What is a virtual postal address?

Our virtual postal addresses are locations that you can use for all manner of UK based address needs. They’re not physical locations that you can visit, but they are based on the physical locations we operate from. Your virtual postal address will be entirely unique to you, and it allows you to have an address presence in the UK without having to live here.

Who can benefit from a virtual mailing address?

Virtual mailing addresses are helpful to different people for different reasons, and we don’t place any limits on how your address is used; it’s entirely up to you. Some of the most popular reasons customers sign up to our virtual mailing address service are:

  • Businesses who are registering their company in the UK
  • People who are relocating away from the UK
  • Individuals who are living outside of the UK
  • Students who frequently change their addresses

Frequently asked questions about virtual addresses:

  1. What is a virtual mailing address?

    A virtual mailing address is a location attached to our online mail management system that can be used as a delivery address for mail and parcels. Receive your post and access your items just like you would an email, on any device, from anywhere, at any time.

  2. What if something needs to be signed for?

    Usually it’s only packages and parcels which need to be signed for. If you need to receive a parcel, just have it shipped to your dedicated address and we’ll receive them on your behalf. From there you can manage your parcel just like any other mail, such as asking that we forward it to you, open and take a picture of the contents, or consolidate multiple parcels into one consignment; it’s up to you.

  3. Can I have more than one PO Box Address?

    We don’t restrict you to a single PO Box address, or a geographical part of the UK. You can have one in each of our major UK city locations, and they’ll all feed into our advanced mail management platform.

  4. How long will you store my letters and parcels for?

    By default, we store all physical mail and packages for 30 days free of charge. If you need us to store them for longer, please refer to our pricing guide. You can also store all letters in digital format for as long as you need within our platform!

  5. How secure is the UK Postbox Service?

    We process post and parcels at a single high security location in the UK. Having only a single sorting office allows us to have maximum security measures in place, so that we can easily monitor our premises, staff and of course, your post.

    Our advanced online mail app is hosted on world class Microsoft Azure systems. All traffic between you and the app is encrypted using HTTPS, and we’ll soon be introducing optional two factor authentication.
