putting you on the postal map!
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 nightmare without a genuine, Royal Mail postal address for your bank, credit card provider, insurance company, the passport office, DVLA, TV Licensing, HMRC or DWP. On-line retailers and their couriers 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!
is a virtual mailbox account from expost. . .
Costing just 55p a day, an account will give you a real UK street address, with up to five different named users, free mail forwarding and a scan to email option for urgent letters. You can now have a fixed postal address for your own private correspondence ( including packets and parcels ), or for business use. . . living in a static caravan no longer means that you can't trade on Ebay, Etsy or Amazon!
it really is very simple
Your letters, packets and parcels are delivered to your unique address at our Mail Centre where they are identified by any of your five User names, signed-for if necessary, sorted and stored in your mailbox. You can then log in to your secure on-line control panel at any time and tell us how, when and where you want us to physically forward your mail.
your names, our addresses
Because many businesses, banks, credit card and insurance companies, couriers and authorities, including HMRC and the DVLA, will not deliver to, or even recognise, an obviously numbered PO box, every expost mailbox has a real postal address that it inherits from the Mail Centre of your choice.
selecting a regional mail centre
During registration, you will be asked to select the regional Mail Centre address that you would prefer.
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 GDPR 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 your Companies, at no extra charge.
