Royal Mail Redirection

Redirection services provided by Royal Mail are primarily a temporary service, used when a business or residential property occupier move from one address to a new address. The service can be great for this, but only when moving from one long term address to another long term address, otherwise it can get very costly.

Redirection is very simple to implement, you just contact Royal Mail and tell them the address your currently at and the address your moving to, importantly though you must tell them the names of whom are moving address. With business redirection you will need to provide and pay for each business name / trading name that mail arrives under for your company, much the same for residential, you provide all the full names of any recipients that are moving to the new address.

Royal Mail will then automatically redirect any post addressed to the named recipients and deliver the items to the new address. At present you can set this service up for 3, 6 or 12 months. We have outlined the cost of these Royal Mail redirection services below:


Royal Mail PO Boxes

PO Boxes are fast becoming a thing of the past, the term PO Box in the UK is almost immediately associated with the idea of trying to hide from or deceive the sender. Then you have the timely and manual task of visiting the box to collect mail each day, week or month. Royal Mail do still provide this service though but it comes at a cost. There is also the issue that a lot of places will not accept a PO Box as an address. PO Box pricing from Royal Mail is shown below, alongside an OfficeServ Virtual Office Package that would provide the same service with lots more added benefits, including a real street address not a PO Box one:
