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 full-time in static caravans,  tourers and motorhomes.

Some choose to stay on official 'Residential' sites and pay their utilities 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 office,  and using a friend or relative's address for your correspondence is fraught with complications.


Business and Private Mailbox UK address examples

the solution

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  ( read about 'Poste Restante' in forwarding ).

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 vanpost mailbox has a real postal address that it inherits from the Mail Centre of your choice.

selecting a regional mail centre

We currently have five regional Mail Centres around the UK,  with Northern Ireland scheduled for launch in October of this year.   Because all mail is forwarded,  rather than being collected in person,  you can hold an address at any regional Centre and your important letters or parcels will still reach you at the speed of First Class post!

We realise that many people prefer an address that is either local to their static van,  or,  for those constantly travelling,  to their previous fixed residence.   Our national network of regional Mail Centres has been designed to provide just such coverage,  outlined below.

south wales

Our longest established regional Mail Centre is located in central Swansea,  ideally situated to provide a generic South Wales address for customers from Cardiff,  Newport,  Bridgend,  Pembrokeshire,  Llanelli or Carmarthen.


The Scottish regional Mail Centre is located in Dunfermline. . .   a few miles north of Edinburgh,  and is popular with customers from Glasgow,  Dundee,  Aberdeen or Inverness,  looking for a virtual correspondence address in Scotland.

south east

Located in Cambridgeshire,  this Centre provides a prestigious accommodation address close to London,  serving customers across the whole of the home counties,  including;  Luton,  Bedford and Watford. . .  but is also Northampton,  Milton Keynes and Essex to the east.


Our Midlands regional Mail Centre in Telford,  provides cheap virtual accommodation addresses to customers from Stoke in the north,  Nottingham and Derby to the east,  and south across the entire West Midlands. . .   including Dudley,  Birmingham,  Wolverhampton and Worcester.

south west

With an address in central Taunton,  the South West regional Mail Centre provides a west country presence for customers wanting a virtual PO Box close to Bristol and Gloucester.   Serving Plymouth,  Exeter and Torquay in Devon,  plus Swindon,  Bath and Bournemouth.

northern ireland

Providing a UK address in Northern Ireland,  this brand new Mail Centre,  serving the entire BT postcode area including Belfast and Londonderry / Derry,  is an attractive option to customers from Eire,  perhaps as a hedge against Brexit?

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,  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 up to four Companies,  at no extra charge.
