    I currently have a PO Box for my business mail but I'm convinced I don't receive much of the mail that's sent to it.

    Looking for a cheap, reliable alternative.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    I use to have forwarding address from oneoffice. I think it's the cheapest.

    Check oneoffice(dot)com

    Would a virtual office something like this do the trick I've no affiliation with the company by the way just the first one in google.
    Might be better to go with a local company were you can easily go pick up the mail.

    Regus is the most expensive though ;) I know, I've checked some time ago.

    Have a look at scanmypost.co.uk

    Depends on what you need but if basic post forwarding in small volumes they are one of the cheapest I've found

    Who have you had problems with?

    I use UKPostbox.com (no affiliation, just a customer).

    They have been pretty good for me over the last few years and although I haven't compared them against others, their prices do seem reasonable to me.

    I haven't used either, but have come across both LondonPresence.com and YourCityOffice.com before which both offer mail forwarding.

    Hadn't really thought about the growth in these type of address services before, I suppose that providing the 'registrant' details are correct, there is no-reason not to use such address details for domain registrations.

    however the issue is that if you search for these addresses you can easily spot that they are mail drop addresses and not unique. Still for the average punter it may look better.

    That's a bargain price for a year . Good for anyone who needs a PO box address .

    Thank you for all your recommendations. Think I'm going to go with Mail Box Etc, as a local address would would be useful.

    I had an address at MBE in Cambridge and they did not once ask me for ID to collect my post. I only used to check it occasionally and most of the time someone new who I had never seen before (and hence had never seen me) served me but they never verified my identity when collecting mail! Not even once. When you consider that the address you are given includes your mail box number in it e.g. Suite 125, XYZ Street, etc etc... anyone can see what your box number is and if the staff aren't checking people's identity in the shop and are just handing over the box contents... well that's why I left.
