Avoid a crowded mailbox with the storage service from PriPost

The holiday time has come and of course that is a time to enjoy. Unfortunately, it is also a time that burglars try to make the move, because people are away from home for a long time. An overflowing letterbox or a doormat with a large stack of envelopes gives them a clear signal that the residents are not at home for the time being. In the past, many people used PostNL’s storage service to temporarily stop their mail during the holidays, but that service no longer exists

The solution: store, forward or scan mail

Fortunately PriPost offers a solution and that is also much more practical than the traditional storage service. PriPost offers an alternative postal address, which means that from now on you have access to your mail anytime and anywhere. Even when you are abroad. You thus not only prevent an overflowing letterbox, but also that you miss important mail. In addition to storing mail, we can also forward or scan the mail.

How it works?

You can have a new postal address within minutes. This is quickly arranged via You choose your unique Postbox number and together with one of the different addresses that we have available (in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Leidschendam and Barcelona), this will be your new postal address. You can then communicate this postal address directly to all your relations and business organizations. If they want to send mail to you, they will now use that address with your unique Postbox number.

An overflowing letterbox during the holidays

When you have requested a Postbox, you get direct access to the on-line customer portal. Here you can easily set how we should process your mail. For example, we can also receive packages for you and registered documents. We can also filter advertisements free of charge if you wish.

A Postbox at PriPost versus the PostNL storage service

The former PostNL storage service quickly cost tens of euro’s a week and only offered a solution for a few weeks.
A Postbox from PriPost is many times cheaper and offers a solution for the long term. Not only for every vacation, but also when you move. You just have to give us your new address and we will send the mail there from now on. An additional advantage is that you no longer have to provide your private address everywhere. What is also very handy is that we can receive packages for you. So you don’t have to be at home every time. We can consolidate the packages into 1 large package and send it on when it suits you.

A few frequently asked questions

We can consolidate the packages into 1 large package and send it on when it suits you.

PostNL and Sandd are mail deliverers. In other words, they are called in by companies to deliver their mail.
When you request the PostNL forwarding service, PostNL can therefore only forward the mail for which they are engaged. If your insurer has chosen to send the mail via Sandd, PostNL will not do anything with this. In short, you will therefore always have to request the Sandd forwarding service. The big disadvantage is that you quickly lose between 60 and 100 euros for 2 weeks … Another major disadvantage, which many people do not know, is that it takes about 2 weeks to request the forwarding service.

Requesting a mailing address from PriPost is arranged in a few minutes and then you are ready for all your future vacations. At our addresses all mail arrives from all deliverers, just like at your home. We will then process the mail by saving it, scanning it or forwarding it.

Can PriPost intercept the mail for me?

No, luckily that is not possible. It would be very dangerous if someone other than yourself could ask your bank, tax authorities, insurer and other agencies to send your mail somewhere else. That is something that you can easily do yourself. We have a handy checklist for you so that you don’t forget to let anyone know about your new mailing address.

Can I only use PriPost for the duration of my vacation?

PriPost offers a long-term solution. So not only for the coming vacation but also for all subsequent vacations. When you start using a Postbox from PriPost you have to inform all your relations and authorities from whom you receive mail about your new mailing address. Of course you don’t do this to tell them after 2 weeks of vacation that they have to turn the address back …
