We scan your post

When your post arrives at our secure UK sorting facility, we’ll scan the envelope or take a photo of your parcel and upload them to our system. You’ll get a notification that new mail has arrived. Simply log into our platform, view the item preview and decide what you want to do next.

Your post is often private and confidential, so we give you complete control over how it’s handled. Only want us to scan unopened envelopes? No problem. Need us to automatically forward all mail to you? You can set this up via your account. Want us to scan the first page of each letter you receive? Fine by us. It’s your post, you tell us how it should be handled.

Read your mail online

If you’ve asked us to scan the contents of your letters, you’ll be able to read them online via our mail management software anywhere in the world, providing you have an internet connection. You can also connect Dropbox and Evernote to see your post in your favourite apps. Download digital items to save or print; you’ll never have to deal with the clutter of letters on your desk again.

Forward letters and parcels

Want to get physical copies of your letters or have them forwarded to someone else? No problem. You can request for items to be forwarded individually or as part of a batch to any address, anywhere in the world with competitive fees via popular shipping services. We handle your parcels too, and all addresses come with a free courier point address for you to have them sent to. Save money by consolidating multiple parcels into one consignment.

You may want us to store your letters for later viewing, or maybe you have some parcels that you want to consolidate with other expected deliveries. We’ll store your mail items for 30 days free of charge and offer competitive rates thereafter.

Ultimate privacy

Your privacy is of utmost importance to us. We operate a single secure UK sorting facility, which is monitored 24/7, with access restricted to security cleared personnel. As a private limited company, we’re subject to the General Data Protection Regulation, which states we must protect and never disclose personal or confidential information. It’s our commitment to privacy and security that’s led to over 10,000 individuals and businesses trusting us to look after their post.

Frequently asked questions about online post management:

  1. Is this service just for people from the UK?

    No, we have individuals and businesses from all over the world using our virtual post services.

  2. Do you automatically scan all of my post?

    It’s up to you. If you’d like us to, yes, but if you prefer, we can scan unopened envelopes, and you can then decide what happens next.

  3. Can I collect my post from you?

    No, we operate a “clean” mail room, where only security cleared personnel are allowed entry. This is for the security of everyone’s post.

  4. How long does it take for post to be scanned?

    During working hours, post will be processed and uploaded within a few hours of arriving at our Poole facility.

  5. What happens with parcels?

    Each of our accounts includes a free address for your parcels. If you receive a parcel, we’ll take a photo of the un-opened box, and notify you of its arrival. You can then decide if you’d like us to forward it to you, or store it until you’re ready.

  6. How secure is your service?

    Extremely. We operate out of a single location in the UK so that we can maintain the highest security possible. CCTV, security cleared staff, and strict procedures all protect your post and privacy. All of the data between you and our systems is secured by HTTPS encryption, and we’ve recently rolled out optional two factor authentication. Our servers are hosted on Microsoft Azure infrastructure, and are protected by their best in class security.

  7. How do I send a letter?
