What is a virtual postal address?

A virtual mailing or postal address gives you one or more physical locations in the UK to have your letters and parcels sent to. Then you’re able to log in, view, open, read and forward your post and parcels, wherever you are in the world.

Sometimes called “hybrid mail forwarding” or “virtual mail forwarding”, a virtual address allows you to dictate what happens to your post, on an item-by-item basis - rather than redirecting everything to a single location.

Frequently asked questions about virtual addresses:

  1. What is a virtual mailing address?

    A virtual mailing address is one or multiple, physical postal locations attached to a smart online portal. Receive your post like you do emails, access them from anywhere, and control how they are managed. On any device, from anywhere, at any time.

  2. What if something needs to be signed for?

    Usually it’s packages and parcels which need a signature. If you need to receive a parcel, have it shipped to your dedicated courier point address, which is issued after signup. When parcels arrive, we’ll handle them just like your other mail, forward, open, consolidate multiple orders, it’s up to you.

  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, then let us know, and we will provide you with a quote for archiving.

    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.
