putting you on the postal map!

Living in a motorhome?  You can still have your mail delivered via van post!

Over half a million people in the UK live year-round in static caravans,  tourers and motorhomes.

Some choose to stay on official 'Residential' sites and pay their utilities, water rates and council tax just like anyone else.   The majority,  however,  own or rent a van on Holiday Parks,  which often close down for a month or so each year in order to maintain their non-residential status.

the problem is...

Whichever type of site you choose,  you will soon discover that life can be a pain without a genuine,  Royal Mail postal address for your bank,  credit card provider,  insurance company,  the passport office,  DVLA,  TV Licensing,  HMRC or DWP.   Even on-line retailers won't deliver to a numbered PO box,  or leave parcels with your Park's reception,  and using a friend's address is the fastest way to lose friends!

business or private. . .

which do I need and how do they differ?

Although both can receive letters and parcels for up to five named Users and are the same price, the Data Protection Act means that we need to record the status of each mailbox so,  if your account is only to be used for your own personal correspondence,  select Private.

Click on Business if you intend to use your accommodation address for any kind of commerce or trading, or if you want to include a business name as a User.   As a bonus,  if you take a 12 month Business account you can also use it as the registered office address for a Company.
