Get a UK scanning address

Our virtual addresses can be used for all mail and parcel deliveries. Choose from several options, such as a free PO Box, London Street Address or Redirection address - every address type has access to our mail scanning feature. Just update your delivery information with your new scanning address, and your post will be delivered to our secure mail facility.

Digitising your post

When mail arrives for you, we’ll scan it for you to view online. You can set preferences such as asking us to open and scan every letter, or just uploading a copy of the outside envelope. If you receive any parcels, we’ll take a photo instead. You can access your digitised mail via our platform, where you can manage your post and take additional actions such as storing, forwarding and more.

Our online mail management platform

After we digitise your post, you can use our platform to view and manage your mail from wherever you are. Available on a web browser or through an iOS or Android app, you can read your scanned mail items and decide what happens next:

  1. Ask us to open and scan any unopened envelopes
  2. Tag and organise your digital mail items.
  3. Request that we forward mail on to another address worldwide.
  4. Ask us to destroy the physical copy of your letter.

Post scanning integrations

Our platform also integrates with cloud services such as Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox and Evernote. Seamlessly connect UK Postbox with your storage systems to have your scanned post automatically saved in your existing systems.

Privacy protected

Keeping your scanned post secure

The security of your mail is paramount to us, and we have several processes and legislations in place that help us provide security to our customers. When your post is scanned into our platform, we encrypt the data being passed. We operate from a single scanning facility, making securing the premises easier than working from several smaller locations.

We’re also governed by the EU GDPR legislation, Money Laundering Regulations, and we’re registered with the Information Comissioner’s Office (ICO No. ZA038907). Read our privacy policy to learn more.
