How to Rent a Meter:
Click on meter name (orange link above), then click RENT, and ADD TO CART. The rental deposit amount is shown.
Click PROCEED TO CHECKOUT. Fill in address screens and shipping method (Priority mail is a good value you usually receive it 2-3 days after it ships). Then enter Visa, Mastercard, or Discover credit or debit card. When you finish checkout you are charged the rental deposit and shipping to you.
The rental meter is shipped usually within 1 day. It includes instructions for using the meter, an invoice showing what you paid, and other info. The tracking number is emailed to you from Stamps.com or UPS.
The rental starts the day it is shipped to you and ends the day it is received back; all days are counted for the rental, including days while shipping, weekends and holidays. When we receive it back, the rental deposit is refunded to you minus the rental fee for each day (shown in table above). Please allow one week after meter is returned for the refund to show on your credit card.
Minimum rental is 1-week: If meter is received back here sooner we still charge for 7-days (due to our fixed costs).
You can keep the meter longer if you want (no maximum time). If you keep this meter until the total rental fees equals your deposit, then there are no more fees due and no refund, and you own the meter and there is no need to return it. Rental fees are therefore 100% applied to purchase for the deposit amount if you decide to keep the rental meter, with a 1-year warranty from the date you purchased it, like "Rent-to-Own".
Returning the meter: You arrange and pay for return shipping with postage stamps or at a post office or ups store, or use a web site like www.usps.com/ship/online-shipping.htm or www.stamps.com/welcome/click-print-ship/ or FedEx.com or UPS.com
Please include the black carry pouch, booklet, and invoice number or order number. Return meter to:
367 Arlington St
Acton, MA 01720
Meters are checked after each rental. Magnetic Sciences is not liable for any damages arising out of the rental, use or performance of this meter (see Disclaimers).
