation to insure our equipment is with Pitney Bowes’ ValueMAX programme.

ValueMAX is a waiver by us of your obligation to insure our equipment and where we assume the risk of loss or damage to the equipment upon payment of a ValueMAX fee.

ValueMax entitles you to a replacement of equipment at no additional cost and with no excess to pay; we aim to do this within 10 working days.

ValueMAX removes the need for you to pay for replacement equipment and process a claim via your insurance company.

The amount of this charge is confirmed by letter prior to the charge being applied to your Agreement.

ValueMAX will be charged on the second invoice of each new contract

If you already have adequate contents insurance and do not wish to take advantage of ValueMAX, please provide us with the following information:
  • Policy Number
  • Name of Insurer
  • Start and End Date of Certificate
This can be emailed to Customer Services

Alternatively, please contact us by calling 01 460 8700 option 5

Please ensure that you quote your Agreement number on all communications to us


Arrangement Fee

This is a one-off fee applied to your first invoice which covers the set-up of your new agreement and the shipping of equipment (where appropriate).

The amount of this fee is provided in the Terms and Conditions of your Agreement under the section ‘OTHER CHARGES PAYABLE BY YOU’.
