PriPost offers an alternative to postNL’s mail retention service

PostNL no longer offers a mail retention service, they have stopped doing that. But fortunately you can use PriPost’s mail retention service. If you can’t receive mail for a while, for example because you’re staying abroad for a while, PriPost’s retention service is a practical solution. PriPost stores your mail and/or packages and forwards them to you when it suits you. We forward everything to the address you provide us at that time, at home or abroad.

In addition to storing mail, PriPost also offers other opportunities to receive mail when you are away from home for a longer period of time. We can also scan your mail as an example so that you receive everything digitally. This way you can be sure you won’t miss anything!

Questions and answers regarding mail retention

What is the maximum time limit to store mail?2019-07-13T12:16:25+02:00

There is no maximum time limit. We keep the mail as short or as long as you want. The moment we receive mail for you, we will send a message. We also send a reminder every week to prevent you from forgetting the mail and thereby incurring unnecessary costs. As soon as you want to receive the mail, you can indicate this via the inbox in the customer portal. We will then send the mail to the postal address on the date indicated by you.

My setting is forwarding once a month – are there any storage costs charged?2019-07-13T12:17:45+02:00

Storage costs are only charged if you have ‘forward on demand’ as your primary setting. So no, if you have forwarding with a certain frequency, no storage costs will be charged.

Can I have my stored mail destroyed or scanned?2019-07-10T16:05:29+02:00

Unfortunately this is not possible. Mail entered with a specific setting cannot be changed during the process. So we can only process this mail by forwarding it. You can specify a date via the inbox in the customer portal.

Can I change my ‘forwarding on request’ setting to scanning?2019-07-10T15:45:00+02:00

Yes, that is possible. It is true that the mail that has already been entered can only be forwarded. If you change the setting from forwarding to scanning, this will start the next day and only applies to new mail. More information about different scanning options you can find here.

Are costs charged for storing mail?2020-01-12T12:46:07+01:00

If you want us to keep the mail for you for longer than 14 days, a few cents will be charged per item. This is done in large vaults so that we are sure that your mail has been stored securely.
