How to ship a mailstation or mailstation2 to Pitney Bowes

Products affected: mailstation™, mailstation2™


Refer to the diagram below to learn how to properly package your system before you ship it.



Important Notes: 

  • Be sure to transfer postage back to your account before you ship your meter.
  • If you are replacing the meter with a new one, keep the interface cord and scale (see top of image) to use with your new meter.
  • If you contact UPS for a pickup, you may be charged a fee. If you drop your package off at a location that accepts UPS packages for shipment, this fee can be avoided.

To ship the meter you will need the following:

  • Foam packing (two sections)
  • Shipping carton
  • Packing tape to close carton
  • Pre-paid shipping label

To prepare the meter for shipment, follow these instructions:

1. Unplug the scale, telephone line, and power cord
2. Place the meter on bottom of foam, ensuring it fits tightly within the sides
3. Place top foam over the meter as illustrated
4. If you are replacing the base meter only, don't return the Communication Device, scale and cables. If you are replacing the entire system, place the items in the appropriate cutouts as illustrated.
5. Tape the carton closed across the top and down both sides, using the packing tape provided
6. Remove the old shipping label from the carton
7. Apply the pre-paid shipping label 

NOTE: If a pre-paid shipping label is not enclosed, please contact customer support at 1-800-522-0020. A customer service representative will assist you. Retain the top portion of your shipping label for tracking purposes.
