outposting

sending mail from a virtual address

Why do you have a mailbox with a UK street address?   Perhaps you use expatpost because you don't want anyone to know where you live or work,  or that you have relocated abroad.   Do you really want to reply to letters,  or return that official form,  with a foreign stamp on the envelope or an incorrect postmark?

Outpost is a unique service for British expats that is available to both Private and Business mailbox account customers.   Use outpost and your letters or parcels will be delivered,  by the Royal Mail,  with a postmark that matches your virtual address!

Example Outpost mail service address for expats
how to use outpost

It couldn't be simpler.   Address and seal the outpost items to be posted and enclose them in an outer envelope;  but don't apply stamps,  that's all part of the service!

Write your mailbox Key on the back of the outer envelope to identify your account and address it to 'Outpost' at your chosen Mail Centre.

On arrival at the Centre,  your outpost enclosure envelope will be opened and the letters it contains will be posted,  the same day,  via a local Post Office,  so that there is no indication that they have been professionally processed.

fees and restrictions

There are no restrictions.   You can use outpost for items up to the Royal Mail's Small Parcel size format,  with any global destination address,  by any delivery method including international signed-for or private courier.

There are no set-up charges,  if you have a mailbox account,  you can use outpost!

Our normal handling fees apply,  plus postage at cost,  and a single manual handling surcharge to process each outpost consignment,  regardless of the number of items it contains!
