Who uses scanmypost?

Anyone who wants to keep their address private, or who is looking for an efficient alternative to a UK PO Box, or who wants to remove physical post from the home or office, or who wants to manage and store post online.

Professional alternative to a PO Box

Make your business look much more established than if you use your home address. Sign up and receive a geographical address and not a typical PO Box.

No matter where you, or your business is located, your unique scanmypost address will ensure that you have a permanent physical address.

Keep your home address private

Retain the privacy of your home address, especially if you’re a company director or run a business from home. A PO Box alternative can provide you with extra protection so you can avoid any unwanted visitors on your doorstep.

By having your mail sent to your scanmypost address will also help to reduce your chances of falling victim to identity fraud.

Parcels accepted from all couriers

Unlike a PO Box, parcels from all couriers, and not just from Royal Mail, can be accepted and forwarded for a small fee. Any post addressed to you or to your business will be scanned and made available for viewing the very same day.
