Letters in a virtual mailbox

mail forwarding

Because all mail is forwarded,  rather than being collected in person,  you can hold an account at any of our six regional Mail Centres,  and your letters or parcels will still reach you at the speed of First Class post or Private Courier,  wherever you might be in the world!   PLUS   we don't charge for forwarding,  all you pay is the onward postage,  at cost!

letter scanning

By far the fastest growing and most popular of our virtual address services is Scan & View.   Enjoy instant access to your letter mail via your own secure Scan Viewer,  which offers you a range of options for each letter;  save,  download to print,  delete or destroy an individual item.

uk mail centres

We currently have six regional Mail Centres across the UK for you to choose from.   The three Mail Centre locations accented in white are those due to launch early in 2020,  and for which licence applications are now being invited.

We realise that many people prefer an address that either reflects their place of origin  (even though they may now live abroad!),  and some business mailbox account holders may want to present a 'local' face to their customers.   Our national network of regional Mail Centres across the UK has been designed to provide just such coverage,  detailed in the descriptions below.

south wales

Our longest established regional Mail Centre is located in central Swansea,  ideally situated to provide a generic South Wales address for customers from Cardiff,  Pembrokeshire,  Newport,  Bridgend,  Llanelli or Carmarthen.


Our Midlands regional Mail Centre is located in Telford,  providing virtual accommodation addresses to customers from Stoke in the north,  Nottingham and Derby to the east and south across the rest of the West Midlands including Birmingham,  Wolverhampton,  Dudley and Worcester.

south east

Located in Cambridgeshire,  this Centre provides a prestigious accommodation address close to London,  for customers across the capital,  the home counties,  Essex and East Anglia  including Northampton,  Bedford,  Luton and Watford,  Colchester and Romford.

northern ireland

Providing a UK address in Northern Ireland,  this brand new Mail Centre,  serving the entire BT postcode area including Belfast and Londonderry / Derry,  is already proving an attractive option to customers from the Republic of Ireland,  perhaps as a hedge against Brexit.

south west

With a central Taunton address,  our South West regional Mail Centre provides a west country presence for customers wanting a PO Box close to Bristol and Gloucester.  Serving Swindon,  Bath and Bournemouth,  plus Plymouth,  Exeter and Torquay in Devon.


The expost Scottish Mail Centre has been serving customers with virtual addresses north of the border for the past two years.  With an address in Dunfermline,  just north of Edinburgh, serves customers from Glasgow and Dundee,  to Aberdeen and the Highlands.


We are looking for a prime location within London to launch this,  our flagship Mail Centre,  with exclusivity across the whole of the Capital and the Southern Counties of Kent,  Surrey and Sussex.

. . .the same price, the difference is how they can be used

a private mailbox

A Private account is ideal for individuals or families wanting a mailbox for their personal post,  with each account being able to receive letters and parcels for up to five individually named Users.
