specialist mailboxes for british expats
Every day, another 400 UK nationals leave these shores to live, work or retire abroad. But, whether you are relocating to Alicante or Australia, one challenge remains the same. Maintaining a UK postal address for your bank, insurance company, the passport office, HMRC or the DVLA can be a real lifeline, especially when on-line retailers and couriers won't deliver abroad or to a numbered PO box!
is a virtual mailbox account from expost. . .
. . .with a real uk street address, five users per account, a full parcel service and international mail forwarding. A simple choice of Private or Business mailboxes means that, whether you need a UK postal address for your own personal and family correspondence, or to register a Limited Company and trade in the UK, the solution is here.
how it works
Your letters, packets and parcels are delivered to your choice of Mail Centre where they are identified by your registered user names, sorted and stored in your mailbox. You then use your secure on-line control panel to tell us how and when to scan or physically forward your post, by Royal Mail or private courier, anywhere in the world. It really is that simple!
affordable, fixed, pricing
guaranteed for the lifetime of your account!
Already cheaper than a numbered PO box from the royal mail, our straightforward charges are frozen for as long as you hold a continuous account with us. Two years, twelve years or twenty years from now, you will only ever pay the prices as they are shown in this website on the day you register. We absolutely guarantee never to charge you more to renew your account, handle your mail or scan your letters! Click on the charges link above for a full rate card.
daily, weekly, monthly or only on demand
You tell us when, where, and how you want your mail forwarding. Letters, packets and parcels up to a hefty 20Kg can all be sent as part of our standard service, to almost any country in the World, and all you pay is the onward postage, no matter how much mail you receive or how often you have it sent on to you. Follow the forwarding link above for more information.

always here when you need us
Our Mail Centres are open 24 hours a day, 364 days a year to receive, sign-for and secure your letter post and parcels. Most importantly for expats, live support is available by telephone or email from 8am ( UK time ) every weekday morning, including Saturdays and Bank Holidays, ( although in practice, there is usually a member of the management team here from 5am! ) so you always have access to our help and advice when you need it.

our aims & statements
Expost is not a fraudster's charter. Having been in business for over 18 years we know that, on occasion, people will find a mailbox company on the web, invent a random address without reference to the providers, then use it to afford themselves unlawful and undeserved credibility.
If that is your intention, please go elsewhere! Mail that arrives at any of our Mail Centres without a valid account is returned immediately to the sender, by 1st Class Post, as 'not known at this address'.
We do not condone the unlawful use of our services and will, if any such activity is brought to our attention, share information with the relevant authorities and may suspend or close the account without notice.
your security & privacy
We place the security of your mail and personal data above all other considerations. Your data is held on secure private cloud servers, and is encrypted.
We will never sell or share your data with any third party business, organisation or individual.
our service & support
Every one of us strives to deliver a faultless service with friendly, knowledgable and accessible customer support and we promise to address any shortfall immediately, with as little inconvenience to you, the customer, as is possible.
