specialist mailboxes for british expats

Every day,  another 400 UK nationals leave these shores to live,  work or retire abroad. . .   but,  whether you relocate 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 won't deliver abroad or to a numbered PO box!

Moving abroad? You'll need to keep an address in the UK!

the solution

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,  to register a Limited Company or to provide a domestic returns address for your customers,  the solution is here.

how it works

Your letters,  packets and parcels are delivered to our 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 mail,  anywhere in the world.

our aims & statements

legal notice

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.  Any mail that arrives 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 such activity is brought to our attention,  share information with the relevant authorities and 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 a secure server, in a defended data centre and your password 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 in our service immediately, with as little inconvenience to the customer as is possible.
