émigrés and expatriates
Although leaving these shores to live abroad, expats still need to maintain a UK postal address in order to receive their bank statements, insurance documentation, driving licence renewals etc.
For this reason, British expatriates represent the largest single user group we service and this site has been designed to address their very specific needs.
temporary relocation abroad
People who are victims of flood or fire (disaster homeless), who are hospitalised for protracted periods, or working on long term projects away from home, use our Private mailbox services to control and manage their mail... and avoid the risk of identity theft!
persons of no fixed abode
Being of 'No Fixed Abode' does not necessarily mean 'homeless' :o)
Our mailbox holders include many retirees enjoying the highways and byways in luxury motorhomes, and live-aboard boaters on the canal systems of the UK and Europe.
The clients we really envy, however, are those sailing tropical waters with their mail on 'Hold', only requesting us to forward their mail every few months to a new paradise island!
anyone moving home...
Relocation is stressful at the best of times, especially overseas, often requiring an interim rental property, or properties, before final settling in a permanent home. Use one of our UK mailboxes, with free international forwarding, to ease the stress by removing the need to change your address several times during the process.
increased personal privacy
Many expatriate clients are in the process of separation or divorce, but still share a common address with a partner and use a mailbox to ensure the privacy of their postal communication.
for greater business security
Whether operated from home or a commercial base abroad, if your product has a high intrinsic value; branded cosmetics, mobile phones, jewellery etc., using a UK accommodation address will prevent your physical premises becoming a target for theft.
to simplify UK product returns
One of the most popular business uses of a mailbox is to provide a commercial sounding UK address for the return of products retailed on-line from abroad.

to protect sensitive businesses
If you operate a business which, whilst perfectly legal, might raise moral, ethical or religious concerns, or would be potentially 'embarrassing' for you or your customers, a mailbox and UK accommodation address with discreet international mail forwarding offers the solution. Real examples from amongst our customers include; a home business retailing 'adult' toys on-line and a gay expat dating service!
to create customer confidence
With more business than ever before being conducted by expats, from their new country of residence, the familiarity of a UK address offers a great deal more credibility and customer confidence than '1026 Chi Hei Apts. Jontiem Beach, Pattaya, Thailand'!
